    if you are referencing *.wpusa.dynip.com, that was my old domain that i dropped at the beginning of 2019 for $REASONS... the new domain is sestar.synchro.net which is running a completely different software suite... no more bubblegum and shoestring tying together disparate packages...

    I use that to catch on things when things awry or other things to
    quickly find some info in echo's I don't pull..

    i've not tested extensivly but news should be available on the above domain (no more subdomains like news, mail, smtp, pop3, etc)... you can also read via the web interface via http or https... to write a message, you need to create a new account first... then you can use that to login with registered user privs to read/write as you like... i was unable to convert the old user database to the format used by the new software... besides, after some 30 years, it was long past time for a change ;)

    Hello mark!

    Hmmm. I guess I didn't use in 2019.. hhmmm... any way.... OK.. I have a test setup of JAMNNTPD that I fixed to respond correctly to PAN's requirements or some RFC that PAN was folling or whatever ... never moved it outside testing.... nor much of what I did ... I had wanted to move it to a VPS at my DC.. but who knows it lanquished and I only use my internal VM ....

    I get it to use something easier to setup/maintain.. I just like ARCHAIC setups! :) :) ;) I am old... sue me! I still might play with getting FrontDoor to run in a DOSBox on Linux to go via TCP/IP v. modem.. like I said I like my old school ways! DUH I wouldn't be on FTN stuff otherwise... new hotness ain't always the greatest thing...

    Ok.. I'll look at it later.. since I need to create an account...

    Any one know what happen to Net 393 and Ben Richey?????? I sent an email to address I had no joy.... seems to drop out of the nodelist about OCT 19 or so....
