Here is information pertaining to how to get the new key for v2.66 of
QuickBBS. You may request a file from 1:363/1071 that contains the program
called: QUICKEY. It is contained in Simply run the program and
then file attach the file it produces (which will be called 'QuickBBS.UPG'.
Do not change any of the data unless you are sure to keep the format intact.
Use a plain ASCII editor if you find it necessary, OR simply re-run the
program which produces it.


You need to create a file that has exactly 12 lines in the format shown

eg, QGI or USTI or ADAM
mm\dd\yy (estimate if you have to)

It is important that each line be filled in, however, if you don't have a
net\node number, leave a blank line as a placeholder.

Do not include the brackets '<' or '>' or any leading or trailing
spaces. This file should NOT contain ANY control characters except for
the CRLF at the end of each line. No form feeds, tabs, or the like.

This file should be named 'QUICKBBS.UPG'.

File attach this file to 1:363/1071 and it will immediately return a file
called 'QUICKBBS.KEY' which will contain either your new key, or an short
note explaining what went wrong. After Friday 11\2\90, you can call 1:363/34
at it's new number (407) 896-0494 which *should* be in service by then.

If it returns a key, enter it EXACTLY as shown, with no extra spaces
either before or after the key. If the new key is shorter, be sure and
delete the extra characters, and backspace to eliminate the extra space
at the end.

Remember, the file you send us is 'QUICKBBS.UPG', the file we send you will

Non-network nodes will be able to register by direct login to 1:363/1071 or
1:363\34. A door will be provided for instant key translation on those
boards, and should be ready after this weekend. The FREQ key translator is
available now.

Happy BBSing
