Simon,

Dan,

I'm pleased that you are still a fan of compiling with FTN95.

When I got a PC with a 486 and 16Gb RAM, I was able to run bigger problems than were possible on mainframes at 2 of the UK's le ...

Hi Paul,

I hope that you were able to take my reply in the tongue in cheek manner in which it was intended. As a result of the Fr Ted - Bishop Brennan kick up the backside, I've had a look at the c ...

Hi Paul,

I beg to differ on the 'no longer useful', except with the reservation that 'no longer supported' certainly makes it 'no longer useful'. I'm also fascinated by the idea that 'no longer sup ...
