Tonight I added about thirty more QB links to the links section, all with banner images and ratings. Also, a few weeks ago, I purged all of the dead links from the links section with the generous help of mennonite. But rather than rewrite the whole story, I'm just going to quote the news brief from QB Express where I explained everything:<br><br><blockquote><b>Mennonite's "No Broken Links" Project</b><br>QB Express contributor and member of The QBasic Forum (QBasic.com), mennonite, has begun a project to end the problems of broken QB links on the Internet. Recently he launched <a href="http://www.angelfire.com/electronic2/mennonite/feat/nobroken.htm">this site</a> and began reviewing the links pages of QB sites, searching out both the working and the broken links. He has done four sites so far, and hopes to finish 100 links pages by the beginning of 2006. According to mennonite: "the premise is, there are far too many dead qb links online. While it isn't possible to fix them all, it's my hope that this page will put a more than just noticeable dent in the problem."<br><br>Already mennonite's project is starting to work. This month, he has helped me take care of the broken QB links on Pete's QB Site. In the year since I created my 350 QB links archive, nearly 50 of them have gone down (which should give you a picture of how fast QB sites go down). He searched through my links section and sent me a list of all the dead links so that I could easily bring the section up to date. Hopefully other QB site owners will welcome the help he hopes to provide and the dead QB links epidemic will begin to subside.</blockquote></p>
