Re: iConvert 5.3

I know you guys are doing a ton of work on this program, as I'm doing a lot of work to get the astronomy and cosmology physics stuff done to add to this program, but this version is asking for a loader.gift file and I have no idea where to find it. It never appeared in any other version that I'm awa...

Re: Internet Check

Hi Dutchman, I need to caution you about using an IP address for checking a specific website. The issue comes with whether or not the person who set up the webserver has set up one IP address for his machine, and uses the Domain Name Server (DNS) to resolve where the request goes. You see this more ...

Re: iConvert 5.sb

Hey Ricardo, That sounds like a great idea, and I was going to mention that currently changes very frequently throughout the day. Are used to do trading in currency along time ago, including seven day trading. But one thing I would like to suggest is that you put the year and you're an MMDDHHMM tag....

Re: iConvert 5.sb

I would like to pose another suggestion about the absence of the currency website at the time of requesting it. Instead of showing that it is not available, I think that if you already have a prior file that the program uses the older file so long as it is not more than five days old. The time limit...

Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Sounds great. Sent you private email as what I put in has proprietary information and describes how what I'm writing works. Send a copy to Ton as I don't have his email.

Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Great. I'll start working on the simpler conversations as soon as I can. However, to calculate certain Lagrange Points requires both the distance and the mass of each object. (This would calculate the point between two objects where the pull of gravity is equal). Unless there is a way to put more th...

Re: Game of Risk, final version

I hope you reconsider as I value, like many, your contributions. I will let you know when I have an initial implementation of one AI strategy. I know many ways to play, so I do hope that when I send you the 2-3 that I outline, I hope to hear about other strategy, like a friend of mine made sure he t...

Re: Screen size- Running in App versus Basic

I'm catching up on this post. When coding in SWIFT or Objective-C, the code that draws the circle is not SWIFT or C Code. It is a UIKit code! You will find he same code in both languages. What SmartBASIC probably did was it imported UIKit inside the interpreter and a Statememt created that is conver...

Re: iConvert 4 alpha

Since I am writing something similar in TechBASIC for the fields of Astronomy, Cosmology, Astrobiology, Rocket Science, Physics and Quantum Mechanics for a university professor to give to his students (the copy I am writing also displays the formula as it is a teaching tool) I can take the core code...
