Eberhard Funck
HildesheimGermanyFunck Beginning with programming in GFA Basic for Atari ST in 1992. Two vears later with Turbo Pascal and C for DOS and GFA Basic for Windows I work as an engineer in the faktory "Blue Point" (BLAUPUNKT). My programming style in GFA Basic is like that of C, therefore I don't like to use the original GFA Basic function. I use only Windows API functions (I mean that's better). My best program is the CTRLTOOL.DLL. With this you can make, also under Windows 3.xx, a good Program surface in Windows 95 look. I love it, to make good grafical surfaces for good programms and to try programming with all new API-Functions. You Can Email Eberhard Funck

Kevin Scott
Licolnton
N. CarolinaUSA Mainly my programming interests have been primarily games, many of which I have written for Atari systems. Most notably was a game called 'Cops and Robbers that I wrote in GFA basic that was marketed by JV Software, Inc. I like many other GFA programmers had previously used Atari versions of GFA and then 'converted' over to the IBM world. Professionally I am a Foxpro/DBase Programmer, but I have written many IBM GFA programs also including a BMP editor, a Decent Screen Saver (freeware), a Chess/Othello type of game (which I haven't marketed yet), a Database Integrity Checker, and various smaller programs and DLLs.I am 32 years old and married happily for 8 years with no children. I have been programming since the TRS-80 and Atari 400 days and have programmed at least to some degree in just about every major programming language out there but mainly Basic and DBase type languages are my area of expertise. I currently work for a large corporation as a systems developer and do small projects on the side. Even though GFA isn't a big name in the programming industry I have yet to find another language that I like as well for writing games and small apps! His Photo You Can Email Kevin Scott

George Redford, Karl-Kirk Michael
Isle of Man, British IslesBritish IslesPrivately I find programming a fascinating ,extremely time consuming, hobby,where time and the outside world cease to exist .My first desk top computer was an IBM 5100 64k memory and 250k tape drive (those were the days when programmers used bits not bytes to store information) and I learnt the basic language from a book and programmed it in (IBM) Basic to calculate and printout the wage slips for my small engineering factory.I wrote a Golf club program which does the handicaps ,fixtures ,competitions ,accounts etc. for the 2 Atari Mega4 computers using ,guess what,a German language which I had read about and bought named GFA BASIC. So briefly,publicly I guess you can say that my interest in computers is broadly speaking, database / business orientated. You Can Email George Redford

FloridaUSA Millar Brainard. Consultant to Telemetry Systems but works independantly FORTRAN, BASIC, GFA for ATARI ST, GFA-DOS, and then on up to GFW, it has been become second nature to develop SCADA and Remote Control Applications for Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants. Communications over hard wire, Private RF Nets, CDPD, and other Cellular Technologies present no problems. Presently challenged to develop routines to more efficiently transfer data from background applications to a main application analyzes information, creates operating logs, and notifies operators of problems, sometimes before they become critical. A Voice notification module is normally a part of each application. I established Telemetry Systems for Utilities, Inc. many years ago. Everything pictured has a GFA-DOS or GFW application operating. Prior to GFW, I had several Water/Sewer plants operated by Atari-ST under GFA-DOS. My ownership of Telemetry Systems, Inc. was sold in March 1999. The present owners are heavily involved in installation and turn-up of major Broadband communications systems for Nortel Networks. I consult with them so therefore still use the TS address.

David Wicker
Fort Worth
TexasUSA David Wicker . Hello ! I would never have found out about GFABasic if it were not for Russell Hayward ! I started on computers back when I was 10 years old and have been going strong ever since. One of my biggest complaints about programming was running out of memory. I told Russell I will not leave QBasic 4.5 unless he can provide and prove 4 things: 1) An Editor equal to or better than QBasic 2) An easy way to play both .MID and .WAV files in the background 3) WindowLock 4) Enough memory to write decent code. Well, he came through and showed me them all ! My interests in programming are Games, especially RPGs and RPG Generators, Screen Teasers, and Graphic Tools. Since I haven't really grown up, I tend to watch a lot of cartoons, collect Anime & Hentai, and play RPG videogames. I'm also between dating now so if you're in Fort Worth, TX, are close to my age of 33, and share similar interests, especially if you're really sexy, look me up and show me what you know besides computers and games ! :) Homepage His Web Site You Can Email David Wicker

