Hi Maarten,
thanks very much for your reply. Wine sounds like a good route to go, by your experience and I will give it a try.
I would love to see your scripts - thank you. My email address is nigel_heasman AT yahoo.co.uk
Thanks again for your help,
regards

Hi Maarten,
thanks for your reply - I haven't tried Wine yet - still on a steep learning curve with Linux, Gentoo distribution!
Have you found it pretty stable for running programs that haven't yet been ported to Linux?? Any pitfalls to watch out for??
Thanks again for the suggestion,
Nigel

DA on Linux

Hi folks,
I've been out of touch for a while - is there or will there be a version of Digital Atmosphere that can run on a Linux (Gentoo) computer?? Do hope so!
thanks for any update

Upload problems

Hi, I am using DAWS v1.1i regularly and, generally, it is doing a good job running scripts to produce and upload charts to my web site. A great progam. However, I am finding that if my internet connection is very busy or has disconnected, uploading appears to go ahead but, in fact, it fails. Is ther...

using time/date Tokens and SET

Hi, I am currently using the date and time tokens (@MMZ@DDZ@HHZ@NNZ) in a script, as part of the file names. I am firstly saving these files in a local directory and then uploading them to a web site. Then do the same for a different chart. So far I haven't seen any problems using this method but ju...

Hi Chris,
many thanks for the help. Have tried it out and it works just fine.
I had forgotten about putting the QUIT command at the end of the script!!

Hi again!

Is there any way of setting this to always be ON, or is there a command line wor...
