"Seemed" is inappropriate here, because indeed I did like it.
That's funny 'cos for the second time I have started over last week
a tutorial (in French) intended for the total newbies and computer
illiterates. I don't know yet where I'm going to but my goal is to
publish those lessons on the euro.futurebasic site. Unfortunately, I
cannot devote that much time on this heavy task at the moment, for
that matter I could be interested in having a look at your lessons.
Now, while I'm here, I would say that I'm considering to get rid of
the Pouch, I know it is still well frequented but I've been unable
to keep it up to date and I hate to see it in that state. For the
same reason I have given up on the idea to give away the Pouch in
the Apple help format. In fact, I've started to believe that it is
not a good thing for the promotion of FB^3, nowadays. Actually, the
Pouch is OK for those who already know fairly enough FB, but I fear
that for novices it may bring more confusion than help.
When shall we see a great book about FB^3 on the shelves?
