    I had some issues until it understood that I wanted translate a newer gw-basic program to ZBASIC v1.0. I would list a routine that was giving me trouble getting it to run in ZBASIC that was written with GWBASIC and it would point out the errors and suggest a better way to code the routine. I...

    I've been asking the CHATGBT AI thingy with questions about my old Zenith Z-110 computer and it was well informed about it.

    I gave up on http: with my 386. I can still FTP to places and get files. Normally I DL what I want using a current newish compute and browser, which I can then transfer it to the 386 over my local NET. I'm running WFW 3.11 on my 386.

    I am planning to be where that computer is next weekend. I will check the BIOS and check if any other files might be saved on that system. I do remember updating that BIOS when I went to the 850 P3 from a 450 P2.
