I dislike the word professional, it means 'someone who asks money for her work', well i don't, and to me it's a bit hypocrite because it suggest quality, but that's not it's meaning. I consider myself a hobbyist who had a good idea, to implement ab to make it easier to code for astro.
Thanks for the compliments though. :)

Thanks Ed, and it waiting for you (hint hint) if you find time again. :)

Astrobasic was great to make, i still remember those days vividly. At one time i had the crazy idea of making the whole of planetdance one big script, so i was working on all kinds of menu functions. In those days Lotus and Wordperfect were popular and they had different kinds of menus and i wanted them all for astrobasic! :) But there were still fundamentals missing and i got into a terrible writers block, for weeks i could only read mail (no internet in those days, only fidonet). Then i started all over, doing a debugger along the way so i would always know what the script was doing. Great memories.
