CoCo Urbane

The Good and the Bad

I’ve been using github for a while. Everytime I did a commit It gave this error message in a big window. CRLF instead o f LF line endings. I just endured it. Finally I mentioned it to my son. He spent a while on it. Now no more error messages. Everytime I do a commit and it just does it I get a warm feeling all over. That’s the good.

I have behavior health issues. I’m willing to accept creepy ideas as real when they aren’t necessarily so. I have my IMUrbane project working well enough that I can write programs in Urbane basic that actually do things. I wrote a meaningful program which gave me some strange results. Instead of assuming my project was working and my Urbane program was faulty. I spent several hours trying to pin down how my project was flawed. Coco basic and Urbane basic which is just an extension of it both have this feature that if you say print@n it will print at a spot specified by n. Finally I thought maybe I should look at my Urbane program. I tried likely commands on the command line. Finally I discovered that I had left out the @ sign. It made some really strange results. It printed n at the current spot on the screen. Oh well. All’s well that ends well.
