    We are going to do some "minor" adjustments to the 16 bit version of
    wcNAV. MINOR only. All major work is for the 32 bit version.

    So here is your chance to get in your "minor change" items for
    wcNAV.

    Here is what was done so far:

    1) wcNAV Mustang information changed to Santronics. (About me)

    2) You can now adjust the IDLE TIMEOUT in wcCONFIG.

    Items to be done:

    1) I am going to look into a small FONT problem I see
    with the editor sometimes. Its so annoying on my
    Windows 95 machine at home.

    2) We are going to see if the Internet Explorer problem of
    uploading a large file is related to wcNAV. We are not
    sure if this bug is in WCNAV or in the MURKWORKS virtual
    sockets. If the later, there is nothing we can do about
    it because we will not be licensing the MURKWORKS stuff
    for future the 32 bit version of WCNAV. But if the
    problem is with wcNAV, then we will try to find the
    bug and hit it with a BIG HAMMER! <g>

    Again, this is your chance to suggest REASONABLE minor changes
    that can be done within our schedule.

    Thanks

    Support for web and email links within the message. Click able. Partial html support I guess you could call it.

    I see what Keith means now. No, this will be part of WCNAV32. Its
    called HTML launching if there is no HTML support. But the wcNAV32 browser will have a HTML browser built-in so launching will be inherited.

    Ability to work offline.

    Part of WcNAV32

    Not loose email in progress if connection is lost.

    Could be investigated to see what can be done. Auto Save into a
    local drive file, but how to handle a recovery situation may be
    complex. If saving to a file is sufficient, then thats ok.
    But how to give the layman the "ideal" there is something to
    recover 'interactively', is another story for this version
    of wcNav.

    Hector,

    If I'm reading this correctly, plans would be to have a browser built into wcNav32? But the option to use other browsers would still be available
    right?
    Seems like that would be a step backwards.... Or am I reading this
    incorrectly?

    But the wcNAV32 browser will have a HTML browser built-in so launching will
    be inherited.

    Set it up like outlook. Have an inbox and outbox. Window stays open and
    saves to the outbox. When connection is restored items in outbox will be
    sent and moved to sent items.

    Each copy of modern Windows already has a "Internet Explorer" component
    brower. It allows ANY application to "pull it" into its own INTERFACE.

    Hence, since wcNAV32 is going to be A Windows 32 bit system, and the
    majority of people are using IE already, it is a STEP forward to
    augment WCNAV32 with the system the user is probably already using.

    Now to answer the question will be optional?

    Of course!

    Navigator also has a "Browser Component" that applications can
    build into there system. But you (the user) has to install it.

    And then we will have a FIELD, just like it is now, to simple
    call an existing EXE.

    Nothing will change, in that regard. WcNAV32 will come with
    a BUILT-IN Win32 browser component.

    Again, the ODDS are very HIGH that if you are going to be using
    windows, now and into the future, MICROSOFT has already "BURNED"
    into the operating system the "Browser Technology".

    That is what half the LAWSUIT was all about with the FEDS, and
    Microsoft "argument" that they have the right to integrate the
    OS with internet technology.

    Dave,

    To me it almost sounds like how NeoPlanet does it, that is it uses the core
    of MSIE as the browser but presents its own interface.

    Working late or working early?

    I hate it when others are up late on a work night like me.

    You mentioned Fonts before, now is this where you were speaking of better
    font selection or the occasional auto font selection that seems to be made
    for you?

    I have seen it in messages before, but rarely, most often I see it on the icons after launching wildcat.exe.

    Doesn't seem to cause any real problems, but is odd when all of a sudden
    the
    fonts are about a size or two larger than before.
