Atari 8-bit related BBS(s)

I've been doing a Keto/fasting diet myself and one thing that I wasn't expecting was having that afternoon sleepy-ness go away. I can now work on Atari stuff after I get home from work and not get sleepy archiving. Lost 20 lbs. in a month as well. Another couple of months of this and I'll be buying new pants.

Seconded, the same thing happened to me. My cloudiness in my head disappeared, and when I realized it...

 

"WOW, THIS IS WHAT NORMAL FEELS LIKE?! THIS IS AWESOME!"

 

And I've stayed like this for over a year. and don't ever want to go back.

Yes! Exactly... that was the immediate change I saw... much more energy. I also, because I'm on an antibiotic for life to keep the infection in me at bay so it can't get at my heart again, I take a broad probiotic from GNC, thats another thing I find helps tremendously with my health, digestion and immune system. I take my health very seriously, I am not going to lose 8 years of my life again.

alcatraz bbs always can use a call

make sure disconnect mode on your lantronix is C1

and telnet padding is off on you console server like mss or scs

Please note that my BBS is down for a while. I am backing up the C: drive to a USB stick. DMA off, Divisor zero, but it's still gonna take a while.

 

Batch file:

 

echo off

poke 559 0

copy /r c:\*.* pclk:\

poke 559 34

 

Edit: Damn it! F***

 

RespeQt r4.3 just crashed. I saw a M$ Error Report box pop up. I reported the error, but I doubt it will do any good.

 

I'll try it again.

I made a 16 Meg ATR and tried it again. It bombed with a 138 in SDX.

 

WTF?

 

 

 

Edit: BBS up again. Too many fails in the backup, I may need to use an older version of RespeQt.

 

It worked in the past. This sucks.

Kyle doesn't SDX copy command have an /s switch to turn off the screen DMA also..

COPY /RS C:*.* PCLK:

I forgot about /s, but the poke 559 0 does the same thing.

Even with RespeQt 4.2.1 it still crashes with the M$ Error Report message.

 

It works great on small operations. Large ones like copy C:\*.* seem to cause problems.

 

Is there a known good copy of it? The only thing I care about is that it's fast. Happy, Archiver doesn't matter.

 

I have ran this before on the EXACT SAME HARDWARE and it worked before.

 

I'll keep looking around and report the version that works.

If C: has subdirectories then a COPY /RS C: PCLK: would be more stable. The *.* is looking for extenders and most FOLDERS have no extenders.

??? it would copy the folders that have extenders in any case, correct? No matter which method is used... I suppose it's experiment time...

What version of SpartaDOS are you using?

 

Ever tried Tom Hunt's RCOPY?

 

What about Hardback?

I remember back when I was living in a small town in New Jersey called Union City, I used to log into a BBS with the letters EBBS which was for East Brunswick Bulletin Board Systems. By any chance, is the person or persons involved with EBBS part of Atariage? EBBS had some really fun games back in the day.

I've been planning to work on it but I was trying to set it up so that it could be dynamically updated and that's taking too long, so I think I'll do another manual edit (have to change the year anyway).

 

In addition to setting it up so other people can do edits, the plan that I briefly talked to JP about was to let BBS's have a little module they can run when they come online (part of the startup script) that will let the site know they're up and running.

 

But like I said, this keeps getting drawn out by some other things going on, along with the job hunt.... so I'll be updating it tomorrow while I'm taking full advantage of my unemployed status to watch some first round NCAA tournament action. ;)

If anyone finds a GOOD BBS List, please upload it to here, AND my BBS. Feedback me and I will update the list.

 

Thanx.

Did you have a problem with the one I was doing (other than maybe not being so proactive in updating it?)

 

Which I just did by the way.
