There's no such thing as a stupid question, but they're the easiest to answer.

    About Me
    Electronics, Electrical and Industrial Software Design Engineer. (Retired)
    I built my first computer in 1978 (Built here means:- soldering all the components onto the [then commercially available] printed circuit board). At that time I designed and made all the additions to this machine, which was programmed in BASIC and in Machine code, later I installed an EPROM which enabled me to programme in Assembly Language. Programmes were stored using a cassette tape recorder, initially at 110 baud, but with a bit of thought I got this up to 8,000 baud quite reliably.
    Since about the end of í93 Iíve programmed in Visual Basic Pro. Version 3.0 and still do if I need a small utility because I have the expertise and still have all the documentation and because surprisingly, it still works with XP Pro. These days because of the restriction of a maximum of 8 characters in a file name in V3; Iím trying to come to grips with Visual Studio 2008 but with only the inbuilt and online help, itís definitely a challenge.
