Mr. Langa, I have
adopted a new project called HOT Basic. It’s still a small project. It is aimed
at being an eventual free replacement for legacy Visual Basic and REALbasic. I will keep you posted with any updates. You can find the download from the downloads section at
http://www.doylepublishingutah.com/download.htm. Best regards, Brandon Doyle

I can’t help but reply to your recent reference to Ready-To-Go Linux. While
trying SimplyMepis (I’ve had a
lot of experience with it), check out KANOTIX which is a surprisingly powerful
distro and IMHO superior
to SimplyMepis. It’s a live CD but makes installation to HD very easy. It’s a
sleeper. To download the ISO and md5 files, go to
ftp.fbihome.de/linux/kanotix/ and click on KANOTIX-2005-03/
Hi Fred –
From a long-time subscriber, thanx for a wonderful newsletter. I hope my
workaround for a knotty problem will help some of your readers.
I hate to admit this, but I’ve encountered a problem with a computer of mine
that I haven’t been able to solve.
Hi Fred, There was a big red block on the
defrag graphic and the file could not be moved by the utility (OS is XP).
Dear Fred, As a long time reader
and subscriber of your newsletter I send thanks for all the knowledge I gather
from both you and your readers.
It’s something I’ve wished for many times: a list you can
copy/paste to a laptop or pda, or print and carry in your wallet, that contains
a careful selection of URLs for free, easy-to-use, but advanced web-based
route-planners/mappers. That way, no matter where you are, as long as you have access to
*any* PC— even in a library, kiosk, or coffee shop— you can get fast,
accurate, and free maps and directions for driving, walking, or even for oddball things
like making sure that cab drivers take you by a reasonable route rather than by
a needlessly expensive one.
I so thank you for what I found on my very first newsletter from you! The
http://safety.live.com came at a time when
I sorely need help with my ailing computer. I am certainly not a
user, but have tried to be responsible, as I learn. I have kept a firewall, run
virus scans regularly, as well as AdAware, Window Washer, defragmentation,
System Works, files deletion, etc.
Hi Fred, Maybe I’m asking the wrong question, or the right question
the wrong way, but there just doesn’t seem to be a solution to this problem.
