God Ginrai: what? I don't remember any actually being made.
2021-10-20 02:33:51 UTC
Lego Batman: Okay thanks.
2021-10-19 14:00:38 UTC
codepoet: he's got it on github, if i can fix it, i'll send him a pull request
2021-10-19 13:58:36 UTC
codepoet: i can take a look, but that's different. its a SDK app wrapper around a web page -- and it should work, just not be optimized. Shuswap should fix that since he's the dev. I'm just trying to get more games that would bluescreen my Touchpad to work.
2021-10-19 13:52:33 UTC
Lego Batman: The app works great! Thanks! Can you fix the Newsz next when you get time?
2021-10-19 13:33:38 UTC
codepoet: If you have two Touchpads you can play against each other with local network play!
2021-10-19 13:16:16 UTC
codepoet: BTW, on another topic, I figured out how to patch PDK apps "at rest" so I can update their IPKs in the Museum to work on TouchPad. The first one is UNO: http://appcatalog.webosarchive.com/showMuseumDetails.php?category=Revisionist+History&count=27&app=2162
2021-10-19 13:14:13 UTC
codepoet: I imagine HP would have had to do something similar on the Touchpad to support most printers -- and just didn't have time to get around to it
2021-10-19 13:13:10 UTC
codepoet: we called them "Print Plugins" and I designed the icon. They're still there, and still supported -- you can tell which ones I brought in because they have the same base icon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=print+plugin&i=mobile-apps&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
2021-10-19 13:12:48 UTC
codepoet: for each brand of printer we wanted to support, we had to get a driver app made by the manufacturer.
2021-10-19 13:11:23 UTC
codepoet: When I worked at Amazon I struck a deal with the webOS Printer Support team to integrate their code into Amazon's Android tablets
2021-10-19 13:11:03 UTC
Lego Batman: Thanks for trying. I do remember seeing a webOS printer at Staples back in the day. https://www.webosnation.com/hp-reportedly-merge-printing-group-personal-systems-group-webos-printers-one-step-closer-reality
2021-10-19 13:09:55 UTC
codepoet mini: I have a Samsung printer, and two Brother printers, the oldest one from the early 2000s (still works better than the Samsung which is only 3 years old.) I can print to at least the old Brother from anything in the house, including my NeXTStation and Apple IIGS...but none of my webOS devices will print to any of them...
2021-10-19 11:45:30 UTC
mazzinia: never tried to
2021-10-19 08:26:11 UTC
nomad84: I have not, I have a mostly age appropriate HP printer but it never worked
2021-10-19 05:31:39 UTC
Lego Batman: Has anyone had any luck printing from the TouchPad?
2021-10-19 02:17:49 UTC
EndMe: Hey @codepoet thanks for inviting me to the PalmDB server. It's an awesome place!
2021-10-18 01:39:40 UTC
codepoet mini: Share Space got a bug fix today, and the Docs and SDK have been updated
2021-10-18 01:38:38 UTC
codepoet: Its a good server, and I'm on it as well. Covers the full range of Palm (original handhelds, weird offshoots, webOS and the new-and-disappointing Plam)
2021-10-14 13:04:41 UTC
codepoet: Yup, go to their website: https://palmdb.net/ Look under the "Community" menu, there's a "Join Us on Discord" menu option.
2021-10-14 13:04:02 UTC
brent: Got an invite to palmdb? I am on here from non-webos devices pretty much 100% of the time.
2021-10-14 13:00:44 UTC
codepoet mini: If you dont have a webOS device at all, and can't use SimpleChat, this definitely isn't your best place to be. SimpleChat users are, by definition, webOS users, so this server is setup for their needs.
2021-10-14 12:39:16 UTC
codepoet mini: Guys this Discord is primarily for webOS SimpleChat users who would like to occasionally join in from a modern PC or phone. The configuration in Discord is set so that the SimpleChat experience doesn't get trashed by Discord activities that SimpleChat can't handle. If SimpleChat isn't your primary chat tool for webOS chat, and you'd like all the newer features of Discord, you might be happier in the PalmDB server.
