Hi Martin

After posting recently that you should ignore requests for improvements to Templot I very tentatively put forward the following.

I have twice recently been wanting to show off your wonderful program to others via my laptop but on both of those occasions I had shut down Templot the previous time I had used it. As I was in a webless location I was unable to do so. I use DesignSpark for PCB design and that requires web access at startup but if there is no web it will allow starts for up to 30 days from the last web access. Is it possible that something similar could be included in Templot either limited to a number of days or number of restarts?

Thanks and thanks for allowing us access to this wonderful program.

Fraser

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Post your questions on the forum where everyone can see them and add helpful replies.
Hi Fraser,

I'm reluctant to do that because it is easily defeated by changing the clock on the system. Likewise changing settings for the number of restarts.

I'm absolutely determined that there should be no way to run a version of Templot which is not the current update version.

Do you have an Android phone? Or someone else nearby? If you set it up as a portable wi-fi hotspot you can get internet access on your laptop from it. Templot downloads only a few hundred bytes so will have negligible effect on your data quota. Once Templot is started you can turn the phone off.

from Settings, tap Wireless & networks > More

tap Tethering & portable hotspot

tap Portable Wi-Fi hotspot

Follow the instructions to set it up for the first time. It will give you a wi-fi login and password to use on the laptop.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Martin

I appreciate your concern regarding users and old versions. I have now set up my mobile as a wifi hotspot and tested it out and all worked as it should do. That was something I had been meaning to do for a long time but, like many things, it was pushed aside by all the other more interesting things to do. I'm a tight type so don't very often use my mobile data unless it's really necessary but I'll make the exception with Templot when I need to.

Thanks for the very clear instructions as ever.

Fraser
