@Lachie;
Please forgive my ignorance but how can I add myself to your map? I can see your location and photo, I logged in with my Gmail account, but I cannot add myself.

Very nice idea btw, thanks.

Found QBasic on a computer in a dusty storage room downstairs. I had been playing Humbug (a text adventure) and some other one with a circus. I loved them and my friend only occasionally pulled me away to go surfing across the street. One day, browsing DOS for any other games, I ran QBASIC. At first I was bored, but somehow I figured out what it really was. When I realized I could actually start making my own text adventure, I was inspired. Programming was fun!

My friend always thought I was stupid for liking it. It classed me as a geek to him, I think. With the help of my mom I got a Qbasic website up called Blue Castle Productions, with a BB and chat, and a team of around 5 QBers. We had a lot of fun but never finished anything. Gopus, John Millard, and I apologize to you who's names I can't remember, if you ever read this.

Started about 15, now I am 27 in June. So glad to have Freebasic.

I just tried to add my name, after logging in with gmail. I saw the add button after pressing edit, but then was presented with a list of options like restaurant, Hotel, B&B etc. Nothing related to FB. So I backed out without saving the point.

Click Edit button in left pane, find your place in the map (you may zoom to make it more precise), right-click the position in the map, put your Age/Website/etc, then click Done in the left plane.

I clicked the edit button on the right the first time, which is why I ended up in the wrong window, with options to edit the underlying map.

LEFT Edit button worked.

Thanks,

Hello to all,

I'm a 37 years old man from the netherlands.

I started programming in Atari Basic on a Atari 600XL machine back in the 80's

I have been using FreeBASIC for about 2 years now.

Hi everyone,

I'm from Canada / Montreal and is 47 years.

I started programming for fun around 1982 under a Radio Shack COCO II and made about 20 programs/games at that time.

I still have the little baby and it's still functionnal but i don't really miss those peek & poke days.

In 1986, i switch to QuickBasic and build my own libraries and screen/Database management.

I had over the years to put programming aside but came back to it a few years ago.

I made a lot of research and analysis and decided to go with freebasic.
I must say I am very happy with my decision.

I have joined the freebasic community in 2009 and I have put myself back in programming since during my spare time.

Thank you all for the support you gave me so far.

Oh My God!!! (huge surprises here)
Anyway I'm 51. Live in Somerset, U.K. I'm a computer network engineer and have been a communications engineer all my working life. Cut my teeth on B.A.S.I.C. because that's all there was around, in 1976. Tried the Commodore Vic, TRS80, UK101 (who remembers those?), finally built myself the Transam Tuscan, a Z80 machine, followed by the Texas Instruments Cortex; the worlds first 16 bit Colour (yes 16 bit AND colour) kit computer, based around the 9900 chipsets - a magic machine!. Have done some Assembler (Z80 and x86). Recently given up online shootemups and enjoying reviving my old love Basic. I want to be able to write BASIC programs to monitor my comms equipment, and log and graph errors, datarates, etc.

I'm 19 and I've only recently begun to use FreeBASIC. It's pretty sweet, and I like how it feels like a C-style BASIC.

I'm 26 and I'm from Sweden.

My first computer experience was Pong when I was 4. I only remember the TV screen.
My first PC was a 166mhz Pentium, playing Monkey Island and Indianer Jones.

I started with BlitzBasic in 2002 or something and realized FB was more my thing.