Jean-Marie Melanson
CanadaGermanyDieppe, NB, Canada Primary Gfa programming interest. (Data base, graphical, utilities, etc.) My interest in programming grew from a general interest in computer control to generating useful utilities to help with my painting hobby. You could say I am mainly interested in aspects of computer simulations. Notable GFA projects in terms of time and effort invested are a Lunar Module simulation program (3 years), a board game called Chessers featuring sound effects and animation(6 months) and a stepper motor control program using the parallel port. In general, programming to me, is like working on a jigsaw puzzle, I like the challenge of tinkering with code and coming up with an answer on my own rather than relying on someone else's solution. I work as a computer engineering technologist in a hospital biomedical engineering deptartment. I am married, Wife Judy, 3 grown kids, dog and cat. Check out his web site and his fantastic paintings.

Antonio Barbosa
Portugal..Portugal
Antonio Barbosa (aka AB) a.I'm 46, married, with 3 childs. Live and work in Porto (Portugal) As most of us, I started with gfa for ATARI. With it, I made some programs for textile industry and some are still being used! Later, with GFA for windows 3.x, I made many programs (also are still used) for newspaper (editorial & production).At late 2000, I started with GB32 and I love it (allthough I'm not still at easy with it and despite some anoying bugs...) What I dislike more about GFA is the lack of information in decent language (excuse me you, german speakers...) that makes me try to guess how things work! I think it's because of it, the main reason of existance of this mailing list (btw, I must thank Dale for his work) What I like more about GFA is that it's still a powerfull and quick way to do good programs.And, of course, it's 100% Micro$oft free. (I know that it's not absolutely true, but I like to say it....) I like Windows 2k, but I hate ALL the other stuff of MS. I also do some projects with MicroChip microcontrolers and now I'm starting with OPL for PSION handheld (btw, is there somebody suffering the same disease?) Antonio Barbosa

My programming interests with GFA lie mainly the development of financial reporting systems and small specialized accounting/invoicing systems. I've also developed many small DLL's with GFA which have been used to link old style mainframe database data to Excel spreadsheets. By way of background, I started using GFA-WIN about 4 years ago when I found that the then current Visual Basic just couldn't meet my needs or was just to slow. GFA-WIN is great, particularly how you can use it in either a "C" or "GFA" style. You Can Email Pat Bullman

I am the editor of four tiny little weekly newspapers along the south shore of Lake Ontario. Started on the Atari 400 with BASIC XL and assembler/editor, moved along to the Atari ST and GFA for that machine. My 14 year-old son, Donny, is now using GFA Windows to write small games.....Visit  His Web Site You Can Email Tom Wilkinson

All the programming I do is for my own company, it's all about bookkeeping, writing offers, confirmations, invoices, databases for storage, and a lot of administrative stuff, sales statistics, automatic fax ordering etc. I started programming in GFA-Basic on Atari, when DOS on XT 8-bit machines was still the industry standard, I'm still using it, with MagicPC (an Atari emulation on Win 95, runs great), in the meantime most of the programming is done with GFA-Basic for Windows, looking forward to GFA-32bit.Visit  His Company Site You Can Email Christoph Mueller

Howard

Mindare Beach..Australia.
An electrical engineer by training. Began writing computer games in 1982 (BBC BASIC) as The Midnight Oil. Emigrated from the UK to Australia in January 1996 and now sell the games over the internet. Used GFA for the Atari, then Amiga, then PC DOS and now Windows . Just general interest in programming. I'm not a "professional" programmer. I write the music I don't tune the piano. Unfortunately not something easily done with Windows. Have a copy of VB and will sometime get into it - particularly if GFA don't bring out the 32 bit version of GFA BASIC soon  Visit His Web Site You Can Email Malcolm Howard
