Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

Here's a nice short program that will bite the Apple right down to the core!

Robert Foulke contributes this little gem that will generate random-type graphic images that are beautifully geometric. If you have a screen print program, you can get some super-fantastic printouts!

In the fourth program line, where you have the option of changing the RND number, try 3 or 30 first. These can produce some exceptionally fine graphics. But, as Robert says, any number will do.

We believe you'll really like this one. It can be extremely entertaining.

The Listing:

10 ' R. FOULKE - 1981
20 ' "POLYGON"
41 PI=3.14159:M=RND(90)
51 FOR T=0 TO 2*PI STEP PI/75
60 R=COS(M*T)*95
71 X1=COS(T)*R+128:Y1=SIN(T)*R+96
80 A=T+PI/3
90 R2=COS(M*A)*95
100 X2=COS(A)*R2+128:Y2=SIN(A)*R2+96
110 LINE (X1,Y1)-(X2,Y2),PSET 120 NEXT T
130 FOR T=1 TO 800:NEXTT
140 GOTO30
