    Eric I don't think that I could specifically respond to your post without violating forum guidelines - something I try to avoid. I would imagine the specifics in your post are also too theological for here as well. I was merely commenting that trying to break someone's faith (whether I think it's misplaced or not) is not an I approach I would choose

  • Re: The Future of Logos 4

    [quote user="JH"]This is not trivial - good security is very hard to get right. Just calling a series of encryption algorithms does not a secure system make. There is a fundamental misunderstanding out there that wrapping some encryption around data will fix the "privacy problem". Cryptography can be effective for some things, but it isn't a cure-all

  • Re: Security and Privacy Concern about Logos4 Phonning Home

    I just want to clarify my position, as my name recently was mentioned by Matthew: I think Logos4's entire Internet strategy and its implementation of that strategy is flawed. Flawed. Not broken. My viewpoint is based on these observations: Logos/Bob thinks 'the cloud is the future'. I think this is an overstatement and I wouldn't base my current or

  • Re: Security and Privacy Concern about Logos4 Phonning Home

    I guess everyone's mileage varies, but, for me, the disabling of Logos's Internet features doesn't 'cripple' it. It restricts it, sure, but my main purpose for using it - Bible study, remains relatively unaffected. Logos4 in that scenario, for me, is at about the same level of effectiveness as Logos3. But with a much nicer interface. Actually, my current

    I'll second Jim's thanks! The new CopyBibleVerses is excellent - it turns the API from being a 'novelty feature' into something really useful. I've already started writing an external note-taking application that uses this feature. Excellent. One improvement would be to be able to specify which bible it works with - having to change the 'Favorite Bible

    Hi. I use Logos on my Samsung NC10. To get better performance I: Upgraded it to 2gb RAM Replaced the hard disk with a 500GB 7200 rpm disk.

  • Re: LOGOS 4 COM API - Make more datatypes work with DataTypes.GetDataType

    Paul The simple Bible DataType returns the Apocrapha as well. BibleNA27 returns the NT, as expected. However, most of the bible resources just have the type 'Bible' and so I can't easily query Logos for which books are in which particular Bible. I'm also uncertain as to how to ask a resource directly what its resource type is - a method GetDataType

    I'm using the API to get the names of all Bible books as follows (Delphi code) BibleData := LogosApp.DataTypes.GetDataType('Bible').Details as LogosBibleDataTypeDetails; I can then use FirstBook and NextBook to get a list of all books and I then drill into this to get the chapters for each book and verses for each chapter. In this way I can build a
