QB Express #10 Submissions

Post by Pete » Sun May 15, 2005 2:56 pm

Issue #10 Deadline: May 25, 2005

Send your submissions to: pberg1@gmail.com

So far, I've got the following submissions:
  • ARTICLES / TUTORIALS:
  • The BASIC User's Guide to English Spelling and Grammar - DrV
  • Commercial and Professional Software Development Parts 3 & 4 - MystikShadows
  • The Art of Data Validation - MystikShadows
  • Proper Error Management in FreeBasic - MystikShadows
  • So What The Heck Is Fun Anyways? - Deleter
  • QBasic GUI Development - Jacob Palm

    LETTERS:
  • aetherFox
  • Nitro2K1
  • MysikShadows
  • Jacob Palm
(I'm not gonna bother listing the things that I'm "waiting on" anymore, since I haven't really kept track of them lately, plus I will invariably forget some articles, and then list articles people no longer plan on writing.)

So... get to work! Ten days until the next issue, and I barely have anything yet! If you've got any questions or comments, you can PM me or email me.

ok. now you have one more article. :) I have a game in the works that I started about 3 years ago and finally found on an old floppy. It might be ready for the qb 11 but we'll see.
EDIT: hmm, i missed my name :oops: well, i did at least send you a revised edition of what you already have. :\

Do you think an article on time-based motion would be helpful? I could write it up in a day, easily, but it wouldn't be until next weekend probably. (Or Thursday.)

Nah, I added your article after you sent it to me. :)

Sounds great! I'd love to run it if you have the time to write it. If you can't get it done for Issue #10, you can submit it for Issue #11.

Well, I was just thinking of what I could contribute that hasn't already been done, and time-based motion is something a lot of game programmers SHOULD be using but aren't. It's a lot easier with FB than it was with QB, mostly because you can have high-precision timing without loading in extra stuff(because TIMER in FB is more precise than in QB).

I might write a small article on hacking so webmasters can protecy themselves.

Btw, I am eventually going to hack into petesqbsite.com and qbasicnews.com and tell them about the security holes since the qmunnity is suffering majorly due to hacking.

Could I, if you like, for the next (not this one), write a short piece about qbinux and some source? Just to get some ppl to help along the way, maybe making it THE quickbasic gui??

Sure. Just don't overload your article with source code.

Everyone -- there's been a serious lack of submissions so far for Issue #10.

I know this issue is coming only half a month after the last one -- but that doesn't mean it has to be so lacking. If you're at all interested in writing, DO IT.

The deadline is just FOUR DAYS AWAY.
