LiveWire 2.2 (r2)
April 22, 1994

LiveWire 2.2 was released on April 20th. Since that release a few
relatively important but easy to fix problems were noted by users.
The following changes were made:

1. Expanded flexibility of the file renaming system. Including a single
digit after a % command causes the string to be at most that number
of characters. For example, %2e will insert an extension of at most
two characters.

The default rename format is now %f.%2e%n
which will rename a file DMBBS.QWK to DMBBS.QW1, DMBBS.QW2, etc.

2. Fixed a bug that was causing macros to not save properly in some cases.

3. RTS/CTS state was not being changed immediately when configuration was

4. Default setting for Zmodem Resume is now "Ask."

Only approximately 30 people recieved LiveWire 2.2 without these
revisions, so I thought it would be a good idea to make these
changes now before LiveWire 2.2 gets into the distribution lines.

  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:
