Cool to see you, Al. When I was trying to do some hobbyist type programming, I became a fan of your work.

I think Python is a perfect "midlife crisis" programming language for me since it reminds me of being in college and typing things into BASICA / GW-BASIC around the DOS 2/3.x era. Your port of GORILLA.BAS to Python confirmed it for me:

When you say "flexible Cloud-based and Client-based PIM"  -- it looks like it is all cloud-based because it requires a login from the Windows client. Was hoping something else, but that's OK, it still may be good.

Nice find! I'll be giving this a shot. Noted that there is a mobile version, that's something obvious that is missing from some note-taker programs.

wraith, I knew it was spoofing and that I can't prevent that but I'd been able to get people to blacklist my old address, at least those people wouldn't be seeing that particular spam anymore. Unless the spammer followed me to the new email address, which didn't seem to happen.

It's probably always been dead to 16-18 year olds because the rest of us are there  -- and 16-18 years is a tiny demographic.

I am one of those people who hate Facebook but still use it because people are on it, and it seems to be the default way to keep in touch with friends and family members, when you don't really have anything to say.

Adults used to write letters (kids still do), and sometimes put pictures in those envelopes. I haven't done that in decades, it's just easier to type one sentence instead of write a whole page, and post the picture there, and it is 1:Many communication, so there is a chance someone will care.

I tried Whatsapp and wasn't impressed. You can only use it with people who know your phone number anyway, and if you travel outside your home country and have to put in a new SIM card for a different phone number, you're offlne.
