    Re: New thinBasic slogan

    Roberto what does that translate to in englsh?

    I know Volant means

    "Represented as flying, or having the wings spread as in flight. Applied to a bird; as, an eagle volant"

    what does Manent mean?

    in latin it means "permanency"

    Re: New thinBasic slogan

    Abraxas,

    do not worry about Roberto thoughts: he is in a bad day today ;D

    In any case, that sentence is taken from a Latin way of saying that is: verba volant, scripta manent.
    That into English can be something like: words go away but written words (on paper usually) remain.
    It is used in many cases when you want to be sure agree rules will be respected, so it is better to write donw them and agree on paper and not just orally.

    In this case, "thinBasic volant" seems a bad view of thinBasic and not a positive one.

    Re: New thinBasic slogan

    Maybe better is "Scripta volant" (volant also means fast).

    Scripta volant, thinBasic manent.

    (Just a joke )

    Re: New thinBasic slogan

    Eros,

    why you think bad? Look to positive!

    Volant means Volare (fly in english).

    However for better interpreter the latin motto I propose the following:

    ThinBASIC volant velox et scripts manent.

    Ciao,

    or maybe it should be...

    molto veloce e bello


    Sorry if I have mangled your beautiful language.
