So, what would you like to see next?

Our mission at Arca Noae is to do what we can to ensure the longest term of usefulness of the OS/2 platform, for both individuals and enterprises. Part of that mission is addressed by updates to existing drivers and applications, part by adding new functionality to those softwares, and part by adding new drivers and/or applications entirely.

What we’d like to know is: What do you need to be able to stay on OS/2?

Other platforms (both closed and open source) tend to follow their own path. A large software developer in the state of Washington in the US decided a couple of years ago that the entire desktop interface was somehow no longer useful, and needed to be scrapped in favor of something completely different, taking a one-size-fits-all approach across desktops and mobiles. Linux has had desktop wars waging for decades between Gnome and KDE, and once Unity appeared, it seemed to draw almost universal scorn from both camps (and somehow, the steering groups of various distros tend to make unilateral decisions insofar as which desktops to include by default in their distros).

Arca Noae is different in that our direction should always be guided by the needs of the community. As we have pledged to reinvest as much of our earnings as possible into further development, we need to regularly solicit input from you, so that we may be assured we are heading in the right direction.

So please drop us a note on our contact page and let us know what you need. We’re listening, we care, and we’re not going away anytime soon.

[solved] Trouble registering for an account?

This is just a quick note to confirm that several hours ago we did indeed fix the issue causing the blank page on user registration.

Trouble registering for an account?

We are aware of an issue on the site when registering for an account. Upon clicking the Register button on the My Account page, the user is greeted with a blank page. Rest assured, your account has been created, but a minor internal error has occurred, preventing the acknowledgment from displaying.

Simply click the Back button in your browser, and if prompted to re-send your previous post, click Yes or OK. The My Account page should redisplay, with a message that the account already exists. That indicates that the account has been created successfully (attempting to create an account which really does exist will immediately return the error and not a blank page).

If you continue to experience difficulties, please do not hesitate to use our contact form or email us directly at webmeister [at] arcanoae [dot] com.

We apologize for any inconvenience which this may cause, and are working to correct the problem.

Online Store Opening Pains

We never knew how much work it would be to get an online store like this operational! From custom components for the site to back-end scripts to entering descriptions and uploading content, everyone at Arca Noae has been working very hard to get things working. We have some things available now, with more coming in the days and weeks ahead.

If you experience problems, please be patient with us, we are working as hard as we can. Also if you see some things missing, again, please be patient. We are adding items as quickly as we possibly can.
