    Remarks:

    IO Incoming only (Node can not make outgoing IPv6 calls)
    OO Outgoing only (Node can not accept incoming IPv6 calls)
    INO4 No IPv4 (Node can not accept incoming IPv4 calls)
    PO4 Prefers Out on 4 (Node can make outgoing IPv6 calls,
    but is configured to try IPv4 first)
    6DWN The IPv6 connectivity of this node is temporarely down.
    DOWN This node is temporarely down for both IPv4 and IPv6
    PM Prospective Member. The node has demonstrated IPv6
    capability but is not yet listed in the Fidonet nodelist.


    Notes:

    To make an IPv6 connection to a node connected via 6to4 tunneling
    one may have to force the mailer into IPv6 (-6 option in binkd's
    node config). If the destination address is a 6to4 tunnel address
    (2002::/16) Windows defaults to IPv4 if an IPv4 address is present.

    JAMNNTPD SERVERS LIST =================================================================

    The Johan Billing JamNNTPd project

    This is a list of known JamNNTPd servers working. They are essentially
    the modern version of Bulletin Board Systems.

    You connect to them using the newsreader of your choice and you don't
    need any other software installed on your computer -- regardless of
    operating system -- but that favourite mail client of yours.

    Even smart phones can handle this, giving you the opportunity to get
    your daily doses of fidonet on the bus, tram or train on the way to
    your job, school or whatever.

    FIDONEWS INFORMATION =================================================================

    How to Submit an Article

    If you wish to submit an article for inclusion in the Fidonews, here
    are some guidelines, if you send it as an attached file; the preferred
    method if you want reasonable control over how the published article
    will appear in the Fidonews:

    a) Plain text. If you could type it on your keyboard, it's probably
    quite OK. No line may be longer than 70 characters.

    b) Put a title to the article. Put the title in two times. The first
    time, on the first line, with an * before it. The second time, on
    the second line, without the * and centered. This will help in the
    format since the title with the * is removed and used in the index,
    the second line will become the headline. On the third line, put
    your name and FidoNet address, present or former. If former, you
    may want to add some other address where you can be reached for
    personal comments.

    c) Deadline for article submission is Sunday, 22:00 UTC.

    Help the Editor by following the above guides. Below are some subjects
    and the file extension for the article as set in the configuration
    file for the making of the Fidonews. Please help by putting the file
    extension of the correct subject on the file name if known.

    Ideas for Subject areas:

    Subject File | Subject File ----------------------------------|----------------------------------
    From the *C's *.css | Rebuttals to articles *.reb
    Fidonet Regional News *.reg | Fidonet Net News *.net
    Retractions *.rtx | General Fidonet Articles *.art
    Guest Editorial *.gue | Fidonet Current Events *.cur
    Fidonet Interviews *.inv | Fidonet Software Reviews *.rev
    Fidonet Web Page Reviews *.web | Fidonet Notices *.not
    Getting Fidonet Technical *.ftc | Question Of The Week *.que
    Humor in a Fido Vein *.hfv | Comix in ASCII *.cmx
    Fidonet's Int. Kitchen *.rec | Poet's Corner *.poe
    Clean Humor & Jokes *.jok | Other Stuff *.oth
    Fidonet Classified Ads *.ads | Corrections *.cor
    Best of Fidonet *.bof | Letters to the Editor *.let

    If you don't know or are not sure, send the article anyway. Put a .TXT
    on it and I'll try to figure out where it should be in the Fidonews.

    If you follow these simple guidelines, there should be little problem
    in getting your article published. If your submission is too far out
    of specs for the Fidonews, it will be returned to you and/or a message
    sent informing you of the problem. This DOES NOT mean that your
    article is not accepted. It means that there is something in it that I
    can not fix and I need your help on it.
    Send articles via e-mail or netmail, file attach or message to:

    Bjrn Felten
    Fidonet 2:2/2 or 2:203/0
    E-Mail b @ felten dot se
    Skype file bfelten

    IMPORTANT! If you send the article via e-mail, make sure you put the
    word "fidonews" somewhere in the subject line! That way it
    will always pass the spam filter, ending up in the proper
    folder.

    Please include a message, telling me that you have sent an article.
    That way I will know to look for it.
