Description: The "THE MOST UNOFFICIAL QBASIC PAGE IN THE WORLD" created by Jason Straw, who was ten years old at the time.
Unique Features: This site offers a few programs via email: OOPSS!, SOLAR SYSTEM, A GUESSING GAME WHERE YOU BET MONEY (ADDICTIVE). Via email, meaning that you'll never actually get them.
- Eric Rhodes' QBasic Page
Description: Tiny site offering two large zip files with over 50 QB programs each. I don't know if they were originals or just redistributions of other people's freeware programs.
Unique Features: This site is worthless, because the links to both zip files are now broken.
Description: There's nothing here. In the "Programming" section, you'll see a very nicely-designed mock up of the QBASIC GUI in your browser that says "The purpose of this site will be to provide help to anyone with questions, problems, or issues regarding the BASIC language and the many branches it encapsulates."
Unique Features: Unfortunately, that's all there is to it. I searched for links or subsections...but there weren't any!
- My QBasic Page
Description: A site called "My QBasic Page" with absolutely no content whatsoever. Clearly generated with an automated web-based form, and completely lacking of anything useful in the slightest.
Unique Features: Mentions something about a "Family Reunion", and "if you'd like help call 123.123.1234." Also features a link to QBasic.com that won't load because it lacks the http:// prefix. Bah.
Description: A QB programmer by the name of DarkPagan who was working on an RPG called Colt's Quest, and two crime games called: Busker and Fugitive: The Streets of New York. Darkpagan had some cool, original ideas for these games and they sound quite interesting, though nothing ever came of them.
Unique Features: This site might have had quite a bit of content, but when I visited, every link on the site was broken except for the short News page. Too bad.
- Pete's Game Programming Page
Description: Formerly known as "Pete's QBasic Page" (yeah, another one), this QB site is just an empty site with a short message telling visitors "what's to come." Well, suffice to say, it never came. I don't want to sound vain, but not all Petes are created equal. :)
Unique Features: If you want to waste your time, go here.
Description: A QB downloads page that unfortunately linked all of its files on other sites that have since gone down or moved.
Unique Features: All the files here are from QBasic.com or Acid Works, and are no longer available at their old locations. The guy who made this site also thinks that the language is called QBasics with an "s". Not worth your time, unless you want to take a ride on the dead links express.
- QBasic Headquarters
Description: J.D. Hugger's QBasic Headquarters has unfortunately become a victim of free web servers.
Unique Features: This site has been completely deleted except for its opening "entrance" page. Will it ever return? It's HIGHLY doubtful. So why do I link to it? Hey, you never know. If FreeHomepages.com ever decides to restore the account, I'll be the first one with a link to it!
- QBasic Paradise
Description: Once a decent QB site, the QBasic Paradise shut down one day and posted this message: "THIS PAGE IS UNDER A REALLY HEAVY CONSTRUCTION! plz whait until the new page is up.. Well.. NOTE .. a problem have come in the way of the progress.. all downloads are gone! do someone have all the download files.. it would be really greatfull if you could send them trough my ICQ: 37692488. Under the middle time plz use our MSG Board.
Unique Features: There's nothing here. I don't know why I'm linking to this site. Honestly, it's a waste of my time and your time. Not even the message board works anymore (just another expired DiscApp.) Okay then. I'll stop wasting your time.
- QBasicly Easy
Description: Once a pretty decent site, QBasicly Easy went down for a massive revamp and a switch of webmasters...and stayed that way.
Unique Features: Here's basically the entire site now: a bizarre one-page message saying "HAIL RADITZ" and "IF YOU HAVE VISITED THIS SITE, YOU ARE ON THE BRINK OF THE GREATEST QBASIC SITE EVER, THE SITE IS NOW GOING UNDER MASSIVE RE-CONSTRUCTION, BUT STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER UPDATES."
- Ryan Heller's Homepage
Description: A simple, one-page site; home to a cool-sounding QB game called SlugWars.
Unique Features: When I went, the link to download SlugWars was broken. It's a shame, because this sounded really cool. Unfortunately, without that game available for download, this site has NO CONTENT whatsoever. I have to give it 0 stars.
