Net: Let's gather solutions based on OS/2

2005-12-02

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eComStation News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: "Eugene Gorbunoff"


Whatsnew:
* eComStation on injection moulding machines
URL: http://en.ecomstation.ru/showarticle.php?id=137

* eComStation breathes new life into Access Community Radio
URL: http://en.ecomstation.ru/showarticle.php?id=136


OS/2 (eComStation) is alive while people are using and improving the
system. The developers of solutions ensure long life for our operating
system because computers with OS/2 make money for their customers year by
year. The developers bring new industrial technologies to OS/2, feed
support service, fill OS/2 with unique features to keep the solutions
competitive.

Examples of solutions based on OS/2: ATM, sound processing (speech,
digital restoration of sound), training devices (astronauts, oilmen),
technical appliances (measuring, medical), virtual machines (mainframes,
SVISTA), CMMS, restaurants, etc.

Why should you write the story today?
* You should do this to protect your investments made into OS/2 platform.

* OS/2 users are located in different countries and cities. They will
read the story because of OS/2 word :) And spread the information about
your company and products among own colleagues.
* The developer of the operating system will get information about your
requirements and improve OS to satisfy them.
* Your story gives stimulus to thousands of users, developers and
companies.
* It's easy. Solution story is based on usual product flyer.

Where to collect solutions? www.ecomstation.ru site is hosting Solutions
list since 2002. Now it contains texts on russian language only but you
can publish german, dutch, english texts there.

How to write Solutions story? Take the flyer of your product, add
Introduction, add one-two paragraphs about advantages of OS/2 usage, add
2 advertisement photos/screenshots, 2 screenshots of back-end demonstating
usage of OS/2. Send the story to e-mail: support (at) ecomstation.ru

Welcome to homepage of solutions! (http://ecomstation.ru/solutions)

SW: XSane-0.98b for OS/2 available

2005-12-04

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eComStation News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: fbakanDESPAM@DESPAMgmx.net

XSane is a powerful frontend to access scanners which are supported by an
OS/2-Version of SANE.

This new version contains a small bugfix and some docs I forgot to include
in 0.98a.

It works here
- standalone
- as gimp-plugin for GIMP2 (It won't work with gimp122, don't bother...)
- with XFree4.5.0 or HOB-X11

It should work with the new SANE-versions from Paul and USB-scanners, but
I couldn't try because I don't have a USB-scanner.

SW: Apache2 2.0.55 libc edition released

2005-12-05

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eComStation News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley


Now available from http://smedley.info/os2ports.html (or will be once the
upload completes)

This is an initial build of Apache2 2.0.55 for OS/2, built with Innotek
GCC 3.3.5 GA version.

It requires the libc06.dll runtime that is available from
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.0-ga2.zip

This version supports dynamically loaded modules. Note however that
modules will need to be rebuilt with Innotek GCC.

Please send request for additional modules to me at
paulDESPAM@DESPAMsmedley.info

All standard modules (including ssl) are included except for deflate which
was giving me grief so is currently not included.

A php module is not yet available, however PHP is trivial to setup as a
cgi helper until it is available.

Please send feedback to paulDESPAM@DESPAMsmedley.info.

Cheers,

Misc: Bounty for Maul XHTML import handler

2005-12-07

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eComStation News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: "Christian Hennecke"


An XHTML import handler for the Maul Desktop Publisher has been added to
the new OS/2 World.com bounty system.

Maul Desktop Publisher offers a plug-in interface for so-called handlers.
These handlers can also be used to implement filters to transparently
import from and export to other file formats. The XHTML import handler
would need to be able to read a standard XHTML file and convert tags like
headers, paragraphs, bold, etc. to the native Maul file format. Moreover,
it would need to offer a possibility to convert CSS classes included in
the XHTML file by applying Maul stylesheets to the marked text.

The current bounty is USD 100. It is sponsored by point blank edv-beratung
und service and EDV-Beratung Thomas Klein, two German IT consulting and
service companies.

For more information, see http://www.os2world.com/bounties/.

VOICE Newsletter: Assistant Editor needed for Tips page

2005-12-07

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eComStation News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: "Christian Hennecke"



Dear readers,

Our Tips Editor WD Loughman has informed me that due to changes of
vocational and personal nature, he won't be able to spend as much time as
usual on compiling the Newsletter's Tips page any more.

As a result, we are searching for a person who is willing to assist him in
his work.

The requirements for the position are as follows:

- Persistence: You need to be able to commit yourself to the job for a
longer period. There is no use in us breaking in someone who's going to
leave again two months later.

- Reliability: We have to be able to rely on you getting your work done,
and done correctly, before certain deadlines. There always is the
possibility of things getting in the way - in that case, we need to be
sure that you tell us about it in time.

- Ability to work in a team

- Grammar/spelling knowledge: As many tips do not come from native
speakers, proof-reading and editing is required.

- Information resources: You should be subscribed to at least a few of
OS/2-related mailing lists or news groups, and scan these for interesting
information on a regular basis.

The following is desirable but not required:

- XHTML/CSS skills: Knowledge of which tags there are and what a CSS class
is would be helpful.

Your job will consists of:

- Scanning information resources for potential tips.

- Assembling tips that come from above resources or have been submitted
directly to VOICE. This includes addition of introductory lines.

- Proof-reading including corrections of awkward phrasing as well as bad
grammar and spelling.

- Formatting the tips page according to our author guidelines.

- Possibly giving advise to the translation team, e.g., regarding idioms
and proverbs.

If you are interested, please contact us at
editorDESPAM@DESPAMos2voice.org.
