    Default Hi from Scotland!

    I'm an old retired guy who keeps Alzheimers at bay by writing programs for my grandchildren, mainly front-ends for various retro-games. I've worked with Visual Basic, Delphi Pascal, Lazarus Free Pascal and now I'm converting programs to cross-platform Java, since I am a Linux fan. (two of my grandchildren have got me on to Raspberry Pi recently). I look forward to getting some help from fellow members when I get stuck, as happens only too often. I suppose I am really an old dabbler but I do enjoy the mental challenge of programming. Java is by no means the easiest of languages to work with, but it is such a thrill when you see your efforts actually up and running.
