Re: Getting JSON from Google Sheets with unicode chars

hexadecimal number assuming all start with \u and are 4 chars

Re: Sluggish if screen has higher ppi

Why are you surprised?

Higher PPI means that the processor(s) has to work harder.

In my school, with teenagers who have higher PPI (Pimples Per Inch) I have to work
much harder than with the prepubescent bunch. 8)

Re: Accessing Google Sheets in Standalone – Inclusions needed?

That's kinda groovy: but the original OP was asking about "sucking" something directly from an open Google sheet into something in Livecode without any intermediate steps. Also: that lot will start grabbing your moolah before you are halfway done. - 2bucks.jpg - Note my name is "right there." 8) - F...

Re: Will Livecode Work After Brexit

Most of my "memes" here are meant to be funny. This one is nothing of the sort: - pugUgly.jpg - I've said some fairly offensive things about Kevin Miller in my time, (and I'm sure he's said some fairly offensive things about me, but, because either he or his advisors have manners and tact (something...

Re: Accessing Google Sheets in Standalone – Inclusions needed?

asking for trouble
I dunno: I seem to have spent most of my life either getting into trouble
or causing other people trouble: so messing around with stuff coming out
of spreadsheets just feels like business as usual. 8)

Re: Multimedia Player?

The computers in my school 90% of the time are running small LC standalones for EFL kiddos, and the only other thing they ever run is LiveCode, I have a load of 32-bit boxes as old as 15 years with as little as 512 MB RAM doing just exactly what is needed with Xubuntu. My "problem" is that when Xubu...

Re: Multimedia Player?

My friendly second-hand bloke has just got a truck-load of these in store:

85 leva = $48

which makes my question largely theoretical.

Although, I am still tempted, should I have a few spare crinklies left at the end of the month . . .

How what works?

Can you explain things a bit more, please?

Re: Accessing Google Sheets in Standalone – Inclusions needed?

CSV is a horrible format
So it seems.

However, you don't need to apologise as I do not hold you personally responsible for the CSV format. :D

Re: Multimedia Player?

This multimedia player comes with some version of Android installed, so, presumably, one could use it as a sort of extended tablet, especially if one could get a pointing device such as a mouse, and a keyboard to work with it. I suppose one could make non-standard sized Android standalones to run on...
