Last weekend I rediscovered a great debugging tool that I had used years ago: sound. Get some alert sounds form QuickTime and play them at critical parts of your program. I used two different sounds for identifying a transition from one loop to another.

That's a good idea. Sometimes the output window gets in the way when in graphics mode.

I already suggested in feedback the console window should be smaller ( like the one in java )

You learn new things all the time! Especially those that you should have learned early on.

Yes, the good old "beep."

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
