Whole Lotta Updatin' Going On

Postby Pete » Tue Mar 08, 2005 11:39 pm

<p><strong>Whole Lotta Updatin' Going On</strong> -- Posted by <a href="mailto:pberg1@ithaca.edu">Pete</a> on March 8, 2005<br>
Hey guys! It's been a long time since I've done it, but I've finally gotten around to actually... updating this site. You know, some of those little additions and maintenance type things that really make a big difference around here. I've actually done quite a bit. <br> <br>First of all, I added two new QB magazines to the <a href="/sections/zines/zines.shtml">Zines section</a> -- <i>The QFiles</i> by Secret Weapon Software, and <i>QBasic Gamer Magazine</i> by Terry Cavanagh (courtesy of Matthew R. Knight). All four issues of <i>QFiles</i> and both <i>QB Gamer</i> issues are available. This is a great addition of just a few more important relics of QB history that anyone with the slightest interest in QB's Internet past should check out. <br> <br>By request, I have also gone through the Zines section and compiled a downloadable Zip archive of every magazine in the collection. This will come in useful if you're on a dial-up connection or interested in making a permanent backup. Just click the link next to "Archive". <br> <br>I've also done an overhaul of the <a href="/sections/express/express.shtml">QB Express</a> section. Instead of a crappy looking barebones list of links to each issue, now there is a listing of all the articles in each of the past seven QB Express mags, with links. Then, like the Zines section, I have made downloadable zip archives of each issue. People have requested this a few times, and I've responded...finally. Now hopefully all of you whiny complainers will be happy, and stop bugging me, heheh. <br> <br>And then there were a lot of other small updates. I added several links, fixed up broken links and the affiliates box, the copyright footer, and some other things not worth mentioning. Overall, a pretty big update. Maybe in a few months I'll do another one. But for now, the biggest concern is QB Express. Issue #8 is due out in a little over a week, and the deadline for submissions is March 15th. So get those articles in!</p>

Those are excellent updates. I like the new zine layout I think it definitaly makes things easier to locate this way. Same thing for QB Express too. Excellent.
