Re: What kind of BBC BASIC programmer are you?

It is disappointing to see such low numbers being comfortable with using the BB4W/BBCSDL extensions, since they are what I have put the most effort into during the past 20 years I would have liked to participated in that poll.

Or maybe Firefox or some other browser. They would have to host this as you are doing, but technica...

Re: StarDot forum

I have seen that, it's a bit of a bear pit and one I want no part of, and quite frankly it's quite disgusting at times. It is unfortunate, to get verification of such territorial online alpha male attacks. It only adds negative feelings and now I understand more why a moderator is needed in such fo...

Re: StarDot forum

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

giving you an option for deploying programs that you've written and tested conventionally on a desktop platform And that is why it's so attractive. People only need ONE link and no need to download files and manage them. Its simple. I love the interactive site advantage it gives you. (aside from ne...

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

Ok so how did you arrange this? Is this with your web site using port forwarding or did you somehow arran...

Re: In-browser BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0

https://www.bbcbasic.co.uk/bbcsdl/wasm/bbcsdl.html?dir=/usr&load=<myURL> So with such a link would I use a Dropbox link for my code? Would One Drive link work? It appears that this runs in my browser but does your site use up more band width for the above link? It seems to be hosting the sand box a...
