470945 - ref SDS F3 PX6N
470947 - ..
470948 - Experience today resolves doubt and worry from reporting on 090706
470949 - that 64-bit computers cannot be upgraded with the Windows XP 32-bit
470950 - operating system to improve productivity running 16-bit software.
470951 - ref SDS E6 NH3M Concerns on 090712 that software programs would run
470952 - slow with the Windows XP 32-bit operating system on 64-bit computers,
470953 - ref SDS F1 Y331, are further resolved by testing today after c16 has
470954 - been fully configured.
470956 - ..
470957 - SDS runs much faster on C16, HDX 18t Core 2 Quad QX9300 (2.53 GHz)
470958 - than on legacy Intel Pentium 3.2 GHz single-microprocessor computers,
470959 - and in following ways...
470961 - 1. C16 takes only 3 - 4 minutes to launch SDS and archive the
470962 - record for the first time each day, rather than 12 - 14
470963 - minutes required by c14. C16 with Intel core 2 quad 2.53
470964 - GHz processor and 7200 RPM disk takes less that 30% of the
470965 - time required for c14 desktop with Intel single Pentium 3.2
470966 - GHz processor and a 7200 RPM disk. C16 is 5 times faster
470967 - than c15, a notebook single Intel Centrino processor 1.8
470968 - GHz.
470970 - ..
470971 - 2. Saving large complex records with 200 or more subjects
470972 - takes about 1 second, whereas on c14 with 3.2 GHz
470973 - processor takes 4 - 6 seconds.
470975 - ..
470976 - 3. Full file backup 6.2 GB on c14 3.2 GHz single processor
470977 - takes 33 minutes transferring through a USB port to an
470978 - external 500 GB hard drive; and, on c16 takes 14 minutes
470979 - writing directly to the second 250 GB internal hard drive.
470981 - ..
470982 - 4. Interoperability seems 10 times faster opening files from
470983 - the SDS control environment with other applications,
470984 - reviewed below. ref SDS 0 MV5F
470986 - ..
470987 - 5. Responsiveness switching between tasks on the desktop is
470988 - much faster, again instantly now on c16, and can sometimes
470989 - take 15 - 30 seconds on c14 and c15.
470991 - ..
470992 - 6. Navigating SDS Subject Index for large accounts is much
470993 - faster.
470995 - ..
470996 - 7. Searching entire SDS record takes 2 minutes on c16 with
470997 - Intel core 2 quad QX9300 2.53 GHz 500 GB 7200 RPM, and same
470998 - search takes 3.4 minutes on c14 with single Intel processor
470999 - 3.2 GHz 80 GB 7200 RPM.
471001 - ..
471002 - 8. Right click on desktop opens Display Properties menu
471003 - instantly, much faster than 5 - 10 second delay before the
471004 - menu opens on c14, reported on 041118. ref SDS A2 VP5N
471006 - ..
471007 - 9. Ergonomics - keyboard for HP HDX 18t is very unproductive,
471008 - like all notebook computers. HP solves the problem with
471009 - support for an external keyboard with function keys that
471010 - enable efficient usability to optimize right/left brain
471011 - synergy using both hands to execute complementary commands,
471012 - per below. ref SDS 0 MV5F
471014 - ..
471015 - 10. Ergonomics - display 18.4" combined with high performance
471016 - processing and increased memory and disk capacity provides
471017 - significantly enhanced mobile computer use, and further
471018 - enables using a notebook computer as a desktop system.
471019 - This saves time and money transferring data between systems
471020 - for office and travel computing.
471022 - ..
471023 - 11. Enhanced ergonomics supported by HP HDX 18t, set out in
471024 - para 9 and 10, above, ref SDS 0 4F8J, makes Knowledge
471025 - Management an extremely powerful technology for the 21st
471026 - century, as explained in POIMS, ref OF 11 HO4H, especially
471027 - if the weight can be reduced by 10 - 15 pounds (weight of
471028 - battery and the power converter seem like targets of
471029 - opportunity).
471031 - ..
471032 - 12. Battery operations for c16 seem to last at least twice the
471033 - time that c15 runs on the battery, something less than 2
471034 - hours. After using c16 on the battery at Fry's for about
471035 - an hour, it only used 20% of the battery charge. It also
471036 - recharges quickly, and seems to hold the charge without
471037 - connection to external power supply for much longer than
471038 - c15. These are extremely useful features for continuity of
471039 - productivity. Getting the 2nd battery further extends
471040 - usability where there is no electrical power to perhaps 5 -
471041 - 6 hours, per procurement planning on 090623. ref SDS E0
471042 - 0V3P
471044 - [On 090804 1138 needed 2nd battery at Kaiser, and
471045 - discovered the battery is not charged. ref SDS G0 A44R
471047 - ..
471048 - 13. Windows XP 32-bit operating system on c16 with core 2 quad
471049 - QX9300 (2.53 GHz) processor takes 15 seconds to shut down,
471050 - and 80 seconds to power up to a point where work can
471051 - commence, including entering login password. XP on c14
471052 - which is a 3.2 GHz processor takes 73 seconds to shut down,
471053 - and 140 seconds to power up, including the login with a
471054 - password.
471056 - ..
471057 - 14. Windows 7 Ultimate (beta) takes 4.5 minutes to boot up in
471058 - dual boot mode, and much longer to shutdown, because there
471059 - is a glitch in the Explorer program playing a shutdown
471060 - sound, that isn't needed but won't shut down.
471062 - [On 090719 1850 this problem was temporarily fixed at
471063 - Fry's by setting all sounds to off.
Pending Issues Configure C16 HP HDX 18t
5304 - Problems
530501 - ..
530502 - Pending Issues Configure C16 HP HDX 18t
530504 - Follow up ref SDS A2 NU9N.
530506 - 1. Problems configuring text size, menus, and lists managing
530507 - computer resources for efficient ergonomics writing an accurate
530508 - record and quickly enough to be effective.
530510 - ..
530511 - Text for some types of menus is too small.
