Well, is this the end?

Post by angros47 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:45 am

Ten years ago this site celebrated the fact that it was ten years old. Now, that announcement is still the most recent one: in the last ten years, nothing new has been done. So, I'd say that petesqbsite could be considered officially abandoned, and just an historical archive.

Qbasic will not even run full screen graphics on newer 32 or 64 bit machines. That was the end!

This site can still be used for many programmers using QB64 who need ideas or help.

Thank Pete for keeping it going unlike the many other QB sites long gone!

Can. But it isn't.

It is used for that. Otherwise, why would I be here?

You are correct that this website is just an archive at this point. Hardly anyone still programs in QBasic, ever since Windows fully moved on from DOS and QBasic wasn't properly supported.

But this website still does get a fair amount of traffic, all things considered.

The big tutorials archive is still the most used part of the site... lots of beginning programmers around the world still start on QB, believe it or not.

I plan to keep the site up forever, but will probably never do any major updates on it ever again.

Speaking of the tutorials and such, we should have a link on the Board to the main site.

Perhaps up in the Pete's site area up top...
