Re: CODEROOM - 1000 free VB code samples available for download !
Just revisiting this thread after some months away. Karl, I take small
exception to you grouping me with Rogerio & Steve, et al. If you check,
you'll find that it was me who started this argument. I'm on your side. I
have the intention to publish some of my code soon and I would hate to see
some talentless hack strip out my copyrights and publish it as 'anonymous'
or his own work. Besides, I'm rather vain about these things, and if I
publish something, I want to see MY f***ing name in MY code. I would not
do this to somebody else's code and I expect them not to do it to mine.
Sorry, don't mean to restart an old argument, but I have rather strong
feelings about all this.
