BIKLOG

Summary: My Freeware bicycling log software for the Psion

BIKLOG is a program made for bicyclists who like to keep track of their bicycle rides during time. It is not meant to be used during the ride as a cycle computer but as an extension of it to store the cycle computer data and other data and as a tool to analyse the bicycle rides over time. 

There are two versions , Biklog3 for the series 3x and Biklog5 for the Series 5 and Revo (Plus)/Mako. The last version is also suited for the Series 7 or netBook, but only in the last version 3.2 the colour capabilities of these last two machines has been fully implemented. Both versions has provisions for up to 4 different bicycles and up to 5 ride evenements. 

With some renaming of the definitions of the type of bicycles used and riding type, it may be used even for thriathletes by renaming the bicycle names in "swimming", "biking", and "running" and adapting the bicycle ride names into appropriate terms like "training", "race", "intervals" etc. 

Features:

SAILLOG

Summary: My Freeware sailling log software for the Psion

SAILLOG is a small utility primarily intended to track your personal sailing experience, based on the Royal Yachting Asscociation´s paper logbooks and qualification requirements. If you own your own boat, SAILLOG will also allow you to log the cumulative miles and engine hours of your boat, and gives you a reminder when service intervals arise. If you charter your boat to a third party, these details can also be logged in the vessel record without affecting your personal sailing totals. 


Features:

How to use the EPOC emulator

netbook





1. Introduction

I used the Epoc Emulator in the last years up to now primarily for development of my psion programs like Biklog5 and Saillog. Besides the regular Epoc emulator suited for the series 5xx machines I also have installed the Revo emulator, which is essentially a package of special files installed over a separate EPOC emulator file structure.


Nowadays, since my psion machines (revo, series 5 and Netbook, are ageing and becoming more instable due to screen cable or battery problems, I am using more a more the Epoc emulator on my windows PC, while for outside home use I have bought a Asus EEEPC 901 netbook running Ubuntu. The EPOC emulator I run under the WINE environment


In the remaining of this page I will try to explain how to obtain and install the emumlator on your PC or Netbook under windows or under Linux.



2. How to obtain

(A) The regular SYMBIAN OS V5 OPL emulator can be obtained from the Teklogix website:
http://www.psionteklogix.com/teknet/pdk/netpad-pdk/SDKS/opl.zip


Note that you have to registrate yourself (Free!) before you can have access to different SDK's containing the emulator. Although it is mentioned that it is meant for the Netpad, you can use it also for the Series5 or netbook machines. Choose the OPL version if you also wants to use it for writing OPL programs. It is about 26.8 Mb in size!


You can also choose the SYMBIAN OS V5 SDK for Java if you don't want to develop OPL programs but want to have the smallest download package (12 MB). The latter you can download directly from (after registry): http://www.psionteklogix.com/teknet/pdk/netpad-pdk/SDKS/java.zip


(B) You can download it directly from my website here:

Download Symbian OS V5 SDK {OPL_V5.zip} for the SYMBIAN OS V5 SDK files

and download this file {netbookemul.zip} for the customatisation of your Netbook emulator.

It also includes the WINS versions of several OPX files, courtesy of Chris Handley. Additionally it contains some alternative screen images from Damian Walker, which I found at the PDAStreet Psion Forum.


3. How to install

Installing the Psion ER5 SDK:


On a windows PC or on a netbook under windows:

  1. extract all the files in the downloaded ZIP file in a temporarily directory
  2. Execute the setup file, setup.exe, and if you are not interested in writing your own OPL programs, don't install the PERL files
  3. Files will be installed to the X:\epoc32\ directory (Where X is the driveletter where you installed the ER5 emulator)
  4. If you are not interested in writing OPL files you can delete the directories: Aiftools, Alleppo and Epoc32
  5. You can also delete the folder SYSDOC if you don't want to have the documentation files on the emulator and the OPL programming language


On a Linux PC or netbook:

  1. install WINE first, if WINE is not present
  2. extract all the files in the downloaded ZIP file in a temporarily directory in the drive-c directory under the .wine directory
  3. Execute the setup file, setup.exe, under WINE and if you are not interested in writing your own OPL programs, don't install the PERL files
  4. Files will be installed to the /home/user/.wine/drive_c\directory
  5. If you are not interested in writing OPL files you can delete the directories: Aiftools, Alleppo and Epoc32
  6. You can also delete the folder SYSDOC if you don't want to have the documentation files on the emulator and the OPL programming language

To customize the PSION ER5 emulator to your machine please do:

  1. Install the Netbookemul.zip ZIP file in the directory where the EPOC32 directory has been installed.
  2. Open this file and unzip the contensts into the X:\EPOC32\ directory, overwriting any files that are already in that directory.
    Ensure that the unzip program's "Path information" or "Use folders" option is checked, so that the files get copied into the correct subdirectories.

4. How to use In the Epoc/tools/ directory you will find 9 batch files to start up the Emulator, each controlling their own screen configuration. They are together with the details of the configuration: 

 

name file screen width x screen height (internal) window width x window height Remarks image
m320_200.bat 320 x 200 342 x 222  
m480_160.bat 480 x 160 504 x 184  
m640_240 640 x 240 666 x 266  
m640_320 640 x 320 675 x 346  
m640_480 640 x 480 666 x 506 minimalistic, but best suited for 8.9 " screen
e32-sys.bat      
e32-vga.bat      
e32-lrg.bat 800 x 600 944 x 719  
mcustom.bat 800 x 600 944 x 719 best suited for large screen monitor

 ATMOS

Summary: My Freeware Atmos is a small utility allowing you to calculate the relationships between geometric altitude, and pressure, density and temperature of the (1976) Standard Atmosphere. 
Singular output is possible as function of altitude, relative density or relative pressure (to sealevel) 

or in a tabular format as function of the start altitude level, the number of steps and stepsize: 

Each parameter may be defined in SI or English units and can be stored.

For both the Series 3 and Series 5 is a different version: respectively: ATMOS3 and ATMOS5 

History :
 

  • Version 2.2 (23-12-02] Conversions between equivalent and true airspeed added + small bug fixes. 
  • Version 2.1 (22-07-02] Now also suitable for the Revo (Plus) and Mako! 
  • Version 2.0 (08-11-99] Ported for the Series 5 
  • Version 1.1 (22-02-99) Better event handling and extended help function. 
  • Version 1.0 (02-01-99) Original version.
