For completeness, from the point of view of decimal numbers:


Even though I have used NWC for 21 years now (my first crank organ arrangement, "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy", is from 1999), I don't know any names in those threads, except Fred Nachbaur.

Looking forward, when will 100000 be? Assuming roughly similar traffic (i.e., NWC is not going viral), some 9 times 24 = 216 years in the future, i.e., by year 2236, give or take a few (decades? centuries?).

See you in the 100000 thread!  :))

Long, long ago, let say 45 years, while discussing with some friends, someone, maybe me, said: we'll meet in ten years and we'll see who was right.
Indeed we met some 15..20 years later but none remebered what was the matter...  :D

This is one of the best stories I have heard - ever. Short, to the point, and totally zen. I will spread it. It's worth it.

Best advice from my grandmother just before she died in 1976:

I had hoped to find a specific date somewhere in the old posts, but there was nothing. I got the same thing Wed Apr 20 2236 06:41:57 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time) using MidPoint.htm.

Given how dramatically things have changed in the last 50 years, I can't imagine what they'd be like in another 200. We'll all have wireless transceivers installed in our skulls at birth (with an optional MIDI equivalent add-in when we are old enough to appreciate music). We won't need to use quaint keyboards to exchange messages with each other.

 Until relatively recently there was an original Forum accessible at https://noteworthycomposer.com/nwcforum/.  Perhaps I nodded off when we were told it was going to be erased, and so didn't see that?  Anyway, shouldn't the Forum Numbers Count start from this old one?

The old NoteWorthy installation CD's have archives of the old forums.
Thanks! I didn't realize this (or if I did know it once, I had forgotten).  I dug out my NWC 1.75b CD, and sure enough, in folder \PROGRAMS\NWCFORUM are the files NWCForum.cnt and NWCForum.hlp.  So I copied the files to my hard drive and double-clicked the 8.3MB .hlp file... which redirected me to a Microsoft web page to tell me that Windows 10 no longer supports .hlp files, and if I have Windows 8.1 or older, I could install WINHLP32.exe.

But I don't give up so easy. I eventually found a version of WINHLP32 that will install on Windows 10, although it has that quaint Windows 95 look and feel. It seems odd to browse forums as though they are a help file, but I applaud NWC for actually trying to preserve this information.

I subsequently read that Microsoft had removed support for .hlp files because of security concerns, so I don't know if I will keep using this program. I did discover that it's possible to convert a .hlp file to a .chm file (aka HTMLHelp), which is apparently more secure, and more importantly, still supported in Windows 10.  However, the process looks a bit complicated, and I'm not planning to do it.

And to my memory, the numbering was preserved from the old forum, but I could be mistaken ... I am 33 now, after all :-D
