Isolation time waister for me - jokes for you!
« on: 11:58, 15 April 20 »
Hi all, here is a little program to display a collection of jokes (around 900) in a random order to keep you entertained while in lock down. That's the theory - truth be told it was written more to keep my mind active while being kept in a degree of isolation. I'd done all I could with Mazist since converting it to M/Code (also a great time waster for adults and kids alike) so I did this last week. It's a pretty simple program and its use is self explanatory though you can read the included .txt file for more info. All the files are included for you to make your own compatible joke files.  As far as the jokes go, they are kid friendly as there are no overt swearing and no sexual jokes included - I'll leave that up to you. Some jokes do need an adult mind to comprehend though.

Enjoy, and stay safe and healthy.

Hehe that's lovely :) I like the interface you've gone into the trouble to build!

Would it be possible to go back to the previous joke? Sometimes I find myself pressing space twice to see the rest of a joke but it turns out it was just being slow in displaying it, so I skip the current joke...


Also, a way to prevent jokes from appearing twice in a single session?

I know, it's silly to ask for a feature, but... :D
