Message #10182 "QuickBBS" (RECEIVED) Date: 12-Apr-88 14:46 From: Claude Warren To: Barron Featherston Subj: Re: Doorware Conference

Barron,

I was not attempting to yell at you. I guess it was just that everyone expected to have the editors included in the release. As far as I know Adam does not want to show faveritism and so will not include the full screen editors in any package. Sorry if I looked like I was yelling at you. It was unintensional.

However, I thought that you might like to know that SHEDIT will be released soon. I am supposed to have the docs done by Wed so I would look for it by the end of the week.

Ok, I will keep an eye out for it. Since I run a Stand Alone BBS It would help if you could give me some phone numbers of BBSes where I could get it. When QBBS 2.00 came out I only had 3 numbers where I could get it and I only had access on 2 of them. needless to say the 2 I had access to were busy all day long! & The 3rd one would only give new users 5 min and 10k per day. Made it a might difficult to DL the QBBS files!

As for thinking you were yelling, When you CAPATALIZE almost every other word like you did it tends to convey the impression of anger. Sorry I missunderstood. Barron C. Featherston — QuickBBS v2.01 (Alpha v0.00) * Origin: QuickBBS Support Board, Arvada, CO, (303)423-3114 (1:104/24)

Per our phone conversation last evening, I am going to go back to the Beta version of EchoGen and see if that solves the problem with the lastread pointers.

It only seems to be messing up after tossing new echomail.

I hope 200 people don't beat me to answering this, but…

To force QuickBBS to exit to the batch file, you need to use the -e option; for instance, to re-log the user after he/she has left the BBS and wants back in, you need a line like "QuickBBS -R -E0" in your batch file.

At least that's the way it works on *my* system.. but I only have v1.00 … anyone know where I can get an update? <eyebrow wiggle>

This is the first of any problems I have heard about SHEDIT and QuickBBS getting along. Simply place SHEDIT.EXE in your QuickBBS directory and enter SHEDIT.EXE as the message editor string in QCONFIG. You should be all set once you do those things!

The correct errorlevel statement I use in DOS is this:

IF ERRORLEVEL 1  GOTO START

The equals sign (=) may have been causing the problem.

Message #10682 "QuickBBS" (RECEIVED) Date: 14-Apr-88 05:59 From: Daniel Segard To: Adam Hudson Subj: Message Data Base

   (For only being a user of QuickBBS and not a QuickBBS sysop, I sure do

ask alot of questions don't I?)

It used to be under 1.02 that when the user did a Type 22 check for personal mail it would show all messages that were marked as being new since the last session. Now it seems that once the user has read his mail at the beginning of the session the switches are set off and the Type 22 no longer works. As I recall on Version 1.02 the Type 22 could be run successfuly as many times during the session as the user wanted. Now it can only be run once (assuming that the user didn't read the mail when he first logged in.) My personal preference would be for the new msgs to stay marked during the entire session as they do in TBBS. Another option might be to add a question to Type 22 asking the user if he wants to see the previously recieved mail as well. But if you do that you might add the "Starting at msg number:" prompt as well. Just suggestions.

There seems to be a problem with the user's last message read pointer. I can log in here and recieve a bunch of new messages, read them, but then when I go to read the rest of the messages in those areas QBBS will report "No New Messages". Then I go to look for the last message that I really did read and it will be 100 messages back in the base. I'm not sure what the problem here is, but I can offer some ideas. Perhaps the pointer gets set as the user reads messages? So that if the pointer is set at 4000 and the user read a new msg at 6000 when he does a Read New it starts scanning at 6000 instead of 4000 as it should. Maybe? This would cause problems for the user switching areas instead of doing a Read of combined boards (area 0). Or perhaps the pointer is not getting set correctly when the message base goes through its nightly pack and renumber? Any ideas? — QuickBBS v2.00 * Origin: The Cyber-Zone: (303)860-0126 (1:104/61)

Well, I just tried this on-line after I read this message and had no troubles adding a user and no Run Time Errors. I don't have alot of the problems that others are reporting. The only 2 problems that I have are with the lastread message pointers and with upgrading a user's access while he is on-line, i.e., the user is logged off about 2 minutes later and upon looking at his record with useredit, it shows 300+ minutes used.

Bob, you arn't the only one with that problem. I've been working with Chris Brown here in Waco and he's run across the same exact problem with the same exact error message. What's really strange however is that he had V2 up and running for about 3 days prior to this happening. Now we cant get it to come up at all under V2 and have had to fall back to V1.02.

