I appreciate that you're keeping the lights on, wildcard.  I post a bit less than I used to, but it's nice that this place is still around to visit!

And it's ridiculously awesome.  So many of our classics, mere clicks away!





Though evidently, this news isn't quite breaking!

It's been a long while since the last update to the website but I've finally checked the links on the front page. It's unfortunate several high profile sites are no longer working or have been replaced with spam or unrelated content. If you notice anything wrong or looking strange on the website please leave a comment below or email  me. Qbasic may be a little less popular than it used to be but I'm keen to keep this site running well even if it's a little quiet.

Well, we have the technology.  I just created a google form to try to gather contact info, preferences, etc.  If you're interested in a reunion please fill it out and distribute it to others in the old QB crowd, because posting it just in these forums just won't cut it.  They don't have the reach they used to.  I'm hoping to gather the results in a month or so to try to organize something.  https://goo.gl/forms/AMBETvl22hHLoTdJ2

I feel really nostalgic.

We should have kept on this. MSDOS emulation is good and runs on most modern platforms. I've coded in QB and QBasic from time to time all these years.

I miss the good days. The laughs, the people, and even the fights Cheesy

I would favour a school reunion. Virtual of course. But I miss you guys.

Recently acquired an old 486 computer and thought it'd be fun to revisit some "old school" programming on it. Not sure how much time I'll spend with it, but I was writing some good ol' mode 13h code with DJGPP and wanted to compare a bit blit routine I did with something else and decided to see how DirectQB compared. Surprised myself that I was able to whip up a simple test program almost entirely from memory having not touched QBasic/DirectQB (or really any other BASIC whatsoever) since probably 2005-6 or so. Now thinking that maybe I need to set aside DJGPP and just toy around with QBasic instead! Smiley

(also DirectQB blew my own bit blit routine away, haha)

Good times.

I kinda miss the old crowd.

100% agreed.

I'm stopping by to say "hi". It's been a while. Life's gotten busy. Did my grad school and have been in the software industry for the past 8 years! Mostly doing Python, Java, Scala, C++ and such. I still remember QBasic fondly. Get nostalgic once in a while and so stop by. Cheers!

It's been like 6 years from my original post and close to 3 since the last post. Boy oh boy...time flies! How's everybody doing?