530513 - ..
530514 - Seems like a Microsoft Windows XP configuration issue, per
530515 - below. ref SDS 0 BK3A
530517 - ..
530518 - 2. Working in Windows XP on battery power suddenly there is loss
530519 - of access to work being performed, because a "horizontal box"
530520 - suddenly appears near the bottom middle of the screen, and with
530521 - a bell-like symbol at either end. This lasts for 10 seconds or
530522 - so and then goes away. Work can then resume; but, interruption
530523 - is repeated continuously and randomly every minute or so.
530525 - >> >>
530526 - >>>>==================>>>>
530527 - >> >>
530529 - ..
530530 - How can this bell-like thing be turned off? How does it get
530531 - turned on?
530533 - ..
530534 - 3. Access denied on c16 to a directory on c14 and 15 for example
530535 - on....
530537 - c://c14/e: sd 03
530538 - c://c15/e: sd 03
530540 - ...evidently because sharing is configured on...
530542 - c://c14/d: sd 03
530543 - c://c15/d: sd 03
530545 - ..
530546 - However, access is supported on c14 to the same directories
530547 - on...
530549 - c://c15/e: sd 03
530550 - c://c16/e: sd 03
530552 - ..
530553 - Similarly, access is supported on c15 to the same directories
530554 - on...
530556 - c://c14/e: sd 03
530557 - c://c16/e: sd 03
530559 - ..
530560 - How can access on c16 to c14 and c15 be configured to provide
530561 - the same productivity that c14 and c15 have for accessing
530562 - files on c16?
530564 - ..
530565 - 4. "Bluetooth" wireless mouse periodically just stops working.
530566 - The touchpad mouse works. Switching to another wireless using
530567 - a USB port works fine, and in 10 minutes or so, the "Bluetooth"
530568 - wireless mouse suddenly begins working again. Checking status
530569 - shows Bluetooth Connection Signal Strength "Too Weak."
530571 - ..
530572 - Only solution so far is to shut down the computer, and turn
530573 - power off on mouse. Power up the computer and the mouse. This
530574 - is not a practical approach to improving productivity.
530576 - ..
530577 - Later learned to turn Blue Ray (Bluetooth) feature off using
530578 - the finger sensor across the top of the computer above the row
530579 - of function keys, and turn the power off on the mouse. Then
530580 - power up Blue Ray (Bluetooth) by passing the finger back across
530581 - the sensor, and power up the mouse. This takes less than 30
530582 - seconds to restore mouse operation; but, is still a poor
530583 - solution to an unnecessary problem that periodically interrupst
530584 - work 3 or 4 times a day.
530586 - ..
530587 - 5. XP purchase to get a product key for activating the computer
530588 - with Microsoft. ref SDS 0 GE7H
530590 - ..
530591 - There seems to be a great many different versions of XP to buy.
530592 - What version is best for flexibility maintaining productivity?
530594 - ..
530595 - 6. Ekiga won't perform echo test, which means it will not run on
530596 - XP with Intel IDT Audio device driver on HP HDX 19t 64-bit
530597 - computer replacing Vista.
530599 - [On 090729 after configuring all device drivers, Ekiga
530600 - still not running correctly. ref SDS F9 KK8Y
530602 - ..
530603 - 7. Dual boot lists Windows 7 and default OS; if XP is not selected
530604 - within 10 seconds or so, then the CPU loads Windows 7, rather
530605 - than XP, and this then requires shutting down and starting
530606 - over, because cannot get Windows 7 to even boot. How can dual
530607 - boot be set to make XP the default, and prevent either OS from
530608 - executing until one or the other is affirmatively executed?
530610 - ..
530611 - 8. BIOS has no effective options for configuring the computer, per
530612 - below, ref SDS 0 ZS9G, unlike c14 which has extensive options
530613 - to make configurng the computer for working intelligently fast
530614 - and easy, reported on 041118 2124, ref SDS A2 QU4N
530616 - ..
530617 - 9. Windows 7 won't shut down, says Explorer is playing a sound
530618 - that won't stop.
530620 - ..
530621 - David at Fry's fixed this by turning off all sounds.
530623 - ..
530624 - 10. Windows 7 won't boot up, after turning sounds off in order
530625 - to solve the shut down problem.
Keyboard External Ergonomic Function Keys Efficient Usability Right
650401 - ..
650402 - 11. Keyboard Ergonomics I/O C16 Faster with Quad Processing
650403 - Interoprability Significantly Faster I/O Quad Processing
650405 - C16 quad processing I/O more responsive compared to single
650406 - processor c14. Interoperability opening the Microsoft IE web
650407 - browser version 6.0 to call an address on the local computer or
650408 - the Internet occurs instantly, about 10 times faster than c14,
650409 - single processor 3.2 GHz, per evaluation above. ref SDS 0 425J
650410 - If Microsoft can fix the defect in IE versions 7 and 8, this
650411 - may work even better.
650413 - ..
650414 - External keyboard provides ergonomic function keys. Efficient
650415 - usability, also cited above, ref SDS 0 4F8J, optimizes
650416 - right/left brain synergy with both hands executing
650417 - complementary commands, reported on 071222 0158. ref SDS D0
650418 - FO94 Productivity from efficient usability is explained in
650419 - POIMS. ref OF 13 6M5H
650421 - ..
650422 - C14 has significant I/O problems with multiple sessions of SDS
650423 - and other applications, which is a common use pattern, reported
650424 - on 041118 2124. ref SDS A2 MV5F
650426 - ..
650427 - This may be largely solved with multiple processors in the quad
650428 - QX9300 cpu, reported on 090702 1646. ref SDS E3 455M
650430 - ..
650431 - Performance factors adjusted on c14 were also considered for
650432 - c16, as follows...
650434 - Indexing............................. ref SDS 0 NG8O
650435 - Last access update................... ref SDS 0 S38I

