Some people are having problems accessing my website at the moment.

I suspect the problem is due to the Google Custom Search Engine on the home page. When I get home I'll have a look at what's going on.

In the meantime, if having problems, you can access the various areas directly:


Just to add to my woes, my ISP has sent me a letter to say it is closing its email services from next month, so I am switching to Gmail but it's causing MAJOR headaches trying to switch everything over (sheer number of sites and services as many are from the era before I had myown domain name).

I'm not going to put the new email address on here for obvious reasons but anyone who wants it is welcome to PM me so you can update address books in advance.

EDIT: Also, if anyone else has a new space bar for this keyboard...GRRRR.

Seems to be working again now. I've had to make a slight change in that the Custom Search Engine results now appear in a DIV on the home page rather than a separate page as before, but if anything that's better than before.

It seems that what happened was that I was using CSE v1 and Google have upgraded it since then. I vaguely remember having a rather poor email about it which I dismissed as spam/junk mail a while back.

There seems to be an error in the "Toolkit" section of the download page.

I have downloaded the "named pipe" drivers ("", author "Phil Borman" and "", author "Hans Lub"). But it seems, that both archives are from Hans Lub and NOT from Phil Borman.

I know that Phil has added a lot of useful "device drivers" (as the extremly useful PTH and REDIRECT device), but I also know, that "Hans Lub" was the first, who published a named pipe driver. And it seems, that both named pipe drivers are from Hans Lub.

Can you please check this. I cannot see the difference between the both device drivers.

I need it now for uQLx (which doesn't have an inbuild named pipe driver as SMSQ/E from QPC2) and don't know which to install.


I have now had a more intensive look into the both archives. I think:

"" is the source code (without the binary file, which must be LRESPRed)


"!" is the binary file which can be LRESPRed together with the manual.

Both contain the manual, they have different size, but seem to be (nearly) equal.

p.s.: Dilwyn, your site is great! I would be very pleased, if you would add my programs from my website to your page. They are all under the GPL, except the improved "EDLINE$()" FuNction from the DIY-Toolkit with support FuNctions, which is released under the original DIY-Toolkit-license.

p.p.s: I would be very pleased, if I can get some input, if my improved DIY-Toolkit EDLINE$() function (I have used the edited SMSQ version from Laurence Reeves, which runs on Minerva and SMS) and the support functions will run on other "machines" than QPC2 (I can currently only test in on QPC2 - I hope shortly also on uQLx with different OSs :-))
