Yeah back in 2000-2001 I wasn't in the Qmunity too much, I was online, I've seen all these websites ... but QB wasn't part of my languages....I had it but didn't really use it and wasn't really involved in any community activities per se.
However, There's one website closing that affected me in such a way that it sent me even further away from the QB scene. The first was chronologically, the first was Pete's QB site and the main reason was it had so much info on it even at the time. When I couldn't find it no more, any information wasn't too obvious to come by. I didn't really know about QBasicNews back then because I wasn't really looking for forums at the time, just website that had contents I went from the QB top 100 list and clicked on the websites to see what they had
. they all had atleast some contents but Pete's Website just seemed to have it all.
When I came back "officially" in the QB scene, I was glad to find out Pete's QB Site was still around...found out by accident really, I just decided to click on it just to see and it happened to work and noticed in the news section that Pete was making a comeback, woohoo
. I was also glad to see that the website that had all the common compilers available once was available again too. And very glad that the All Basic Code was taken over and available again
. Then I found out that QBasicNews existed through a search that had no relation to forums. Is searched for QBasic reference I was looking for online books really and it brought me to the online QB manual there was at QBasicNews then I started peeking into the forum to see what was going on
EDIT: And now, you're all stuck with me.....muhuhahahahaha
There you have my answer now
