As much as I would like to it is pretty unlikely.  I can't even get caught up on the Windows side, much less think about developing 50+ programs for another operating system.
 
Thanks for your kind words on the software.  I really appreciate it.
Understood, Scott. Just thought I'd ask.

Hi Fernando,
 
Thanks for your e-mail.  We do not have plans at the current time to create MAC versions of our programs; however, we have had customers who run the programs on MAC PCs via something called "Virtual Windows" with good success.  We have not tried this personally, but have had good reports.

I have found Virtual PC running Win XP to be very unstable. I would sure love to have ACLog for the Mac platform, though I realize that you can't do everything. Do you think it will make any difference for you when Mac moves to Intel processors? Frankly, you really do have the best logging programs, but Virtual PC/Windoze drives me crazy!

ACLog on the Mac X

n2fq <n2fq@...>
 

Hello.
I've enjoyed your software for the past years.
The time for me has come to move to the Mac X platform.

Any considerations in having ACLog on the Mac?

tnx.

Re: Upgrading to 2.8 problem

Edward Leicester <kg4qmi@...>
 

Randy, my experience has been totally different. I have never had an upgrade reload the old data. I always have to move it manually or just re input all the info, like tab order, colors, qth, etc. And even then, when I copy the old fiiles into the new folder, they never come up just right. And that appiles to just loading the program on a new pc.

Until last week. I put a new S-ATA HDD in my PC (2.4ghz processor w/1 gig of ram running XP Home) and loaded 2.8, said no to upgrade, copied the files, imported the log, started the program and...darned if it didn't work. Except for fine tuning column widths, (I may not have moved that file) it was all there. Just like on the old HDD.

So you're right, Go Figure. Just another of the undocumented features (or is that opportunites) I credit to the priviledge of doing business with Uncle Bill.

Tom,

Same thing happened to me when I upgraded to 2.8. I
have been running Scotts program starting with 2.3 and
have upgraded each time with no problem. This time
downloaded the program and started having the same
verbage and trouble you did. Went through the usual
reboot, delete program, download again. Did this 2 or
3 times before posting to the list. Scott wrote back
with the same answer he did you. Same results! When
I answered NO to the upgrade, the program appeared
with all the proper upgrades. Go Figure!!!

Just courious as what system you are running for

Re: Upgrading to 2.8 problem

Randy-
Glad to know it just wasn't me. For the record, I am running XP Home
edition on a homebrew PC running a 450 Mhz Pentium equipped with
three 9Gbyte hard drives, a floppy, a CD ROM and a CD R/W drive.
Hope that helps. The export 2.7 and import into 2.8 sounded like the
way to go. Maybe the software didn't want to go through all of that
work and when we answered NO, it just went out and found the log!!!
I hate it when that happens (hi, hi). Really - glad it all functions
properly!
Have a great day-

Re: Sort Log on Date

Charles Morrison <cfmorris@...>
 

Thanks Tom, thats exactly what I did, restarted it around 12:00 today and its progressing now.  However, its been sorting the database now for 7 and a half hours and its only 3/4 of the way done, is that a bit excessive?  My database has swollen considerably lately as I've dumped all of my contest logs into it.
 
None the less,  at 9+ hours to reorder the database (abt 12mb) on a 1.7ghz machine, I find it a bit excessive and dont suggest doing this too often.

I have about 6600 logs and if I change a date  back in the middle of the log it can take  a couple of hours on a 800mhz machine.
 
I try to shut of everything else, I use the 3 finger reset and bring up the list of items running and shut of most everything not needed ( running xp pro) so I don't think your are way out of line, but if the boxes don't march along, reset the computer and try again, I always make sure I have a good back up copy of the log before tryiong to sort.  in fact I usually work on the copy and then save it as my main log when done.. I don't want to type that all back in....
 
so if the squares ain't progressing I'd  restart it, sometimes I have to do this several times..I don't know why.. but it should bring up a second block  in 20 minutes or so.. if working.  at least that is how mine works..

Hello I need help with my Pegasus and ACLOG. I
am

I do
not think it is
the rig software that is causing the problem
infact the problem is
probley the Operator....ME....hihi.

OK I boot up everything and it looks like it
is
all going to work,
in ACLOG I connect to the internet and start
getting DX spots which
is great then I see a station that I want to
make
a contact with so
I clicl on the call and then I get this error
message fron
ACLOG.......
"Operation valid only when the port is open",
after clicking OK it
does put all the info on ACLOG about the
station
but it does not
change my radio frequency to where the DX
station
is....Now all that
said it does not matter which program I am
running
to control the
Pegasus. When I go to the Rig interface and
check
to is if it is
reading the radio frequency it is the only
problem
is that it is not
changing the frequency on the radio, working
one
way but not the
other. Hope I have explained this well enough
for
someone to help me.

Make sure you have the correct com port selected
on
the rig interface rig as
well as having all the parameters set to match
your
com port settings.

In addition, for whatever com port you choose,
you
cannot have another
program running that uses the same com port.

Hello I need help with my Pegasus and ACLOG. I am
runign N$PY and
TenTec software and both do the same thing so I do
not think it is
the rig software that is causing the problem
infact the problem is
probley the Operator....ME....hihi.

