That's the only way I know how to describe what my Asus EEE PC netbook has been doing the last week or so when I start Logos 4.  Once it's booted up, the L4 display  maximizes, then reduces to upper right corner of my monitor, maximizes again, reduces to upper left corner of monitor, maximizes, reduces to lower left corner of monitor, maximizes yet again, reduces to lower right corner, and then maximizes one last time so that it occupies the entire monitor and is ready to be used.  (Rereading that, I've made it all sound clear as mud.)  The whole process I described takes maybe five seconds, and then L4 works perfectly for me  As I said, it's only been doing this the last week or so.  Has anyone else seen this phenomenon?  It's more a curiosity that a nuisance -- a quirky thing that I can live with.  After all, my wife has to put up with one or two quirks of mine.  Wink

It may have something to do with different layouts that you saved. Mine would do this too. It seemed to be cycling through my various layouts that I had saved before settling on the last desktop instance. Once I deleted all my layouts, and stuck with just one, then that stopped.

Your "four corners" might be something else, though.

Now, about wives putting up with their husbands...uh, never mind, I plead the fifth! Zip it!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

A bit of a hijack, I know...

I'm curious about the overall performance/experience you are seeing from Logos4 on a netbook.  Which EEE PC model are you using?

  I'm especially curious if someone has the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1201N ... would love to know if that dual core / ION netbook would get me through my logos withdrawal while I'm on business trips; had considered an itouch, but would love to have full programmatic functionality/full resources should I need to do more than read.

Ward,

You might want to check the conversation on this thread: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/10315.aspx for some information about L4 on an ION setup.

From my experience, an ION could work in a pinch as a secondary, portable system but not for complex studies/searches.

Eric, thanks for the pointer--it was very helpful...surprised I didn't find that post in my search, but it was exactly what I was looking for.

Ward:  I've got an Asus EEE PC 1101HAB.  I  upgraded RAM to 2 Gs, and overall I'm pleased with the performance of Logos 4 on it.  I know that there's a trade-off between speed and portability, and the 11.6 inch monitor is not going to have anywhere near the display capabilities of a desktop system or a laptop.  However, I like being able to carry my Logos 4 library (Scholar's Silver, plus a lot of resources that I've purchased over the years) with me just about anywhere.  Portability is a big plus for me.

Thanks to tips that have been posted on these forums, I've got my study guides tweaked to run faster; exegetical takes about the longest to search and bring up information.  However, it's still much faster than having to pull hard copies of reference/language books of my shelves and look up things that way.  I do have another piece of bible/exegetical software (let the reader understand) on my netbook, but I've hardly used it since I've learned how to use L4.  I know the netbook experience would be woefully inadequate for a power user, and maybe for most Logosphiles, but for me it's great.  I wouldn't go back to L3; in fact today I deleted it from my Asus.  L3's still on my desktop computer in case I need it -- but the only thing I've done with it lately  is to load some recently purchased L3 discs so I can sync them to L4 and download them onto my netbook. 

Anecdotal, I know, but this computer unsophisticate is happy.

Sorry for the longwinded response.  Blessings.

This problem *may* be fixed in 4.0b.  I had a similar weird thing happen when I started Logos, a little screen would come up, then it would run over and relocate, then expand to right size.  Having read this thread, I realized that on 4.0b beta 6, which I just installed a few days ago, it does not happen. I have even added a very large dual-monitor layout to my list of layouts, and I see nothing abnormal at all in the screen startup.
