Hi, I got a message today: Someone of the ARMada installed a new french mailing list. It was exactly in the time I was on the edge / computer to do exactly the same.
It was not the first time that something like this happened. In the morning of the 27th February 2009 I did a speech about the power of tildes.

Are there any further thoughts as to why Hermes is not, after repeated attempts over weeks, removing email to a particular ISP (@rambler.ru) from my Mpro 6.01 outgoing queue? OE6 seems to be able to cope with this server address.

It looks like the last release was in 1999.
I haven't tried running it yet, but it looks like a good proof of concept of putting a PMT layer on top of RISC OS, and allowing CMT apps to run alongside it, to gradually move to a more PMT-compatible system without having to rearchitect the entire OS in one go. Also, the PMT layer could have support for multiprocessing, to take advantage of multi-core CPUs (or a Hydra with five StrongARMs stuffed in it, but that'd be bus starved anyway.) Are .... read more

Despite programming it quite extensively when I were a lad (and it was uphill both ways to/from school and we ate coal etc) I've forgotten something: I'm sure it was possible to list a programme and either pause the listing with the SHIFT key, or have it pause at the end of each page and SHIFT would display the next page.
Can anyone remind me about this? Many thanks.

I would like to use the TextArea gadget of the toolbox and insert a default text that has more than one line. However, the text can only be entered in a single line writeable field. Is it possible to place a control character there that leeds to a new line? Which control character is it? Sorry, I searched for it also in this group but could not find it.
Thanks, Michael -- Please replace nospam by m.gerbracht when replying by e-mail

Hello, For many years I didn't really understand the difference between the various colour formats used in 256 colour screen modes. (e.g. why can't the value returned by ColourTrans_ReturnGCOL be used with BASIC's GCOL command?) Then, I found a bug in ColourTrans related to 256 colour modes with a fully-definable palette, had an argument with Gerph about it, and during this period wrote several BASIC programs to test GCOLs and took a lot of notes.
Now, I present an online converter w.... read more

I don't know just now whether I will be able to post this, or be able to see any replies, so if anyone has helpful suggestions, perhaps they could kindly copy a direct mail copy to me? This is largely copied from a post on the Archive-on-line mailing list yesterday: [quote] I've had occasions when NewsHound times out when trying to fetch from the Orpheus server, but this usually rights itself after a few minutes.
Today I was able to connect first thing, but for the rest of the morning.... read more

Hope this is an appropriate Group - courteous redirectuon willingly accepted! Investigating NewsHound's configuration I was pleased to find a box in the Choices-Misc window to Get list of newsgroups on next fetch. I've not had a current list of active groups for years so I ticked the box and the download window showed the list arriving- but I'm darned if I can find where it's gone. Any ideas? I use NewsHound as part of Netfetch in association with Pluto.

Hi.
This is probably a longshot, but worth a try anyway. Superior Software now called Superior Interactive are interested in getting in touch with the authors of the game Spellbinder - Dan & Etan Shirron, as they may consider doing a revamped PC version in the future but would like to get in touch with the games authors before doing anything.
Does anyone know of their whereabouts ? Many thanks cheers Matthew -- Message sent from an IYONIX www.iyonix.com Using RISC OS 5 : RISC OS Open Ltd .... read more

I'm using Sunfish to access NFS shares on my Debian server. One such share is used as a backup of my Iyonix.
When backing up using DirSync I've noticed that some of my RISC OS files have very strange date stamps: 30 Dec 1948, 24 Dec 2193 etc. Why is this? I can cirumvent this by using Diff to check the file contents or (obviously) restamping the files on the RISC OS side. But it is puzzling.
What's also puzzling me, and somewhat more annoying for backups, is that although my files ar.... read more