OK I boot up everything and it looks like it is
all going to work,
in ACLOG I connect to the internet and start
getting DX spots which
is great then I see a station that I want to make
a contact with so
I clicl on the call and then I get this error
message fron
ACLOG.......
"Operation valid only when the port is open",
after clicking OK it
does put all the info on ACLOG about the station
but it does not
change my radio frequency to where the DX station
is....Now all that
said it does not matter which program I am running
to control the
Pegasus. When I go to the Rig interface and check
to is if it is
reading the radio frequency it is the only problem
is that it is not
changing the frequency on the radio, working one
way but not the
other. Hope I have explained this well enough for
someone to help me.

Make sure you have the correct com port selected on
the rig interface rig as
well as having all the parameters set to match your
com port settings.

In addition, for whatever com port you choose, you
cannot have another
program running that uses the same com port.

Thanks for the reply Dee, it does not use a comm port
it uses a file called C:&#92;Pegasu&#92;Pegasus.out that is
where it gets the info from for the Pegasus to show
the frequency and that works fine, I just cant get it
to talk to the rig when I click on a DX call to change
the frequency on the rig. The Pegasus is a Computer
controled rig ONLY no knobs at all so the computer has
to control everything, it is on comm 4 and works fine.
I know there is somethink that I am doing wron and
hoped there was someone out there running a Pegasus
with ACLOG.

Re: Uh Oh... error

Charles Morrison <cfmorris@...>
 

Thanks Scott.  After it bombed out around 12:00 or so, I rebooted and restarted it again.  This time however, I disabled Mcafee and it appears as though its progressing now with several "blocks" at the top of the screen.  I just got a bit worried when i woke up this morning and it hadnt moved after 9 hours!  Aside from the disabling of the Mcafee, I guess the best advice is to "not play with it".. although I didnt click anything in the program after it started (you really cant anyway!) I also didnt minimize it or move the screen around.  Just leaving it alone for the time.  I have two computers at the radio, so Im using a different one for email right now.
 
Thanks again for the reassurance!

Hi Charlie,
 
The sort time depends on how "unsorted" the log is as much as anything else.  If you have just entered one record that needs to move all the way to the beginning of the log, that can take much longer than sorting many entries just a few records back.  As soon as your log is sorted the process will complete.
 
If you are not using version 2.7 or 2.8, please go ahead and upgrade.  The sorting is a bit faster.  Also, make sure that you aren't running any other software, especially a virus check of your hard drive.
 
If you continue to have trouble, please e-mail me you log file directly to snkdavis@... and I'll be glad to sort it here.

Sort Log on Date

Charles Morrison <cfmorris@...>
 

Scott,

With 23,000 records in my log, what is a reasonable amount of time to expect for the resort on date process to take?  I realize that the dialog box says be patient, but I started it at 2:00am and at 11:00 this morning, it still hasn’t finished.  I stopped it, rebooted the pc and restarted it again.  This time I noticed that the bar across the top began (which it didn’t last time) but hasn’t processed beyond 1 square in the far left top corner (in approx. 1 hour so far). 

I know the program appears to "freeze" while processing, and have come to expect that, but should it take over 9 hours for it to finish this process?  This is an AthlonXP 1.7ghz with 512mb ram and nothing else running.  Could it be antivirus or something like that causing it to hang? 

I've done this process before, and it did take a good while for it to process, but never quite 9 hours.

Thanks

I can confirm this behavior. I just upgraded from 2.5 to 2.8 and
right clicking on the DXSpot does NOT cause the radio to change to
frequency/mode. I suspect that the Transfer file is not being
written properly. I have not used 2.6 or 2.7, so I do not know when
the change occurred, but the bug is definitely in 2.8.

I see 2 errors.
1) In 2.5, you open DX spotting configuration, opened the port and
clicked on Done and it worked, it 2,8, if you click on Done, it
tells you that going to the spot is only valid if the port is open.

2) ACLog is NOT writing the pegasus.in file to the \pegasus
directory.

Re: ACLOG 2.8 Error

Greg <cajin_77@...>
 

Well I think the problem may be with LOTW and not ACLog. I tried it
again this morning and it worked perfect. This has happened before but
that was the first time I got that error message and the program shut
down on me. Everything seems to be working now. I just wish the ARRL
would make it easier to use LOTW or goto a system like EQsl instead.

Hi Greg,

I'm sorry that you have run into trouble. Without being able to
duplicate
the run time error, the only suggestion I have is to try
uninstalling AC Log
and then install it again.

LoTW can be slow at times. If your contacts don't download
immediately
after upload, wait a few hours and the click Download > All Since
from the LoTW
form. Enter in a recent date and your contacts should download.
They will be
marked appropriately in AC Log.


Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Re: Sort Log on Date

catfishtwo@...
 

I have about 6600 logs and if I change a date  back in the middle of the log it can take  a couple of hours on a 800mhz machine.
 
I try to shut of everything else, I use the 3 finger reset and bring up the list of items running and shut of most everything not needed ( running xp pro) so I don't think your are way out of line, but if the boxes don't march along, reset the computer and try again, I always make sure I have a good back up copy of the log before tryiong to sort.  in fact I usually work on the copy and then save it as my main log when done.. I don't want to type that all back in....
 
so if the squares ain't progressing I'd  restart it, sometimes I have to do this several times..I don't know why.. but it should bring up a second block  in 20 minutes or so.. if working.  at least that is how mine works..
