|Here it is (or at least a beta page) finally like I promised. This page is credited to the many visitor's who have submitted ideas and want to see their programs on a download page. Now, I will begin posting many games, demos, etc on this page for other visitor's to download. Please submit them in zip (if you can). I will eventually also have a section titled "Program of the Month" that will appear on the first part of this page (with a picture included). Put your innovative mind to work and send me some programs. Have a wonderful day. - SM|
It has been a long time since any content was updated on this website. I would like to sincerely apologize to my long devoted Qbasic fans. I lost access to Angelfire for many years, but I'm proud to announce that I finally was able to recall my hosting information.
Listed below is my new website. You will also learn about my story, the road I traveled, and why I left the Qbasic community. These days I am concentrating on web development and other things. Below is a picture of my website and the URL to visit it or on the picture.
Update: I will be updating a lot of the content on this website. To prevent throwing off my old school users, I will try to keep much of the original design. However I am planning to add the tabs you see on my new website so there will be access back and forward to both.
So please sit tight and get ready to experience a whole new world of development since I began this website back in 2001.
Finally I want to thank you so much for your patience and for my period of silence. I am back now and it is going to be better than it ever was. I promise.
You can click on the URL below to see the new Qbasic page there. Please leave me your feedback in the forums and I will respond. I would like to explain also that I was heavily attacked by spam back in the days and didn't get a lot of your messages. Anyway, just would like you to know everything is good now.
Below is a review that was done on my website many years ago. As I reflect back now and let this sink in I do realize that I was poor on web design. However I received a Bachelor's degree in 2011 in Web Development which resulted in the birth of my new website (as seen above).
I am hoping to generate the audience I had before and see what people have been up to these days. Also if you are still into Qbasic, let me know about your website and I'll post them here. Hint: This will greatly increase your web traffic and customer base since this is an "old-school" website. It generated a lot of interest back in the days when I worked on it. Although it is not pretty to look at, that will change over time.
Pete I want to thank you for the review and teaching me what I needed to learn about design. In return I have attached a backlink for people to visit your website below. I hope it reaps you the rewards that I will soon be enjoying.
As I explained above, I didn't want to change everything all at once or somebody may have think I was hacked. Over time, I will gradually implement new changes. Finally I am excited about this new journey and look forward to hearing from you soon.
