Re: Why OOP?

@ MichaelW Thank you that is something I can now add to my knowledge base. @ Marcov I have read some other posts and see why you have become so grumpy. I suggest that you don't get involved in such discussions or with someone who gets your goat. And one last point - I do not live in a microcosm. Men...

Re: Tiny SCREEN 7 and 13

@ Dodicat Somehow I did not click submit so my previous reply regarding the internet is missing. Here it is again: - My brother has been using Mandriva Powerpoint for two years without any problems. He has an ADSL (Same as me) and Mandriva set it up without any problems. PCLinuxOS as far as I rememb...

Re: The new website

Thanks Counting_Pine.
Actually with the Year, Month (- Dec as now indicated) and date it is okay. It is the USA format that is confusing especially when the day is 1 to 12.

Marcov
What has happened to you ?
Your language use is no longer the same as of old. It now borders on insults.

Never mind my question about the TIMER anomaly it belongs on another post so this is "Fin".

Re: The new website

It is a bit bright but I have some auto settings on my Flatron L1718S screen which by pressing a button includes Day Text, Night Text. These settings give me a darker background. Night Text gives me a gray background and I use it. What I would have liked to see is that the ISO standards for Time and...

Re: Why OOP?

This has become quite interesting. But I think so far everyone has actually missed the point which is that TIMER is the culprit in the benchmark. If you were to run the GOTO separately a number of times it will give different execution times and the same goes for the DO LOOP. That is why I said the ...

Re: Timing game just right

If I had the answer I would have done it ages ago. But the wheel has already been invented viz DOSBOX. On XP Pro Jazz Jackrabbit cannot find the extended memory and stops with an error and those old pinball games just say brrt which means they run at blinding speed and end almost immediately. Being ...

Re: Why OOP?

It is still a fact that many times it is not necessary to use a SUB or Function and in these and other cases where no stack space is involved it will execute faster, even if it is only micro- or milliseconds. I am not advocating that GOTO be used indiscrimately. No what I keep saying is use it wisel...

Re: Why OOP?

@ Marcov
So what you are saying is it is a case of sometimes it is true and other times not, to which I agree. Hence my saying it must be used wisely (and also only when necessary.)

Re: Why OOP?

Now that is the wise use of GOTO. Just for some joke. I think ASM is the best programming language and BASIC is the easiest. So people laugh your heads off and dont kick this old man too hard. There isn't so much meat on my bones as ten years ago so you may get bone splinters in your foot. OOP progr...

Re: Why OOP?

It is only spaghetti if not used wisely. Same as some other non BASIC programming that I have seen. Spaghetti is not BASIC's fault it is the Programmers mess up with convoluted programs irrespective of the language they write in. If all the other line numbers except those referenced by a GOSUB or GO...

Re: Why OOP?

Guess which one executes the fastest - using -lang FBlite. Run it a few times and you will see that even the timer doesn't know. TI!=timer Do A=A+1 Print "I am a Doof." Loop until A = 10 print timer - TI! A=0 TI!=Timer 100 PRINT "I AM A DOOF." A=A+1 if A=10 goto 210 200 GOTO 100 ...

Re: Tiny SCREEN 7 and 13

@ Counting_Pine The new face is quite nice. But the date is still not according to the ISO standard. Okay I have three Jpg images; BoxFront, BoxBack and Manual Front page - How do I post them here, pse ? Using Media Studio I selected the image, said copy: But when I use Img here there is nothing to ...

@ Counting_Pine The price was R299,00 (two-hundred and ninety-nine Rand). I had to save a couple of months before I could buy it. Considering that it cost me almost 15% of my netto monthly salary it was darn expensive. I haven't used my scanner in ages and I will have to load Corel Photo House to sc...

@ Counting_Pine I purchased QB4.5 in 1991. The receipt reads - date of purchase 1991-12-21. I still have the original packing - Box- it came in together with the Manual, and also the two original stiffies, (and a CD back-up I made) I guess I should have asked my question on the Linux Forum regarding...
