Suntan Special

Blonde Guy has been working all summer on the Suntan Special, a system configuration tool designed to save hours of your time.

What is Suntan Special?

Suntan Special creates a well configured workstation or server by installing a sequence of fixes, patches, drivers and applications to your OS/2 or eComStation computer.

Each fix, driver or application is installed by running the setup program. If possible, the setup program is run in unattended mode, otherwise instructions are provided as needed. Suntan Special can reboot the system as needed and continue running when the reboot is complete.

When you are satisfied with the sequence you have made to create the workstation or server you need, you can run it each time you need another server or workstation.

Suntan Special is written in REXX. It comes with source code, so you may change the way an application is installed to suit your needs. As new applications or new versions of existing applications become available, you may download them from the Blonde Guy website and add them to your Suntan Special installation.

Suntan Special versions

Suntan Special is available in the following versions, to support the kind of OS/2 installation you have chosen. In addition, the developer tools CD can be added to any platform. Click on one of the following editions to view the Suntan Special User's Guide.

The Suntan Special for eComStation edition supports eCS versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.2 media refresh. The Developer's Tools edition contains compilers and other programs of interest to developers.

Suntan Special contains no software, apart from Suntan Special itself, that cannot be freely downloaded from the internet. It includes no licenses for any software, apart from that for Suntan Special.

I wrote a short history of how and why I wrote Suntan Special. The Story of Suntan Special.
