I see it is back up now. I had been doing some reading on the pros/cons of 
FreeBASIC vs QB64. Not looking to start a flame war here, but I had decided to 
invest some time with FreeBASIC when the site went down. I thought perhaps that 
was an early portent that I had picked the "wrong" compiler. I see that Black 
Annex is probably written with QB64 

Does anyone have any experience or tips working with the DOS version of 
FreeBASIC in FreeDOS that they'd like to share?

If not, thanks for humoring me this far in the thread.
