Simon,

This is a general question - I have no idea if they could co-exist

Probably they could as you would use the cursor keys still to operate 
the ICE desktop - the QPC / QPTR mouse does not work with ICE

[Ql-Users] Fwd: ProWesS Files

2018-12-07 Thread Rich Mellor via Ql-Users
I attach an email correspondence I had with Joachim van der Auwera back 
in 2013 about the status of the other ProWess programs.


You will see that he stated that they were all made open source so any 
missing programs from the suite can be sent to Dilwyn for uploading to 
his website!



Phew

Hi Joachim,

The released versions of software I seem to be missing is:

fsearch
PWFile
PWList
PWSBasic

I know according to the site, there is supposedly stuff on
ftp://triathlon98.com/pub/ProWesS (anonymous login), but I can't access it!

I is all (and has been) open source (GPL IIRC) for a long time.
Unfortunately though, I am unsure whether I still have sources (other 
than what is on the site) in a recoverable way. It seems the backup 
disks I have are next to useless because my IOmega ZIP drive no longer 
functions. ZIP disks have been sent to Urs König who is trying to 
recover them.


Kind regards,
Joachim

Hi Joachim,

I hope you are keeping well.

i know that ProWesS was released into the public domain some time 
ago, but it is not clear what the position is regarding your other 
software:


DataDesign
LineDesign
PWFile
PFList
fsearch
fontutils

Whilst the sources are provided for things such as the DataDesign 
BASIC engine, the actual compiled version is not available on your site.


I was wondering if all of these are now public domain, or whether you 
wish to retain them as commercial programs?


Certainly it would make sense to offer the download of the BASIC 
engine for DataDesign


Kind Regards

Hi,

Yes, their website states:
"
ProWesS is now available for free using the GPL, you can download it 
(distribution, documentations, examples, source) "


That's right but  I think this is  only true for ProwesS itself not 
for PWfile, Fsearch,Fontutils,DATAdesign, PFlist. Have a look 
http://www.progs.be/Information/prices.html. Only  ProWesS itself. is 
free and can be downloaded  .The others have a price tag ( still in 
Belgian Francs) and are not downloadable.


I hope I'm wrong here.


We seem to only be missing PWfile and Fsearch from Dilwyn's site.

I have emailed Davide Santachiara - he now runs www.sinclairql.it

[Ql-Users] GDPR and 25th May

2018-05-04 Thread Rich Mellor via Ql-Users

Hi all,

With the new GDPR legislation coming in on 25th May - how will the 
mailing list cope with this?


We seem to need to:

a) Keep a record of any emails sent asking to join the list

b) Keep a record of any emails sent to get removed from the list

c) Ensure there is simple to understand information on how to join the 
list / be removed; and who has access to the emails on the list


d) More problematic is the right to be forgotten - as surely all emails 
included in the thread history etc would need to be removed or at least 
anonymised in that case



Can the mailing list admin already cope with this?

Dear all,

  


I'm so shocked and in deep sadness to hear that Rick passed away. I was in

I last met Rick last October in Cambridge around the Spectrum35 celebration.


  


He was such a great guy, very smart, with a great sense of humor and so
gifted. He created so many amazing an beautiful  things.

  


In autumn 2014 he was on vacation with his mother at the beautiful Lake

Betreff: The wonderful Rick

  


Dearest Friends

  


With the hugest hole in my heart and a sadness I can't being to understand,
the wonderful person known to many as Rick the Viking, opened his wings and
started on another journey on Tuesday 24 April. And sadly I am not yet able
to join him, despite wanting so much to be with him.

  


I know that this will come as a shock to many as we had not been open about
his health issues, preferring rather to deal with them in private, even from
both of own families until fairly recently. Rick was diagnosed with cancer
in 2015 and despite successful treatment in 2016, he became unwell again in
early January 2017. I am sure some of you may have guessed something was not
quite right, and to those of you that perhaps did not understand why we
became less and less social during 2017, I hope now you can understand that
this was in no way a reflection of our friendship with you but rather
circumstances dictating what he was or was not able to do.

  


We have been at a specialist clinic in America - Texas to be precise - since
the end of March undergoing complimentary treatment as a last attempt at
hoping to heal him when he passed away quickly, without warning having
collapsed in the apartment we were rented here. He was in no pain and
surround by huge love from the amazing people that have become firm friends
here - that Texan southern hospitality truly was  - and continues to be  -
laid at our door.  Rick will be cremated here in Texas and I will travel
home with his ashes once the paperwork is sorted probably at the end of next
week.

  


And, rather than a traditional funeral (which you know is really not his
style) his much loved daughters that he was so proud of - Grace and Daisy -
and his mother Ursula and I will be planning for a celebration of his life
where we can all get together and remember him with love, laughs, smiles,
anecdotes and a few beverages. I will of course let you know details once we
have finalised plans.

  


Please also do pass on this email to any that you feel may wish to know;
Rick had many, many friends across the broad spectrum of his work and
interests and I have tried to find as many emails as I can from his computer
but am sure I have left some out.

  


And can I ask that - for the time being - please don't call as I simply
can't face talking right now, but I would dearly love to receive your
messages, emoticons and any photos or memories you wish to send of the
person who was - simply - the wonderful Rick, love of my life.

  


And please take 5 minutes , raise a glass or 10 , and think about the
beautiful Rick, the one and only Viking and all the good times we have all
had with him. As they always say - but I do believe - he is watching over us
and sends love to you all and is only sorry that he was not able to see you
all before he left.

Tested on a bare QPC2v404, this could happen if channel #1 is closed.
The WINDOW command does then not produce an error on the default

On QPC2 v4.04 here I didn't have to close anything - I just entered the

As stated, this does not happen in v4.05 so there must be something

Confirmed - it affected v4.04 but is fixed in v4.05 :)

I also found some of the character combinations were not working in 
v4.04 (eg CTRL SHIFT - did not produce a down arrow).
That also now works in v4.05 but CTRL \ does not produce the left arrow 
still.

He passed away peacefully last night (28th March) at 23:45 of cancer, according

Hi,

Does any one know the commercial status of the DP Collection.

The rights to the various programs in the DP Collection reverted to the 
software authors when Digital Precision ceased trading.


Some have released their programs into the public domain (or as
