Well, I've never heard of a "Hybrid" programmer before... ;)

I suppose Basic using lots of SYS, WAIT and USR calls, or including binary character set might be called hybrid. This has me wondering, if I would find a Basic or Kernel routine I call by hand (e.g. PLOT routine to reposition cursor), does it make my Basic program an hybrid, or is this only when I write my own ML routine to call from inside Basic?

I just said "hybrid" to cover any minute possibility Boray could think of to explain why his programs don't have a proper place. Who knows? Maybe he's using a Super Expander Cart or something for his programs.

Or write them in Forth, Pascal, Logo or whatever other odd language ever existed for the VIC (Comal maybe?). I dunno how many of those can compile executables outside their development environment though.

Err, ok.. neither of those are Basic per definition. Maybe Comal could be said to be a Basic extention, but not really.

Ooooh! Add little screenshots. I love collections from a single author. I made my own.

Please make these all PRGs. And what ever happened to Susan? :D

Thanks Robert, the Pizza game is very nice (a bit too fast though).
I have a friend whose name is Robert in Sacramento, CA, and he recently opened a pizzeria - so when I play I imagine him delivering pizzas... :D

A wonderful rose for Susan, did it work? :wink:

Thanks all ... I will convert all binaries to a more suitable PRG format this weekend. I added the screenshots as advised and a QuikVIC PDF to describe how to use that programmer's utility.

BTW, the rose DID work back then, and Susan and I married in August 1986. The marriage did not last, but we made a beautiful daughter in Erin.

Way to make a splash. Thanks for all your contributions.
In the end it will be as if nothing ever happened.
