Thanks so much Paul. I was not very active anymore in the past few years but I learned a lot here (also from José of course). It is a pity that the forum will disappear completely. Is it possible you make a backup before you close, in case someone else wants to continue this?
Thanks again, Wilko

Here's to you, Paul, and I hope retirement is good to you.

I've watched WinFBE grow from essentially a text editor with a compile button and some great examples to a full-fledged Windows developer (with great examples). It will continue to be my go-to tool for making Windows programs.

Wish you the best in retirement!
Keeping the SQLitening forum going was also something you did not have to do.

Hi Paul

It is regretful that you have decided to close the forum.

You made programming possible for me with Firefly and WinFBX.
Your support was unrivaled in the industry.

I will sincerely miss you and your kind advice.
You and José took me from absolute zero, miles above where I ever thought I would be.
Thank you for that.
Now a new challenge awaits where to go for Hobbyists as the software industry is changing with unimaginable speed.

I hope you enjoy your retirement. May it be a great time to relax, do other things and learn a few new things.

May you be blessed.

-Peter

Hi everyone,

I recently retired and as part of this new life transition, I will be closing the PlanetSquires forums and pulling back from programming in general after a brief transitional period as outlined below:

April 14 to April 30, 2024: No changes.

May 1, 2024: The forum will become read only disallowing new posts and no new member registrations.

May 31, 2024: The forum will be removed.

Additionally, I will not be answering programming questions via email.

If there is anything on this forum that you would like to archive for your own purposes then it is imperative that you do so before May 31, 2024.

WinFBE will remain available via the GitHub repository and I may answer questions related to WinFBE via the FreeBASIC forum post for the WinFBE project if I happen to see the questions during my browsing. However, I will try to keep WinFBE up to date with the latest FB compiler releases.

Thanks,
Paul Squires
