The President's Message

September 2002

by Tony Butka

At our recent Board meeting, the hot topic was which version of OS/2 our members actually use:

  • Warp 3/Warp 3 Connect
  • Warp 4 (and which FixPak level)
  • Software Choice (MCP)
  • eCS
  • Warp Server
  • Warp Server for eBusiness

We'll be doing a survey at this month's meeting (and on the web site), but feel free to e-mail me before the meeting (especially if you're not going to attend the meeting). You know the address -- Tony@SCOUG.com. The answers are very important to the future direction of your club. They tell us the kinds of software, upgrades, and patches that you, the members, really need or want.

As most of you know, the latest versions of USB support, TCP/IP 4.3+, and Java 1.31 are only available through eCS or a Convenience Pak subscription. If most of you already have this software, then we won't waste a lot of time figuring out how to get the software to you. If a majority don't have the updates, we will devote time and energy to seeing what we can do.

When you respond, if you're running Warp 3 or 4, let us know which FixPak level you are using. Again the answers will help us help you.

Shifting gears, September is the 9th anniversary of the Southern California OS/2 User Group, and you really should attend the membership meeting. For openers, we're pulling out the stops and giving away pizza and soda for all! Did I say it's free? It's free. And even more, fans, we will be giving away free SCOUG CD's with all the latest software goodies on them!! (I sort of feel like one of those Ginsu knife sales guys, but what the heck...)

And finally, we will be doing a joint presentation about the latest greatest web browsers -- Netscape 4.61 with all the goodies, Mozilla (now at version 1+), Opera 5, and Lynx the text mode web browser.

See you there, 9:15 AM on Saturday, September 21 upstairs at Regal Lanes in Orange.

Questions, comments, ideas for any presentations, contact me at tony@scoug.com.
