XWPWidgets

Hi

I have some code changes I would like to add to the rexx widgets (a fix 
for the F1 crash in some apps (PMView) when one of the rexx widgets is 
installed). Who has access? I contacted Paul he doesn't. Thanks

Re: XWPWidgets

IIRC it was Martin Lafaix who maintained Rexx Widgets.
When I wrote my widgets I sent the code to him.

See http://lafaix.online.fr/index.html.

IRC Network


Hi all,

For some time the #netlabs IRC channel is on the eCS IRC Network. This
worked pretty fine but some weeks ago the network started to get
permanent netsplits. The frequency of the split was rising a lot and by
now we have more splits than anything else.
Also the channel doesn't have an operator anymore, that got lost in the
splits too somehow.

I got several complains by users and I for myself am not really happy
anymore either. I tried to post to the eCS Network mailinglist to get
some comments but that mail never appeared, not sure if that list is
still up or not.

I talked to some people on #netlabs about a move. While some are for a
move, others say they prefer to stay on the eCS Network because
netlabs.org is still heavily liked to eComStation.

While I do not disagree about that I don't see any improvement in the
network itself. We started talking about the issues weeks ago and
nothing changed so far.

My proposal is thus to change network once and forever (I hope) to
Freenode. This is the place for OSS projects nowadays and this would
make sense once we push the Voyager idea anyway because many coders are
already on that network.

Freenode is pretty stable from my experience (I use it for years for
other channels I visit). Only drawback is that users have to register in

It's just an IRC network - I'm not fussed - I'll follow #netlabs 
wherever it goes..... and if this is on freenode - I'm more likely to 
lurk in some of the other channels on freenode too :)

That started many months ago.

Even that should be a simple thing to fix, but it seems no admins
in that network really cares.

I really don't like that idea. 1'st of all, we really don't need a network of
IRC either, as even the whole eCS community couldn't pull 1 server to
its limits. Forcing us into a large network with a bunch of rules we really don't
need - forcing us to find new names because others are already using what
we use today..... well, I don't see any good for us in this.

All we need is for Netlabs to start is own IRC server (again :-) ), then out
nice little community will be restored without netsplits and other annoying
problems.

Re: Re: IRC Network

Hi,

For what it's worth, my vote is with Allan.

I'm not sure how important my opinion is here, though. It seems like
this has already been decided. Just please do not expect me on
Freenode.

Regards,
Brendan

ok I see that some people do not like Freenode, what exactly is the 
reason for that? I use it for years and I don't see any problem with 
this network.

I forgot to tell about another simple solution.
Simply change the Netlabs channel, to a local channel 
on only one of the current IRC servers. As this forces any1
to use the same server, you have no more netsplit problems.

Of course, you can not use the server, that Netlabs is currently
pointing to, as it doesn't handle DCC requests. (and why on earth
you have been doing this for a year now, I really don't understand)
