Outdated version of the BASIC programming language which came packaged with Windows version 3.1.
The language provided an easy way to create graphics, though limited to 4-bit colors and 640 by 480 resolution.
Although the "Q" stood for "quick" the only thing quick thing about QBASIC was the time to program. The language was interpreted, rather than compiled, severely retarding program execution speed.
The language is still adequate for novice programmers. However, learners who master the basics of QBASICS should graduate to Visual Basic, a much more flexible and faster language that inherited much of QBASIC's syntax.
"I've learned to program graphics with QBASIC but, finding the language too limited, made the easy transition to Visual Basic."

One of the greatest children's shows of all time.
A live action show with comic book characters produced in Japan in the late 1960s. It was dubbed into English and put into widespread syndication in the late 1970s in the United States.
An evil alien, Rodak, brings destruction to Earth by unleashing a series of giants monsters and legions of "Lugo men", men clad in black leotards who are almost capable of kung-fu. An old wizard, who follows Rodak around the cosmos, settles down inside a volcano where he creates a giant robot, Goldar, from the energy of the volcano. He also creates a feminine robot of human size, Silvar. A young Japanese boy--the son of a journalist--is recruited by the old man to help fight Rodak and his legions of monsters and Lugo men. He is given a whistle. Three blows signals Goldar, two signals Silvar and one blow signals Gam, a "mirror image" robot of himself (although he looks nothing like the protagonist). All three robots are capable of transforming themselves into rocket planes.
Also Known As: "Captain Magma" or
"Monsters From Outer Space"
Young Boy: Oh no! I am surrounded by Lugo men and a giant monster is destroying Tokyo!
(he blows his whistle once then three times)
Gam: I've just been signaled. I think I am needed to fend off Lugo men.
Goldar: And I have been signaled. I think I am needed to fight a giant monster.
Silvar: I'll stay home with the wizard and make sushi.

Dr. Evil: SILENCE, NUMBER TWO!!
(Number Two falls into a firy pit)
Number Two: AAAHHHHHH!!!
