BlitzBasic Code Archives coming to SyntaxBomb
« on: June 20, 2017, 12:12:24 AM »
Great news!!!

I've had written permission from Simon ( Skidracer ) to mirror the Code Archives from BB to here ;D

I have to whip up an app to convert and plonk the relevant info into our DB but it shouldn't be too much of a chore to do. I'll test in an offline location to make sure my code doesn't screw up all the forums  :P
Until the next time...

Cool,
Are you going to host them here in a way that they keep their structure and we can add to them over time?

The archives will be integrated into these forums directly which means that members can add new ones and also comment on the old ones.

Sounds good.
There's at least one thing I was planing to use from there.

Qube's looking for that top-poster money by adding 500 new topics at once...

The code archive is PD so there is no permission needed to bring it anywhere.

I'm still exempt from that :P

This may be true for the actual code marked as public domain but I wanted permission for the comments / contributions that were made by members in the same threads. Plus I'll be using the same layout and referencing the original authors and commenters and posts will be in the same order as on the BB forums.

This is why I asked Simon for permission to mirror the code archives as they will reflect in a very similar manner to what they were on the BB forums. I'd rather not have to fire money in my business lawyers direction if I can help it for stepping on anyones toes ( sorry Michael but your charges are worse than mine :P ).

There are no charges :) - I was just saying that if I went ahead and copied the BB code archives then I may get a letter from BRL's solicitors which means I have to ask Michael ( my solicitor ) to deal with it. As he charges per breath I'd rather take the nicer approach and simply ask permission. Thankfully, Simon said that is fine which is good of him and good for us all :D

Quick question:
Skid already released (.zip package) both code-archive and image gallery.
IIRC code-archive were PD (there was a message/checkout when you updloaded a source code).

So - technically - they are 'free' without needs of permission of author or BRL

I'm talking about the 'code-archive' (source code) not of course of comments.

Btw, I was toying around to make an online version.. but at this point I will stop my efforts to see your results!
If there's a problem, there's at least one solution.
