This note draws together and extends two recent results on Diophantine approximation and Hausdorff dimension. The first, by Hinokuma and Shiga [12], considers the oscillating error function |sin q|/qr rather than the strictly decreasing function q~T of Jarnik's theorem. The second is Rynne's extension [17] to systems of linear forms of Borosh and Fraenkel's paper [3] on restricted Diophantine approximation with real numbers. Rynne's result will be extended to a class of general error functions and applied to obtain a more general form of [12] in which the error function is any positive function.
