Jay Kenney 19870727all Hello everyone, This message is a dBase record. It has space for 20 lines of text. This is fun....a BBS written entirely in dBase & Clipper! You will be able to edit messages after they have been saved. (Messages entered by you and only with the right password.) Jay Kenney 19870727all The possibilities are many. User-selected color options stored in your record will remember your preferences. That comes later. First let me figure out the files area... Jay Kenney 19870727all Hi...I entered this from remote. DAVID MCCUTCHEN 19870727JAY KENNEY HEY !! AN IDEA FOR YOUR FILE XFER.... SINCE ANYWARE WORKS BY REROUTING ANY SCREEN OUTPUT TO THE SERIAL PORT I/O. WHERE COULD A LAYMAN LIKE ME AQUIRE SUCH A PROGRAM' YOU ASK?? EASY !! ASK ME !] ON THE MULTILINK 4.0 DISKS, THERE IS A XMODEM FILE XFER PROGRAM THAT IS TO BE USED WITH THE BBS WRITTEN FOR MLINK. I BELIEVE IT RUNS WITH OUTPUT TO THE SCREEN AND INPUT FROM THE REMOTE KEYBOARD. MIGHT TRY IT OTHERWISE, SROPPING TO DOS WITH A SEALINK PROGRAM (I.E. C>OPUSLINK -P1 -B2400 OR KERMIT MAY WORK FOR YOU. TRY IT, WHO KNOWS ADD WORDWRAP TO THE EDITOR NEXT WILL YA ! DAVE Jay Kenney 19870728DAVID MCCUTCHEN Hey...there's REPLY.....got it... Jay Kenney 19880123Jay Kenney If you are wondering what the heck is happening here, please forgius while we hammer on a tangent of a DOS re-direction problem we've beworking on for a client. Jay Kenney 19880123All Zmodem download works in 1k blocks! Brice Fleckenstein 19880123Sysop yet ANOTHER dBASE BBS! (Haven't you ever heard of P.dBMS, the immediate prequel to Bill Blue' vic moberg 19880123Jay Kenney Wish I had added ZMODEM to my PROCOMM. The Quit command in file listidoesn't seem to work the first time - or is it case sensitive? An interesting experiment, if still a little rough around the edges. Jay Kenney 19880123All hope to add Xmodem and Ymodem tomorrow. Sorry if you don't have Zm Jay Kenney 19880123All Needs word wrap!!! Also...we are limited to 20 line messages in the lmessage areas and in comments. I'm going to be adding an external Fido-Net/Opus-type message reader also and that just may replace the current message structure altogether. This thing is tiny right now. 14k in dBase programs compile into 140

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
