Want to see a neat computer program to play with? Creating a program like this in Basic in a classic computer would be quite a challenge!

go to this church website to see it:

When you move your curser, something special happens!

Oh no. I didn't dare click on it. Please tell me that it isn't a site that tells me "Jesus Loves You". I'm trying to be nice.

Well, there is a line of scroll text that follows the mouse pointer, and each letter moves individually. Such DHTML/JavaScript effects have been around for at least a half decade. Maybe not doable in Basic, but defintely in machine code on a computer with hardware sprites. Of course, most classic computers doesn't have a mouse pointer to begin with.

I think I have some nice widgets of the same kind for the Amiga mouse pointer. One in particular will make a number of Lemmings drop onto the screen, and they will walk on top of the window borders, fold out an umbrella when they fall down and then exit at the bottom right, only to enter again from the top.

More likely 'Madison Avenue loves you,' when you start clicking and poping open all the advertizing pop-ups...

If salvation is a nice DYCP scroller, a big part of e.g. the C64 sceners are halfway to become saints.
