Hi Henk,

hopefully, yours are in better condition that mine were. Out of over 200 floppies - originals, backup copies and backups of my drives, only 12 were actually usable after a few years! :(

Welcome to the forum, you'll have fun here.


Cheers,

Re: Lemon 64 and Lemon Amiga sites down after being attacked

Oh dear, oh dear! I can reveal how they did it or free! SQL Injection. Basically, the input "forms" don't to any validation and just pass the entered data into a SQL statement that they build up from scratch. Then they execute it. This is seriously bad and I would advise against ever doing...

Re: OPD: Computer One floppy interface recreation.

I know it's just the photo, but it looks like someone has gone to a lot of trouble, to fill in all the through holes with solder!

Nice board.

Re: I'm looking for a S*BASIC app, possibly by Tim Swenson!

I would like to give Tim a vote of thanks for such an excellent application. It's a shame we can only give him a single vote of thanks each! All these years I've been writing S*BASIC code and having to mess with renumbering and huge gaps between the line numbers "just in case". And as for...

God! I used to love that program. It was a "religious" watch back in the 1960s. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Here we are folks, I've created a GitHub repository, with Tim's blessings, and uploaded versions 2.7.2 (Tim's most recent version), as well as my changes for versions 2.7.2b, 2.7.2c and 2.7.2d. The URL is https://github.com/SinclairQL/StructuredSuperBasic and the various executable files are at http...

Thanks Tim.

I know I've said it before, and no doubt I will again, but I love this software. I only wish I'd tried it out much much sooner!

Re: I'm looking for a S*BASIC app, possibly by Tim Swenson!

Norman, Thanks for picking up the torch on SSB and releasing a new version. Still nice to see others interested in SSB. Hi Tim, no problem. I was a bit worried that you might object! I was wondering if you would have any objections to putting the source up on the Sinclair QL GitHub? If you have no ...

Re: I'm looking for a S*BASIC app, possibly by Tim Swenson!

Morning all,

attached are the sources and executable for SSB version 2.7.2d which has had the Spanish language added as per the previous post from @badaman.
