**** FEBRUARY 1999 ******************************** ISSUE #201 ****


MEETING STARTS - 09:30 - FEB 6th





MAIN LINE 64/128/PC USERS - Room 110 Last month, we had a bit of a hitch with our Wheels 128 demo - no fault of the program! Since we have to use monochrome mode for the 80-column display (forced by our display system), it made some portions of the desktop invisible. Rather than play blind man's buff, we deferred to this month - where we'll try to get the display right! Come for a re-show! For the PC session, we'll continue with the subject of boot or emergency or rescue disks. We'll emphasize Win95; but the teachings are - we hope - applicable to other systems (including Win98). We'll resume with Part II - the MS Emergency Recovery Utility. There WILL be time for Q & A; so bring questions.

[continued on page 3]



As has been the case for many a January meeting, a winter storm hindered our meeting effort. Ice and rain ruled the day. However, the weather was not so bad. A few hearty members made it to the meeting. Due to the low turnout, our scheduled presentation was put on a back burner. Instead, since Ted Dean showed up with his Amiga needing some attention, we spent most of the meeting trying to get Ted's machine sorted out.

So, for February, weather permitting, we can review some of December's presentation on file systems if anyone still has questions. Otherwise, the CatalyzerII video will be the focus of the main presentation.

At the January meeting - which fortunately was NOT a washout - we had our first chance to take advantage of a new video projector for use with the computer systems. Up to now, we have used a VGA -> TV converter to display the PC output via the S-video input

[see more on p.3]




RENEWAL STATUS - at the end of January, when we have to remove from our member list those who have not renewed for 1999, we stand at 38 members, compared to 49 at the end of the 1998. We are happy that those folks have seen enough value in the group to renew. BUT, we are sorry to have lost roughly a fifth of our 1998 members. We hope that some of them will still re-join.

Turning to the future, if you know someone who has recently joined computing - or recently converted to a PC or Amiga, please let them know about us. We'll have plenty of extra copies of our newsletter at the meetings to help you spread the good word!

Also, we are looking for ways to let users know that we can provide support to a number of platforms; so we may be able to help them. Or, since user groups are reciprocal, THEY may be able to help US help others! If readers have any suggestions on spreading the word, please feedback to the Steering Committee members.




Most of you have heard, by now, of the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) - and have assumed that it is all being done by OTHERS. However, there is a way that anyone with a PC and internet access can participate.

You can install a program that works when your computer is otherwise idle. When you connect to the net, it goes - in the background - to a site where it can grab a batch of data. Then, it processes the data and transmits the results back to the SETI folks. Because of the enormous volume of raw data SETI collects, they need all the computing power they can get access to.

As of this time, apparently over 100,000 people have signed up to share the computing burden!!

If you are interested, go to:

FOR SALE: C-64 and a Seikosha printer, in original boxes. If interested, call Bobbie at 610-356-9682. (1)

FOR SALE: do you have a need to replace some ailing Commodore part? Are you looking for a particular piece of Commodore software? Or do you need to replace a master disk for Commodore software that no longer works - but you'd like it to?

Then, first contact our inventory manager, Charles Curran. Between his stash of club inventory - or another stash in Emil's hands - we may be able to fill that need.

Similarly, if you have a problem or need relating to Amiga hardware or software, be sure to head in the direction of our Amiga leader, John Deker.

of a big screen TV. And have used the composite video input on that same TV to display the 64 or 128 outputs. As those who have used such a system can attest, the image quality leaves much to be desired!

For this meeting, we had the use of a high end video projector, an InFocus LP425 unit, that uses the new, high brilliance Texas Instruments DLP display technology. The projector accepts composite video (from a VCR, videocamera or computer, like the 64 or 128) and VGA/SVGA computer signals (resolutions of 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 are accepted). Because of the high brightness of the display, it was not necessary to have a dark room - the lights could be at a comfortable, talking level. This made for an easy-to-run demo setting. We hope to have the unit for future meetings. If you did not get a chance to see it in action, come to the next meeting and see!

For the 8-bit portion of the meeting, we had the new WHEELS 128 operating system - from ace programmer, Maurice Randall. We were able to start the OS up on the club 128 and get a color view in 40-column mode. However, to get the better capability of the 80-column mode, we had to be in monochrome, because of the limitations of the big screen TV display (80-column composite is monochrome only). Unfortunately, yours truly had not tested mono mode and the color palette chose made much stuff INVISIBLE on the screen!! Not having the keen skill to immediately rectify the deficiency, we decided to defer any further looking until the next meeting, where we hope to be more VISIBLE! 8-bitters are urged to come take a look.

For the PC portion, we had a pretty extended Q & A discussion. This was followed by, what turned out to be part 1 of, the subject of Emergency disks and utilities. This session followed pretty closely the article in the October newsletter - which covered making a boot disk (or StartUp disk) in Win95. See a further note on this item elsewhere in this issue. We plan to continue the subject next time.