What I suspect has happened in Chris's case is that one of the files that got converted either didn't convert properly, or that he ran a version 1.02 program such as UEDIT on a version 2 USERS.BBS file.

   OOOPS!  I released SHEDIT with some bugs that I hadn't detected.  They

are fixed now and any of you that have had trouble with SHEDIT kicking you off, that problem should be fixed as well. The new version also supports the IBM's extended keys ( the cursor pad ) as well as makes an attempt to handle the VT-100 arrow keys in remote mode ( I have not had the chance to test this but it should work <BIG GRIN> ). Please feel free to complain and send your comments to me. Either though this Echo or by NetMail ( 1:104/63 ). I cannot reply to everyone so please be patient, but be assured that your message has been read and heeded.

   One, SHEDIT was developed using PC-DOS v3.3.  Two, since it runs on

MS-DOS v3.3 I will assume that the gentelman claiming that SHEDIT wont run on MS-DOS v3.3 is not running on standard hardware.

I've had it happen on One ocassion, a user did indeed answer Yes to the

full screen editor (even though I had written a rather strong message in my new user file stating NOT to use the full screen editor), what it did was stayed in the editor until I arrived to see it was down, after I locally exited the editor and it noticed the carrier drop and ran back to binkley and set up properly.

I do have a solution although I havn't done it yet (got busy), but what I

might try is have two config files, one of them will have my editor dos command string, the other will not. What I'll do is when I hit my F1 key in binkley before going to local Quickbbs (ala Quickbbs -L), I'll rename my appropriate config files so that it'll read locally with the editor, and remote users will not get the editor option. I don't think this will cause a problem that I know of, I've yet to try it though.

I must have remembered the way that it worked incorrectly. It would be nice if it did just Mark the msgs like TBBS does so that they can be refered to multiple times.

When doing a Read Selective on From, To or Subject, Quick starts with the very first message in the area and starts scanning forward. It would be nice if the user could narrow the search a little by putting in the msg number to start the scan at.

And my recurring wish: it would be nice if the Editor commands included A>gain so that the msg being replied to could be viewed again with out saving the msg first. — QuickBBS v2.00 * Origin: The Cyber-Zone: (303)860-0126 (1:104/61)

What seems *really* odd to me is that I never had version 1.02 up – hence, I've never run convert. My board is in the very early stages of creation. Was following along in the doc file, after running the config program, creating menus, etc. Got to the point where it says 'Power it up for the first time.' But I've never been able to get it going. I thought that maybe the system couldn't find the config file, so I copied to each and every directory (just to be sure), but still get the same run-time error. ARRGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!

To my knowledge the Z on the end of the string will reset everything you just told the modem. This could cause the modem to NOT answer the phone, being that the default for S0 is 0.

Hi Adam!

  Well, I'm just about ready to switch my board over to QuickBBS but am

having one small problem before I can turn it loose. For the life of me I can't get BBSLIST to run for me. I have tried to get it to run with a type 7 and a type 15 exit but am getting the same results in either case. The board goes out to either shell or exit but it always comes back to the QuickBBS menu. I have placed the BBSList file in the QuickBBS directory and have entered on the menu line a type 7 with BBSLIST.EXE 2400 (just to test at that speed). It just comes back to the menus. I have successfully gotten the TODAY (semi-door to work) but, just can't seem to figure out BBSlist. Is it me or is it the 1.02version of the BBSList? (Probably me). I'm running out of ideas to try to get it to work. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

  Hoping soon to have it figured out and up and running (with registration

fee soon to follow).

 Thanks in advance for your help.

Message #11256 "QuickBBS" (RECEIVED) Date: 12-Apr-88 14:30 From: Terry Parker To: Adam Hudson Subj: Re: MENUS

How about an ability to call a menu and pass it a parameter?

For instance, instead of doing a type 2 menu call, you could do (for example's sake) a type 45 and pass it the menu name and another piece of data, as in "MSGSMENU 23". Then, in the menu, have a special character designated as the "variable" to represent whatever data is passed to that menu. For instance, you could use CTRL-B (since CTRL-A is already taken) and place it in the Optional Data area (along with anything else, but in this example, I'll just use the CTRL-B by itself). Whatever data was next to the menu name i this type 45 call would be substituted for all CTRL-B's found in that menu.

