Applications / Re: Java applications

Give it a try!
Thanks, downloaded version 9.8, I'm not sure if this version will also run with Java 6 if I see on what date it did go pubic.
Okay, big package, lots of stuff which has to do with Windows, can be deleted to make room on your disk. Also complete JRE inside, can also be deleted. Even then, still a big program. Made a cmd file and I after starting that I got back that it needs version 52, that's some short for Java version 8. So a no go. Downloaded version 9.2 with
the remark that it runs in Java 6, but no, also here I get back version 52 ie Java version 8. Probably some versions down it will run, but with what bugs?

Internet / Re: Password Managers

You can also go to my Java pages, there are 4 Java programs which can hold your passwords. Have a look at http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6eB.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6nB.htm. Of course you need Java 6. If that is not enough, let me know, there are more out there for Java ;-)

Based on the amount of email addreses OS/2 VOICE has collected via Paypal for donations I would say maybe between 5 and 10% of the OS/2 community has donated. The rest download free of charge....

I don't do Paypal, paid direct, so be careful with your assumptions.

And I do less hours computer time in my own space due to the fact that meetings  are now all done with screen instead of face to face in a meeting room. It seems that I have a limit on screen time.

Setup & Installation / Re: JRUN - Looking for Guinea pig(s)

'Here's an update...
3. harvest.cmd of Joop's site didn't look at classpath .jar files to decide the name of object id... that pasted section created by harvest.cmd in the JRun.cmd script has been updated.
???? Where did you find "harvest" on my site? All Java programs on my site are tested with the given cmd file, the only thing I do is making the drive and directory more standard, but that doesn't influence the working. So everyone who want to make use of the cmd file only have to re edit the drive and path names. That's clearly lined out, that is, no one complained yet ;-)

I don't understand this with one program for launching java programs. One thing I know is that we have Java 6, but on some points it is not Java 6, different reactions, it does not work or we need a different memory specification. Lots of programs are very simple in running, but others are very hard and need sometimes lots of settings and options before it will do something. So I opt for using a command file, you can put in what you want and what will work for you. If you know how to start, what options and so on, see my website http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e.htm. There are over 150 programs with where to get it and how to run.

Article Discussions / Re: OS/2 - ArcaOS 64Bits Kernel Discussion
« on: December 10, 2020, 10:17:08 pm »
As far as I know is that the memory is a little less than 4Gb. But this is for the whole OS, no matter if you have 1 kernel or 4 or 8 or... What could be done is each kernel its own little less than 4GB. So with a 4 kernel system you could install 16Gb memory. And 64-bit is a hoax. I have a W10 64-bit from work, everything is bigger including what you make with the applications, but no improvement on the 32-bit applications in my OS/2 system. We complain sometimes about this and that, with Windows 10 its worse. Each day I encounter problems with USB. The Wacom is sometimes working and sometimes not. Now this can easy be fixed, but its not okay. Office from Microsoft is a mess, really, no application does have the same file interface, parts are deaf for the cloud, some programs are even worse then found in the shareware corner. And you don't want to know what the company has to pay for this package.

No, that's not the whole story with JPEG. You can save JPEG almost without artifacts. PMView has a very nice feature when JPEG is selected. Choose Save as and then the button Options. Set quality at 100 and smoothing at 0. Check the box save exif information. Now your image is saved as the original. If you need an image for an internetpage then you change quality to 80 and smoothing to 2...5. Always sharpen the image with mild or moderate. Always use steps and never go in one time to the end result with everything you do with a picture. In this case the lossy algorithm is working in favour.
With the combination of Embellish and PMView you can do about everything other (big?) programs can do, sometimes even with better results. Remind, you can always sharpen an image but not blur it. So if you take a picture with your camera always not on end sharpness. In post you can always sharpen it, but not unsharpen (blur) it without severe consequences.

I have separate disks(partitions) for 8:3, just make a small partition and format it with 8:3. Be aware that lots of programs can't handle disks in the right way if on the disk is something not 8:3. Programs can hang or do other strange things. This is not a problem for OS/2 (eCS and probably ArcaOS). Also lots of Windows 3.x programs can't handle large volumes.

Its far better for Oracle that they do not win, if they win they will face millions of lawsuits for there own code, a database is a database, why change code every version? In other words, they go down hard. Furthermore they can't force writing code in a certain way, Microsoft did tried that before and lost. Its against progression and inventing new code without a rewrite of a whole OS. If it will go on, then we can setup a lawsuit to all those firms which stopped with goods which needs a driver, an os etc. Say Psion as an example. Or Wacom for drivers not up to W10 and the tablet is still working. And there are a lot more examples. But that is my view and opinion.

General Discussion / Re: Search machines, what to use?
« on: September 13, 2020, 09:47:57 pm »
Thanks @Mathias, I have updated my links and kicked out Google and replaced it with DuckDuckGo. Also tried it with search strings. It does find a lot, but not my pages  :-\ and you don't have to cut through dozen advertisements or so. Also tried a search of which I know that there are only 5 to 10 pages which matches the search string. I got three in DDG and not the 500.000+ like with Google. Also tried the translators from Google and Microsoft, both still go direct to translate and don't give the page with cookies, for as long as it stays this way.

General Discussion / Search machines, what to use?
« on: September 13, 2020, 04:21:04 pm »
In the past weeks Google has changed some things, if this is policy I don't know. But I get sick in setting up cookies each time I visit Google. Today you get a screen with that you have to choose for following, cookies and alike. Not to mention that advertisements cookies are that numerous that about every one  don't even think to set them all on off. So you agree in the end because you get sick of it. For the last years Google search results are just bull, first advertisements, then the same but with only some search words in total different content, then things which look a like and may be after hundreds of pages with bullshit you can see some things which corresponds to the actual search. So I was not that happy last years, but this does closes for me the door. Internet should be free, but it isn't.

But, now what? I ended with DuckDuckGO and Qwant. Are there other search machines which are privacy friendly?

I don't know what influence this will have on testing and translating Java programs, not to mention setting up my space in English (translation Dutch to English) or in Dutch (translation English to Dutch). Currently I'm busy with something in Spanish, a language I don't speak or read. Have to see. Did test Google translation today. It still present itself as usual, no cooky shit yet. I also picked up Bing Microsoft translator. But both are evil in terms of privacy when it comes to search engine.

Multimedia / Re: Updated Uniaud32 build

You have to screen your config.sys on the position of this line, it must be one of the last in the device block. Everything uniaud needs has to be started before the line with uniaud.

I have added a new game to my Java corner. If you can call it a game is up to you. The program is called jTarot and it uses special cards.  jTarot is a tarot personal advisor. jTarot will do a "reading" for you when you need advice. You can read more on my page in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e173.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n173.htm.

There is a picture too;


Have fun and stay healthy!
