You could try BASIN
Windows editior with emulator built in..Should solve the keyboard issue.

Might be an issue with the emulator and the foreign keyboard config?

Torinak emualtor online is good too. Just use 128k mode

Excellent! I hope you enjoy the book - you can use with real 128k or emulator :)

Excellent stuff!
Hmm, wondering if they gave Mr Smith a Next Dev Kit - might entice him to delve :)

Which library did you find it listed with?

Hi SF,

How does this differ to the older version of the borderless code - I used the older one and it worked - a bit of a delay between window and borderless (less 1 sec) but otherwise same.

Is this a borderless requirement for win 10 or specific platforms - glb 16?

Nice one!!

I too am using GLB for some business side projects...here is the start of my simple grid data viewer - but your GUI project looks very nice!

What are you using for your database backend?

No worries - I tried convert a long time ago to epub format for another service - but it was a mess - and the platform didn't generate any sales...plus the epub format had the downside of being DRM free and could be pirated all over the place.

So just stuck with kindle - i may look at kobo again - very hesitant to put on unsecured platforms.

That book looks great, is there any way of buying it that isn't on Amazon? Prefferably as an ebook.

There is kindle version of both my books :)

Hi Guys

An article I wrote last week about 80s BASIC - and how I rediscovered it is trending as a top story on Hacker News :)

Maaad! But great!
