Re: Panda BLAST!

Thanks for sharing this game and your website! Reminds me of the good old QBasic days. (Even if I happen to like pandas and am not so keen on shooting them.) :)

Re: Well, is this the end?

You are correct that this website is just an archive at this point. Hardly anyone still programs in QBasic, ever since Windows fully moved on from DOS and QBasic wasn't properly supported. But this website still does get a fair amount of traffic, all things considered. The big tutorials archive is s...

Looks great, Mark. I've always been a big fan of ARC Legacy. It'll be fun to play it again in a browser. :)

Re: Forum upgraded to phpBB3

I'm looking into making .htaccess rewrite rules which will parse incoming links for the old forum and automatically redirect to the proper URL on the new forum. I'll play around with it and see what I can figure out. That way, you won't need to update any of the old links.

Awesome! That could definitely bring QB back to life online.
