    Gert, I am having problems polling your FTN.
    It keeps saying sesion aborted.

    All of Gert's networks are effed up, as usual. and he's not responding
    to emails, as usual.

    got M_BSY: Too many servers

    I think it's time to let these dead networks die.

    It's a shame. I like the idea because some of the echoes but there's
    just not the traffic any more to justify so many of them. There's
    really only need for one or two networks. It's not like the philosophy
    isn't the same. No flaming, be kind, don't abuse the network etc. etc.

    Maybe FSX could be that network. It's busy, probably the first network
    other than Fido a lot of sysops add. I am sure Avon wouldn't be against expanding the number of groups to take up where other networks get
    dropped. pinet for example, I doubt we need an entire network dedicated
    to Rpis when a single echo should do the job. There really isn't that
    much traffic.

    Agreed on all points.

    wouldn't be against expanding the number of groups to take up

    should do the job. There really isn't that much traffic.

    Yup, I think it's already been established that FSX is here to stay, and
    has a lot of value. It was less than a year ago that Avon did add a
    bunch of new echos, so yes I'm sure some more could be added if needed.
    The RPI echo on Fido is semi-active, but could be improved with more
    posters and better content, which might naturally happen if it were the
    only game in town.

    Does Gert run Pi Net now?

    That network was pretty busy when it first started, but it dried up quick.
    Both FIDO and TQW have echoes dedicated to the Pi.

    Your system is amazing. The nntp part is a nice way to provide

    Most of the potential users are probably hanging out on their
    smartphones. Aftershock and Hotdoged are cool tools, but they
    have a bit of a learning curve for the average user. Telegram
    + @Fido2telebot is a much simpler and viable choice.

    Once linked up to BBSes via the phones, perhaps those users can
    be made aware that there are ways to enhance the echomail/bbs
    experience on a desktop/laptop.

    Too bad, that sysops in general are poor marketers of their own
    hobby.

    I'd like to provide an nntp newsfeed for my users, but I'm not sure how
    to do it, other than importing every single nntp group into synchronet
    and I don't think that's really feasible.

    Also, I would want people posting to usenet as their own account and
    since my nntp server is remote from my BBS, I'd have to script some
    sort of user editor to sync the bbs with usenet.

    Echomail is just another flavor of Netmail.

    Even I can do that, limiting myself to Netmail only.
    But why miss out on all the other fun?

    I have a few friends I've traded banter with privately for years now and I find thats enough enjoyment for me. Its nice to converse that way without someone else chiming in.

    Fidonet is a community of sysops (and probationary sysops).
    Not just individuals who wish to limit themselves to two-person
    private communications.

    All of the echoes I'm tempted to put on Passthru for all my links with maybe
    just a small number of ones I "have" to participate >left on my board.

    Why go through all that trouble when a simple email account will do?

    If something is important or at least mildly amusing then I'm sure someone will bring it to my attention.

    Then why run a BBS or be a member of Fidonet?

    Theres just too much noise I beginning not to care for anymore. Test messages are skipped and I don't care about discussing Linux or other BBS software or Russia or the toppings preferred on my pizza or whatever.

    Start your own echo and name yourself as moderator/facilitator/god.

    My problem is not with not being able to connect, but with no traffic
    even when I do connect.

    Pinet, Scinet, and some others are pretty dead.

    I tried to revive Scinet with a topic and then it just died because, as
    you say, no participation.

    I noticed that. Thanks for trying. :)

    That's probably because the current flock of sysops are poor
    marketters and don't know how to attract a plain-ol' user.

    There are some current sysops who have publically declared that users
    are an extinct part of fidonet.

    If they are happy that way, and want to run a system that way, more power
    to them I guess. :)

    Hello Nigel,

    With maybe one or two exceptions, I'm finding that Othernets tend
    to have the same Sysops, same topics, same noise-factor.

    That about sums it up. We just don't have the user base to
    support such a diverse number of networks. I've got 1899 echoes
    on my BBS and I expect that maybe a fraction of them get any
    traffic.

    Your system is amazing. The nntp part is a nice way to provide
    outreach.

    I'd like to provide an nntp newsfeed for my users, but I'm not sure how
    to do it, other than importing every single nntp group into synchronet
    and I don't think that's really feasible.

    There are a number of ways. JAMNNPTd is designed for that purpose.
    And one does *not* have to include every single nntpd group known to
    man ...

    Does Gert run Pi Net now?

    Actually, no. But that's another sysop who can't keep his shit on. I'm about to delink from them all. I thought it was a nice idea to carry as many networks as I can, but then I think I'm the only sysops who cares
    if he can connect or not.

    Did you manage to connect to my VKRadio hub lately? I did find another issue last week and things seem to be working better.

    VKRadio is still not connecting for sestar (IPv4 only if that matters)... it still gets a timeout with binkd...

    I also cannot connect to VKRadio (or DevNet) with IPv4. My logs show
    this:

    Attempting poll for node 432:1/100@vkradio
    evnt BINKPOLL JSBinkP/4 callout to 432:1/100@vkradio started
    evnt BINKPOLL Connecting to 432:1/100@vkradio at bridge.vkradio.com:24554
    evnt BINKPOLL Error 104 (Connection reset by peer) in recv() of first byte of packet header, timeout = 120

    I think it's been that way for a while now, looking back through logs...

    interesting... you're getting a "reset by peer" error whereas mine with binkd is just a timeout...

    mine has been happening since 2022 Jan 16, i think... i'll bet there's a ton of echomail sitting there waiting to be delivered...

    About that same time frame since I last saw traffic.
