Re: anyone recommend a good partiton mirror/sync program
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi guys,

Just a word of caution.... Beware if the partition you are
trying to copy/mirror/sync has any links in it. Example: SYS:

I've come to find Denil's Backup program might or might not
correctly replicate links, depending on how they were originally
created (you can end up with links back to the original (gone?)
partition).

Looking at the readme, it looks like Chris' FolderSync2
explicitly ignores links (just doesn't create the linked
file?? just makes another file??).

I didn't see any mention of how links were handled in the docs
on BackUpCopy.

Good luck,

Re: Arexx question - putting the output of a DOS command into a variable
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hey Davyw,

Ever the fan of doing things the longhand way, here's a chunk
of code I've used often. You can paste this in a text file and
test it in the CLI.

---
/* Ask User Choice & Print Out
*/
TitleBarTxt = 'Test Requester'
BodyTxt = 'Pick something!'
ButtonsTxt = '"Yes" "Umm" "No"'
ReqType = 'INFO'
cline = 'c:requestchoice "' || (TitleBarTxt) || '" "' || BodyTxt || '" ' || (ButtonsTxt) || ' TYPE ' || (ReqType) || ' TO T:response.txt'
address command cline
MyReturnCode = RC
if exists('T:response.txt') then
if open(ReqF,'T:response.txt','r') then do
pick = strip(readln(ReqF),'B','"')
bs = close(ReqF)
address command 'c:delete T:response.txt'
say 'response >' pick '<'
end
else
say 'Couldn''t open Requester output file'
---

[meh -- tabs were stripped -- imagine they're there ]

Of course this can be adapted to RequestString or RequestFile.
The RC/ReturnCode lets you see if the user cancelled the
requester in those cases, IIRC.

Good luck,

Re: What cases for the new ACube 460
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


@kas1e

Cool looking case picture (on the site).

Already having three "bog box" towered Amigas (XE, X1K & X5K),
my goal for the SAM(s) has always been to make them as small as
absolutely possible.

With this case & the 440 and a portable monitor, it's been a
great travel machine. It would just be nice to have the 460's
horsepower in the package... ;D

Thanks,

@sailor @kas1e @rob

yeah, I expected if I was to try to reuse my old slim case,
I'd have to stick a 2 card 90-degree riser in the first slot
and skip using any others. Hopefully that lines up with the
backplane slots in the case.

I just don't know that risers work or not (like in the tabor).

Thanks,

What cases for the new ACube 460
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi All,

With ACube's progress on the 460 production restart, I've been wondering
what are the smallest cases that board would fit in. To some extent
this is a topic/questions for ACube. ;)

On their webpage they say the board is 21.6cm x 17cm ("Flex ATX"):

https://www.acube-systems.biz/index.php?page=hardware&pid=756

...and yet it sounds like it is smaller than what wiki says an ATX-Flex
board is (22.9cm x 19.1cm).

Notably, it sounds like it's only as deep at the SAM440ep Mini-ITX
boards (17cm x 17cm).

That makes me wonder if the new SAM board could fit in case the 440
fits, assuming there's room for the increased width?

My ideal goal would be to find if that board could fit in a wide case
I've already got my 440 in, but it would also require the 460 works
with a 90 degree 2-card riser (in the first slot):

https://apextechusa.com/products.asp?pID=158

Anyone have experience with slot riser cards in SAM 460's? Any
ideas whether my little scheme would work? It would be nice to upgrade
my 440 to its bigger brother! ;D

Otherwise, what sorts of cases are you thinking about for your new 460's?
Anything really small?

Thanks,

PJS

@number6

Thanks for coming and posting in Amigans.

We were missing your pot stirring, troll baiting, hypocritical
'your secrecy has served you so well' BS.

But your fanning the flames of conspiracy theories for the sake
of your giddy amusement is tireseome, discouraging and utterly
unproductive.

Maybe it's just too much?

Maybe you should go back to peddling your wares on AW?

Re: Sam460LE 1.10 Ghz Pre-Order!

Not too shy to talk


Hey guys,

I'm wondering about the form factor on this board...

This is really a question for ACube: Will this microATX
board fit in the Psile case the original SAM's shipped
in?

My Psile (from my 440) now has a retarded A1222 in it.
Seems like it might be a lot better putting in something
proven & functional than the crippled Tabor.

hmmm...

@Valiant

Hey Valiant,

FWIW, these settings have been working great in my ADRipper
(v1.13) for automatically downloading/populating CD info
these days:

protocol = CDDBP
server/port = gnudb.gnudb.org / 8880
query path = /~cddb/cddb.cgi
submit path = /~cddb/submit.cgi

Granted I don't know that submission ever works.

Good luck,

Re: Odyssey has become unstable!
Not too shy to talk

@Gregor

I've long found that it's best to run oddity from a clean
install. It seems to collect a lot of debris each time
it runs.

To that end, I usually use a script that copy it to a
directory on the ram disk, run it there and then clean out
the detritus after it quits.

Good luck,

Re: Qt 6 progress

Not too shy to talk


Well, that was... umm... something.

Alfkil, from what little I saw, your work on Qt6 looked FANTASTIC!
Very impressive.

Thank you very much for all your efforts! You're making it look easy!

...as for the stream. Well, to put it mildly. It was disappointing.
It really demonstrated how the stellar the efforts of tekmage at
Amiwest are. He makes it just work!

The stream started out playing with video/sound. But then it was
restarted as "restricted content". That killed playing it on the
Amiga. Meh.

The chat was on goggles? Geez. Why not do it on an IRC channel?
It literally takes TWO WORDS to set up, can be joined on any machine
and doesn't involve a peecee or bending over for goggles.

Alfkil, I hope you consider doing an Amiga friendly stream & chat next
time.

Thanks,

PJS

@328gts

Why would you give Matty one third of the $$$ that alfkil
deserves for his hard work on Qt6 ???

@alfkil

Alfkil, please avoid anything to do with Matty. I'm glad
to contribute for further development, just don't feed the
weasel.

It would be even better if I could use an Amiga browser to
make the contribution! ;D

Keep up the great work!

I can't help with the code, but I really appreciate your
efforts on this project and am hopeful for its success.

OTOH, I can help otherwise... But Oddity no longer works
in PayPal. :(

I contributed for your work on Qt6 (and an Amiga browser)
with droid. :/

Please keep up the great work! The TextEdit app was
really impressive.

Re: Web browser in 2021?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi all,

I think we have bear in mind, Timberwolf were just progress builds...
Beta releases.

I found that it could be made to run most reliably by making it start from
scratch every time. Somehow it seemed to collect bad ju ju as it ran. To
that end, I added these line to the beginning of its "Timberworlf" startup
script:

-------------------
if exists CurrentUserProfile NOREQ
delete CurrentUserProfile/#? all force
endif
-------------------

But in the end, TW just stopped working on most sites. I suspect that's
likely due to its decades old SSL code.

For as great an HTML 4 browser as IBrowse is, the lack of a more modern
browser is dire threat to the modern Amiga world.

At least those with the money are now working on new clocks, docks
and replacement C: commands. Brilliant!

Thanks,

PJS
