Re: Rotating a BMP image

Hi Richard,

Does that need a parallel change to the GetProcAddress block?

Best wishes,

Hi Richard,

Re: Request by Richard to return

Hi Richard (and all),

Fair enough, but I could pull together a much longer list of positive, supportive, posts, expressing how much they value your contribution to the forum.

Best wishes,

Re: Self aware computers project - written in BBC Basic, help needed!

If it is true, surely there are potentially lots of uses for it - but surely it would also mean we could never trust a computer to do what is told again? If my understanding is correct, Pete, you think that the physical computer (the box of bits of metal and plastic) is hearing the music, even thoug...

Re: Compare struct speed vs array - is it a fair way to compare?

Hi Ivan, DIM() can be used as a function, to return (in this case) the size of one dimension of an array: try DIM s$(5,4) PRINT DIM(s$(),1) PRINT DIM(s$(),2) Since in BBC BASIC when you dimension an array so size n you get elements from 0 to n, the code you posted would loop through each element of ...

Please can I ask people to make sure they keep the tone moderate in the discussion? Some posts are getting a little close to being turned down. I wonder if this philosophical discussion has gone as far as is useful? Perhaps it would be better to restrict further discussion on this topic to one of co...

Re: Request by Richard to return

Hi Folks, In the absence of loud screams, I've put everyone except administrators on moderation, for a trial period. I'm hoping that will include me when I'm not logged in as an administrator. [Edit: yes, it does. For this post only I've approved it myself]. Feel free to comment by post/private mess...

Re: Request by Richard to return

Hi Folks, Richard has found it unacceptable being the only person moderated on the forum, and has decided not to post under those conditions. He has also said that he would find it impossible to return to the situation where all posts are unmoderated, even with closer moderator oversight. He wishes ...
