I'm surprised that the squirrel is alive and well and not the wrong side of a deep fat fryer :)  Well, he would be at risk if this was the KFC where I live, it's ropey.

No signs of live animals within 2 miles of it, all have been deep fried.

CODING AREA / Re: My take on bubbles . . .

It shouldn't be too difficult to make the bubbles see-through Andy, there's loads of ways to do it.

The fastest and easiest way to do it without having to do any bitwise stuff would just be to render colour indexes to a buffer and use the indexes to reference a palette when you copy the buffer into the screen.

It is the technique I used here;

For all the fake light sourcing, it is doing about 7 huge metaballs with no slowdown, easily fast enough for some bubbles :)

Sorry for no source, I am in work at the moment killing a little bit of time.

OK, I get the point... Obviously you all want to do things your own way at your own pace, and suggestions for improvements and fundraising ideas are not really welcome, so I'll keep my opinions to myself in future!

No,  you have failed to get the point.
As I said above, some of your suggestions will be taken on board so clearly they are being taken into account.

The fact is that Andy and Linda and everyone else who is dedicated to this are doing a great job of maintaining this community, this project is only here because of the dedication of many of the members, with respect Witchfinder, and as someone who only has time to browse this forum occasionally (looking in on it as somewhat of an outsider with an objective point of view) I feel it is you who is on the prod and not Linda and Andy being defensive.

Andy and Linda and everyone else here is committed to making this museum a reality, they have operating costs, not only rent, but travelling around to collect systems, buying items for the museum, time spent in organising events, and much much more.

Some of your suggestions will be taken on board but I politely suggest that you have some patience and let things will happen in thier own time. They really will happen, I have spoken to Andy for hours on the phone about this very thing and discussions and design thoughts are actually ongoing, things have not stopped as you seem to think.

I have a lot of pleasure in saying happy birthday, it's gone amazingly well, I only wish I lived closer so that I could have taken part a bit more.

Nice that you made a Hello World tutorial in C++ Hotshot.

Andy, as you know I would never entice members away from here, but the best advice I would give is to visit a dedicated site such as dbfinteractive (the link is in my sig) and you will get lots of help from beginners and experts alike, and I mean that. There are some really clued up people there who will get you off the ground.

Learning to program is a wonderful thing and it is something that will allow you to use these old computers to their full potential.

Maybe it will be you who makes the next RCM invite with a little bit of practice, help and time. :)

The site is less than a year old and looks like we will be around for a long time.

I'll drink to that :)
