links to interesting places of the Net. Some relate to programming,
others don't. Some don't relate to anything known. In short: it's
all up to you; Exploration is the salt of this adventure called
"the Global Network" (insert here the tune from "Raiders
of the Lost Ark").
PureBasic is a native 32 bit and 64 bit programming language based
on established BASIC rules. The key features of PureBasic are portability
(Windows, Linux, MacOS X and AmigaOS), the production of very fast
and highly optimized executables and, of course, the very simple
BASIC syntax. PureBasic has been created for the beginner and expert
alike. In spite of its beginner-friendly syntax, experienced coders
will have no problem gaining access to any of the legal OS structures
or API objects and PureBasic even allows inline ASM. Really, a MUST
The DarkBasic (Pro and Classic) Website. Don't miss the link to
the forums ("Community"): they are an infinite source
of assistance and information for the beginner (and even for the
more advanced coder).
Two very good sites for the 3D artist; Tons of freebies, too !
Did you own an Amiga or an Atari ST ? Or a C64, a Spectrum, an Amstrad
CPC ? Or even a ZX81, a TI99-4A, or whatever antic of the same kind
? If you miss the games from this prehistoric era, this website
is for you !
Does Windows bug you (no pun intended) ? Don't anything work anymore
? Go see Doug ! You'll find thousands of hints to make your cohabitation
with your PC more pleasant. (well, maybe just less infernal...)
If french grammary looks more complex than ADA, and writing a correct
sentence seems harder than coding assembler with eyes closed on
a chinese keyboard, try "Le Conjugueur". And please forgive
us poor frogs.
The Codex of Mathematics. Everything on every subject, as long it's
about numbers and vectors.
If banging your head on a brick wall sounds fun to you, here are
two games you'll surely love. The first one, adapted from a Christopher
Manson book, is classic and elegant. The second one, well, doesn't
look as anything else. But they share the same property: they're
hard as hell !
Real good online comics, for Geeks, Nerds, and even Dorks. Which
kind of coder are you ?
Another online comic, about DDR (Dance Dance Revolution; did you
live in a cave for the recent years ?) . Superb style, suspense,
mystery, feelings, humor... An AAA comic !
