Oldies still around?
Wow this place still exists! I'm just poking around my old places. I haven't been here is well over 4 years. It's good to see that QB is still active. I haven't used it in years and probably won't use QB and might do some FB for basic game ideas.

Are there any other Oldies around from the 2001 to 2005 era? like whitetigger and who ever? I guess we all grew up and moved on.
Yeah, I remember you, Diroga. How have you been?

I haven't seen Whitetiger around the forums in years. He was a pretty young kid, so he must have found something more challenging than QBasic.

Some of the other guys have moved over to PetesQBSite or You won't find the heavy activity of those good old days. The fact that the majority of schools stopped teaching Basic recently, has had a negative effect on the posts at Basic sites.

So, what are you doing these days?

Regards..... Moneo
I have gone to colleges and life stuff. working and what not. I did some C/C++ ASM java here and there. I really dont program anymore. QBASIC was a very good start for me when i was 13. I learned the basics of programming even though i didnt do much with it. QBASIC can do some unexpected things from what i saw here. The 3D demos games were awesome. I cant remember the names but i never thought those games and graphics could have been done with an interpreted old language like QBASIC.

I saw Whitetiger in FreeBasic IRC channel a couple of years back. He did FIRST robotics in C iirc. Im guessing he moved on to university and is doing java or C#. smart kid tho.

I thought died. i know has great demos and programs on there but i never did the forums. I understand why QBASIC is not being taught anymore. I would suggest python for beginner programming. I guess QBASIC 4.5 > will die out some time in the distant future. Heck i still see basic books from the 70's still at googwill. I really hope FreeBasic picks up and starts competing with other proprietary basic languages.

I wish the best to everyone. dont get discourage or think anything is too duaghting and overwhelming. keep on learning, trying new things, keep the qb code coming!
Define Oldies? Wink

I don't know you...does that make not an oldie, or does that make me young?  LOL
hen they say it can't be done, THAT's when they call me ;-).

All about ASCII:
I gather you still like the Basic language. Forget FB and take a look at:

It is developed to extend Qbasic into the 64 bit world of PC's. It also adds better graphics and sound. So far it is a C compiler for QB code to run on new machines.

Get my QB demonstrator here:
lol @mystik

i'm kinda old i guess, depending on your perspective... so yeah, i'm pretty young. :p

how's it going guys?
... I'm not old.. o.o;

But I like the question, how many of the (people that have been here for a while) still skim through here? See Moneo, Mistik, and Dave so far =) (of the ones I knew).

I triped over this forum last night looking up articles, tons of memories came back of some of the wild activity that went on here in its heyday. It's cool to see at least three of the people I used to know on here are still around, though sad to see this place is no longer oozing with activity like it used to.  :-\

Yeah man... the old days... like, those 3d modeling challenges were great. That reminds me... I think I still have that light saber on disc here somewhere. Smile Any of you guys got any projects to spout about? It doesn't matter to me if it's BASIC or not... I'm just curious. Smile
On my end, just been playing around here and there when I have the chance. Rewrote the MP3 Renamer Tool I made a long time ago, only in C++ this time. Its weird and doesn't always work (It does have some fail safes to prevent renaming the file to jiberish, however). Wouldn't recomend use on the only copy of a music collection since it does have the power to delete files.
Link if you want to play with it:

Then for BASIC things, I've played around with engine physics for awhile:
Not the most curvy of power curves.. o.o; ..It works completely off bore/stroke/mass/etc.. There are no predefined torques lists lurking in the background of that applications. =)

Haven't done too many things in 3D for awhile, other than little things here and there, experaments, etc. And if I'm not toying with computer languages, I'm attempting learning human ones. I figure I know the basics of so many computer ones, curious to see how many human ones I can add to that list as well.  Smile .. Current task, Japanese.. o.o ..
