btiffin: Looks like I updated Wine from the winehq site late November, so I've got a pretty recent version.
It works with wine 0.9.46
Has rebol.net been slashdotted? I can't even get to the blogs, let alone the alpha download ...
works fine here
Windows services library release: please report any bug or issue here : http://www.softinnov.org:8000/curecode/project.rsp?id=8
I guess that, at least, Graham and BrianH would use/test it ;-)
It covers around 95% of win32 services API, if you really need a feature that's missing, just ask me privately, I will consider your request et maybe add it in a future version.
et = and
Go Doc Go!
Cool Doc. Does the new NT Services utility also allow someone to established an external application as a service? For example can I use REBOL's call function to run winword.exe?
From within a service you can call any other application using 'call, but remember that in order to survive to session log off, the called application should run without opening any window in user's desktop (including invisible windows too). So if the application hasn't been designed specifically for that, it will be killed when you log off, defeating the purpose of runnning it as a service. Maybe there are workarounds, but I didn't find any yet...
Thanks Doc. thanks for that information Doc.
John; Tried to post your news at 6502.org but I can't register an account. I'll keep trying.
TomBon, yes we plan to test a lot on all kinds of filesystems. One of the good points with this DB is, that it will take advantage of different filesystems right away (in theory). :)
thx for info geomol. sounds promising. will look out for your first release...
Geomol; Your work may be the only items that show up in the February calendar. Go John Go!
Geomol, that seems very interesting.
Thanks! I'm going thru the code for the relative file layer these days. Some of it has to be made more simple, I found. For now I check these changes with Martin before release.
Patrick: yes, thanks! :-) I think, I'll let the misspelling stay there in that doc, as it was an educational work now a bit dated.
Peter Wood. I look forward to purchasing the book.
Brock: I hope that it won't take too long to finish translating the book. I have learnt quite a lot whilst translating it., though that isn't necessarly saying a lot.
Peter, how many chapters are in the book?
Nice, Oldes! Thanks. Bye the way, what is the url for the website of your travels with all the widescreen photos? I want to look again.
Louis: There are seven chapters in Olivier's book. The first four have been translated, we are working on the fifth chapter at the moment.
do you mean this one? http://box.lebeda.ws/~hmm/fotky/2007-rusko/
Do you have more, Oldes?
yes... but not everything online
Anything you put online I would like to see. Your websites all use flash, I that right?
I that right? = Is that right?
Peter/Oldes: I only saw chapters 1/2/and 4.Is 3 being ready for Lulu.com ? I bought the 3 last night
Oldes, does it do a Clean as well on the source?
Alan: Chapter 3 is almost ready. I'm just correcting a bug with one of the example scripts that I introduced when I translated the 'words. I've learnt one advantage of programming in French (or any non-English languauge); you are far less likely to accidentally redefine a "system" word.
LOL with the 10'000 post! And then a newcomer! Bah! Some people are just so lucky! ;-)
what's so different between 10'000 and 999 or 666 ?? Does anyone believe in numerology??
I'm waiting for the 10'240 th post.
9001 and 9334. No.
Pity .. I need some advice on what lotto numbers to purchase.
Well, 8's and 9's are good. 7 is cool, 6 sucks, 5 is like kindergarten, 4 is too small, 3 is ok as its a factor of 9, 2 is a nag, 1 is where it's at and 0 is not worth its own weight in gold. So I'd go with 642.
buy them all ... can't loose
All numbers are special to someone. But, personally, I only believe in numerology on odd-numbered weekdays during prime-numbered months. Anything else would be nonsensical :-) The Announce group currently has 511 posts -- so one more makes for a nice round binary number. We could celebrate that too, once it happens.... http://www.rebol.org/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/rebol/aga-display-posts.r?post=r3wp267x512
I was tempted to announce the 512th post to Announce :)
I need some advice on what lotto numbers to purchase ... any and all above 31. You won't increase your odds of winning, just the likely payout if you do win (i.e. many people pick numbers based on birthdays) ;)
My wife asked me to pick some numbers some years ago for her lotto ... I said 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 as being as likely a set of numbers as any other. Of course she decided against it, and sure enough a good set of these particular numbers came in :(
regarding my autofile utility ... the GUI seems to stop responding after a while .. some bugs to be sorted out I guess.
