looks very pro, one thing i've noticed so far, is that you wrote that hex is base 12 ;p

Read the other replies and I thought I had to check it out myself and I must agree its an impressive start. This is exactly what I hoped to find when I was trying to learn FreeBASIC. I look forward to its completion. :)

Dude, you are a fricken mad-man. This is just what new FBers need. I can't wait until it's completion.

I too am anxious for completion, or even 'installments'

:D

Look great so far.

very nice, but PDF = bad, i'd go for a good old zip of HTML files and images :D

anyway, i'd recommend that all code examples be monospaced to set them apart from the rest of the text...

I think both formats being available after some time would be nice. I like PDF's now that I'm seeing them more and finally got used to the features. PDF's are so professional looking too :D

my biggest gripe is that images in PDFs always look like crap since they are never shown at their natural resolution

It's looking great so far, keep the good work.

How about changing the title to "Teach Yourself FreeBASIC in Three Days"? http://www.norvig.com/21-days.html :).