2021-10-14 12:36:55 UTC
jhonn: Yeah, it’s been this way for a while. It would be nice to see who’s been joining :)
2021-10-14 12:20:06 UTC
nomad84: @codepoet: I can't wait for that video
2021-10-14 06:17:14 UTC
EndMe: Better be more than some friggin earbuds smh
2021-10-14 04:28:30 UTC
God Ginrai: The brand *is* dead. They've just tied strings to the corpse and are playing puppet show with it.
2021-10-14 04:11:25 UTC
God Ginrai: I don't understand why #welcome keeps showing new messages in the sidebar when it's just going to tell me I don't have permission to view the channel when I look at it...
2021-10-14 04:10:23 UTC
codepoet mini: Shared a movie trailer on MeTube y'all might like!
2021-10-14 01:26:34 UTC
codepoet: well if they really just made headphones for 3 years, I think the brand really is dead. I guess we'll see in a couple weeks!
2021-10-14 00:43:23 UTC
codepoet: we should be back up and running for now
2021-10-14 00:39:47 UTC
farhaddad: Someone on Instagram asked them if it’s a phone and they said it isn’t a phone.
2021-10-14 00:39:44 UTC
codepoet: i have a temporary work-around in place until the real geniuses figure it out
2021-10-14 00:39:39 UTC
codepoet: hey folks, some official communication here. MeTube is having trouble with YouTube videos, and it turns out its because Google has come up with a way to throttle youtube-dl. Its impacting everyone who uses that, not just webOS users. I'm monitoring the issue on GitHub and it looks like there might be a fix coming. Until then, MeTube is probably not going to work for most YouTube videos. I'll post on the Forum as well.
2021-10-14 00:29:15 UTC
luesjo12: so yeah it’s uh what they’ve been “working” on for 3 years
2021-10-14 00:01:37 UTC
God Ginrai: Btw, I realized something I desperately want the other day: An e-ink PalmOS ereader.
2021-10-14 00:01:37 UTC
luesjo12: actually correction: they posted 4 silhouettes of blurred earbuds
2021-10-14 00:01:22 UTC
codepoet mini: Some ears buds shouldn't keep them 'busy' for 3 years
2021-10-14 00:00:54 UTC
luesjo12: It actually isn’t, they posted a teaser to Instagram and it’s literally a blurred silhouette of the earbuds
2021-10-14 00:00:48 UTC
codepoet mini: Gotta be more than that
2021-10-14 00:00:27 UTC
God Ginrai: they are dragging the Palm brand name through the mud.
2021-10-14 00:00:16 UTC
God Ginrai: ugh
2021-10-14 00:00:06 UTC
luesjo12: Palm Buds Pro or whatever they call them, I know someone mentioned it leaked a bit early
2021-10-13 23:59:48 UTC
luesjo12: that new Palm announcement is supposed to be for new earbuds
2021-10-13 23:59:33 UTC
God Ginrai: I would have gotten the Urbane LTE if they had actually brought it West. LG has handled WebOS startlingly poorly, given the success it has given them in the TV space.
2021-10-13 23:59:04 UTC
codepoet: Forums seems to be working again
2021-10-13 23:33:14 UTC
codepoet: good luck!
2021-10-13 23:13:19 UTC
brent: I sent the person I mentioned an email. We're not exactly friends; I know her through the charity she runs.
2021-10-13 23:07:55 UTC
codepoet: a new one, though. the 2018 one was a bit of a disappointment, I gather
2021-10-13 22:43:47 UTC
brent: The Palm branded Android phone probably :'(
2021-10-13 22:43:01 UTC
codepoet: with the date 10-26-2021...
2021-10-13 22:31:01 UTC
codepoet: palm.com has announcement that says "We've Been Busy"
2021-10-13 22:30:52 UTC
codepoet: thatd be so cool!
2021-10-13 22:29:55 UTC
brent: I would like to port webOS to a smartwatch like the lokmat appllp 4, which I have on the way already. runs android 10
2021-10-13 22:01:20 UTC
brent: I'm going to ask today if someone I know can find one in SK
2021-10-13 22:00:39 UTC
codepoet mini: Apparently it was a carrier exclusive for South Korea only
2021-10-13 22:00:00 UTC
brent: oh it's basically not anywhere. I found it once a long while ago for like $850
2021-10-13 21:45:36 UTC
codepoet: i doesn't seem to exist on ebay or amazon though...
