I might regret asking this but why don't we like IE?
Because IE decides that
these files are text and others don’t.

Safari is a bug-ridden joke.
You just don’t know how to cook it. Works fine for me. (Unless, of course, you’re referring to the discontinued Windows version.)

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

To sum up my understanding of the points made: Tinker, tinker, tinker. As long as you're interested enough and have natural curiosity to try and sculpt your initial random wibblings you might get somewhere. Unfocussed random notes are not enough though, just a starting point. Yup, that’s the gist o...

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

Sound itself conveys a mood. If you pay attention to it, you will see (hear) that, before there is even a melody or a sense of progression, even the simplest case of having a continuously playing 'sound' of 2~3 notes put together might sound happy, or sad, or scary/awkward/menacing. Or something el...

i pressed some random keys in beepola and got a nice little tune,
whats the best way of posting the .wav file here?

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

The best person to answer your questions would be Tim Follin, obviously. ;) He managed to successfully marry art rock and computer music—the two genres that normally don’t mix well (at least when dealing with the limited capacity of 8-bit platforms). He was, if memory serves, only writing music; his...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

As an addition to todays progress report, now the project code is starting to get quite large, and having multiple source files. Even with lots of comments and my wibble in this development log even I am starting to find it difficult to keep track of what such and such subroutine does in the progra...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

I'm not against people modifying posts, but the original content needs to be intact, a bit like when you change the description on an eBay listing after someone has put a bid on, so, it becomes an addition rather than a modify. That’s why I add the proviso of a “special dispensation” issued by an a...
