Re: Columns in QB - Release

Also, I checked out your QB website. What a blast from the past! I love seeing a throwback style of website in this day and age. :)

Forum Upgraded to PHPBB v3.3

Hi all, I've upgraded the forum to PHPBB 3.3! Sorry for the recent downtime - the old installation broke for some reason. Welcome back to the forum, and enjoy.

Scrapship, a randomized top-down shooter programmed in Qbasic

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...

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.
