Oh, wow... that forum sounds like a half-assed pile of crap, TBH. If they didn't want people posting links, that should've been very clear and concise, and should've simply forbidden links to be displayed, like with other forum sites, such as my own. I can understand them trying to get rid of spambots (God they do my head in!) but throwing aside decent members is a bit harsh. :|
I'm definitely going to get VB
at some point, then, as I would love to be able to run MS-DOS games again, assuming it supports that? I'll pass on the book, as I can just easily wing it... and ask you any questions that might arise.
