    Well this is odd, so I installed terminate on and XP box , and for grins I inputed a telnet address for a phone number , It connected to the bbs fine , but is has some graphical issues . butthe fact that it can connect to a bbs
    is odd when using a telnet address for a phone number . any how this is makes me want to really dig into terminate, I wonder if its more advanced for the time them I thought . any how it does work in dos box , and im going to play with this telnet thing to see what i can figure out .

    I am also experiencing some ANSI oddities, but for the most part it works fine. I do not know how Terminate's emulation would fair on animated ANSI.
