Re: Welsh Meters

He he, nice one guys. But be careful - we know to our cost in Wales that Google translate is responsible for producing some of the worst and most confusing road signs here in Wales, in fact there's a whole Facebook group dedicated to Arwyddion Cymraeg Gwael (Poor Welsh Signs) where the words in a se...

I see I'm starting to convert Germans to Welsh now too. Clearly Ralf learned more Welsh over here than I thought :lol:

Re: Welsh Meters

Hi, Does this mean I have Welsh ancestors ? Styv Pwll. Common mistake - y in Welsh is not generally pronounced like i or e in English, the sound is more like "uhh" (with silent h). So more likely Stif Pwll (single f in Welsh pronounced like v in English, while double f (ff) like f in Engl...

BMP 1.04

Thanks to Bob Spelten, an update of the BMP graphics converter is now available from the Graphics page on my website. Version 1.04 fixes a problem with conversion of Mode 33 images on Q68 (and probably Q40/Q60 too), which could result in incorrect colour conversion due to incorrect interpretation of...

Re: Q-dock

I got overtaken by events trying to look at this, sorry. The code for picking a job within Q-Dock is basically just a compiled PTOP statement, with the job name passed in a string array element: ch% = 0 : PTOP #ch%,jobname$(dock_no%,icon_no%) As I am having difficulty reproducing the problem, can yo...

Re: Welsh Meters

When I was travelling to Wales long time ago, I was very astonished, that there were at least city names with just a few letters, e.g. "B A N G O R" :D :D Not so sure about short city names, Ralf, but here are some Welsh place names with no (English) vowels in them: Bwlch Bryn Crymych Cwm...

Re: Welsh Meters

Secret attempt of Welsh world domination Well, having successfully infiltrated Welsh into the electricity meters of England, not all Welsh attempts at new things are as successful. For example, this first Welsh attempt at getting into space was not exactly successful: diljump.jpg More successful wa...

Re: SCREEN1 = SYSVAR @ JSROM

If you can define a shape as a blob, theres an inbuilt routine to fill it with any colour or texture, in any mode. I dont know what limitations the routine has re size, memory or efficiency, but it might be worth investigating. May be of interest - Silvester on here wrote a piece of code for SMSQ/E...
