A completely different forum! This thread is about the copy of the old BB4W forum, which was hosted at David Williams's site and became inaccessible when it disappeared recently. You are referring to the copy of the old BBC BASIC forum, which is hosted at bbcbasic.co.uk and has remained unaffected.RNBW wrote: ↑Sun 19 Jun 2022, 10:14I use the following link on my Android tablet to access the old forum:

I can't remember where I picked this up from, but it works.
Unless your memory is even worse than mine (barely possible!) you will recall that before conforums.com closed down there were two forums dedicated to 'my' versions of BBC BASIC. There was the BB4W forum, supporting exclusively BBC BASIC for Windows and administered by DDRM, and the BBC BASIC forum supporting (primarily) BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 and administered by me.
When conforums.com announced their closure, with very little warning, we captured both forums using a web-scraping tool and uploaded them. Links were added to the front page of this forum (where they still are) for accessing them. You would be advised to use those links rather than any you have separately cached, in case they need to change again.
Oh. You certainly should be able to search, as that was all set up at the time they were uploaded. Having just checked, the search of the old BBC BASIC forum (not the subject of this thread) seems to be working fine. I searched for sophie and it returned these hits:Unfortunately you can't carry out a physical search within the site, but you can step between the topics.

26 Feb 2018 ... As I had researched long ago, Sophie Wilson did create BBC BASIC (the language) , but you created BBC BASIC for Windows and BBCSDL and all ... 1 Mar 2018 ... I had some exchanges with Sophie over the enhancements she proposed to BBC ... work quite differently from those in Sophie's ARM BASIC.
