The President's Message


December 2001

by Tony Butka

After our multiple install session, I was afraid that our November topics would not live up to the same high standard. Well, wrong again. Every time Jerry Rash does a presentation, the whole group becomes revitalized and interested in doing multimedia -- all those questions about sound cards and drivers suddenly start coming up again (including yours truly). It was also very neat to see our old favorite games running under OS/2 in emulation mode.

Speaking of emulations, Kim Cheung from Serenity Systems gave us a neat peek at running entire operating systems as emulations with the next generation of "Virtual PC's". All very heady stuff for our "dead" os.

Shifting gears, you can help with an issue that the Board is currently wrestling with. We are looking for a few good ideas for meeting topics, speakers, and such. Please contact any of us through our e-mail addresses at scoug.com -- for example, mine is tony@scoug.com.

A couple ideas that come to mind from my own perspective are:

  1. Exactly how do you take your cheapie Fry's special CD Burner and get it to work under OS/2 using available freeware? In this case the freeware is CdRecord/2 and a front end like Audio CD Creator -- software along the lines of SANE and XSane for OS/2, or GhostScript and GhostView. Of course for the rest of you there is RSJ CDWriter, but that stuff is so good and easy it takes the pain out of computing, and besides, it costs money!
  2. For those who bought one of the new OS/2 versions like WSeB (yeah, right!), or the Convenience Pak from IBM, or eCS but haven't yet installed it (a number of members admitted this in the last few months and I know who you are), how about a nice, slow operating system install done using the big projector screen and a list of well known 'gotchas' to avoid when using LVM and the new Boot Manager?
Or what about your idea! Hopefully these examples will trigger some ideas that you can share with us to make the presentations interesting. Remember, its your club, and it is taking the entire Board to replace Mark. Of course, if some brave soul would like to volunteer to be program chair, that would be really cool too!

'till next time. If you have questions, suggestions, or want to contribute an article, just write me: tony@scoug.com.
