SCOUG's 8th Anniversary Celebration on Sept 15th
and Installing Iterations of OS/2:
eComStation, Warp 4, Convience Pak, and Warp Server for e-Business
What could be more fun than watching OS/2 install? Why watching it install over and over again, of course! Think we're joking? Well, think again. SCOUG members always seem to find the installation of OS/2 fascinating, so we're going to do it up royally, with an anniversary party, too!
Newsletter at a Glance
What you are currently reading is a new feature on the SCOUG web site. It mimics the printed version, but with shorter descriptions.
Last month's presentation on Odin has got Tony thinking...
No sense poking all around looking for information about some new driver you need when it's probably right here on the SCOUG web site in Gary's latest column.
If you find the plethora of Epson printers out there a tad confusing, fret no more! It's Tony to the rescue with advice on what questions to ask yourself about what you want in a new printer - and what your answers translate into, Epson printer-wise.
Dear Mr. Know-It-All
Mr. Know-It-All takes you through the process of installing eComStation (eCS) for the very first time. If you've hestitated, the wait should be over. As he says, it will be different than what you are used to, but worth the challenge.
Discoveries this time is all about a mouse that helps overcome the clutter of a somewhat disorganized physical (not computer) desktop.
Odin Today - Our August Meeting Topic
Steven's presentation materials covered a lot, from how Odin has increased in power over the last few months as the Odin developers have added new features to a step-by-step process for installing Odin and getting your Windows 95/98 programs up and running on OS/2.

SCOUG Thanks Steve Schiffman
In August we surprised Steve with some tokens of our appreciation for all his efforts over the years.
Text-Mode Web Browsers for OS/2
Text-mode web browsers may seem out-dated, but they do get past all the fluff on many web pages. Quickly, too, which is a time saver. Dallas explains the pros and cons of graphical versus text-mode browsers, and gives information about specific ones like Lynx and W3M. This look at text-mode rounds out the browser overviews that Dave Watson started last month.
Take a look!