This would make it a heck of a lot easier for creating all those message area R)ead, P)ost, S)can, etc… menus. You could make a generic one and pass it the board number. Ideally, you would have at least a couple of these variables, and they would work like a dos batch file. Maybe 3 of them (I would think that would be enough to handle most things) and use ctrl-b,ctrl-c,ctrl-d to represent the data passed to the menu in the Optional Data area.

This would cut my number of menus at LEAST in half and make it a whole lot easier to maintain and make changes to the message areas. — QuickBBS v2.00 * Origin: Þ The Devil's Advocate Þ 919-848-0901 Þ 2400 Baud Þ (1:151/117)

I will be more than happy to help anyone in the Columbus area after the 17th. I am tied up by to tight deadlines at work and I must have them done by this weekend. I'm still trying to figure out how. I went out tonight for a couple of hours just to clear my head and grasp hold of reality again before I get pulled back under tomorrow. Give me a holler anytime after this weekend, my board is up 24 hours/day normally, and can be reached at (614) 476-4967. I will say this though, I would give serious thought to converting from whatever you are running now to anything else. For what my opinion is worth, the whole BBS software game over the last 7-8 months has been to see who can come out with the mostest first and as a result, we, the Sysops of the world, are having to suffer through bugs that are the result of hurrying to be first. I know this is probably not the kind of message that everyone wants to see in this echo, but like I said it is my opinion, based on my experience. There may be others out there in modem land, and I'm very sure there are, who love QuickBBS and wouldn't use anything else. Well, wait till the first time they have a mail bundle tossed 4 times before they catch it. (Happened to me today) Then have to go back and kill all the duplicates manually because the killdups function doesn't seem to work properly. I know this may sound crazy but it did happen and I hope to get a message in here to Adam Hudson sometime tomorrow with details. I am honestly about ready to trash the idea of running a BBS and just run BinkleyTerm and Confmail as a point to get the Conferences I want to read and the heck with everything else. Sorry for the long monologue but as you can see by the date/time mark it is late and I am really miffed over the problems this package seems to have with EchoMail, especially packets produced with ConfMail.

It will work with the QuickBBS formatted Areas.BBS file. Setup as follows and it will work:

SET AUTOECHO=c:\autoecho

cd \quickbbs echogen -U -T -P -Z …….. copy areas.bbs \autoecho\areas.bbs cd \autoecho autoecho copy areas.bbs \quickbbs\areas.bbs cd \quickbbs MailToss -K oMMM …… etc…..

Make sure you create a SYSTEM1.BBS file in the AutoEcho directory that has the Message Path set to wherever you told Quick the Matrix Message Areas were. Make sure you set the message type to MATRIX/Net Mail. Make sure you run AutoEcho AFTER EchoGen and BEFORE MailToss. BEFORE MailScan and EchoGen (scan), and in all cases before oMMM.

This worked fine here (after I created the SYSTEM1.BBS file with the proper NetMail message path in it, and put it, AutoEcho, and the AREAS.BBS files in the subdir pointed to by the AUTOECHO environment variable.

So far I have not seen a product that is satisfactory for paying the $25 for. Verison 1.02 was almost totally useless, and after testing it for a SHORT period of time, Quick 1.02 was deleted forever from my system. If I cannot use it I am not going to register it! What are you, a loogan or something?

Secondly, I installed 2.00 when I finally managed to get a copy after release, and quite a few of the problems that it had with 1.02 have been fixed, however there are EXTREMELY SERIOUS FLAWS IN THE PROGRAM THAT IN MY HUMBLE OPINION MAKE IT UNUSABLE IN MY PARTICULAR CASE. For that reason you can expect that I shall not register it until those problems have been fixed.

To enumerate the idiocies and non-FTSC crap that QuickBBS does but should not:

1) It MUST NOT put sh*t at the end of a MATRIX message. Tear lines are for echomail messages, not netmail. I hate the bippity-bop flippancy with

   which this has been added and subtracted from version to version.  One
   minute it is there, the next it is gone.  Anyone tossing the coin to

see

   if it is fixed in the next version?

2) The stupid fucker stops sending data when the modem drops the CTS line.

   Yet it insists that it does fossil I/O.  Since it is THE RESPONSIBILITY
   OF THE FOSSIL DRIVER AND ONLY THE FOSSIL DRIVER TO DO ALL HANDSHAKING,
   WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS LITTLE TURD DOING EVEN LOOKING AT THE FUCKING

MODEM

   CONTROL REGISTER?  If Adam needs help accessing the Fossil Driver
   correctly, I have a WHOLE LIBRARY of Turbo Pascal 4.0 routines that do
   FOSSIL revision 4 and 5 I/O properly.

