That error seems to have gone, though the title of part of the general forum has also gone so accessing it can't be done directly. I have no idea what changed, or when, but it's good to see this working again.

This is a small update to say that ORG-Link is now a 'v2' with a lot of new tricks, like port and file relays, and spreadsheet file transfers.
 
I didn't expect to be posting this update but it looks as if the forum is now working again after a period of oddness.

Dear Lox
 
Nice to hear from you. Something appears problematic with uploading files. I've tried a couple of times.  
 
If you Personal Message me your email address I'll send you a copy direct.
 
The Build 304 ReadMe file suggests loading build 303 before updating to 304. Let me know in the PM if you need build 303 as well.
 
Sincerely and in good faith
Martin

Well, if you change your mind, I would be happy to swap the one I have (a 25-pin example) for one of Olivier's USB examples (and perhaps a few Nestle LION bars if you can hide that inside somewhere, ha!)...
 
Shipping from here would be a USPS Small Flat Rate Box. USD $34.25 (or GBP 26.44), takes about three weeks, but is tracked.
 
I wish every country's Postal Service had something like CNPost's ePacket! This would be so perfect for that.

Nice work there, Martin.
 
I like the way you've added your own vocabulary.
 
Dave.

Ooh, this is promising! THANK YOU! I'm snowed in at the moment (although, thankfully, the power has not yet gone out... but I'm waiting, as the snow is still falling...) but I'll take a proper look once the weather clears and I'm out of 'hunker down' mode...

 7   User Forum / User Post / More - What can I use my Organiser for?  on: Dec 1st, 2018, 12:58pm 
Started by MartinReid | Last post by MartinReid
Dear all
 
This is another of my 'What can I use my Organiser for?' threads.  
 
For those looking at OPL and database management.
 
Last time it was a 616 UK birds species ODB.
http://forum.psion2.org/YaBB.pl?board=UserPost;action=display;num=153558 0571
 
This time I've got consent from Adrian Massey - http://adrianmassey.no-ip.org/web1/index.php - to post some of his horse racing data. The RaceODB.Zip contains an 128k OPK with three ODB files on it. Jockeys.ODB 418 Records, Trainers.ODB 536 records, Horse.ODB 1028 race favourite records Jan to November 2018. So anyone interested in horse racing and looking to practice working with multiple related databases has plenty to go at. If you need you can break open the OPK in Jaaps OPK File Editor.
 
If for example you were considering the 14:05 at Newcastle (today) the 1st December 2018 and wanted to consider the favourite Buveur D'Air ridden by B.Geraghty and trained by N Henderson. You could cross reference the databases to find..
 
Buveur D'Air was the winning favourite at Sansown on 3rd Feb, with Jockey B.Geraghty placed 142 times from 386 races was trained by Nicky Henderson who has been placed 224 times from 464 runners.
 
I'll let you know later how it went on.
 
Anyway again sincerely and in good faith
Martin

minicom is a serial terminal application...
 
...hmmm...
 
Linux is indeed command-line based, the problem being that there is no single command line standard /per se/. Or, rather, that there is, but that it's a /de facto/ standard, one that "just happened that way" -- and, as such, it's freely ignored by certain Linux distros, although there are workarounds for that.
 
The 'standard' command shell is called bash, the 'Bourne-Again SHell'. The original Bourne SHell (bsh) was copyrighted by the Bell Labs crew and so is closed-source... bash however is F|OSS (free and open-source software) with a relatively permissive license.
 
However, I use a variant of Ubuntu Linux called Xubuntu ("Zoo-buntu" or "Ex-Ubuntu", either works), which differs from standard-issue Ubuntu primarily by way of the GUI desktop employed, and the 'buntus (as the overall collective family is typically referred to) prefer a different shell called 'dash' by default. The way you work around that, if you must have bash, is by formatting your 'shell script' (our term for the equivalent of a DOS *.BAT batch file) with a different "shebang" at the top.
 
So instead of writing, as the very first line...
 
#!/bin/sh
 
...to select the default shell, which is always linked (a link is a filesystem-native 'alias' sort of construct) as /bin/sh -- you type...
 
#!/bin/bash
 
...and that directs the system to use bash instead.
 
The next problem being that I don't know how to write bash scripts worth crap yet
