I don't think that it's an official site but, reading the site with
the conversion of http://world.altavista.com/, it seems very
interesting at least for the Carbon examples:

http://www.futurebasic.net/fb/fbcarbon.html

The two examples in this page are very interesting!

The UHconverter seems a competitor of the Toolbox Helper, I can't
test it because I can't understand the Japanese. I hope to see that
tool translated in English soon (also if it was developed with
another basic environment).

Also the http://rinbrand.hoops.jp/ site seems very interesting (great
examples) and I like very much the logo.

I don't know if they asked the permission to register the
futurebasic.net domain, it sounds weird to use a trademark as domain
name without any right to use it. Of course a domain like that needs
a translation in English, also if I know (for my experience) that
it's very hard to maintain a bi-language site.

Anyway, in my opinion, the FB's community needs more sites and more
tools like this.
