Welcome to rubbermallet.org
This is my (who? ) home on the
internet. I spend a lot of my time programming software, and most of that
is in the (ancient) QuickBASIC IDE and compiler for DOS-compatible operating
One would wonder what I could possibly do with those that would be useful today. Most of my QB programming involves writing TCP/IP-enabled DOS applications. This, obivously, lets me get those old (or even new with a DOS boot) machines online and hopefully doing something useful or at least interesting. I can't get myself to trash any computer, no matter how obsolete it may be.
Some of the programs that I have written in QB so far include an IRC client, a web server, among others. At the present, my main project for the last few months has been a DOS-based IRC server. It's requirements are minimal, and can even be run on an 8088 with acceptable performance! I also make available for download my skeleton QuickBASIC v4.5+ source code for creating your own TCP/IP-enabled programs, if you wish. Go ahead and take a look at my software index page to browse and download my programs.
I also have a forum here for discussion and help related to software I write, and QuickBASIC programming in general. Click here to jump to the forum! If you wish to contact me directly, just go to the contact page.
Every piece of software you find and download from here is 100% free. Have fun, and help me keep QuickBASIC alive and well!
