VSGX and Lightspeed Supported Beyond 2014

Some folks have been confused by CompuCom's announcement of the end of Wang VS hardware support at the end of 2014. Legacy VS hardware will no longer be supported. This will not affect current VSGX [New VS] users except those few who have remaining legacy devices attached to their VSGX. TVS issued a statement, "VSGX…

Accessing The VS Via Lightspeed From iPad

With the increasing use of iPads and other pad computing devices in the corporate environment, I want to pass on a solution from a Lightspeed customer for accessing the VS from an iPad. This solution utilizes Windows RDP and a terminal server. I would think that it could also be used to connect with desktop computers running Windows "Pro" versions or above via Remote Desktop.

VS_SendMail Available For Download

There have been some casual inquiries regarding sending emails from the VS and how and whether it was possible. TJ asked me to look into it back in April when I suggested that "it should be pretty easy." I had a bare-bones proof-of-concept application running in a day. I then turned that from a wholly hard-coded example into a usable example, sans documentation. Then, it was shelved for a while.

I recently picked it back up and tweaked it a little. I also added a bit…
