SCOUG's October 2002 Meeting:
Drivers and Other Desktop Essentials
What's Freely Available and What's Not

What do you get when you buy Software Choice or eCS? What can you get freely elsewhere? Come to the meeting and find out!

OS/2 Help Desk - Nov 3rd at Chapman University in Orange

Once a month you have a chance to take your problems to SCOUG's OS/2 Help Desk. It's held the first Sunday of the month at Chapman University in room 203 of the Hashinger Hall Science Building. SCOUG volunteers are there to help you work through your hardware and software problems.

Networking SIG

The Networking SIG normally meets at the same time and place as the live OS/2 Help Desk, but it's on hiatus for a few months.

Open Source Applications - What Would You Like To See?

Is there an open source product you'd like to know more about? Better yet, is there one you'd be willing to briefly explain to your fellow SCOUG members? SCOUG is planning a meeting devoted to open source applications, and your input will help us settle on what's to be covered.

The September Meeting

September was our 9th anniversary. We celebrated with browsers, pizza, and entertainment.

Spreading the Appreciation Around

Rollin White was honored for his contributions to SCOUG at the group's 9th anniversary meeting in Sept. 2002. As is so typical for him, he wants to share the acclaim with others.

The SCOUG Time Line: 1993 - 2002

It's fun to look back at all we've done, and wow - what an impressive list!

SCOUG's Tribute to Rollin White

Rollin White undoubtedly has had the most impact on SCOUG of any individual.

Lynx on OS/2: Straight Answers and Keen Tricks - Part 1

Lynx is often Dallas's web browser of choice, in part because it is resource stingy. This might not be a glamorous reason, but it makes the most of resources available whether it is a slow ISP connection, underpowered CPU, poor monitor or whatever. Along with this, Lynx is extremely configurable, having many often surprising capabilities. He'll go into some of these capabilities in this series of articles, and show you some keen tricks for OS/2 users with Lynx using REXX. Part 1 gets you started.

DOWNLOAD!

This month we have the release of Mozilla 1.2 alpha (see Mr. Know-It-All), an update to WarpVision, and Apache. DFSee has added some LVM and JFS support. You'll find out about all the newest downloadable drivers like a Universal Audio Driver from IBM and a number of releases from Daniela Engert. On the application front, Harry Chris Motin has a new version of BA2KCMD, a REXX interface to Back Again/2000's CLBACK.EXE.

Ink

Last month Tony introduced us to his favorite new printer, the Epson C-80. Besides being inexpensive and having OS/2 drivers, he likes that it uses plain paper for color printing. He also likes that it uses four separate ink cartridges rather than one or two. Delivering on his promise for more information, he's done some comparison printing, testing different settings, different papers, and even different operating systems. You'll certainly want to read about his results.

The President's Message

Tony grouses about the modem problems we had at last month's meeting, not being able to get a dial-up Internet connection to work... which puts him in mind of other hardware problems he's been fighting (and eventually winning) on a friend's Mac... which leads him back to the value of user groups in general and SCOUG in particular... and finally how, all things considered, OS/2 is still the best operating system choice.

Dear Mr. Know-It-All

Mozilla is the Open Source version of Netscape, and there are several versions available to OS/2 users. Mr. Know-It-All tells you what they are, when they were released, and where you can find them. He advocates the most advanced version, Mozilla 1.2a which is still in the testing phase. But for those less adventurous than he, run version 1.0 at the latest build level (currently 1.0.2).
