    If I could have added telnet to my system way back when, I would likely still be running it. It ran smoothly and reliably. I still have a complete backup of the system as it was then. Circa 2001 or so.

    Oh, I have it all backed up on CD. The biggest problem would be to set up all my downlinks and uplinks again, along with several other changes <G> It took me a long time to get Sync working after changing over, and it will likely take
    some time to actually get the directory changes made, not to mention getting the telnet stuff to work. I'm using Taurus for my frontend for POTS calls and they are redirected to a telnet port. I dont know if I can make that work again in PCB <G> I may set it up again to run alongside Synchronet just to see.

    Maybe one day I give them a try. I may try them when I rebuild my
    server. I think I had trouble with netfoss a long while back. I think
    the issue was fixed with pcboard a while back.

    Netfoss a while back, I am going to say a couple of Years ago, had some problems, but It seems to have evolved and is running very well. Even
    wiping out some problems I had with other fossils that originally were
    working better. It might just be worth a try.

    Why would a PCBoard sysop care about "new"? CDC went belly up more than

    Hi Janis. I'm posting from Luis board ...

    I went back and re-read all the responses to Luis original post. The
    list of sysops running PCBoard is:

    Luis Silva
    Michael Luko
    Dane Beko
    me

    Total 4.

    Note to Luis:

    Dane Beko's (from Tucson USA) message showed up on Michael's board, but
    not here. It was dated May 19. And one of my replies posted here has
    not made it back across the Pond. I'm using PCBoard's internal FIDO
    which requires the R and S conference flags to be set for my upstream's
    ~FIDO~ user record. Don't know how it works with IREX though.

    Hi Guys,

    well i think we are more, some people with OS/2 also, but i did not make
    the list, soon i will.
    About Rex and messages, we are still tunning, is possible some lost
    messages during the tests, but now we have PCBoard 15.4 with fido, uucp
    and email using internal PCB tools and irex.
    So any help, let me know.

    As you can see above, PCBoard's reply quoter treats quotes as text when
    they are not separated from the text by at least one space. Maybe that
    is adjustable in the software you use.

    I don't think so. Not unless I try and modify the source code to
    WINServer 7.0's message editor. PCBoard is, as far as I know, the only
    BBS software that does this. But, as long as my messages get out,
    that's all that matters *smiles*. I didn't write Winserver -- I just
    run and beta test it. But, as I said, I will look at the source code to
    the message base editor, but doubt there is anything I can do with that.

    Not in WINServer's case. At least not on the system level. I believe
    this can be done on a USER level, but ONLY if the web interface is used
    (using the NNTP server of WINServer to reply to this message now).
