Quote@Patrice. Read the posts from Jim and find out if everything happens how he told us. (New Beta Program etc.).
QuoteI find it impressive to see how many turn their back so quickly. PowerBASIC has always met or exceeded benchmarks of 99% of the compilers out there. As everyone has been told, 64bit will be real. But do you really know what advantages 64bit gives you? Microsoft even recommends that you install Office as a 32bit on 64bit machines.I thank you Chris, your EZGui products are well written, and have helped us sell many products. And you are right, being a senior employee, I took over operations. I am an analyst, a programmer, and a teacher - learning marketing and trying to make the best decisions for PB have been a big challenge for me. Our site and phones have been down since 3:00pm Sat. We moved into a bigger office and have hired an on-site IT specialist, a marketing genius, and some more tech support personnel. We hope to have everything normalized in the next day or 2 (I hope today...) and when we get back to 100% we will be relaunching the beta forums for testing.I sincerely regret the difficulties all PBers have endured. We are continuing to make newer and better compilers. PB did not die Nov. 6, 2012. It was forced to change. Jim BaileyPowerBASIC Staff
QuoteThank you Chris, for explaining the different methods of programming. As there are many that like to use EZGUI, FireFly, PBForms, etc... I would also like to mention the fact that PowerBASIC is one of the only compilers that can use different GUI designers, different IDE - or editors, and create DLLs compatible with 99% of applications or compilers out there today.This forum seems to have taken to "suggestions" rather than asking question as to what may become of PowerBASIC. So please let me take a second to tell you that all suggestions that are made, in the forums, as well as email, are being cataloged and reviewed by our development department. New maintenance versions are on their way, and work is being done with regards to new major versions (with a path to 64bit).Any questions, please direct them to email@example.com, and I will do my best to explain the answers to you.Thank you all for your support,__________________Jim BaileyPowerBASIC Staff
QuoteThank you, Steve, we are working on many more aspects of Bob's visions. We still have our no-vaporware policy as to upcoming compilers and add-ons/tools. However Bob left us with a lot of ideas, and work...The first project is to get the .04 versions of our current compiler released. Hopefully this will be the last maintenance release for this version.Then we will be able to concentrate on the new compiler with new features.
QuoteIt is impossible for PB to compete with Visual Studio
QuoteI got a nice email from PowerBASIC explaining that a key staff member had been in an auto accident, fortunately not seriously injured, which caused them to be behind in their email and shipping. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt.
QuoteAs far as the website, web service providers go down, so that may not be their fault.
QuoteDespite all the challenges though, this does not mean they are not up to the task. It is only reasonable to expect them to take a year or so to figure things out. This is no overnight fix that can be done. They will likely make a few mistakes along the way and find out what works and what doesn't.
QuoteTo quote Bob Zale - "smaller, faster", that is what I want and need.
QuoteJim Bailey wrote that on 29 April. It is worth noting that we used to get notifications on PMs as well as activity on subscribed threads. Some folk may call by regularly but not log in so they will not be aware that a PM awaits them. I've had a few notifications from this forum in the last few days and it makes a world of difference.
QuoteAfter the second episode we were told of a marketing guy and an IT guy were joining.
QuoteSo will I, Guy, and I suspect many other folk will as well.
QuoteOn a new compiler version I usually part with my hard earned as soon as I am aware of their existence. This will not be the case in the event of new versions and I suspect that will be the case for many other folk as well. Now, that is sad!
QuoteBut do you really know what advantages 64bit gives you?
QuoteYes, i have read these, and the no vapor ware policy moto, is realy too handy to turn us to mute...
Quote from: Brice Manuel on September 10, 2013, 02:48:37 AMI wonder if it was the same key employee that was in an auto accident several years ago that supposedly caused the delay in the shipment of manuals that I ordered? This was the excuse I was given when I called to ask about the status of my order.
QuoteI have heard of people being unable to register on the forum because the confirmation email is not sent out and therefore you can't confirm your account. If this is still true, tech support is basically closed off to new customers.
QuoteI find that troubling. If I figure out they are outright lying I am done...
Quote from: Chris Holbrook on September 10, 2013, 11:59:45 AMEven with a new product or upgrade, a considerable quantity of doubt has been poured over the whole enterprise and people will be suspicious of the brand. Something must be done, and soon.
Quote from: Theo Gottwald on September 11, 2013, 07:36:27 AMIf there are people from florida overthere ... can't you just sit in the car, drive there and late rgive us a report on the new "Marketing" and "IT Guy's"?
