Whatever happened to...?
« on: October 10, 2018, 11:33:31 PM »
Well, we know E.K.Virtanen followed Peter Verhas over to Java...

But what happened to these other former members of bp.org that never made their way here...

  • Thomas Larsen
  • Konaexpress (used to frequent the Bacon forum)
  • LanceGary (also seen previously at the BB4W and Liberty BASIC forums)
  • SteveA (BluntAxe BASIC author)
  • Derek (mod at bp.org)

If you know, let us know...add your own MIAs...I'll add more as I remember them...

Btw B+ I haven't forgotten the high/low game in C. I have a program written out but it has a bug and I haven't had time to fix it (I'm procrastinating doing this whilst preparing for a presentation at work tomorrow  ;D)

Hi Richey,

I remember a Synergy (spelling?) who was going to write a tutorial for SmallBASIC.

No hurry's with Hi Lo, I am not your teacher, I will give you a B+ now ;)

I am wondering what cvirus is up to these days. I see him hanging out here allot but not posting.

Are you, cvirus, still with Java Script? (along with SdlBasic) or have you found another interesting pl?

If I remember correctly, Markus Hoffman (the author of X-11 Basic) was active on basicprogramming forum. His username was kollo. And AIR was always happy to talk Python and other languages.

... which doesn't make Peter a traitor of the BASIC cause: :)

The language is a "no freak out" language, so you can put the programming possibility into the hands of users who would not ever touch Python, Groovy or some other programming language.

but what this have with EK... i think nothing !

That's correct, who on earth and where E.K.Virtanen is, I don't know or really care.

My message was not about "EK" but about the other subject in the sentence Peter Verhas, a well known language developer and not just a "varhas from GIT" whatever that's supposed to mean. I was just making people aware of him and his another first-class BASIC product just in case somebody, e.g. an "awerel from BP", might've missed it.

Hi Richey,

Are you referring to Syzygy? Yes, what happened to him?

...and eHitam (Aurel once called him 'Banna'  :o Whatever happened to him and his plans for Royal BASIC  ;D)

More blasts from the past when I remember them...

How about this...two for the price of one  ;D E K Virtanen interviewing SteveA

On the other side ..EK was admin/owner of bp.org

I saw Verhas mentioned and thought it would be worthwhile to note he's still a BASIC-er despite his having moved over to Java. OK I agree it was probably not the best thread to mention it but there's enough flood in almost every topic here, so I thought my very short message wouldn't be too much to spoil the overall picture. :)
