Final guess: VisSim

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I know nothing about ‘puters but I will have a guess anyway! My guess is:

I hope DrJones is too classy to use that programming language.   Shocked

I did! Do you really think I have the faintest clue about the names I throw in the goblet of fire?

Clearly more difficult that I anticipated. I didn't intend to push up this thread over and over with this little giveaway. Sorry!

It has to end... so: next (and hopefully last) round.

It is in this list: Timeline_of_programming_languages

It's several years older than Java, but younger than Modula-2. More precisely: It is more older than Java than it is younger than Modula-2. 

It still is quite common in some way. However: While it runs on my PC and I code in it, both is quite uncommon, the latter even rare.

While quite many computer-related people know about it, few know about it's full potential.

 

It is usually not used for simulations of any kind (nor for programming in general), but it has quite some capabilities regarding graphics.

Thank you very much… I am looking forward to giving this a try.

I was 99% sure I had the right answer on 1-11-2016, right after I gave a wrong answer.

It has not been quick for me.

Red will get a long walk tonight.

There is a lot I don't know about PostScript!

Nice going, chadvone.

Congratulations chadvone. Never would have guessed it.
On the other hand: everything that happened after I learned how to put the ram in the rama lama ding dong is one big blur.

DMG6968U. 10A seems to be the practical limit for the driver under good conditions (Nichia219C triple; while a driver with a big FET gave about 15A, as far as I remember), and with an XM-L2 it gives 5.8A, which I find quite sufficient.
