Alright, the Compact Flash adapter in my retro box works fine now. It allows me to switch disks way more easily, which, in turn, allows for more experiments. 👌

At the moment, I mostly use one 128 MB CF card with OS/2 2.1 on it. That OS didn’t really have lots of network capabilities out of the box, so once again I’m using zmodem over a serial line to transfer data to/from other machines, just like I do with MS-DOS 5.0.

Tomorrow, I plan on doing some more work on my OS/2 GUI program. (Let’s see if I actually get to do it. 😂)

By the way, OS/2 2.0 turned 32 years today. 🥳

Well, it’s not pretty yet, but I’ve got a very basic GUI version of dusage going:

To me, it’s just super cool that I’m able to write programs for OS/2. 😎 That operating system will always hold a special place in my heart, I guess. It ran on my Model 80 back then (and maybe even the Model 30, but I'm not 100% sure anymore) and thus a lot of my earliest memories about using computers are OS/2 related. (And DOS related, of course. I had a dual boot setup on the Model 80, believe it or not …)

Anyway, writing that little program got much easier after I’ve found this page which contains a lot of valuable information:

https://komh.github.io/os2books/

This is a collection of OS/2 books by a person who’s apparently quite active in the realms of ArcaOS (one of OS/2’s “descendants”).

@adi lol 😂 Maybe I should make this the official pronunciation. 😏

@adi Yeah, so much I gathered. Man, I just suck at naming things. 😂

@adi Standard OS/2 doesn’t have a `du`, although I’m pretty sure that someone has ported the `du` from BSD or GNU at some point. Either way, it hardly matters, because I don’t think anybody (but me) will ever use this program anyway. 😅
