I don't know how but you seem to have been missing this thread: F19585?thread=265255&latest=1. Jim has reactivated some of the files on the old U-numbers we were looking at months ago... smiley - bigeyes

One side trip took me from U13 to Peta's journal on the hub to http://www.moxon.net/ where I noticed that the towel made it into the travel kit as clothing rather than toiletries. I may have a blob or two of it touring the world with Mark in tow. smiley - winkeye

At the moment I'm doing an Easter-ish one following a request earlier in the week. Of course I'm not sure that anyone is actually looking!

Re lurking on another of your threads: do you really not have a plan for higher ed.? Do you want any help/suggestions?

I'm sure that people do look at the page - quite a few people have found it now. smiley - biggrin

Right now I've got two or three different plans for the future, but I'm not sure which I'm going to ultimately choose - I'm doing a lot of research to decide which would be the best for me. Thanks a lot for offering to help, but I'm on top of it for now. smiley - smiley

I'd been feeling very left out of the latest dev server stuff having not actually been invited to the BBCi tester group when Peta first said I could play. So I'd rather missed all the action. Today I stopped sulking long enough to have a look again. I saw my nickname was causing trouble as intended smiley - winkeye but I also noticed a very important piece of information in one thread about which you should have told me. smiley - erm This was easily as significant as the offer Zaphod initially missed at The Restaurant smiley - yikes and it might be too late now. smiley - blue

smiley - erm I meant your fault about the MP203385 thing (in case you thought I was still sulking about the dev server). I've just realised it might have looked like I was commenting on the second part of your post.

I suspect you already know that life isn't fair. smiley - winkeye

Right now I'm still a bit shaky and wiped out after a little trip out to try and get some food. My typing keeps going all wrong. smiley - weird Dead alien. smiley - sadface I did manage to salvage some left over chocolate eggs though - despite officially missing easter. smiley - biggrinsmiley - choc

smiley - sadface Are you getting better overall? Surely the chocolate helped, even if nothing else did! smiley - biggrin

I thought I was a bit better - which is why I risked the trip in the first place. I was several days into the cunning backup plan but I knew I wasn't quite right yet. The after-effect merely proves this. However, I hadn't had any proper food for at least 10 days and even a smiley - dragon needs a roast smiley - tit or other animal every week or so. Lack of protein was going to start being a compromising factor to recovery in itself.

One of the reasons I knew I was a bit better was I'd managed to muster the enthusiasm and concentration to indulge in a bit of algebra and programming. Getting back to the fun stuff of the subject, I've hopelessly confused one of my compilers. It gave me a warning that some code had no effect which it then superciliously claims in the help file means that I've probably got a bug and should fix it. However, it executed the code anyway and it has just the right effect. It just wasn't seeing the bigger picture. Even funnier, when I tried some different inputs, it turned out all the lines which it said did nothing actually _were_ changing output numbers. Yet it was passing as OK the ones which happened _not_ to have any final effect that time because of choosing certain special inputs. I think it is the compiler which has a bug not my code. smiley - biggrin

Looking at that, I'd say that the compiler does have a bug, which you found in true Bugfinding spirit! smiley - biggrin
