It's kind of funny that with VB officially dead (2005) and buried (2008) we have people still playing around with Clan of the Cave Bear (DOS) tools like QB and FB.
The irony comes in with web sites that are entirely GUI, have RSS feeds, and other stuff that tired old QB must look at like flying cars from the Jetsons.
Of course you won't see me lining up to use that .Net crap myself. I keep hoping it will die and we'll get a new and decent Windows Basic compiler from Microsoft. I wanted to love FB but it is such a pile of 1982 that I can't even be bothered to download newer versions.
Things are so bad I start to wonder if we shouldn't make a tombstone for Basic. R.I.P.
