Re: Snapshot as Gif

Well . . . for starters I suggest you install something like GIMP

https://www.gimp.org/

import your JPEG image into GIMP and Export it in GIF format . . .

This should tell you if it has something to do with the way your Windows OS (and you
omitted to say which one) handles GIF images.

Re: Haiku OS

I've always thought it was going somewhere As I am "one lucky person" insofar as I have a "free" 32-bit laptop that is currently surplus to requirements I shall try installing Haiku OS on it next weekend so that I can see what a 'real' computer (i.e. not some virtualised setup) is like running the ...

Ideally . . . this stack should be built up to provide all the capabilities available with this commercial software package: http://www.athel.com/colloc.html This is silly: " Educational Price.

Obviously, because I'm a "sadistic old sausage" I will NOT include all the code in the

"shakes" and "wiggles"

This:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   if fld "TEKST" contains "shakes" & "wiggles" then
      put "YUP" into fld "REZ"
   else 
   put "NOPE" into fld "REZ"
   end if
end mouseUp
ALWAYS returns "NOPE" even when fld "TEKST" contains:

"She shakes and wiggles across the stage like a snake."

This is a problem.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

It's PR and Marketing Livecode should have an intern who sits, poised, like a wolf ready to strike, at every goofy remark about how "effing awful" it is that Hypercard died (was killed?) and has no descendants . . . . . . but, as should be clear by now, LiveCode appears to think everyone is going t...
