Multitasking Shell Command

What you need is a checksum or possibly a way to encrypt the score and add a checksum i could come up with several simple methods for this if you would be willing to post that section of your code. For kicks I think it would be great to have it change a persons name to add (fellow) on the end if the...

Bug Report

I believe the previous post "random file" to be outlining a bug in the LSET command. If you run an LSET more than 255 times then print stops working right for strings....

Appears to be a bug in LSET

I know I have said this before, but this appears to be a bug with LSET. If you eliminate the LSET it works. The problem is when lset is called more than 255 times.... I wonder if this is a stack problem, but it definitely happens with LSET.....

Well, it appears that running the loop more than 127 times kills print. This is actually the LSET Command that is causing it... And specifically calling the LSET command more than 255 times... Weird... Why do you use the LSET command here instead of using ca.temporario = string$(100,"X") and ca.temp...

Im not normally one to be negative

Im not normally one to be negative, but IMO, you are probly biting off more than u can chew. It is feasibly possible, dont get me wrong, but you have to have a concept such as a virtual machine, so you can have one bit of code that gives each .exe multiple time slices..... It has taken many people m...

that works

That works, Its up to the individual, but if you want a string that is more dependant on the key, then try something like this..... Dim as Int x = 0 Dim as Int y = 0 Dim as Int z = 0 dim as int j = 0 dim as int k = 0 dim as int l = 0 Dim as String password = "hithere" Dim as string Key For...

Encryption, Storing a Key without storing it

This hit me laying in bed last night...... If you want to encrypt something, you must have a key, the problem with that is, how do you store a key without making it be easily found. The answer is obfuscate...... Ok Follow me here, if we have two keys and we xor them against each other we get somethi...

maybe an idea

forgive me, I am on some pretty powerful painkillers, just had neck surgery. Well i would start by turning the image black and white, say average the R G B channels to make a gray scale image, and lighten it, find a way to make a aura type of surrounding of sorts, and then use a transparency.....
