I just made a decision. It's a big one for me, small for you - I'll now start programming my new progs in C. No more Visual Basic. I wanna be a REAL programmer now. It's about time... The only bad thing is development time: It'll now take me 3 times more long to code a similar app in C than would've taken in VB. But well I'm in no hurry and who knows, if I'm good, I might get almost as fast as VB in C.
