    WOW, yet another great read...

    @All who contributed

    Thank-you, that gave a lot of insight to many things. These should be listed on the start-page of the help-files. With a quick-index of the contents. (Listed in reverse order, newest to oldest, for relevance as TB grows.)

    That was a nice break from task at hand. It is nice to be able to sit back and read something for enjoyment, rather than for research, and still get the bonus of learning in the process.

    I had a little bit of a hard time wrapping my head around <TAB>, but I enjoyed it all the same.

    This is a very substantial read Petr. I am about half way through and there is so much to take in. I particularly enjoyed your motion blur article and demo. - soon we will be able to generate landscapes and other surfaces on-the-fly. I can see that #3 is going to be even larger.

    Great subjects handled in this issue.

    I actually found a copy of issue one on my HD a few days ago, and wondered if there was going to be another...

    ... lets hope the journal goes on and on.

    Re: ThinBasic Journal, Issue 2

    Thanks Intio for your comment.

    Actually we try to release a new issue when we release a new thinBasic version.
    But this can change depending on how many articles we have top publish. Everyone can create an article. Just let us know your material and we will publish it.
    If we receive enough interesting articles we can think to publish new issues even if there will be no new thinBasic version.

    Ciao
