Re: card scanner/ reciept printer usb

We have no idea, the only way to find out is to try it. As it's USB - you'll most likely need to use the APRINT application (included with DHPOS, more details in the manual).

Re: DHPOS SYSTEM FOR SALE

I like that they also stole Dale's caption for the photo... "Actual photos of actual computers actually running DH POS in actual stores" from http://www.dhpos.com/posphoto.htm

Edit: actually, I just noticed one of the photos on Dale's page is for the company that is "selling" DHPOS.

Re: Why I am not on Facebook.

You can close your account afterwards, however they've been (and continue to be) under fire for poor privacy policies - which (unless they've recently changed) were pretty much "we own everything you put on our site, and we don't promise to delete it if you decide to leave" as far as I understand.

Re: Receipt Printer

Tampa POS, given that this thread is about four years old, I should hope they've found a printer by now.

Re: Speech

Euggh, talking things at the register (aside from the sales assistant) aren't a good idea in my experience. When I worked in retail, when our scales malfunctioned, they spoke in a booming American (NCR) voice "SCALE FAIL!" and then proceed to vocally output their configuration. The only time I could...

Both links work fine for me, although there's not much to see when you get there.

Re: Barcode generating software

For the most basic needs - all you really need is a word processor (i.e. Microsoft Word or OpenOffice) and a barcode font, perhaps the most common is the freeware Code39 font from IDAutomation: http://www.idautomation.com/fonts/free/ There are instructions on that page, but basically you just set up...

Re: Change nickname?

You mean your username? Click the "user control panel" option, then the "profile" tab and you can change your username under "edit account settings".

riors,

Dale will get back to you when he has time, there's no need to bump the thread, he's not watching the forums 24/7 every day.

Re: 20 removed from this forum

RollerBall, New users do have to be approved by an administrator, we haven't had open registration enabled for a long time, I think many of these that Dale is removing are users (or bots) that registered and never posted and I've squashed several that registered, were approved and then posted spam. ...

Re: To tax, or not to tax... entire sale with a single key

Well, no, you've not necessarily yet selected a payment option. Pressing "+" subtotals the sale and begins the process of finishing it off, you've rung everything up and are going to accept tender from the customer - so in my mind, it seems the obvious place to be able to make the entire sale tax ex...

Re: Test version 7.04x

It would be insanely difficult to make two lots of text different sizes on the same screen in QBASIC/DOS, and hardly worth the effort. It's only possible to show the large total that appears at the end of a sale because Dale spent a lot of time writing code to draw those numbers manually, he'd have ...

Re: transfer stock table

I'm wondering if they want to transfer a stock table from another POS system (not DHPOS) into DHPOS.
