    So are you moving away from Exchange?

    No Sir. Right now:

    1. Exchange NNTP Server [works, need to tighten down any loose screws]
    2. Exchange FTN Tosser [works, added statisics last night, and a PAUSE
    if disk space < 1GB]
    * And both of those handled over 300,000 Usenet messages (via Nick's Gateway) without headache.

    3. Exchange Setup [primary focus right now]
    4. Exchange BBS 3.1 paused - I am working on PCBoard v16, and
    incorporated my UTF8 auto-detection code, my JAMmb API. The plus is, I
    will be releasing PCBoard v16 as "The Business" type of BBS, and
    "Exchange" as the WHAT CAN I make it do type of BBS. This was inspired
    recenly by TitanFTN BBS - it was so clean, simple, and works. There are
    times K.I.S.S. is just better. ;-) and Exchange supports RUIAT protocol (allowing for screens like: https://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/scale_medium/0/7667/1456341-115 150205_01.png
    - or nicer).

    I should have PCB16 out the door in production by August, then I resume Exchange and the RUIAT protocol testing.

    How did you get the code for PCB16?
