Hey QBasic.com readers, I got an email in my inbox that I think you all might be interested in. Here it is:
Hello QBASIC (QBASIC).

Hopefully this contest has to do with BASIC, but I’m not sure. Enjoy!
Do any of you readers have some bright ideas about how to improve QBasic.com? I’m open to just about any suggestions, really. If this is as good as it gets…well, that’s kinda sad. There’s gotta be something that needs a fix or tweak or a completely new feature installed.
Also, if any of you readers are good writers, let me know. I’d like to have some people typing up editorials while news is slow, which it unfortunately seems to be 24/7. Leave a comment.
You guys do know how to leave comments, right?
