Still around in some form or other. We FB'ers now hang on freebasic.net and other such places. I've just about left forum posting for dead. I haven't coded much at all since about two years ago. I have worked on an IRC bot, but progress is very slow. Functional it is, however, when I decide to run it...

I do tend to lurk on IRC than anything else. I'm still available on MSN and Yahoo! and Skype. I would like to see us all get together one day for a chat. I think for most of us, real life has taken over. I don't milk cows anymore, lost the job due to a number of factors. Instead I make fences. I'm now enjoying what a real job has to offer: weekends!

"Around" is quite a liberal definition if applied to my presence...Holy hell guys, I've been gone for ages now...

I guess I can qualify as an 'oldie', but I don't think my presence here can be qualified as still being 'around', and more like 'visiting every few months'.

Ah well. In the meantime I've more or less graduated from QB/FB and DOS in general. My job has had me programming in C++ for over a year, and now C# with SQL, so it's quite different from my past programming.

I hope everyone's doing fine here Smiley

Hi guys, it's nice to "see some old faces" (you get the idea :lol:). I've came here just to check out.

I'm in touch with some of the old timers, mainly Dav "Nekrophidius", Lachie or Josiah Tobim thru' facebook and a few others, but I really miss the good ol' times. Mainly for the chit-chat, the fun, and the jokes. Even the flame wars. It was great fun.

I see that most of us don't do QB anymore, but it would be fine to gather somewhere for the sake of it.

Cheers everyone Smiley

Was in the neighborhood, and figured I'd drop by.  I was in high school, maybe middle school when I started posting here; even remember celebrating my 16th with you guys.   Almost finished with college now, and working on my master's.  Time flies.  

Started coding in FB.  Would you believe that I've used it for class at least once a year, every year, since college started?

And I've still never "finished" a game.   Cheesy   I have fond memories of you all.  

[edit] LOL, I still have the NASA avatar!

Does anyone know how Seph is?  I remember he had a son or daughter.  It occurs to me that that child is five or six now, wow!  And rel's 32 bit avatar has probably started school.

I don't know if I classify as an "oldie" or not. I do know that it's been ages since I looked around here last. College work and other interests have gotten in the way of QB/FB. But now I'm working on my CS degree and started poking around for material for an assignment, so... we'll see if I come back or not. Smiley

I remember the good old days when there was only one thread going, on aliens, and the few of us still posting were trying to be the last one there. Tongue

I randomly pop in from time to time too... mostly for nostalgia really.

Can't believe how long ago it seems that all the "old timers" use to hang out around here all working on their RPG engines, QB OSes, asm-powered super awesome graphics libraries or whatever else. All we're really missing is the old black theme for the forum, heh.

Haven't touched QB since probably a year or so before I stopped hanging around here I think. I've been working in C# and some PHP jobs for the last few years. And in my spare time if I can actually be arsed to code something, it's usually in C++.

Anyway, great to see this place still exists!

Nice to see old regulars pop in, these forums are a bit of a ghost town but there are still a lot of memories/good information around. I need to look at my site todo list and fix/rework a lot of the site into a more updated/coherent site (but will still a copy for old times sake, as I do have a copy of the now ancient phpBB 1 forum from back in the day).

I randomly pop in from....damn, you took my line Fling. Tongue

Anyway, time sure flies. Way too fast if you ask me. What happened with my life? What happened with my dreams? What....khm...never mind.

I don't do QB for ages now. I was rather active in FB game design for a while, but it must be over a year and a half now since I didn't release anything, and many months since I coded anything at all. I guess I lost my mojo or something. I do maintain http://games.freebasic.net and organize a FB game making competition here and there, but nothing spectacular. If I disappear, don't be surprised.

It's all...you know, meh...

Didn't lost interest in game design really. I'm just very, very out of form. Thinking about writting something, but I have so much to practice and stuff to learn in that department which is all leaving me somewhat apathic. I'm employed and I'm living with my girlfriend. Smiley

I'm going to see Metallica in May.

Meh... Tongue

Sorry to post in this old thread, I just thought it'd be a perfect place to say I still visit. From time to time. Cheesy

Sorry for posting in this old thread but I just thought I should give a shout Smiley. It has been almost 10 years since I made my last post here, but my old account still works. Back in the day I was known as the guy who always had a small snipped of code for coders in need Cheesy. It's nice to see Neo, pr0gger and Na_th_an are still 'active'. I still have most of my old qb programs on my computer. I never had the heart to delete them, it's like some kind of old photo book of code now. Qb has taught me lots of things about coding and it is what I am still doing today, although in Java and .net...

Well I wish all of you qb coders all the best!

Just dropped in...many years since last visit. Nice to see QBN isn't dead.
Nowadays I dream of making my own roguelike but there's one little problem.... to do that I must start learing how to code again  Roll Eyes
