Agreed - I used to post on here a lot but got bored of it when it was obvious there were no active people. I think in the main the only posts are made by paid posters and because of this if you read the threads most of the content is nonsense. I too get the annoying "long time" emails but in my case it is true that I have not visited for a while
As an aside, REXX is an interesting choice of language, I haven't used it since I owned an Amiga and AREXX was the only language that came with it. What about it makes it suited to your own programming?
