SW: Tame v1.04b

2006-09-02
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

I've just uploaded a new build of Sane/Tame to http://smedley.info/os2ports

This updates Sane to the latest cvs source from the 2nd of September, and
also fixes a major bug that prevented the Epson Perfection 3490 (and
presumably the similar 2480/2580/3590) scanners from working.

All feedback welcome.

Cheers,

Paul.

Event: Warpstock X hotel reservations

2006-09-03
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Andy Willis

Warpstock 2006 is rapidly approaching.

17 days to reserve your hotel accommodation.

We have a cutoff date coming up soon.

The hotel has agreed to hold our room block until September 20th, 2006 at
the special conference rate of $115 CAD (Canadian dollars).

After that date, any unbooked rooms will be released for general sale.

All requests received after this date will be handled on a space and rate
availability basis.

This could leave you paying a much higher rate for the same room.

Warpstock needs to meet a certain number of room nights or we will be
forced to pay a penalty.

By booking your room through Warpstock, you help keep the costs of
Warpstock manageable.

General Warpstock location information:
http://www.warpstock.org/staticpages/index.php?page=ws2006_location

"zgv is a picture viewer with a thumbnail-based file selector, for the
Linux and FreeBSD console (and now works under OS/2-eCS) (it uses svgalib).
It's pretty featureful, and is probably the best svgalib-based viewer. (It
can also be built to use SDL if you prefer.) Lots of people have told me
they like it, where "lots" = "oh, it must be at least two or three", and
you can't ask for a more ringing endorsement than that. Well, you could,
but I'm not sure you'd get it. :-) "