3) The program seems to inspect the MCR all the time and doing crap that it should not be, yet at importandt times (like when it is trying to

   download), the shitter just sits there idly waiting for a char to come

in

   even after the caller has hung up!  Whatsa matter, forget to check the
   carrier, or just forget to detect the message from the Fossil that
   carrier was dropped?

4) See previous posts for more problems with it!

Thank-you, All the further info I can give you is that the EchoGen looks like it is trying to display the AREA:xxxxxx line from the top of the message, however it appears to be displaying several extra characters from the message(?) before it. It usually produces anywhere from 5 to 30 IBM graphics chars intermixed with beeps and bells, and occasionally other ASCII control codes. I have compared the junk to the message contents, but can't seem to find a match-up for it.

Thanks again. That covers the major complaints. I know that alot of people will be happy with that option (especially everyone who runs AutoEcho and Server, or has to communicate with one :-) ).

Other problems, how do I force Quick to not stop sending data whenever the modem drops CTS. As you know, with a locked DTE/DCE with the HST of 19200 baud, the data goes from the fossil to the modem in 64 byte (1/2 modem buffer) blocks. I have 16K buffers in the fossil, and there is no reason Quick can't pump them full of data and let the fossil handle the CTS like it has been told to by the B,0,19200 option. It just needlesly degrades the performance of the entire system (when I run at 14Mhz with a 1600K disk cache and it ALMOST goes as fast as OPUS 1.03b running at 8Mhz under DESQview, 512K cache, with a Local Opus reading/writing messages, a Clippered application madly working on a 1M database, and an MBP Cobol Compile running all at the same time under DESQview.)

I have run into a "seemed" problem with ECHOGEN. A lot of people are useing SIRIUS to respond to messages in the net. When one of these messages come to a QUICKBBS 2.0 system Echogen will handle it correctly and send it on to other systems, but will not import it into the BBS itself. The problem is really with the SIRIUS user, they don't have it configured right to add the ORIGIN Line as well as the SIRIUS Tag line, but it is such a widespread mis-setup that Quick will have to be able to handle it. With to 60 or so echoes I handle, 30 to 40 messages a day are not tossed.

Adam,

   In addition to all the problems I see noted in previous messages, we

are experiencing other problems: 1. Whenever a caller "pulls the plug" instead of logging off normally, the board crashes (didn't happen in 1.02). This is no big thing, since we run the board through a recycle batch file. The only problem is that the time used that day in the USERS.BBS file is set to 0. 2. Download limits are not checked for Zmodem or SEAlink. Apparently Ymodem works just fine. This was a problem in 1.02 also. In conjunction, the bytes downloaded that day, in the USERS.BBS file, is not updated for Zmodem and SEAlink transfers. 3. User's time used being set to some high number and time used that day display set to something like 65535. We had this occur twice, both times when a user was returning from a batch Zmodem transfer. 4. Screen does not clear after log off, causing the new fossil driver messages to be printed on top of the last user screen (problem did not exist 1.02).

John -

 If you are using v 2.00, then you need not put a 3 after MAILTOSS. 

Simply tell QuickBBS (by using QConfig) that your Net Mail board is # 3. That seeeeeeeems to work just fine for me. Hope this helps …..

hmm.. I wonder if anyone has seen this phenomena in echomail yet. I have twice (that I know of) tossed inbound echomail, and gone to the message area to read the new messages and seen this… it looks as if the new message was tossed over top of an older message. What I will get is the Origin Line of the new message then text from an older message adn then the origin line of the older message like this:

— Origin: New Message etc etc.

body of text from older message - it is always from a different message area - never the same area that the new message was tossed into.

then:

— Origin: Old Message etc etc

END OF MESSAGE

anyone else seen this phenomena?

Well, I trashed my Zmodem protocol because I thought it was the culprit since the error occured directley after using or attempting to use it, or at least it might have had something to do with it… But the "bug" has re-occured again and someone else's log got 6+ hours added on, so Zmodem was'nt the problem after all (but it did'nt work anyway). I have'nt been able to pinpoint a pattern associated with the "bug", it seems to happen at random, although so far, it has happened only to people who have not logged in for at least a couple weeks-has'nt bothered the active users yet. I have put a message on my opening screen pertaining to that "bug" in hopes that users won't think the sysop is the one who's logging them off. <sigh>

The other was the way my CONFIG.SYS was set up. I was messing with a multi tasker and it re-did my config to suit it I was forced to go back and put X00.SYS back in and other stuff. the order in wich you install some things affects operations.

