  1. Thanks Doc and all. Well it turns out it was PEBCAK issue. Two unrelated issues had me thinking there was a problem with the LIST/ENTER procedure. The 1st issue, is that some of the LISTed files would cause XLESS to spaz out. The 2nd issue was when I tried to ENTER them into BASIC it seemed to get stuck so I would hit reset and only end up with a partial program brought in. I thought there was something strange about the files which were causing these problems. As it turns out, the only real problem I think is that XLESS has issues displaying some text files for some reason. The Last Word has no problems with them and even the regular version of LESS has no issues either after I checked that. The getting "stuck" entering the LISTed files in was an incorrect assumption on my part. It was never stuck, it was just taking quite a bit longer than I expected. I am able to repeatedly successfully ENTER in any of the files now if I just wait long enough for it to finish. For those interested about the XLESS issue, here is some info: SDX 4.9c (beta) XLESS (unknown version) All running under Altirra 3.20t9, which in turn is running under Wine x64 3.20 under Debian Stretch Linux. I should probably go to the SDX area & get into the XLESS thing there.
  2. Thanks guys for weighing in. I'll get some more detail in here. In the mean time, I really have to express my monumental gratitude to you FJC for bringing to my attention that preemptive solution! 🤔 I believe you could only have done better if you had offered the solution of retyping everything in manually and saving tokenized. 🤣 In all seriousness though, I do probably have some backups somewhere but still I really would like to use LISTed files for my source code in any case. I'll put together a bit more detail and put it forth in another post here.
  3. I was wondering the same, at least on the mental side. I cannot imagine how anyone in the business of sales, and in their right mind, treat customers like he does. I'm with McLaneinc; he should sell to another interested party (if he can). I'm guessing it would have to be someone who is willing to do it out of the passion for the hobby as I don't see much prospect for profit. Maybe I'm wrong and there is more profit potential than I realize. I'm positive no one would want to lose money, but a break even or small profit plus love of the hobby might be enough for someone.
  4. So... being a fan of human readable over tokenized source code files, I got the idea in my head that I should convert my tokenized Atari BASIC and BASIC-XL files into text based ones. I did so on about a dozen files by loading in the tokenized version, and then LISTing them out to a text version. I popped them open in The Last Word and they looked real good. So I went ahead and deleted the binary tokenized versions. Oopsy; rather than just verify the listed files came out good, I should have also verified that the would ENTER back in okay. Yes indeed. I am having trouble being able to successfully ENTER them back in. I suspect it has something to do with control code characters. I'm guessing that the ENTER command behaves just as if the user were typing from the keyboard. The problem with that of course is that the user would need to prepend control codes with the escape key to avoid them being interpreted literally, which I doubt the ENTER facility bothers to do. Anyway, does anyone know what the issue might be? Am I onto something or might it be something else? Solutions?
  5. And people can let everyone else know about his extremely customer unfriendly ways too. Honestly, I would urge everyone not to patronize someone who chooses those "ways." Then, he would need to change his "ways" to sell a damn thing. What? He's the only source for something? How bad does anyone really need something to put up with that shit? I'm sure the answer varies, but I know I wouldn't.
  6. Beyond just answering the question of if he should be believed; I evaluate it to conclude the 1st statement is false, and the 2nd one is true. The condition that fits is that he sometimes lies and sometimes tells the truth. So the 2nd statement is true that the 1st statement is false.
  7. In order to believe him, what he has been said must be true. To be true, it must be true in its entirety. The two statements are logically contradictory and therefore cannot both be true. Thus, I find it him unbelievable. I don't understand why that would be considered puzzling.
  8. It looks like besides his math skills being poor, his logic is in the tank too. It's impossible to buy something that is free.
  9. I'm still scratching my head about when at a month in, he said wasting a month of his precious time; right before he said it should just take 1 week to arrive. Maybe my math isn't so good but wouldn't that technically be wasting about 3 weeks of time then? Also, I wonder how he survives sitting a month in front of his computer screen clicking update every minute. What does one do in all that time to eat, sleep, pee, etc? I mean, that's a whole month of his precious time!
  10. Suggestion: Taking your time at a pace that's comfortable to you, set about converting those logins to ones "local" to the various sites you visit. Once you have done so, you have just removed that particular barrier to putting FB in your rear-view.
  11. I recently dropped a meme I created in a different topic thread that I think has some relevance to this one. Here's the link. Cheers.
  12. Maybe they should do like Microsoft (well for some things), Firefox, Altira, SDX and countless others do; have an opt in public beta test so that ugliness can be removed or corrected before publishing to prime time.
  13. Is FB friendly to posting links to content outside of FB? For example, could you post stuff here, YouTube, or wherever and then drop links to it in your FB content?
  14. Anything that allows anyone to view without a membership commitment works for me. Thanks for bringing this site up as I wasn't aware of it before.
