Oh, just wondering. I've got a DOC clone bbs I'm running at work. Just wondering how many active users this one had. You're all welcome to visit:

Oh, ok...This particular system has somewhere between 4 and 6 active, regular users. While I'd like to have more active users, my system has been a Citadel network hub, primarily, for a number of years.

I think I remember seeing notes about your board on ISCA, from time to time, have I not?

Yeah, you've probably seen it on isca once or twice. We haven't really advertised our presence at all. It's close-knit group, but it can never hurt to have some new members, ya know?

I don't bbs much anymore. Takes too much work to keep up with a bunch of bbs'. I really dig the networked forums feature that you have on here. How does that work? Is it like an exported newsfeed or something?

The system has a list of systems with which it shares rooms, and each shared room has a list of which systems share that room.

The system, on a defined interval, exports new messages from those rooms into system specific spool files, and imports system specific spool files into the rooms. It also, on defined intervals, can/will make connections to the sharing systems...and sharing systems can/will make connections to this system.

It's also possible to do the same sharing via email...instead of the BBS' making the connection, a script can email the message spools to a sharing system, and vice versa...this especially comes in handy for systems that are not connected, directly, to the internet...like the older DOS based Citadels.

It's been maybe a week since I logged in here, but I'm checking in again, at least :)

That's 'cause most of us have been busy with computer shows and the like. :)

By the way, F-dog, I wasn't kidding about those "Hello Kitty" minidiscs! Check this link:

http://www.minidisco.com/minispecs/axiamdhk80-hd.html

(This has to be seen to be believed. If you download the right browser plugin, you can even see these things in rotating 3-D, supposedly.)

(Do I hear an "oy"? :) )

I've been busy re-installing compilers on a pair of Solaris machines, because someone (not me) who doesn't understand how tar works tried to save some time while installing updated gnu compilers on three machines. What...a...mess. The worst part was that she tried to fix it first without telling anyone.

Maybe it's a *good* thing that the 3-D applet on that Minidisco page hasn't been working for me...!
