QB Expo to Sign With Hulla-Balloo
(7/8/2000) Jeremy Hammond and QBShire have partnered up to give this year's QB Expo the perfect place to launch.
Jeremy Hammond (aka xec96x) is probably most noted in this QB magazine for his QB air combat game Shell Shock, which has rounded out the Top Arcade Games list at V Planet. But Jeremy also spends his time putting together hulla-balloo.com, a free service that allows people to read e-mail and make webpages. It would be a deal between QBShire and Jeremy that would make hulla-balloo.com the launch area for this year's world fair for Quickbasic Projects, the 2000 QB Expo.
Negotiations between QBShire and Jeremy began in June. When the V Planet site was experiencing problems due to the Fortunecity service, Jeremy offered our magazine a Hulla-Balloo account. We felt that V Planet has already become a closely-knit member of Fortunecities, so the offer was politely refused. But the refusal wasn't without temptation. Hulla-Balloo offers some great features: a nice, friendly, fast service, free e-mail service, and plenty of storage space for QB projects. It was the kind of stuff that would make updating webpages an absolute joy.
Just then, QBShire had the idea of launching the QB Expo site at hulla-balloo.com. The idea is that the Expo, which will host some of the newest and most promising QB games and coding groups of the year, will hopefully give some publicity to hulla-balloo.com. Jeremy Hammond then concurred, telling QBShire that hulla-balloo.com will be happy to host the 2000 QB Expo.
As part of the deal, people registered for the QB Expo will be happy to know that the QB Expo site will enjoy the speed of the hulla-balloo.com service. Also, Jeremy Hammond also gave the QB Expo an additional bonus by saying that the QB Expo site will be free of banners and other advertisements.
Interestingly enough, hulla-balloo.com is actually a faction of the loadedweb.com service, made up of the current number of individuals who are currently in charge of the QB Top 50. Theoretically, this makes the QB Expo part of one of the most unbiased (and therefore most appropriate) QB locations on the Internet. that being Hulla-Balloo.
With each coding group's project pages expected to be finished within the coming the weeks, the QB Expo is still expected to be launched this July.