2021-10-13 21:22:29 UTC
codepoet: i didn't even know that was a thing, but now i want it
2021-10-13 21:21:55 UTC
God Ginrai: no
2021-10-13 13:35:45 UTC
brent: was the LG Watch Urbane LTE (model w120l) with webOS open sourced? is that UI available?
2021-10-13 13:19:48 UTC
2021-10-13 12:34:55 UTC
codepoet mini: I broke the screen both times I tried
2021-10-13 12:33:28 UTC
Lego Batman: I have opened the TouchPad before but I broke a few clips. You have to be very careful.
2021-10-13 12:11:50 UTC
mazzinia: mmm the touchpad is partially modular, but I don't manage to spot pics for the 3g variant
2021-10-12 20:57:28 UTC
EndMe: lmao sorry about that
2021-10-12 20:54:18 UTC
codepoet: but do us a favor and go easy on the multiple single line message, my touchpad is going to vibrate off its touchstone
2021-10-12 20:54:03 UTC
EndMe: Shiii imma go for it
2021-10-12 20:53:57 UTC
EndMe: and it's not there if you don't want to
2021-10-12 20:53:42 UTC
codepoet: well, stay in school then go for it ;)
2021-10-12 20:53:36 UTC
EndMe: It's there if you want to
2021-10-12 20:53:35 UTC
EndMe: why not y'know?
2021-10-12 20:53:14 UTC
EndMe: I mean
2021-10-12 20:53:11 UTC
codepoet: lol at a tablet with a RAID array
2021-10-12 20:53:06 UTC
EndMe: I'm just dumping my dreams on y'all i'm sorry
2021-10-12 20:53:01 UTC
mazzinia: mmm copying pics is not allowed :P
2021-10-12 20:53:00 UTC
EndMe: For multibooting purposes, RAID arrays, etc
2021-10-12 20:52:47 UTC
codepoet: kinda like https://frame.work/
2021-10-12 20:52:38 UTC
EndMe: IDK why nobody (that I've heard of at least) hasn't done this yet... but multiple SD card slots
2021-10-12 20:52:31 UTC
2021-10-12 20:52:21 UTC
EndMe: backlit navigation buttons? go ahead
2021-10-12 20:52:05 UTC
EndMe: if you want to swap that LCD for an OLED display, go right ahead
2021-10-12 20:51:55 UTC
EndMe: like, if you want to add in an SSD, go ahead
2021-10-12 20:51:41 UTC
EndMe: and this series of devices will be completely modular
2021-10-12 20:51:33 UTC
EndMe: Like, I have the dream or vision or whatever of developing and selling an up-to-date version of the Palm Tungsten series
2021-10-12 20:51:04 UTC
EndMe: not only repairability
2021-10-12 20:50:39 UTC
EndMe: at the consumer level at least
2021-10-12 20:50:21 UTC
EndMe: the ease of repair
2021-10-12 20:50:14 UTC
EndMe: Think of all the waste that will reduce
2021-10-12 20:50:10 UTC
EndMe: We need more modular stuff nowadays ngl
2021-10-12 20:49:56 UTC
2021-10-12 20:49:43 UTC
mazzinia: yeh, all the Go is modular
2021-10-12 20:49:34 UTC
EndMe: Now, some earlier Windows tablets (Windows 7, etc) were modular
2021-10-12 20:49:32 UTC
EndMe: modular tablets
2021-10-12 20:49:19 UTC
2021-10-12 20:49:13 UTC
codepoet: I've never seen the inside of full size Touchpad with 3G, but the TouchPad Go is quite modular inside (at least in EVT stage)
2021-10-12 20:49:01 UTC
2021-10-12 20:48:29 UTC
mazzinia: I may be wrong about the touchpad... I need to find the pics of the teardown to make sure
2021-10-12 20:48:18 UTC
EndMe: that's amazing
2021-10-12 20:48:05 UTC
2021-10-12 20:48:02 UTC
EndMe: I see why y'all love this thing so much now, in addition to all the other already good stuff about it
2021-10-12 20:47:51 UTC
