I know for me I I don't care if my post is first or second or third or winds up on page 32. You know I just happy if I get replied to a post of mine. Because sometimes when I post something that is very important to all of us such as the Dropbox issue, I get crickets. Nada. Nobody reply's which tells me nobody cares.
For example I mentioned that the program I'm writing is basically a new IDE that will run on top of the existing one, where it will have a lot of features including a more powerful editor and eventually in version four or five it will have the ability to debug your code with break points and run and step through line by line, you'll even watch your variables change values, all in real-time. I have a proof of concept on part of this to see if it would even work that's working right now. I will make a great addition to my new IDE, but I have posted this like three times, I even asked for comments and I get crickets. Like nobody cares. So you see it's impossible for me to dedicate much time working on this if no one thinks it's a benefit. So I take my time and I'll write it for myself, and if anybody wants it they going to get the .COD file instead of getting the source code like I would have normally done because nobody cares.
So Henko, while are you complaining about people posting over your posts, think about how you would feel when you write something that's important or great and you have a solution and nobody responds. Then I think you can complain about how people post over your posts.
Anyway I can't wait download this game which I'm gonna do right now and play it.
I thank you very much for and appreciate all the effort you put in to writing this game, as I've enjoyed the previous versions and cannot wait to see what you put in the final version. Your work is much appreciated by me and for all the suggestions and comments that are made by others on your game.
I've always said in posts and emails to you and even in private to others that I think your coding is top notch, and I am always looking forward to the next program that you post. If I wasn't doing so much work in techBASIC for both my clients and as one of the beta testers, I'd be writing more SmartBASIC programs.
And I do have a couple that I'm writing in TechBASIC first (only because without any more updates from Mr. K., I need to use a language that is actively being updated. Then when they are done, I can convert them to SmartBASIC.
I have one I think you'll and many will like, but due to the work I have and my disability acting up from time to time, I do not want to waste my time if I pitch a project and no one cares about it.
Anyway, I wanted you to see the other side of posting when you ask for or expect any replies and Simon and Garfunkel keep singing the "sounds of Silence" song!
Let me get to the task of playing the new version of Risk, as I have been writing a research paper (will be posted on LinkedIn and on my blog) and I am writing code for what I think is a huge issue I found in TechBASIC that your Hex Viewer program pointed it out to me.

I look every day for ones I haven't seen before, and assume that you do too. So it is unlikely we will miss a new one.
I just ran the iConvert 4 Alpha version, and want to let Dutchman know what I have discovered so far. That, unfortunately, will again bump your thread, Henk, but I am impatient to pass on the information before I forget it. At my age, that can happen in a flash!
But you can always restore your game to first again by adding a comment to it.
I know the feeling. I waited a couple of days with posting the final version of Risk until the communications about iConvert came into a pause. But like the previous version, it was pushed down within 1 or 2 timezones (luckily we have Dutchman to investigate the exact time lapses).
You are right that there are no rules. It is not my intention to create them. Should not be necessary with 3 or 4 regulars. Annyhow i will wait with "new" postings until the previous subject is at least 24 timezones old. Sorry i brought this up.