Keith: I have no problem with you listing your problems with QuickBBS my problem is language like yours is why we will lose the PRIVILEGE to have a BBS on the telephone lines. If you think that having BBS is a RIGHT you are badly mistaking as it is only a privilege. If you follow the news on the F.C.C. you will find that they are under a LOT of pressure to get us out of the BBS's and get rid of us. With people like you using that type of language (which by the way is illegal per F.C.C. laws) we will lose this fine hobby. So if you can find it in your view PLEASE use the english language in a manner that will let me continue to have a BBS operating. Yes, F.C.C. does have some control over the telephone company.

Don't forget to advise anyone that tries this that they better tell Qconfig that Ansi graphics are not available, but allow the user to toggle them on once logged on. If you have an editor declared in Qconfig, and you have ANSI allowed, Quick will ask any new user that says yes to ansi graphics if they want to use the full screen editor. THen, when they go to enter a message it's a guaranteed lock up for a remote user.

Oh yes there is such a thing as Ansi music. In fact, I just saw a program somewhere (didn't bother with it) for creating ansi screens with music for use on bbs's, and I if I'm not mistaken, there was a system around here that had a collection of ansi pictures with music.

One of the reasons I always like THEDRAW over any of the other ansi editors was it's abiltity to save a portion of the screen. Maybe you're missing something (or creating animated screens which must be saved in full). Next time try this. Create the screen, hit ALT-B to mark the portion of the screen you want to do something with and when you mark the end of the block, THEDRAW will ask you if you want to "M)ove, C)opy, S)ave… etc.". Hit S and and you can save just the portion you block marked. The "S)ave" option won't appear if you're creating an animated screen or more accurately, it won't appear if you are in ANImated mode (shown at the bottom) even if the screen you're creating does not contain any animation.

Lets see if I can explain this one… After entering about three netmail messages the other day, then logging off, I noticed that two of the messages were found and exported quite quickly and there was something like "Scanning the Quick-Net message base". That may not be the exact statement. Then it said "Scanning the QuickBBS message base" and found the third netmail message I had entered, but it appeared to take a LOT longer to find and export this message.

What's the difference in the two methods and how is it determined? Just curious.

To use PCBoard doors with QuickBBS, you run a little program right after the user selects the door that creates a PCBOARD.SYS file. The program, of course is in your .BAT file. There is one such program called QuickDOOR. It is available on my BBS at (501) 521-4734 or on the author's BBS at (501) 521-8072. The file is QDOOR12.ARC, and works great…

Hi All!

 I'm busily converting my RBBS board over to QuickBBS but am having

extreme difficulty in getting Echogen to Toss the incoming mail. More specifically ECHOGEN -A -U -T goes and does it thing fine until it tries to get PKXARC to unarc the incoming arced mail packets. ECHOGEN finds the correct filename in the correct directory as specified in the ECHOMAIL.CTL file. Then when ECHOGEN invokes PKXARC, PKXARC returns an errorlevel of 3 and the message PKXARC can't find -R.ARC is displayed! For the life of me I can't figure out where the -R is coming from? Has anyone else encountered this perplexing problem before? Also, the MAILTOSS program works fine but PKXARC is not envolved there.

 I just wanted to drop this message off first to see if anyone else had

seen this problem. If not, I'll provide a more detailed description of what my setup is and what's in the various CTL files. Thanks.

Not sure what to say on this one, maybe if I knew how the ANSI music worked I could track it down. Perhaps you could get me some information on it?

I use a Pascal version of SEA's code (I sat down and converted it), however it has not been fully perfected and still has many problems. The code acts real strange and none of the problems make sense (what problems do?).

If you have other *.MSG files in that directory then EchoGen will account those as messages even though they are not numbered like 1.MSG.

You can give my system a call, there is a separate section for QuickBBS related files (utilities and such).

There is programs already written to run RBBS-PC and PCBoard door programs and things.

Right now I am not accepting beta-test sites, I have a small group of testers already which I will most likely keep. I like to keep the group fairly small and managable.

It will compare the date on the message, so for local mail it is the time it was entered on your system and for EchoMail is was the time it was entered on the originating system.

Currently there is no option of where the messages files are placed, and probably won't be in 2.01. Maybe in the release after that.

