you can post QB code in the qbasic part of the forum and the FB code in the freebasic part of the forum. if you actually release a game/util sometimes people post that to the announcment part of the forum. make sure to burn some paper copies of your code too incase something should happen to the CD's.

needless to say its probably not a good idea to have the same password
at different forums..incase one gets hacked they can't jump over to the
next one and mess with your account.
