The original 'Sysop Deal' modem was the USR Courier.  I still have at least one around here somewhere.

The BBS is back up.  That part of the re-arrangement is completed for now.

 

Still a lot of work to do.  Lots of computer equipment piled up where I normally park my car.

The Boot Factory 2K+ BBS will be down for a few days while I re-arrange my office to make more room for my Ataris.

Otherwise, who has suggestions for ST BBS software? OR a different (and stable A8 BBS that uses SpartaDOS)?  Preferably SDX (Like I remember PRO using back in the day)

 

 

 

BBS Express PRO has NEVER run under SDX.  This could be your problem.   I run Pro v2.1a on SD 3.3.

Is the Y2K issue with TDLine or BBS Express! ?

In Altirra I'm using the R-Time8 device and it's showing The Day of Week off by 1 day.  Is this the bug you speak of or ???

 

I use Tom Hunt's TDLINE which is fixed.  I can't remember... is TDLINE used with BBS:Express 850 or just Pro?

I'm sure he'll respond quickly.  After all, 5 minutes is standard in 2017.

#3783395 Unearthed Files From Alcatraz BBS

Posted by bf2k+ on Tue Jun 13, 2017 3:01 PM

HARDBACK.HDR was a disk used by Hardback Disk Backup system from Chris King of Orion MicroSystems.

 

If that was the only file on it then it was empty.

I also use x33a.  SpartaDOS X has always been a no-no for Pro.




#3770624 3" Drive

Posted by bf2k+ on Sat May 27, 2017 10:03 AM

I had one of the Amdek 3" dual drives on my BBS in the 80's.  It had two Teac 5.25" Quad-density drives hanging on it.




#3737030 Getting A8 Online with Lantronix and 850 Interface

Posted by bf2k+ on Sat Apr 8, 2017 6:26 AM

Is there a way around this I dont know.. for example bfbbs.no-ip.com this cannot be typed in Bobterm or IceT because either VT100 or Ansi as far as I can tell there is no way to type the dash.

try the alternate URL:  bfbbs.dtdns.net : 8888  (9000 for the Carina System)

 

It is usually working (I think).

Steve Tucker's PRO System is a good way to recover.  You can tell it to retry bad sectors multiple times.  Usually works.




#3719209 Connecting to a BBS Without a Phone Line?

If you have a PC running APE connected to your Atari, you can use the internet modem built into APE to connect.
