When I think back to first learning OOP, I'm always reminded of the old joke: (Visitor) "Excuse me, could you tell me the way into town?" - (Local Person) "Oooh; if I was going there, I wouldn't start from here!". The familiar-looking syntax made it hard for me to see that OOP is a different way even to think about code in the abstract sense. I made it hard for Ruby to be my friend because I wanted to be the same control-freak micro-manager that ASM had taught me to be! :lol:

Haha! I remember when a mysterious thing called "Python 0.9b" was passed around mailboxes, and everyone thought "wth?" I couldn't create even the tiniest working code, not because of that obscure language, but because of my lack of understanding!
Without reference to the joke, I think as a guy who started his journey with "10 PRINT 'HALLO' 20 GOTO 10" and getting used to commands like PEEK and POKE, I've come a long, long way. :lol:

But ya know ... it kinda made me happy to hear you say this.

Or should I say .... it encourages me to hear you say that.

[and I do remember that time playing with my Commadore SX-64, and then later with GFA-Basic on the Atari-ST].

Those were the daze I could put the time in [as a self taught hobbyist] --- no Internet ... just magazines, books.

Was never really great at it, but wow, did it pull me in deep ... and I actually made useful Programs.

Like most here, I do hope for the day FlowStone evolves to the next version.

Just hope you Guys are still here !!!

Wish these Special Tutorials, Instruction, Learning session could be placed in some form of Sticky that would be easily available and expand over time.

You Guys are invaluable to this Forum. !! 8-)
