    Consequently, let's keep the correspondence in Fidonet.

    Hi Ed,

    Just a report.

    I was very glad to receive the email from you. TNX fer Info.

    Were You able to get the help that You needed from the staff at QRZ.COM ?

    Your message was 6.7kb, and after deleting the lot of irrelevant information, the message itself (the important part), was 746 bytes.

    The "irrelevant" part might turn out to be Very Important for somebody's future.

    My Emails are usually written in Text instead of HTML to keep the size
    of the Email down.
    I will use HTML occasionally if I really need to.

    Does Your Email Service charge You by length of the messages You RCVD?

    Consequently, let's keep the correspondence in Fidonet.

    O.K.
    Here or in a Ham Radio conference?

    GA Ed,

    On a slow boat to China comes your message dated above to me May 3rd.

    Were You able to get the help that You needed from the staff at
    QRZ.COM ?

    I haven't tried yet because, before saving the relevant info, I have to
    first edit out all the irrelavant text.

    The "irrelevant" part might turn out to be Very Important for
    somebody's future.

    It may be, but I don't like to be forced to read everything.

    Does Your Email Service charge You by length of the messages You

    No, but it takes time to remove irrelevant text from a message that I
    would like to save and/or print out.

    actually, like the seenbys, the path is generally wrapped at something like 75 characters... if it is longer than that, you'll get two path lines but they'll be in order starting with the first one and continuing with the second and even
    third if the path is that long...

    Yes I know. In this case the SEENBY was 55 "nodes" long and as usual
    wrapped to the needed number of lines.

    But the PATH statement wasn't wrapped, instead there was two SIMILAR
    PATH:s, none of them longer than would fit within 75 characters.

    GA Ed,

    Areafix, Areamgr, Arealink and Allfix.

    Those are new terms to me as a BBS User.

    All I know is when I want to start reading a new (to me) echo I
    (J)oin the echo.

    IOW, you have subscribed to the entire list of echoes!
    To remove inactive echoes that you have subscribed to, you also use one
    or the other of above programs.

    You don't have to have the programmes yourself, your BBS sysop has them.
    To use any of them, you have to have a password that usually is agreed
    on with the BBS sysop when you set up an account with him (the BBS).

    Maybe you have lost the file where all your settings with the sysop are.

    Probably if I Logged On using TELNET I could look around to see if I
    could find those Areafix, Areamgr, Arealink and Allfix Commands and
    learn something about them.

    Even as any user you can ask for the commands for the program your sysop prefers, and the password required to use the commands.

    By 'Host' do You mean a BBS or Echo on the BBS?

    The Host is the BBS that delivers the areas you want to read/write in.

    The more surprising to me, is that you passed the free Win10 offer.

    Usually I don't leap when I hear about something new to me.

    Neiher do I, but when I read/hear something is free, I take note.

    SP3 is the last major update that it has on it.

    Yes SP3 is last update to XP and newer ones will not be forthcoming.

    I'll send a message to Him in that echo and tell Him that He is
    missed here.

    Holger,
    Ed is not a point system, so he would not have access to any of the area* commands here. He is a user of the BBS, and I don't have any knowledge of
    how he would even use those commands. Maybe some systems allow that, but
    this one does not.

    Even as a user you do have these command at your disposal: Areafix,
    Areamgr, Arealink an Allfix.

    Those are new terms to me as a BBS User.

    they only apply to points and nodes, really... some systems may have something with similar names for their offline configuration stuffs but these two are for FTN point and node operators to use to configure
    their mail feed at their links...

    Thanks, I don't think I'll bother Mike Powell about those Commands as I
    am only a user of His BBS.

    I seen the words Points and Nodes in messages but if You ask Mike He will
    tell You that I am the SysOp's Pest.

    No, I haven't subscribed to all of the echoes on this BBS.
    At least the last time I checked to see.
    Mike Powell, the SysOp of this BBS has more than just the FIDO echoes on
    this BBS.

    There are at least five other BBS Networks that I can read their messages.

    GT_POWER, DoveNEt, MicroLink, IL-Net and FSX Net.

    October 2016 is when I first saw messages in my .QWK Packets in FSX Net
    echoes.

    Mike Joined (or Subscribed) some of their echoes for my account for me then. Surprise!, Surprise! I got more to read now.

    You don't have to have the programmes yourself, your BBS sysop has
    them. To use any of them, you have to have a password that usually is agreed on with the BBS sysop when you set up an account with him (the BBS).

    Yes, I knew that You were speaking of Commands running on the SysOps BBS program.
    I'd just never remember seeing those b4.

    Maybe you have lost the file where all your settings with the sysop
    are.

    I never had that file, my settings are on Mikes BBS Machine, I just connect - enter my password and use His BBS.

    Probably if I Logged On using TELNET I could look around to see if I
    could find those Areafix, Areamgr, Arealink and Allfix Commands and
    learn something about them.

    Even as any user you can ask for the commands for the program your
    sysop prefers, and the password required to use the commands.

    I never asked to be a Co-Sysop, even though I have wrote Mike when I thought
    I saw a problem while using the BBS.

    By 'Host' do You mean a BBS or Echo on the BBS?

    The Host is the BBS that delivers the areas you want to read/write in.

    I just call a BBS a BBS, don't remember seeing the word Host to mean a BBS. DUH!

    The more surprising to me, is that you passed the free Win10 offer.

    Usually I don't leap when I hear about something new to me.

    Neiher do I, but when I read/hear something is free, I take note.

    I can understand downloading a file/program from a well known Company,
    there are a lot of so called Free download offers from others that might
    have a catch to it, like Malware - etc., but being offered by Microsoft
    would seem to be something safe.........

    SP3 is the last major update that it has on it.

    Yes SP3 is last update to XP and newer ones will not be forthcoming.

    Wcry changed that, didn't it?

    I didn't know that some systems are so limited. Here, every user above
    a certain user level, gets a questionnaire about password for this and
    other commands he may want to use.


    Have a good evening,

    Easy as a pie, hi.

    I just call a BBS a BBS, don't remember seeing the word Host to mean
    a BBS. DUH!

    Ever seen the word User?
    You are a user on Mike's BBS, who is hosting all the areas you want.

    I can understand downloading a file/program from a well known
    Company, there are a lot of so called Free download offers from
    others that might have a catch to it, like Malware - etc.

    You have of course to be careful installing free software, and only
    install the program itself, not the add-ons offered.

    but being offered by Microsoft would seem to be something safe.....

    Yes, and noting the experiences of the first users sold me on Win10.

    Wcry changed that, didn't it?

    Who is 'Wcry'?
