Starting with Microsoft Visual C and eventually moving to Pelles C Compliler.The owner of the Company has no background with C and he refuses to learn it, so the up and coming project until retirement in 7 to 10 years is to rewrite everything in vb.net. (I would have preferred C# to vb but he signs the paychecks.) I explained to them that it would probably have issues with string garbage collection but his knowledge of programming is where he doesn't quite understand what this is. I know that it's better than the basic of the Commodore days.

  • I'm having this same problem as well under Windows 7 64-bit. This is only site that I have email problems with. My program is Eudora OSE, which is based on Thunderbird. I do not plan on changing software because of only one site.

    What part of "be nice" from the message submission don't you understand? Tell you what, I'm a computer programmer that has been in the industry for 37 years. I don't like your attitude. I've probably been programming longer than you've been alive.Something that has not been developed further for three years is no big deal. That fact that everything else works fine tells me there is something wrong with their system. Some of up like to use pop mail boxes where we can keep our emails for a long time.I don't need your advice, I want to know what the problem is so that I can remedy on my own..

    It's a good teaching on evaporation and melting points. If we didn't have salt in our sweat, our body moisture would evaporate more quickly.
