Both Auric__ and Hutch are cowards.
Both wrote some tripe that I am not going to respond to.

It seems the neither are working in the software industry.

Since 2007, I have been a software engineer working at the Advanced
Engineering Center at Ford. I write software for engineers. It seems
that the hateful people in this group, want to disparage Michigan. I
have seen good people at Ford lose there jobs due to this economy.
People who did not cause the problems in the economy. So, make fun of
ME all you want, but you lower yourself a notch, when you attack
others without cause.

That said, I still use PowerBasic for one thing and one thing only. To
create DLLs. No, I do not have stock or other financial benefits from
RealBasic, PureBasic or KBasic. But I do use them. So, it seems I am
one of the few people who can comment on PowerBasic compared to other
versions of Basic.

I am convinced that neither Auric__ or Hutch make any money in the
software industry nor can they accept my challenge.

With respect to the torrent.
Clearly Hutch did not bother to download the PowerBasic torrent. Had
he, he would have verified that there are no viruses in the PowerBaisc
downloads. As such, Hutch clearly is LYING.

Which brings us to an interesting idea. Examining the PowerBasic
license, I notice that anyone could set-up a web site with the
compiler. Such that any user could submit a text file with the
PowerBaisc keywords, and the web site would email the person back an
EXE or DLL.

There is no legal restriction placed such that a user is prohibited
from selling a service where that sellers offers to compile a user's
code. With a website, a legal buyer of PowerBasic could offer to
compile code for others via an automated website.

If PowerBasic is any good, users who have been kicked out by
BobTheSnob, would be willing to pay a fee for complication services.
If PowerBasic is dead, no one would be interested. By offering the
service FREE for a while, users could set the price! This would also
fill the need for a Demo of PowerBasic - a try before you buy.

Let's make that the challenge.

Eric

P.S. I command you to insult me more.

Whatever.

I've never claimed to work in the software industry. I've written software
for small local companies (a *small* legal assistance firm, a door
manufacturer, a mailbox store, a few others), and my software has *never*
been written for resale.

Everything I've ever written that wasn't written for someone else I released
as GPL'd freeware, so the sales figures for all of my software is $0. You
win. Whatever.

He's lying because he chose not to download something illegally?

You first.

Awe diddums,

Things must be getting thin on the ground up in Michigan if you have
to keep trying this scam out. Now you know the deal, if you want
someone to show you how to write code, go to RENT A CODER and for some
lousy pittance you could learn something.
I do not have stock or other financial benefits from RealBasic, PureBasic or KBasic. But I do use them.
These true confessions tell us so much more. You are clearly an agent
for at least one of these vendors/suppliers and leave them fuly liable
for the actions you take on their behalf, risky behaviour for a
budding Clarence Darrow but even worse, it would appear "prima facia"
that you are attempting to practice law as an advocate for these
vendors that you are acting as an agent for.

Now RE: The PowerBASIC downloads you speak about, sad to say I own a
fully legitimate and registered copy of every version of PowerBASIC so
I have no point in downloading risky out of date junk when I already
own all of the current and past versions. None the less you have just
told us that YOU have donloaded these illegal copies which seems to be
a foolish thing for a budding Clarence Darrow to do. Now come on Eric,
surely the economic climate up in Michigan is not so bad that you
cannot affort to own a fully registered version of PowerBASIC.

Now as I credit you as having a bit more sense than our friend who
comes in here with his mouth in overdrive and DICK in hand, why the
PHUK would you be promoting downloading illegal copies of software ?

Well here is the distinction Eric, while you work in the automotive
industry, there are those among us who have been working in the
software industry for over 20 years.

Now just to prove that I have nothing against MOTOWN, I own a 1972 OZ
classic with an American made Cleveland Ford V8 in it and a couple of
years ago I bought an American made Lincoln wire feed welder to do
some of the repairs on it and remember I am an Australian.
