Instead of contacting me about any issues, he does this. I wonder if Al SD>realizes that unlike him, the rest of us have lives and treat this as a SD>hobby?
Oh, I don't care if anyone hates me. I've been doing this for the better pa SD>of a quarter-century and people like Al here come and go like turds in a SD>toilet. ;)
Or like ham radio...we think it's an obsession <G>. It's like, do
you [Sysop/Ham Radio Operator] take this [BBS/Ham Radio Rig] to be
your lawfully wedded spouse?? <G>
Plus, the Sysop may have other things in his life outside the BBS or
ham radio right now, such as family or medical issues. Sean, I know
you and I have both, as we share the fact that we're hams and Sysops.
:) By the way, Tim Grooms is also a ham and a Sysop.
Besides, Sean...if you're the moderator of the echo, you have the
right to say what stays and what goes. If the Sysops don't like it,
they can drop the echo from their BBS.
You have been flaming me all afternoon in email and on the Networks. Like I said in my final email to you, move on dude.. You don't like sysOp's no one likes you. Get over it.. I have been doing this stuff off and on since 1986
Ahhhh c'mon... lets put this way. Noawadays, when new users who call my BBS elect to ues the "Page Sysop" feature, I break into chat and I'm accused of being a bot. I'm not real. What can I do to prove I am real? Aside from confessing my self-grooming habits?

Damn... I'm gonna hafta netmail Nick, his Bot is posting public
There's plenty of lids in this side of the woods too.
I didn't know Tim was a ham. I should start asking people...
This was a problem on several points: I wasn't told about potential issues I SD>could have corrected nearly immediately; the evident lack of attention given SD>to the fact that I don't run Linuxnet; being accused of harassment when I SD>brought this up; and just being a general dumbass.
"I think I'm a great fit for Dumas and Dumas!"
I brought this up in here to prove that my attitude problem towards certain SD>people is generally warranted. I don't try to let a hobby give me a case of SD>the fantods anymore but every once in a while a special case pops up.
It's done and over with now. For now. There will be someone else coming SD>along one of these days. :D
Speaking of BBS, I switched my system back to MBSE. I unfortunately had a l SD>of issues with the ArcaOS system. I never got around to recommissioning the SD>Linux server and I'm glad I didn't now. Score a point for procrastination SD>caused by the lack of a hand.
Speaking of hand, it looks like the flexor tendon in my right pinky is shot. SD>I can move the pinky enough to use it for typing but I can't straighten the SD>finger out. On April 22 I am seeing a hand surgeon about the possibility of SD>surgery to fix the pinky or if we should just let it be. Not being in great SD>shape might just cause the surgery to cause more issues than it would fix.
But I am out of the hand brace and am using "buddystrips" (Velcro pieces wit SD>a special anti-sweat fabric on one side) to keep the pinky attached to my ri SD>finger on the same hand.
While not feeling like a malcontent, I am thankful to be alive and worry abo SD>silly things. The alternative could be worse...
At least Nick answers chats. My BBS machine is in a shed. If you try
to chat with me, well, to paraphrase a song, "My Computer Gently Weeps".
There's an asshole in every crowd but over the years, the BBS scene has proven to have a bumper crop at any given time.
Like me or hate me, I'm here and you will have to deal with me. :)
In a shed? Do you live in the 'country' too? If so, a TRUE Southern/Western SysOp would have his BBS next to his horse!
Yes, I do. I live in Limestone, Tennessee (an unincorporated area in between Greeneville on the west and Jonesborough and Johnson City on the east). I have no horses but I do occasionally have mice in the shed.
It's a large 12x20' shed built locally by a Mennonite family that delivers their sheds all over the US.
