PCopy! #30
@Skyler: What comes for my writings at PCopy, youre free to use them in any way you want to. Articles, images, etc. by others are made by them and i only have permission to use those in PCopy so i cant say anything about them.

PCopy covers, atleast tries to, every BASIC dialect. There is over hundred of them. Any dialect is not more important than others. FB and QB are in same line than every other dialect.

I understand frustration of Lachie but i also know peoples who wonders why every tutorial this far is written in FB and other dialects has ignored totally. There is peoples who wonders why their favorite dialect is not mentioned in any way at all.

Collecting latest cool projects from QB/FB community is easy for person like Pete who had magazine for only these two dialects. Now we have full work to get atleast latest compiler updates from over 50 different compiler websites.
Same time there is nearly 50 abandoned and not updated compiler websites what we are tryin to follow do they come back alive or are they totally removed from web.

I cant give up of following whats happening with BASIC compiler A just to make sure that everything interesting around BASIC compiler B is included on next issue. Would that be unfair and against what reads at top of PCopy "PCOPY! covering all the BASICs...?

There is also still lots of poeples in these two communities who connects us to certain unpopular person and in hes actions eventho we have clearly statet that we dont have anything to do with him.
So number of contributions beside of few friends has been nearly in level zero. But we do believe that in time things gets easier.

And because of personel and real life changes, we havent organized so good yet. Now Hartnell follows few sites and lets us know if something is goin on there. Thats two bookmarks i can remove from my "check before next issue" list.

We also got two proofreaders who works to make our articles as in better english. That gives bit more time for us too.
Also new style is presented in next issue. Im 100% sure that 90% of readers is gona like it. Its a mixature of old and new.

I believe that step by step we are gettin better and better all the time. Creating an magazine that covers as many BASIC dialects as possible is a huge job. After every issue, we have more skills to do it and better "organization" there to help us.

Yeah, nick changed from lurah, but bullshit's are the same.
