Issue49 A very smart program. All very clever how it was put together. Presentation was very good with a menu, on screen instructions and a demo. Having a demo is magic and very professional. I looked at the demo for ages and saved myself hundreds of pounds! It certainly made me feel good.  From: D6G (Sprow) Subject: Bug fix updates I see the version number of the 8BS messaging system keeps creeping up, and the editor keeps announcing so, but what has changed? What makes this version so much better than the last, what bugs have been fixed, what features have been added. I hope you're not just doing a Micr*s*ft and altering the version number then re-releasing it (as a matter of interest Word 3,4 and 5 never existed and were never even started, the version number was just increased from V2 to V6 so that all the elements of MS Office were at the same version number to coincide with the release of Wind*ws 3.11). One thing I still find a problem in the system is the wordwrap. You've clearly checked whether the word has extended beyond the end of the line and wrap it correctly, but if you then delete a character from the word (such that it would now just fit on the previous line) the word stays put on the line below. Other than that all is well: the undelete part is particularly clever. From Robert Sprowson, 6 Bollinbrook road, MACCLESFIELD, Cheshire. SK10 3DJ Telephone (01625) 431067 8BSmail me on D6G EDITOR.... Changes to the messaging system are documented in the info file associated with that version. Steven Flintham has mentioned that the messaging system is like a mini word processor, but as it also features teletext editing, memory is a little too tight for full word editing facilities.  From: 3WU (Fred Price) Subject: When Not To Ring That man has done it again! What will he do next? And who is that man? Of course it is our beloved leader Chris! And what has he done? He has given us all the formulae in his program Shift Pattens which will tell WHEN NOT TO RING HIM due to what shift he is on. Without being disrespectful to anyone as it can be a problem when people ring at very inconvienent times which some people will no doubt do and this program will keep anyone informed of Chris's shifts and make it a little bit easier for him so friends the ball's in your court. I found the program very easy to use. You can print out weeks in hand very easily. If, say the last day on your printout is the 1st, make the next one the 2nd and keep on doing that and you have a working list of shifts as I did. Now I have a three month list printed out ready at hand. So keep up the good work Chris and thanks a lot. ******************                    
