GETTING THE FANZINE

Website

The Basix Fanzine: http://come.to/basixfanzine

The "Basix Fanzine Interactive Library" at GeoCities has been taken down. The site no longer exists at all and may soon be reoccupied by somebody else.

Newsgroups

The Basix Fanzine is posted when it is released to alt.lang.basic, alt.lang.powerbasic, comp.lang.basic.misc and microsoft.public.basic.dos. If you want it posted to any other BASIC newsgroups then please let me know.

Mailing List

To get the Fanzines as they are released, join Tony Relyea's mailing list by sending an email to the new address of fanzine@vt.edu with subject "subscribe basix-fanzine". This mailing list is completely separate from the Basix Fanzine so I cannot accept responsibility for any emails you do - or don't - get when you join the mailing list.

USEFUL BASIC NEWSGROUPS

 

GETTING HOLD OF BASIC

QBasic is free and available on DOS disks (versions 5.0 and up), the Windows 95/98 CDROMs, and within http://www.microsoft.com/windows/download/olddos.exe

You can order new and used copies of QuickBASIC, PDS 7.x, VBDOS, etc. online at http://www.wdn.com/ems/oldtools/ms.htm and http://www.provantage.com

And you can buy PowerBasic, FirstBasic and other products from http://www.powerbasic.com.

If you want to compile very few programs which have been made using QBasic, and don't want to shell out $110 for PB, you can pay $5 a time for compiling at http://members.aol.com/qbasicnow. Email qbasicnow@aol.com for more information on this.

QB4.5 can be also be downloaded illegally from various websites. The Basix Fanzine does not accept responsibility for any damage caused to your computer or your life through downloading illegal software.

If you know of any other compilers or would like to advertise yours here, send an email to basix@dewarr.globalnet.co.uk, or post a message on one of the BASIC newsgroups and hope that I see it.
