Hi

I noticed in comp.os.linux announce, a new version of the Bluewave
software. We used to use this on Fidonet, are people still using fidonet
?. Or can Bluewave be used for other things ?. Just interested.

Cheers

Dave

That was a memory trip, "Blue wave" Hell I haven't heard that
for a long time.
I think fido is limping along, I know the os2bbs is still up.

Exactly what I thought Ron, thats why I asked. I always thought there was
a bit more adventuring into the unknown on BBS.

1. MultiMail v0.6a - an offline QWK/BlueWave packet reader, uses ncurses

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

 MultiMail
 =========

 MultiMail is an offline mail reader, with it you can read QWK/BlueWave
packets created by BBS systems. It's still in alpha stage, but should
be pretty usable.
 You can check out the following homepage for more info and
screenshots:

  http://goliat.eik.bme.hu/~johnzero/multimail

  Revision History (what's new):
  ==============================
0.6a: * Oops! The signature was in the wrong place. Right order is:
        signature, tagline, tearline ;-)
      + Tagline adoption is supported! (Doesn't check dupe tags yet.)
      * QWK-reply packs contained '\n' as a line terminator.
        It's incorrect! We have to use softCR (char#227).
      + Character conversion is somewhat in! For ISO 8859-1 <--> CP437 (DOS)
        translation, #define ISOCONVERT in /interface/interface.h
      - ISO conversion doesn't do the from/to/subj yet