Quick and Cheap

by Thomas Johnson

Did you ever desire a program to accomplish a certain task, but you were short on money or thought you would not use the program enough to make it worthwhile?

Many specialized programs can be found freely available for downloading from the Internet.

Be aware that there are two different types of programs offered on the Net. Freeware is free to download. There is no cost involved. Shareware can be downloaded; but the author asks to be paid a certain amount, if you use the program more than a few times. Some programs are free to test for a certain period of time before payment is due.

One freeware program I recently downloaded is Irfan View, by Skiljan Irfan, a graphics viewing and editing program for 95, 98 and NT use. For the details, I quote the author from one of his pages: "Irfan View is a fast image viewer that supports animate GIFs and many other image formats....AIF, ANI, BMP, CAM, CLP, CPT, CUR, DCX, DIB, EPS, RLE, JPG, GIF (including animated GIF), PNG, PCX, TIF, IFF/LBM, LWF, PSD, TGA, RAS, ICO, AVI, WMF, EMF, PBJ, PBM, PGM, PPM, and PCD.

"Irfan View can convert images between most of the supported formats, either individually or in batch mode. Irfan View can also perform some basic image editing and processing functions, including cut, crop, resize, resample, change the color depth, adjust brightness and adjust contrast. It has command line options and it can display images in a slideshow and extract frames from ANI files, AVI movies and animated GIFs.

Many sites with more information can be found by using a search engine. Enter freeware AND Irfan View. (Be sure to capitalize the AND.) One hundred plus sites are listed.



PC TIP - 1

Recently, I have come to appreciate very much a relatively unmentioned feature in Windows Accessories. From Windows 3.1x thru Windows 98, there is a text editor called NOTEPAD (notepad.exe - usually found in your windows directory).

For quite some time, I have tried to maintain a diary of things that I do with a system, problems encountered and solutions (if any) to those problems.

I've usually done this with either the DOS text editor - called EDIT ( - usually in your DOS directory) - or with the above-mentioned Notepad accessory. This has involved firing up the editor, opening the diary (text) file, then doing the editing. But, there is a nicer and more helpful way to do it:

  1. start by firing up Notepad, then opening a new text file
  2. begin the file by entering as the first line .LOG
  3. save the file (say in a subdirectory called NOTES), as something brilliant like ThisPC or System or Charlie or whatever, then exit the editor
  4. set up an icon in Program Manager (Win 3.1x) or a shortcut on the desktop (in Win 95 or 98), which has for its command line:

    C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe C:\NOTES\Name.txt

    (or whatever filename you used)

  5. now, whenever you wish to add to your diary, simply double-click the icon and your file will come up in Notepad.

But, it will also have a new line added to the end of the file which shows the DATE and TIME that you re-opened the file for editing. Just add your comments and save the file. Next time you open it a new date and time will be appended ready for you to add your new notes without consulting a clock or calendar.

The convenience and utility make it much easier to keep track of what happens on your system. Give it a try!

[by Emil Volcheck]

Last time, I listed several general topics to consider in the Year 2000 (Y2K) problem. Briefly, they were:

A. Computer/systems related
B. Non-systems - (infra-structure)
C. Your role as a supplier

Taking these in reverse order:

C. Your role as a supplier to others (organizations or individuals) may put you in the position of needing to carefully and accurately spell out your ability to fulfill that supply role when the end of this year comes around.

I understand that some organizations have chosen to avoid any statements or committments on that ability - to avoid the potential for legal actions against them, should they prove to be wrong. If you are on the receiving end of such an approach, you'll obviously have to be very careful with that supplier. Should you choose that approach, you may find yourself with the potential of losing your supplier position to a competitor who is more forthcoming.

In my thinking, each situation is pretty unique and I can't propose to address the issue any further - except to emphasize that it could be a make or break situation.

B. Infrastructure - this venue relates to the maintenance of essential services like the local power, gas, water, telephone, etc. For most of us, no direct role is feasible - other than to follow the progress, or lack thereof, of these entities - and, possibly, urge legislators or regulators to keep the pressure on and monitor the progress appropriately.

As the perception of the situation broadens - and the deadline remains immovable - there has been an increase in publicity and attention to the infrastructure (as well as increasing hysteria!). It will probably not be difficult to learn how the locals do!

A. Computer and systems related - it is to this area that I want to expound upon in the next part and again express the hope that MLCUG folks will engage with each other on this subject that is rather nearer and dearer to their hearts!

As has been the case for many a January meeting, a winter storm hindered our meeting effort. Ice and rain ruled the day. However, the weather was not so bad. A few hearty members made it to the meeting. Due to the low turnout, our scheduled presentation was put on a back burner. Instead, since Ted Dean showed up with his Amiga needing some attention, we spent most of the meeting trying to get Ted's machine sorted out.

