<p><strong>My new goal: July 1st, 2004</strong> -- Posted by <a href="mailto:email@example.com">Pete</a> on June 28, 2004<br>
My new goal is to have this site ready to officially re-open on July 1st, 2004. And even if it's not completely done, it doesn't matter. That's the date I'm going to start announcing this site officially at all the QB news resources across the Internet. I'm hoping that everything works out and the visitors start pouring in.
<br>In the last week, I've made a ton of additions. The Downloads section, the QB FAQ, the Projects, the QB Philosophy section, some new headlines and even more have been added. Also, I went through a whole bunch of QBasic links archives on the Internet and put together perhaps the most complete collection of QBasic links available on the Internet right now. (There are over 400 on my list.) Of the 350 links in my old links section, I discovered that only 78 of them actually work. It's mostly because free web servers like Hypermart, Xoom, Angelfire, Geocities and Tripod have either deleted or deactivated all of the old and unupdated QB sites, and as a result, they're no longer available. It's sad to see so much valuable QB content disappearing from the Internet at such a fast rate. If you need any proof that the QB Community is shrinking, I think that's the best indication.
<br>A few days ago, I spoke with WisdomDude (aka James Robert Osborne), who used to help me with this site quite a bit, and he gave me a lot of great suggestions on new and innovative sections I can add, including the QB Philosophy section and the Top Ten Programs (which you can see on the left). A big 'thank-you' to him for all of the advice!
<br>Allrighty... I've still got a lot left to do, and this time is better spent adding content than writing news that nobody can read yet anyway!</p>
