Six Word Stories

I just made a new website -- stories told in just six words. http://www.sixwordstories.net Inspired by Ernest Hemingway's story... "For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn." It's really taken off in the last 24 hours. Front page of Reddit, featured on StumbleUpon, the blogosphere, etc. -- 20,000 hits! Let ...

Sorry for the QBE #30 delays

QB Express will come out SOON. Apologies! I got back from my trip through Asia a few weeks ago and have spent the holidays relaxing, visiting friends, and NOT thinking about QB. Some things are higher priority than QB Express, I guess! But rest assured, the next issue will be a good one and will be ...

Ooh, sorry about that. I'm actually making a new Freebasic sub-section of this site that is going to have a dedicated FB tutorials page. (Coming SOON.) That's why I removed the Freebasic heading from the old Tutorials section...I want to remove the FB specific tutorials from the QBasic tutorials. Th...

This chatroom has been shared between QB sites for over ten years:

Maybe use that one with an upgraded chat client?

Hey Lachie, you should really add a <title> to the QBGD... without it, the site won't show up in any search engines! (Or your ranking is really really really low.)

I'm using 1024*600 on my Eee PC. :)

Hey Lachie and Mark -- the QB Games Directory is still having problems. If I enter through http://www.qbasic.com/games all the links in the sidebar are broken, but I get no malware alert errors. If I enter through http://games.qbasic.com/ I still get a malware warning, AND the link to the main site ...

Cool, it's off to a good start! Still, I'm not sure how many RSS feeds you're going to find around the Qmunity, because hardly any of the sites are still updated... One issue I noticed is that there are some duplicate news get repeated, because I post the same news on both my site and QBasic News. (...

On another note, did you know that http://games.qbasic.com sets off some type of anti-malware warning in both FireFox and Chrome? I emailed Lachie about it a while ago, but he seemed uninterested in fixing the problem. Maybe this has something to do with your webhost? Warning: Visiting this site may...

The Freebasic place is based on Drupal, that's obvious. Joomal is a good CMS too. Anyone have any suggestions on which to use, or other scripts? I don't have any experience with Joomla, but I found Drupal to have too many features and too overly-complicated when I played around with it. I think big...

That sounds great -- though personally, I hate the setup and layout of the N54 forum. It's really outdated, hard to read, and I hate the fact that you can't register. I think we should probably bring this discussion to the Network54 users and see what they think. QBasic.com belongs to them a whole l...

I definitely understand about preserving the QB forum since the forum at N54 has been around forever, but I guess I was just thinking of what might happen when there's another "Zip" that comes along and does something to ruin it. Ahh, gotcha. Well, if all the people on the N54 forum would agree to ...

By the way, I think #1 is the best option -- the QBasic Portal. To illustrate it better, here are examples of what I mean: The NEWS FEED consolidates RSS feeds from all the sites in the Qmunity (we could use Yahoo Pipes to do this very easily, or do it server-side). Each post references which site i...

Well, if QBasic.com is ever going to get a good ranking on search engines again, you HAVE to get rid of those spam links. It would still be #1 otherwise. On a side note, I don't think that we should create a NEW forum at QBasic.com -- it should continue to link to the Network54 forum. The N54 forum ...

Well, for me, the reason why this is important is because it's QBasic.com. If this was http://www.marksqbasicsite.com or http://www.qbasicmark.com or some other personal/undesirable domain name, it wouldn't matter. He could let it sit there idly and die for all I care.

Yeah, it's really a shame that Mark has the QBasic.com domain name. There are dozens of people who could have done better things with QBasic.com, and it just so happened that Mark lucked into registering it on the day it expired. It's not like Mark had any track record in the QB scene -- he was a 16...
