Oh my.

I have just read and replied to the other post regarding vgersh99 and the 1 million views and then I see this.
Many thanks for the award and I remember me bragging about AudioScope and saying I was going to learn shell scripting, Lord knows what you guys must have been thinking at the time, perhaps "here we go another big mouth spouting drivel". ;oD
I've just looked at post number 1 of AudioScope and think how primitive it was compared to now.
Until that time I had not had any experience with the *NIX shell and had no idea how powerful it was.

I now know how powerful it is, and with the plethora of tools/utilities/commands at its disposal it is a seriously powerful means of getting something done.

I do love getting a language to do something it was not designed to do and I think I have posted this before, *NIX shell scripting is now my language of choice.
I am now getting well into POSIX and trying to abandon bash or ksh and my next project I hope to be fully dash compatible.

So again thank you for this award but let us not forget those regulars on here that helped me with some of my programming antics, especially Corona688 whom
I regard as my mentor.

So after seeing my name there I was gobsmacked, what a New Year present eh!

I am still in awe of you professionals and absorb all I see that you all post.

Bazza...

Ha ha, thanks a lot; not just the shell(s) but the terminal emulators too.

There is a very large subset of the escape sequencies still valid for current terminal emulators and I exploit them to the full.

The WWW is a minefield of information and was extremely helpful to me and actually pointed me here on many an occasion prior to me becoming a member.
That was what made me join late 2012 and in January 2013 was my first exploit is now history - AudioScope.sh.

So my (mis-)use of the terminal MUST also be added also... ;oDD
