Windows 98 and a Faulty Program



  • Perhaps this program should be looked at:



    It appeared when I was using Logicator 2004 at School on a Research Machines PLC Network from 1996! It kept flashing up when I did such trivial things as move the help window.



  • The subject line contains a redundancy.

    When did this happen? "Logicator 2004" implies a couple of years ago, at most. Does your school still have Win 98 machines? That still work? (Hah, hah, I know...)



  • "Economatics Logicator"?  Who names these things?  Sounds
    like either a clueless hillbilly or a Professor Frink special (glaven!).










  • It also reminds me of something Mr. Burns might call a computer.



  • Well, I checked their site and apparently they still advertise it as Windows 98 compatible.  Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be as exciting as the name suggests:

    PIC-Logicator software provides a full range of control operations: switching
    outputs, sequences, timing, counting, using feedback from digital and analogue
    sensors, sub-systems, logical and mathematical functions.  Interrupts
    provide parallel processing.

    Commands are also included to make use of specialist features of a PIC, such as accessing the chips's EEPROM memory; putting the chip into low-power mode; outputting information to a serial device such as a printer or LCD screen.

    The current version of PIC-Logicator is Version 2 (PIC-Logicator 2005) and is for use on Windows 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP.



  • I can't help but to find the name "Economatics Logicator" funny. What's next? "Communidynamics Tesselator"? "Pyrovertex Transdimensional Analyser Pro"?

    This happened about 3 weeks ago.

    I feel sorry for the person that has to keep those machines up and available. Also, if it's in a lab setting, that lessens my surprise somewhat.
