Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

Ok, thanks for making it clearer (I was thinking of something else but I'll check for it later). I just can't believe right now that I ignored lightings for so long. And now it starts becoming my new passionata :D Perhaps you are thinking about light sources that provide more of a daylight 'quality...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

Really encouraging that you in US are making it mandatory. This means that this will probably follow here in the old Europe! Actually, most of the US tends to run behind Europe on energy efficiency. The US energy codes are based on the IECC (International Energy Conservation Code.) The IECC is also...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

I've been doing lighting design professionally for over 30 years. During that time, the rules of thumb for lighting in a workspace (specifically workstation) environment has changed quite a bit. Hi Linuxbob, thanks for your feedback. Did you never install some of those ligthing that are supposed to...

Re: Are you happy with your office's lightings?

Linuxbob sounds like a person who would not tolerate windows in any shape or form. Who works in the terminal gloom with a bare flickering light bulb hanging by a yellowish cable, and a moth circling around. Actually, I've had to work in a lot of 'mushroom farm' places, and I detest them. The more w...

I've been doing lighting design professionally for over 30 years. During that time, the rules of thumb for lighting in a workspace (specifically workstation) environment has changed quite a bit. In the 80s and 90s, the emphasis was on moderate light levels at the desk surface but serious control of ...

Re: The Birth of BASIC.

That's an excellent example. This is something I wrote in the mid 80's for a TRS-80 Model 4 using one of the BASIC compilers. Not quite as structured as yours, but not spaghetti either. 'DOLLAR POKER REPEATABILITY CALCULATOR 'FOR PRO-ENHCOMP ON TRS-80 MODEL 4 'PURPOSE: THIS PROGRAM WILL RUN A SERIES...

Re: The Birth of BASIC.

It is a mystery to me how that "Basic is not a proper programming language" urban legend survived all these years. In my experience, a lot of it comes from programmer snobbery: "there is only one way to do programming, and BASIC isn't it because it's a toy language." Spaghetti c...

Re: The Birth of BASIC.

I would rather think it was lack of structured programming. Basic was later heavily modified for structured programming (e.g. sub's with parameters like QB got instead of just gosub <linenr>), and removed the need for goto/gosub in most common scenario. [/quote] IMHO, the worst impediments to the o...

Re: Select Case operating like the C 'switch'

The problem is you're proposing creating a new FB-like language. It certainly wouldn't be FB, and it wouldn't be able to compile FB code if select/case were changed to behave like the C switch statement. Possibly FB could add a switch statement separate from select, but this would simply add comple...

Re: Select Case operating like the C 'switch'

[quote="grindstone"]There's no need for any modification, multiple selections are already possible: I understand that. The project I am working on requires me to do things with a CASE selection, and then perform additional tasks on a subset of the same selection. I can do it with an IF blo...

Select Case operating like the C 'switch'

Question: how difficult would it be to modify Select Case to act like the C 'switch' keyword, allowing multiple selections in the same Select block? I am working on a project that would be easier to implement with a C-like implementation, but I can accomplish the task without it. Thanks in advance!

I agree. I have a good friend here in Ohio who is from Yorkshire, and she is awesome.
