Hey, look! The "computer of the day" at old-computers.com is the Altos 586 -- the original computer Uncensored ran on back in 1988!

Ah, memories...

Great site! Their facts aren't 100% accurate on some of the old machines that I used, though.

True, but you can't expect perfection in this case.

This room needed a new message. So here it is!

I'll provide some CitaNews soon. A new version of Citadel is coming. Version 6.05 will be a bit of a bugfix and enhancement rollup containing various things we've been doing over the last few months.

We'll be introducing an initial, very limited version of the calendar service for Citadel. Users will be able to keep their calendars online and send/receive invitations and replies in standard ical format. Future versions will include a full "shared calendar" service with publishable freebusy and all that type of stuff.

After this version is out the door we're most likely going to make some big changes to the build architecture. The goal is to make it more portable.
Macintosh OS X is at the top of the list of platforms we want to support, but Windows 2000 (with Cygwin) might be in the running too. This project might be a release cycle unto itself.

There ya go. Real CitaNews. :)

IG: Let me know on the W2K, I have a box I can play with it on. I still think I will prefer the /UX version, but hey, why not.

IG, will the new version be Campy proof?

That's really a tall order. :)

I'll bet it will not be Campy proof.

I'm glad we have Campy around because he seems to be very good at uncovering stability-related bugs. We don't know why. A few other people on our QA team have the skills to learn and document the steps required to show reproducible bugs, but Campy has a knack for making the system go *poof* for no apparent reason.

Since reliability and correctness are more important than new features, we will of course have Campy pound on the test system until it stops going *poof*.
Only then will we release Citadel 6.05.

By the way, I ended up doing the portability stuff I had originally planned on saving until 6.06. Turns out it's easier to debug the code now that it doesn't have all that complex dynamic loading going on anymore. This means that we will now have a single, unified Citadel implementation that runs on Unix, Macintosh (which is Unix under the covers), and Windows (which isn't Unix but it should be, so we fake it with Cygwin).

I'm glad that I can be of assistance.

It really is amazing. I ran citadel-86 for a couple of years w/o issue (from '93-'95). I Then ran /ux from '95-'97 w/o problem. When I returned to /ux in '02 and the message system had been changed to db, everything went to hell. Ok, so the first time was due to a failed hard drive. But a new build on a new box had less then good results. It's just me... I'm sure of it....

Yes Virginia, there is a Campy, and I for one am glad for it.

Is NidHoggr still around the network, somewhere?

I ran across an IRC server on EFnet that listed a NidHoggr as one of its primary server ops, and I was wondering if it's the same person.

Speaking of looking for people, I had a 10th grade English teacher that was married to Topper (Sysop of a Cit86 I seem to recall being Ivory Tower, but could be wrong.) Oddly, I do recall the BBS's number of 425-0554 (but I always remembered phone numbers better than names.)

I always wanted to get in touch with those two, say hi, and see where life has taken them.