CA0404 - Text Too Small Increase Size of Characters Change Font
CA0405 - Desktop Setup So Characters are Larger and Easier to Read
CA0407 - Follow up ref SDS A2 BK3A, ref SDS 47 BK3A.
CA0409 - C16 18.4" Flat Panel Display with high resolution is a big improvement
CA0410 - over c15. Initial settings using 1600 x 1080 was too small;
CA0411 - experimenting discovered that 1600 x 900 balances text size and SDS
CA0412 - window size that optimizes positioning of multiple sessions on the
CA0413 - desktop, essential for coordinated reporting, ref SDS 0 BK3A, to
CA0414 - create a well ordered record, explained on 890523. ref SDS 1 TP8O
CA0416 - ..
CA0417 - SDS requires efficient ergonomics enabled by setting text size
CA0418 - balanced with window size on the computer screen for constructing
CA0419 - records quickly and accuratley.
CA0421 - ..
CA0422 - Screen resolution and DPI are the only settings for controlling text
CA0423 - and window size for running SDS in the DOS NTVD environment. When SDS
CA0424 - is configured in a "folder" by right clicking on the desktop, the size
CA0425 - of text characters can be set in the XP application setup menu.
CA0427 - Choose Raster Fonts
CA0428 - Size set to 10 x 18
CA0430 - ..
CA0431 - This provides the best appearance and balance with window size.
CA0433 - ..
CA0434 - However, this alone is not necessarily sufficient, and so additional
CA0435 - configuration may be needed as follows...
CA0437 - ..
CA0438 - Size and readability of text in system menus and diagnostic reporting
CA0439 - such as directory listings, can be configured by right click on any
CA0440 - clear space on the computer screen. This opens...
CA0442 - ..
CA0443 - Display Properties... select...
CA0445 - Settings tab...
CA0447 - ..
CA0448 - Set video resolution to 1280x1024.
CA0450 - ..
CA0451 - The task bar, characters and system messages are a bit small. The
CA0452 - advantage of high resolution is being able to have multiple sessions
CA0453 - of SDS open with both readable using the 19" flat panel screen.
CA0455 - ..
CA0456 - On c14 today, it turned that the default resolution for the graphics
CA0457 - controller provided an ergonomically efficient text size balanced with
CA0458 - screen size, per above. ref SDS A2 BK3A, so no further configuration
CA0459 - was needed.
CA0461 - ..
CA0462 - Task Bar height and text size that enables ease of reading and use
CA0463 - without being obtrusive, worked well today with maximum screen
CA0464 - resolution 1280 x 1024 for the controller on c14.
CA0466 - ..
CA0467 - Reducing screen resolution can reduce clarity and cripsness of text,
CA0468 - while increasing resolution makes default characters too small to
CA0469 - read.
CA0471 - ..
CA0472 - If the chacter size is still too small.
CA0474 - Settings tab...select
CA0476 - Advanced
CA0478 - ..
CA0479 - "Advanced" opens a menu for changing DPI settings.
CA0481 - Changing from 96 DPI to 120 increases size of characters in display
CA0482 - screens, so that content is easier to see, than with smaller
CA0483 - character sizes. For example the listings of directories, files,
CA0484 - and diagnostics in the File Management system.
CA0486 - This does not seem to have any effect on the size of characters
CA0487 - in the SDS program displayed by the DOS NTVD feature of the XP
CA0488 - operating system.
CA0490 - ..
CA0491 - Other ways to change the font size in screens are...

CA0495 - Windows and buttons...
CA0497 - Windows Classic selction has been standard for SDS
CA0498 - the past 20 years.

CA0512 - If the configuration does not yield acceptable text size and
CA0513 - appearance, try changing the resolution....
CA0515 - Settings tab...select
CA0517 - Resolution of display
CA0519 - This is a last resort. Generally, it is desirable to run
CA0520 - the graphics at maximum resolution for the sharpest images,
CA0521 - including text characters. However, high resoluton
CA0522 - settings reduce the text to the smallest possible size, and
CA0523 - this makes text very difficult to read. Adjusting DPI, per
CA0524 - above, ref SDS A2 RO7F, increases text size, but sometimes
CA0525 - this causes thicker characters that do not look crisp and
CA0526 - clear, more like everything looks bold, rather than simply
CA0527 - bigger. Similarly, switching font from normal to large or
CA0528 - extra large, per above, ref SDS A2 RO8H, has similar
CA0529 - results.
CA0531 - ..
CA0532 - Reducing the resolution of the display from the maximum
CA0533 - supported by the graphics controller, has the effect of
CA0534 - providing larger text size with normal line thickness to
CA0535 - avoid the bold appearance. However, this also causes a
CA0536 - hazy appearance of the characters.
CA0538 - ..
CA0539 - Tried Increasing size of characters on the desktop by changing DPI
CA0540 - from 96 to 120, which is opened by...
CA0542 - ..
CA0543 - Right click on empty space on the screen to open a desktop menu.

CA0557 - ..
CA0558 - When this is changed from 96 to 120, the characters are bigger, but
CA0559 - seem less crisp, i.e., somewhat fuzzy. Another problem is that
CA0560 - opening multiple tasks on the desktop, which is a major requirement
CA0561 - for working "intelligently" with a "paperless office" metaphor, lacks
CA0562 - visual balance.
CA0564 - ..

ET0508 - reported on 041118 2124. ref SDS A2 UL7J

EY0416 - Input/Output Performance Did Not Implement
EY0418 - Follow up ref SDS A2 Z13G.
EY0420 - This improves performance of large file transfers. If this entry does
EY0421 - not appear in the registry, you will have to create a REG_DWORD value
EY0422 - called IoPageLockLimit. The data for this value is in number of
EY0423 - bytes, and defaults to Zero which equates to 512KB on machines that
EY0424 - have the value. Most people using this tweak have found maximum
EY0425 - performance in the 8 to 16 megabyte range, so you will have to play
EY0426 - around with the value to find the best performance. The value is
EY0427 - measured in bytes, so if you want, 12MB allocated, it's 12 * 1024 *
EY0428 - 1024, or 12582912. As with all these memory tweaks, you should only
EY0429 - use this if you have 256MB or more of RAM.

FE0416 - Click the Modify button to disable last access update, or click
FE0417 - the Restore Deault button to enable it. By default NTFS updates
FE0418 - the date and time stamp of the last access on directories whenever
FE0419 - it traverses the directory. For a large NTFS volume, this update
FE0420 - process can slow performance. By disabling this option, NTFS will
FE0421 - not record the last time a file was accessed. This can speed up
FE0422 - disk operations if applications are written to access many small
FE0423 - files very frequently as is found in many pseudo data base
FE0424 - applications (Modification time stamps will still be made).
FE0426 - ..
