|Universal guide to Qbasic Internet Sites|
All QBasic internet sites, when viewed from a certain prospective, are about the same. Although some are more elaborate, some a bit faster, and some use so many animated GIFs that you run out of available RAM, a universal guide to navagating qbasic sites applies to all sites.
|Quality & selection of programs, speed of site, and overall quality of the site:|
|If the site has its own domain, it
is probably an expericened programmer who has seen many
programs and can make valid, trustable judgements.
However if the address is members.providername.com/username/qbasicsite,
one of two things is true.
(1) The webmaster is a newbie programmer who is lucky enough to know how to use hyper text and thinks a flikering, but thinks an animated, single line is a sign of pure excellence and superior programming skills. He/She incorporates a "Must Download" or "Must See" sign around such programs. (Be cautious when programs entitled "PSETEXAMP.ZIP" are labled a "MUST DOWNLOAD!")
(2) The webmaster is a highly advanced and experienced programmer who knows a good program when he sees one. The webmaster's programs are most likely of the finest quality and incorporate as many memory and speed saving tricks as known to mankind.
-Sadly, it is often difficult to quickly recognize
which of these may be true. Rest assured in the knowledge
that this particular site is of the latter and created
for the lover of fine things and a man of good taste.
|Overall structure of website|
