Post Events - still alive?
I've noticed some mention of events, but I haven't found it in the help file, but the functions seem to still exist.

I was wondering if I should or should not experiment with them? Is there a reason they are not mentioned often?

They are not mentioned often because like Fight Club, rule number one is that one does not talk about events.

Actually, they're pretty much non-functional and a vestige of the RCX days. Implementing them for the other platforms has been discussed but I am not sure what kind of priority it's been given :)

So they do work with the RCX, then? What are they?

They allow you to generate an event when the analogue sensor value changes, that sort of thing. I've never used them, so you may need to dig around in the examples (if there are any for this).
