Hi,

Looks like you all have done my corrections, I do not think I can keep up with the pace of this.

When the programme is working, is it possible to add options to use higher screen resolution and colours?


Regards,

The program is complete now as entered so far as we can see.

Dilwyn can add it to the Sinclair QL Homepage. I would suggest it then gets added to Github so people can add extra facilities :)

The software can now be found on Github - https://github.com/SinclairQL/TalentGraphicsToolkit

Feel free to improve the listing to support higher resolutions, and higher screen modes.

Hi,

Here is the extract from the Sinclair User Annual, showing the listing and description of the programme.

I will extract the text and save it to a file.

Hi all,

I co-wrote this with Professor Jon Malone when at Strathclyde University, where Talent was based - many, many years ago... we were asked to do 'something' by Sinclair User - Kudos moment!

The Prof did all the maths/fractal stuff, I did the user interface.

It is an absolute delight to see it back out there and available (with bugfixes!).

Preserving, digging, hell, doing archaeology, for our tech history is a wonderful thing.

It's not a brilliant program, but that doesn't matter. It existed then, and it exists again now, thanks to all of you.

You've made an old(er) geek very happy!
