PSS Sorry about being late gang, but real life intruded. My youngest, Alexia (11)

had an archery tournament that took up a lot of time.

 

I guess playing a female Elvish ranger at home in our D&D games, as
well as reading/watching "The Hunger Games" paid off... :)

It was the 2014 District 13 Regional Tournament, with 309 shooters
present, in an all day event Saturday.

She got 1st place female, middle school division and 1st place team,
middle school division.

She did good. :)

That's awesome! My niece is 13 and always been into Harry Potter, but she's a tad clumsy and I would be nervous if she had a bow :)

I had trouble using BobTerm in ATASCII. Do you support ATASCII? Is it auto-detected? All I got was a bunch of ANSI or VTxxx looking codes garbling up the text.

 

If my mistake, please forgive me, but I can't get on it with BobTerm.

Hmm, we basically offer three modes - ANSI, VT52 and plain text. I keep planning on adding the 8bit

version of ATASCII, but have never gotten around to it (that's my fault).

 

The connect script only auto engages ANSI if the terminal software calling in sends a signal saying it

is using ANSI, otherwise, it should go to the menu where you can pick what you need/want.

 

Sorry you're having problems.

 

Any other Bobterm users out there have experience with this? Thanks.

Actually, do any Atari BBS programs actually support ATASCII? I know RatSoft doesn't, and I tried to find a way to do it.... the problem is that it doesn't support the CR/LF/EOL/WHATEVER translation since the ST uses a "standard" CR/LF scheme.

 

I really wish RatSoft allowed me to do it, but since the author lost the source code and it's not in a language like BASIC... I'm not sure re-writing it is worth the trouble as I'd have to be dealing with modifying a disassembly.

huh? you must mean Atari ST BBS programs.... and then I'll follow that with 'standard?' for many years END OF LINE, CARRIAGE RETURN, and LINE FEED were all separate. The EOL key was also named RETURN or ENTER depending on what the keyboard's intended use or targeted use would be, later on such conventions becoming interchangeable with little regard to any of it.

that's also why they were all were named as such...

An RCP/M BBS system could be made to talk ATASCII.

Pro! automatically translates ATASCII drawing characters to ANSI if required. This is not complicated. My main menu is totally ATASCII. With ATASCII <CR> ($9B) [155].

It is automatically translated to ANSI on the fly if an ANSI user connects.

 

Any decent board can do this already, (or can be made to do this).

 

Edit: [ONE LETTER] mis-spell. :(

This! LOL

 

Seriously, but unfortunately, I didn't have a source for a prize for this month.

 

In the next few months we should though....considering that "Beyond the Borders 3" is about to be released...

 

Hint, hint, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.   :)

Just a heads up - Bikerbob I still don't have an e-mail, PM, Pony Express message,

whatever, as to your actual physical address.

 

Can't send something if we don't know where to send it....  :)