The first method is the quick shortcut way, if any problems are detected when this first method is in progress then a full scan of the message base is done. Your third message must have had something MAILSCAN didn't like and therefore did a complete scan.

If the other net-mail is from your system then you can get it in using MAILTOSS, simply append a -F parameter in front of it. You can refer to the documentation for more information on this.

 The E-Mail selection isn't used at this time. What I would like to see is

this changed to something like "Usenet" or whatever and be processed just like EchoMail EXCEPT, no Tear Line, Origin Line, or SEEN-BY's appended to the message. I need a way to get my Usenet news groups out of QuickBBS without the Fido-Net dependant information mentioned above. The MailIn/Out and NewsIn/Out programs that I use to process outbound News adds a signature file at the end of each message and a special ORGANIZATION environment variable holds my Usenet compatible origin information. This is specific to the UFGATE package which is what all the Gateways that I know of are running.

 It isn't possible to have a generic help system since no two QuickBBS

systems need look alike and usually don't. If one uses descriptions that really tell what a selection does, users shouldn't need extensive help. At least I've never had any complaints. My menus are available for D/L or F/Req as CASP-MEN.ARC (all 80 or 90 of 'em!).

I did tell someone to use Qedit. So, how did it work for you. I see that you are not quoting my last message to you so you must not be using it. I am using it for this message and it works great. I decided not to use SHEDIT because of the — SHEDIT v1.00 appearing in all messages. I didn't mind it appearing in the echomail messages but I didn't want that in my local messages.

One of the most common causes of multiple tosses is a grunged mail archive. I have published in this echo a batchfile fragment set that will get rid of the offending archive before it trashes you. ANYTHING that uses an internally-called Archiver that does not delete what it classifies as a fragged file will cause the same set of problems.

QhichBBS is not perfect, but it is working well enough that I manage to run 52 echo areas and feed more than 20 other nodes with it. I like the speed, space savings, and the fact that there is not much that has occurred that wasn't either fixed or supplied with a workaround.

Such messages can be a consequence of the way that FrontDoor builds packets - seems that it occasionally puts more than one NULL byte between packeted messages, which causes some fields to look EXTREMEMLY odd.

The WXmodem protocol does not operate at anything above 2400, now that I think about it. DSZ should go alright with the 19200 though.

The problem is that QuickBBS does NOT know the actual baud rate when you lock the port.

I just ran into something that I feel really needs to be addressed. As you know, Paging of the sysop is set in the Config.sys file. I have three times during the day that I allow myself to be available for chat, but I don't want to be desterbed by the normal users during the rest of the day, However, I do want a way that I can be paged by my special users on the off hours that I would normally not be available for chat.

The problem here is that there is only one time slot for chat and there is no way to make a ^G beep the console under present conditions. I tried making a file of ^G's that only my special people could get to at any time but ran into a problem right off the bat. It rings the users bell just fine (drives them crazy), but nada on this end. How about either implementing more chat schedules (three at least) or creating a ^FG combination that can be used in an .ASC file to ring the console bell? (preferablly both)!!!

notice that a CR appears on each side of the LF.

I am haveing a problem with net & echo mail and was wondering if you had heard this one yet.

When I log on locally and enter net or echomail the system does not pack it up until a remote user logs off. Then it packs it up and moves it to the outbound area.

I just changed to a HST 9600 modem and it didn't do that until then.

Got any ideas anybody?

when they try to use it. I think the problem is in X00 v1.09[b|c]. I use X00 v1.08 and SHEDIT was developed using OPUSCOMM v5.2. If I am not mistaken, v1.09[b|c] are beta test copies of X00 and therefore this is probably a problem in the FOSSIL.

   Please, if someone is having this porblem and they are using X00 v1.08,

let me know so that I can narrow down the posibilities.

You know Keith… I happen to agree with you that QuickBBS even in it's latest incarnation, still needs a lot of work. And I too am waiting to see what is going to happen before registering - having switched back and forth between Opus and Quick several times now. But I also happen to think that the FTSC standard 1.MSG, 2.MSG, etc etc is the absolute most absurd thing I have ever seen, which is the major reason I want to run QuickBBS.

But all the problems (real and imagined) with QuickBBS do not excuse your attitude in this echo. You could have said everything you did without resorting to gutter eloquence… there is enough of that in some of the other echos, although I have to admit that your message was one of the worst I have ever seen in a National echo. I really think this is one of the more informative echos and one of the only two that I follow on a daily basis any more.
