About This Club

A club for those interested in Atari classic BBSing, 8-bit or ST/TT/Falcon, running or calling, how-to's as well as general discussion.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I think it's pretty good. You've got a platform there, that as you mentioned, you can fill up with your favored content.
  3. A quick question regarding my blogsite www.thecell.ar ? What are the opinions of those who have visited it ? Too much rambling ? Not enough techo-babble ? Too short/too long ? Planning on creating some more content hence the question.
  4. Or I'm guessing, given the domain information, someone just got the domain registered and will be putting up a site again.
  5. More than I was getting earlier... just a landing page? Any chance you could give us more information?
  6. Hmm. Just visiting "bbsmates.org" gives me this:
  7. As Tillek indicated, you have to ask the fTelnet author to get whitelisted. I have no idea how long it takes. I was surprised to discover that The Basement BBS was whitelisted. I don't remember requesting it. If I did request it, it was probably a while back. There is another BBS website that supports fTelnet called "I ping therefore I am", https://www.ipingthereforeiam.com/bbs/ The maintainer of this website whitelists everyone that gets listed on their website. -JP
  8. My machine rebooted and the proxy didn't auto-start like it was supposed to. I'm moving it to my WS2022 machine tomorrow so that shouldn't be a problem. I'm also working on adding a health check so if it goes down I'll get notified. But it should be fine now. If they have their own proxy for the telnetbbsguide you're probably out of luck since they'd have to add you (as in, you'll have to wait for them). If they're using the fTelnet public proxy, you'd probably just have to contact the fTelnet author who runs it (but if that's the guy you're reaching out to, again... sorry...) Just to mention, I had tried to get the guy to fix ATASCII for years. I was even going to offer to pay him, but alas... he never responded to a single message in all that time so (shrug)... wish I could help more with that. That said, I don't know if anyone really uses their fTelnet client since probably most of the BBS's on it that don't use the standard port were never whitelisted. I don't think mine ever was and that's been since like 2013.
  9. @Tillek I noticed today that using fTelnet via sfhq doesn't seem to work anymore , not for my BBS nor Darkforce fnor SFHQ ? On another note does anybody know how to get whitelisted for fTelnet on telnetbbsguide.com I've send my details via the contact form already 3 times I think but no luck yet.
  10. Just a reminder for the Atari BBS community zoom chat for tomorrow, Friday, May 17th 2024 at 8pm Eastern. For more information and the proposed agenda, go to http://www.ataribbs.com/zoomchat This is also the link to the zoom meeting itself (it will automatically forward from 15 minutes before until four hours after the meeting starts). As you well know, the agenda is always subject to change and the whims of whoever actually attends, but what is planned is... - Reproducing the DC Port - What do you want to see for the table(s) at VCF Midwest - Trying to plan an A8 modem demo but work has been crazy (so we'll see) - Project(s) Status(es) (If you're working on something, share it with us!) - And whatever else we find ourselves discussing! Looking forward to seeing all of you!

  12. Currently the blogsite is not hosted on my own server , that is something I'm looking into
  13. And the first release from the Outline 2024 event this weekend has also been uploaded to the BBS.
  14. @Tillek can you add www.thecell.ar also to your BBS list please ? After 10 hours I can now finally report that my blogsite is up and running at www.thecell.ar and my report of my visit to GEMTOS in France has been published there also. Another milestone reached. And now dinner-time ( 18:30 PM here)
  15. Nah... both are easy enough to find. I use Binkley (a newer version).
  16. I posted this on southernamis but thought I would throw it here. Saw this on fb. Not sure of the rarity of it but if it is rare we might want to reach out to the person. https://www.facebook.com/share/p/T4xoaQbm3k7ra3rz/?mibextid=K35XfP
  17. Ah, okay - no problem. Good things come to those who wait, eh?
  18. Off - on topic Regarding the name of that new Lynx title , it remains a mystery, I think I got a picture from it and even a sticker but I cannot decipher what the name was. The author is still keeping it secret also so I will too https://forums.atariage.com/topic/362861-gemtos-2024-a-mystery-limited-exclusive-release-is-coming-but-preorder-is-possible/#comment-5462323
  19. It's just one of those processes. When I installed BBS Express! ST the first time, it was such a bare-bones setup! Over the years, I've made multiple, multiple changes and adjustments. That continues to this day. Part of the fun of being a SysOp, IMHO.
  20. Ouch - sorry to hear that. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Looking forward to the full report.
  21. Triads claims to have a lot of the missing BBs programs. I can confirm I have seen a screenshot of Gardner BBs and he set up a test BBs for me to dial into. Last I spoke to him he was still not ready to release anything from his archives but maybe someone else have better skills at talking him into releasing some of his stuff.
  22. I decided to do some small changes to the BBS , 2 hours later LOL here is the summary I added some more files, a TTRAK song which was released for the GEMTOS competition and the new SNDH files that I missed since March 2024. Since a lot of of people in France asked me what is exactly available from files , I decided to do a quick fix. In the Main Menu there is a news bulletin which actually shows all listed files per category when I added them. But probably nobody looks there for that information so I added it after the logon procedure. Same story for the Events calendar which is a bit buried in the Message menu , added it after the logon procedure. Regarding complete file-listings , I will need to take some time to look at that python script that Techman had provided just before I was preparing to go to France. Still a lot of todo's in my head but that's it for today. Tomorrow I'm going to try to setup a blog website ... having absolutely no experience with the web ... I only used websites at work back when we had the big INTERNET boom so I totally missed out on HTML,CSS,JAVA , webdesign in general. Heck I was running DigitalResearch DOS 6.0 with GEM on an 386DX up to 2001. But well I already have a good idea/roadmap on how to tackle it so ... to be continued.
  23. Full report will be coming soon, I did post a short summary in the Message area on thecell.ar The mind wants to accomplish a lot of things but the back doesn't agree today with sitting down in a chair. Went to a chiropractor for the 2nd time last week , first time I felt 10 years younger again, this time the magic only lasted 1 day.
  24. Hey, every little bit helps. Those people will tell other people, who... Well, we can hope it works like that. Thanks for going the extra mile and presenting the retro Atari BBS scene so well. I hope you had a really good time as well - that picture sure looked like everyone was... Oh btw - some of our eagle eyed comrades noticed a Tandy computer in that picture. Hmm...
