Re: Android Linux

Thanks guys for all the info. But being in my 80s and strictly an amateur never having been employed in any IT much of you r posts I regret I cannot understand. Which is why I and most of my friends take the easy way out and are happy to pay a little for an EBay disk. That way if it fails to work we...

Re: Android Linux

It does not seem clear in this forum whether like some there are any restrictions to posting URL addresses. If not I will post the URLs to below. There are CDs available on EBay and the files to download for free from China of an android-x86 OS for all PCs and Laptops etc. This seems very important ...

Re: Android Linux

Thanks all my work at http://www.sigord.co.uk//SubmitsLinux/LinuxSoftware.htm was produced online at the site. I have never had a warning from AVG there are any problems. Ever since I crashed a PC with Ubuntu I have been very wary of installing any extra software to a Linux especially if it involves...

Re: Android Linux

What do you think this is then at http://fbc.deltalabs.de/ if not a very nice FB to Debian Linux online compiler to save you bother an risk of inserting a lot of UNIX code in a Linux?

But beware of using it too often or it might treat you as trouble until your IP address get changed after a few days.

Android Linux

I have managed to produce a number of free programs or Apps if you prefer on my site for various Debian Linux even Puppy in some cases. Admittedly due to my limited knowledge of any Linux I always use the online compiler kindly provided. I am now wondering if there is any chance of being able to com...

FB Linux for Mac

Has anyone had any success in getting FB compiled for Ubuntu & Mint to work with a Mac, even employing special software for the Mac? There is a large number in a local Arts and Media Group who only use the Mac.

FB Linux complier

Can anyone please tell my I see this silly warning shown at http://www.sigord.co.uk//Temp/LinuxFB.jpg when I try to use the excellent Linux compiler at http://fbc.deltalabs.de/. I never see such warning on any other site, and I run a fully paid up AVG on both my PCs, also remove unwanted Cookies, an...

Programming Methods

As some already know I am a 81 year old purely Amateur, using a variety of Basics for over 30 years. So at my time of life I am not really interested in learning more about programing, than I need to create a working program. So would someone please explain to me why anyone would want to go to all t...

DOS Printout

Forgive me for delving into the ancient past for wanting to use DOS for printouts. But I have an ancient HP Deskjet that still works OK but no one can provide me with a driver for it for Win 7. Probably to try to force me to buy a new printer. I can printout text using the simple text Generic driver...

Re: Progamming in UK Schools

I agree with Basic Coder 2. The beauty of most forms of BASIC is it largely uses plain English easy to understand rather than the gobbledygook of such as C, VB an JavaScript. Therefore as you can see on my site programs written in BBC Basic and the BASICA years ago can fairly easily be converted to ...

Re: Progamming in UK Schools

Never having been employed in IT, though I have dabbled in a little Pascal, C, even Forth I concentrate on various Basic as you can see from my site. I have always maintained it does not matter what language you use so long as it does the job. How many who visit my site or the distributors kindly ho...

Re: Progamming in UK Schools

What amuses me is some of the stupid subjects some are allowed to study at University etc. of no use to employers what so ever. Also having a degree in anything will not necessarily help you get a job, as sometimes it can scare the wits out of an incompetent employer terrified your ideas might show ...

Re: Progamming in UK Schools

It seems to me so many especially the young get fooled into believing anything new such as in IT, MUST be an improvement. Notice the craze to replace smartphones etc. for new models. They ignore the problems of ever increasing populations along with accompanying unemployment, hence the need to provi...

Re: Strange error

I must thank MrSwiss for upgrading my opening code to this thread. I am always very pleased and somewhat proud to see any one such as a professional programmer take the trouble to improve any of my Amateurish efforts. However what I do find a little annoying is as happened awhile ago here someone co...
