Re: Request by Richard to return

there are no strong feelings one way or the other about whether this forum should continue to exist That's a simplification. My view is that this forum without your input has very few merit. With your input it is an excellent means to interact. See previous posts. Because you don't want to be moder...

On Wikipedia I've just read :"Cannabis can be used by smoking, vaporizing, within food, or as an extract"
So there is vape and then there is ... vape.

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 version 1.09a released

You've asked : "So I'd be interested to know ..............why you are sticking with BB4W rather than branching out into cross-platform BBC BASIC programming" I need the COMLIB library that comes with BB4W to be able to interact with Excel.

Re: Request by Richard to return

David, Richard, All, I have NEVER considered Richard's comments as abrasive. To the contrary I have always enjoyed his answers for their precision and, yes, also for the style. But if this is the way to get Richard back on board then let's do this. I look forward to see the forum come back to live a...

Structures are great

Hi to all, I'm not sure where to post this ... I just want to let people know that I finally did the effort to use structures in my programs and that this was a revelation. Big words but justified. I know Richard has made the effort to implement structures already some years ago. And, at the time, I...
