Why David Williams left the forum?
David seems not only to have left this forum, but to have disappeared off the face of the earth entirely. He last posted to SyntaxBomb
on December 22nd last year and last updated his own proggies.uk
site on January 23rd. I have tried emailing him twice since then, but have received no reply.
Does anybody know what happened? The creation of the gfxlib
library for BBCSDL, which goes some way to reproducing the functionality of David's GFXLIB2 library for BB4W, seemed to have re-ignited some enthusiasm, for example see his post here
. But evidently that didn't last: even the download page for GFXLIB2 appears to have gone.
As well as concern over his own wellbeing, the loss of such a talent - David was responsible for some of the most impressive programs ever written in BBC BASIC, in my judgement - is a real blow to the survival of BBC BASIC for Windows
and BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0
