( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I hoped to not be the only one who started with that machine :). I got mine used in 1986; I wrote my first assembler on it, small routines that animated automatic 'doors' via interrupt-vector-changes in games written in basic (too well structured, after a couple of ours, the calling from subroutine to subroutine caused a stack overflow :).
Mighty little machine, if you simply forgot about the namesaking office suite it had stucked in a rom-chip (four programms, hence +4), you could switch memory banks, define your own character-sets (just poke the address into the place where the pointer to it is expected), and so on...

I hate these questions, I'm not that old ;)

    [Corion]: marto: Naah, my module doesn't care, but the users of my module might expect some things to work in Chrome that only work in later builds (or, as seems to be the case, don't work there either ;) )
    [Corion]: But I really wonder - I can tell Chrome to go offline, but requesting pages over the network still succeeds. But if I manually click the "offline" checkbox, that's different :-/
    [LanX]: Corion can you tell WMC to check the sub version number ?
