!Organizer updated to 2.28a

The Iconbar - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 06:29
A surprise release at Wakefield 2018 was an updated version of !Organizer (2.28a). As the number suggests, this is an incremental update to fix bugs and also add minor improvements to the ToDo Section and the interaction with RiscOSM. According to the change log there are 30 changes in the code from v2.28

As with all recent releases of !Organizer, when you run the new software for the first time, it will do some house-keeping and update your data to the latest version.

Much of the software world is moving towards more incremental and regular releases, and it is nice to get more regular releases rather than just once a year. And if you have any ideas for features you would like to see in the next release, the developers are keen for your feedback.... (I would love more draggable items as I have become hooked on Trello at work).

DiskLED is Now Open Source

Helge Klein - Sun, 06/17/2018 - 22:48

DiskLED is a tool I wrote a while ago that displays performance counter data using an animated system tray icon. It comes with a graphical configuration dialog that lets you choose from all performance counters available on the local system – you can monitor network throughput just as easily as hard disk activity or memory usage.

There still seems to be a decent userbase – after all, DiskLED works on Windows 10 just as well as it did on XP. I sometimes get requests for new features or modifications. Unfortunately, I do not have the time for that. But I am more than happy to comply with Brian H’s request to make DiskLED open source.

You can find DiskLED’s source code on GitHub. Have fun!

Getting started with Bash on RISC OS

The Iconbar - Fri, 06/15/2018 - 07:53
There are lots of hidden treasures to try for free in PackMan (see our review from 2017). In this article we are going to go into more depth with Bash. Bash is a freely available on many systems (I use it all the time at work on Macs and Linux systems). It also provides the basis for running many other tools and automating things by writing short Bash scripts.

Once installed, you can start writing Bash directly in a single-tasking window by running the Bash App. But the best way to run it is from a terminal window. Just type the command Bash and you will be using bash.

Type in exit to return to the standard RISC OS command line.

Type in help to give you a list of commands at any time.

If you want to learn more about Bash, we recommend you start with the Wikipedia entry.

What is your favourite tool on !PackMan?

A new monitor for my RISC OS and Mac systems

The Iconbar - Fri, 06/08/2018 - 07:53
Recently I decided to upgrade my monitors. I have a MacBook Pro laptop and I have 2 monitors - one at work which runs my laptop (replacing a 27 inch 10 year old Apple work monitor) and one for home also hosts my RaspberryPi and Titanium. I wanted a high resolution (3840 x 2160 for work) monitor which would also play nicely with my other machines.

The latest Macs use Apple's USB-C connections. You can buy adapters for connecting in other types of connector such as HDMI or you can now buy monitors which have a USB-C connector. Apple offers an LG monitor which provides 5K and can also power the computer and handle the display on a single cable. If money is no object, you want an uncluttered desk and a 'to die for' screen quality on the latest Macs, the LG UltraFine 5K Display is the current top option.

Not only is this monitor very expensive but it will not work on my RISC OS kit as it only has a USB-C input.... One monitor which has also had a lot of very favourable press coverage is another LG model (27UD88-W). This is much more affordable (under 500 pounds), has USB-C input (not powerful enough to act as a power supply as well but fine to drive a 4K display), and also allows for HDMI and DP-IN as well. There are even a couple of old style USB ports for good measure. So how well does this model work for all the machines?

Very well is the short answer. The screen quality is great and you can have all the machines power up and then switch between them. The 27UD88-W has a single joystick type control under the screen and (IMHO) this is one of the nicest switches I have used on monitors - 2 clicks and I am on a different screen. The screen is ultra-sharp on both the Mac and the lower resolution Titanium 1920 x 1200 display.

One word of caution on moving up to a higher resolution screen. My combined switch box (which allows me to share screen and keyboard/mouse through one switch box) does not work on the higher resolution screens. So if you are using a switch box, you may want to verify what it can support.

A really nice feature of the higher resolution screen is that you have your other machines accessible via VNC. This also gives you some idea of the extra 'real estate' the monitors can give you if you are working on a Mac.

If you are looking for a godo quality monitor to provide a high resolution display, which also plays well with your RISC OS kit, the LG 27UD88-W should be one of your shortlist.
