I'm running Macby (no login)
I have Windows and Ubuntu, but Mac seems to work best for my purposes, and I don't want to switch my OS just for QB64 as cool as it sounds, especially after reading that it could be coming to Mac. I haven't even booted Ubuntu in several months, and as for Windows, it must have been over a year since the last time I booted it. I'm probably just getting lazy in my "old" age (as the pre-teens call it when they discover my age).
Oh, and yes, DOSBox does work on Mac. It seems to perform the same as in Windows and Ubuntu, except the MOUNT command is understandably slightly different between the three due to the differences between file systems.
Clippy isn't bothering me. I've found that with people who seem to not notice a lot of stuff and assume the worst about everything they missed, you have to be really thorough, hence the long post. Although had he simply posted an example of his own method of pausing for intervals smaller than a second, all of this could have been avoided and I would have learned just as much, but it could be that he's unmotivated if he doesn't perceive a competition. From my perspective, the two lines of code I got out of it were well worth it even though I can't use them until I've resolved my clock issue.
