    Re: Some thoughts on VB6 forum

    Yeah, I didn't go there because I wanted to be more concise, but you can write crap code in any language. I doubt that easier languages are also easier to write bad code in. They might be more...
  2. Re: what about Spread32?it's can open *.xls file like excel

    I removed a series of personal attacks/bickering. I think everybody has their opinions, and they are probably known to one another.

    Still, that leaves an awful lot of posts, and I STILL have no...
  3. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    Yeah, you've convinced me of that, too. I rather feel that EU protests are more rational. They're certainly more rational than the anti-vax protests in Idaho....but most anything is more rational...
  4. Re: [RESOLVED] Corona virus, China major city lockdowns, etc.

    That's not true. Trump refused to wear masks, while Biden has always been completely in favor. They have virtually no authority over whether the general population wears masks, though. People can...

    That quote you posted from the reddit just reinforces my suspicion about why C syntax is preferred: It's exclusionary.

    That quote talks about "making it easier to understand." OH NO!! Horrors!...

    Re: Information on a Dropped...Something

    To the first question, no. We're far too informal. Too informal for that, and probably too informal in general.

    We think somebody did something bad, and we think we know who, but they aren't...

    They are over here. Hard core, too.


    You are putting everybody not in the bag when you say there are no anti-vaxxers. We could meet halfway and say that there are people half in the bag.

    So...you don't believe in the virus, you don't believe in the vaccines, and now you don't believe in anti-vaxxers? Do you believe in yourself?

    Perhaps, but in this case, we have very few options for the other side. We can't ask them to install anything, so a desktop app is out of the question. Asking them to re-enter all their data into...

    Re: Some thoughts on VB6 forum

    I might prefer C# to VB if the case sensitivity and semicolons went away.

    The semicolons are just an annoyance of mine. They really make no difference, and in some languages (such as JS, which...

    Try being ambitious on a TRS-80 Level 1 with 4K RAM.
