|Hooray for people. An email whining about a certain behaviour of Motepad. It also says "And you know I'd really like it to be a real 16 bit program. Did you know they load from disk TRWICE as fast and run twice as fast too?" Ahem. And finally, some lovely irony; "You people make other mad by not listening to them and then you expect something in return."
|Only the *paying* customer is always right, of course. My response to Mr TRWICE was this:|
I'll begin by assuming you're talking about Motepad, which
you didn't specify, which was rather inept.
The bug you describe is an aspect of the Windows richedit
common control, and thus outside my jurisdiction.

>fast and run twice as fast too?
Sure. That sounds like complete nonsense.
>You people make other mad by not listening to them and
>then you expect something in return.
What do I expect in return? You're the one making demands.
Maybe if I ever got something in return (other than demands)
I might give a crap about your whining. Use some other
software if you don't like mine.
|Maybe if you weren't such a lollyhead people would actually give you something in return.|
Isn't it clear? 16 bit mode is the way of the future.
For tomorrow i would like you to write a script that enables twrice quad speed loading of ALL applications. It must be smaller than 127 bytes. Thankyou. And it must be free. And it must be open source. And i would like to get a free book for downloading it.
|Sardoth makes some very valid points. I think you should listen to this input. Only thing missing of course is that it must run on Lunix, BSDM, BeOF 5, and the Apple IIC. Natively as a single binary. I will of course send you a dead haddock to assist you in your enterprising.|
|Why can't you people listen to me??! Make my legs 16 bit! I'd like them to run trwice as fast.|
...I really wish that I could type out that Six Million Dollar Man sound effect better. Maybe if I was 16 bit!
|Kernighan and Ritchie's fault, at least according to 'Scotland Yard cybercops'.|
|Cybercops, eh? Do they mean the ones that pretend to be police on-line, but are really obese 50-something pedophiles?|
|Yes He Is A Lollyhead|
|P.S. I Found You Sardoth|
