Do you enjoy being abused by idiots, having to listen to sob stories,
bitching and whinging and all of those cockroach activities that you
would normally associate with a clapped out old Usenet group ?

If the answer is YES just keep reading this endless pile of trash
until it changes your mind. If alternately you write basic code to do
something useful, earn your living as a programmer and actually deal
with human being who know something and are happy to share it around
by helping other people, join the PowerBASIC peer support forum and
enjoy the difference.

Think of all the irritation, abuse and stupidity that you will miss
out on by actually having to deal with human beings who have
real_human_being_names[tm] and don't slink around in places like
Usenet making a nuisance of themselves.

Is it wrong of me that I saw that and thought it was a C array?

Auric,

How about this,

tm equ <4>
mov eax, DWORD PTR real_human_being_names[tm]

Keep reading folks if you need more convincing that a safe sensibly
managed peer support forum is the way to go. Read some of the more
recnt posts to see why.

Just to change the topic slightly so that an unsuspecting PowerBASIC
user does not get sucked into this mire.

Not everyone has their mom to cry to; as you do.

At least you will find the free speech in here.

Huh! A comment is all it takes to be banned from the Powerbasic's
forum. Not to mention if this comment expresses a user's legitim
frustration.

You surely stands forward as being one of Bob Zale's obedient poodle's.
That's why I regard your statement as being a statement on behalf of the
Powerbasic Inc, company. Bob Zale must be proud of you by now.

Olav,

Now you have me worried. :)

Never happened to me but then I am not afraid to use my real name.
Post by Olav

Yes you are right, every idiot that wants to make a pest of themselves
is free to do so here. A very good reason for anyone who actually
writes PowerBASIC to join their peer forum.

I am not good looking enough to be a poodle but in any case the
PowerBASIC vendor never needed one.

Read the rules and you have answered your question, use your real name
like everyone else or don't join.

A blonde is a better solution for such problems, brunette if you are
desperate and then you can relate to people on the internet like a
human being, not skulking around with a phony name spewing garbage
when you get caught.

I have been a member of the PowerBASIC peer forum for about 10 years
and I have not seen what you report and I have seen and been in some
solid arguments there. I hear what you say but 10 years experience
says different.

On the other hand there is several stories here on the usenet which tells it
diffently from your experience.

Abe Lincoln produce the right response to this a long time ago. Its
the relationship between SOME and ALL. When it comes to a hand count,
those who are satisfied with the peer support forum outnumber the
detractors by a massive margin.

As is always the case, if you don't like the rules, don't join the
forum.

Yeah, and we all know if it is on the internets it must be true........

Might I suggest one of the many fine ALTERNATE compilers available.
Kind of strange to get this wrapped up in all of this.