So, for February, weather permitting, we can review some of December's presentation on filesystems if anyone still has questions. Otherwise, the CatalyzerII video will be the focus of the main presentation.


As noted previously, January's meeting turned into a "Help Ted Dean" meeting where we attempted to cure some of the problems Ted was having with his Amiga.

Ted's problems started with a couple of attempts to install the new version of Directory Opus MagellanII. MagellanII as it is called requires a two step installation. The first step is to install version 5.5. Ted had no problems with this step. The second step was to upgrade to version 5.8. For some reason the serial number protection scheme failed to work on Ted's Amiga. In Ted's effort to resolve this problem, he experienced a crash or two which had somehow corrupted his boot partition.

NOTES: Having been a long time user of DOpus, I've upgraded to the latest version on two Amigas (A2060 & A1260) without incident. Another member, Bill Bacon, recently installed the same DOpus software that Ted tried to install, also without incident. Ted & I tried to install a second copy of the DOpus software on Ted's machine and ran into the same problem again. Ted's machine is an A1200 migrated to a Micronik Infinitiv tower running a 1260 Blizzard accelerator with 1230 SCSI. His CDROM & hard drive are connected to the 1230 SCSI and his IDE bus is empty.

Our efforts during the meeting were focused on trying to cure his disk problems short of backing up everything, reformatting & restoring. At first we tried using Quarterback Tools. When QBTools failed to get through the entire partition without problem, we resorted to trying Disk Salvage. However, we ran out of time before completing our rescue efforts. We ended our rescue efforts to go to lunch.


Recently I had an occasion to help Bill Bacon install an old PicassoII board in his A3000. (I've had one for several years in my A2060 running the latest version of the original Picasso software.) Bill's Picasso was a resold used board from Software Hut. With it he received the latest version of Cybergraphx software (not the original native software), a brief instruction sheet (not the original comprehensive manual), and a relatively short video cable.

We installed the board into Bill's relatively stock A3000 that has 2+8 megs of RAM and an IOBlix board. The hardware installation went without incident and was recognized in the Amiga's SHOWCONFIG output.

We next attempted to utilize the Cybergraphx software. To our disappointment, the A3000 was running at a crawl after the software was installed and running. We spent a brief amount of time reviewing the software docs for any configuration info that would help restore some speed, but we didn't find anything. I must say that in my opinion the Cybergraphx docs do not adequately describe the affects of the configuration settings.

Failing to resolve the problem, I suggested to Bill that we install my native PicassoII software. We removed the Cybergraphx software before installing the native Picasso stuff. What an improvement the native software made in speed. Yes, we lost some of the advantages of the Cybergraphx software, but the tradeoff was amazing.


Ever since IBrowse v1.2x came out I've had problems making it display graphics on Picasso screens. The installation of PicassoII on Bill Bacon's machine caused me to go back & review all configuration settings. I had previously given way to using IBrowse v1.12 on my A2060 with PicassoII so as to enjoy 256 color Picasso screens. I had also previously tried making Cybergraphx & Picasso96 work a couple of years ago, but ran into problems then. Recently, after fooling around with the CHANGESCREEN & IBROWSE software, I found a reasonable compromise to making things work:

1. In CHANGESCREEN the Programs MUI-PUBLICSCREEN-IBROWSE is set to DEFAULT mode with COPY CONTINUOUSLY checked and set to 5 EACH SEC.

2. In MUI the IBrowse Picasso screen is limited to a 7 bit screen of 128 colors. 256 colors seems to cause problems.


The last settings are not essential, but seem to give the best compromise between picture quality and speed.


DISK SALVAGE -- disk checking & repair utility. Early versions on Aminet, later versions are commercial software.

DOPUS MAGELLAN -- exceptionally good commercial file manager & alternative desktop (version 5.5+).

QUARTERBACK TOOLS -- commercial disk checking & repair utility.

SYSLOG -- from Aminet a Unix-like system log utility for capturing & managing personal logs as well as capturing error messages, etc, from application & system software.


(Or things you can ask your Amiga on a first date.)

My Amiga is pretty smart if you ask the right questions. What follows is a series of Q&A that I asked my Amiga recently. Not all of these questions can be asked of every Amiga, but as you can see, my Amiga has a lot to say when asked a few simple questions. What secrets can your Amiga tell you? Do you know how to ask the right questions? Can you say CLI?

If you have either software or hardware for your Amiga that has taken your fancy, please bring it to our attention. I'm sure your specific interests will be of interest to others. Let me know if this is the case at the next meeting, or leave me email on our BBS. Remember, a user group is only as rewarding as the sum of the efforts of its individual members.
