Holy **** it's been 8 f---kin' years!
« on: May 12, 2011, 03:01:00 AM »

Ye olde timers will know me. This place is looking like it's falling apart. What the heck happened to QB? Is it dead / dying or is it just this forum? I think I left this forum atleast 8 years ago and briefly checked a while back. Was feeling nostalgic and I find some familiar names on the forum. I see wildcard's posts. Who is running this forum now? Last I knew SumoJo was supposed to be the admin. Wildcard left. Zire was running amuck...! It's been a LOOOOOONG time.

Hey TheBigBasicQ.  Good to see you around again.  

Well, wildcard took the site back over.  I'm helping out, but as you observed there's not much to help out on these days.  

The Qbasic scene has pretty much faded away.  Many QB programs fail to work in new Windows enviornments. Old QB users moved on the more modern languages, Qbasic isn't been taught much in schools any longer either. Etc, etc...

Many QB'ers went the Freebasic route, and some are also using the newer QB64 compiler which is the most Qbasic compatible thing I've used.  There's even a Linux & Mac version of it. Check it out at:
http://www.qb64.net.

I still have a Qbasic site up here (thanks to wildcard for still hosting it), visit it if you'd like:

Thanks for stopping by and saying hey.  Smiley

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
