The Future of BasicX

Started by Chris August 3, 2004
To All, We at NetMedia are actively working on newer versions of both
the BasicX hardware and software.

After an extensive review of the BasicX product line coupled with
input from "you" our users we have shifted BasicX into a new gear.
Our new goal is to provide more robust hardware and a easier to
use development environment while maintaining 100% backward
compatibility.

We have a big job on our hands and this is where we can use "your"
help. We are looking for group moderators, writers, and programmers
to help us in the following areas: 1. BasicX Yahoo group moderators. We need a few people that would be
willing to approve messages from new members and filter out the trash.
These are the guys that keep the spammers and trouble makers out of
your group.

2. BasicX emulator open source leader/leaders. We would like to remove the
"Compile for VB" functionality from the next BasicX development environment
and turn it into a stand alone BasicX emulator program. These individuals
would
be responsible for taking our current VB6 source code and developing it into
an
open source project.

3. Software programmers to contribute to the open source BasicX emulator.

4. BasicX Application note writers. We are always looking for BasicX
application
notes. App notes really help the newbees get over the learning hump. We will
probably
hold a monthly contest with group members voting to determine the winners.
Winners
would receive free BasicX hardware. So get writing! Any interested persons should contact me directly. Thank you, Chris

Personnal I would like to see a BasicX with more RAM
and ability to read and write to flash card, or USB
pen drives.

You also need to start working on accessories for the
BX24 things like a video module, USB connector, etc

Next I would really really really like to see a BX24
with SitePlayer capabilities. Can we have this one
please? This would really really solve a lot of
problems.

Please Chris, don't tell me that you are dropping support for VB6! It
is the sole reason I am using the BasicX series. The editor in VB6 is
either very user friendly or I am just very comfortable with it. It
is also used by a very large number of programmers.

I have a project right now for 10 BasicX 24s and if successful many
to follow.

Thanks,

Craig,

Sorry, maybe I was not very clear on our intents.
We are not dropping support for VB6. We only wish to
remove the compile for VB6 emulator from the current
editor and turn it into its own stand alone application. Chris

The current BX24 can read and write to compatcFlash cards. It's just
synchronous serial. On Aug 4, 2004, at 10:28 AM, Raymond Irving wrote:
