• Problems With IBBS Scores

    From Daryl Stout@HURRICAN to All on Wed Sep 13 01:04:37 2017
    I'm curious if the Sunrise Doors InterBBS server is down, or was affected by Hurricane Irma. I tried both the current version of the 16-bit InterBBS processing software, and the original version, and the error shows that it never connected, in that it timed out.

    The following was sent to our mailing list on 9/14/17:

    After 20+ years of running the Sunrise Door Software InterBBS
    competition, we will be terminating the service effective immediately!

    We are forced to take this step due to our host's technical changes and
    my inability to make the required changes for a variety of reasons.

    Please disregard any notifications you may receive over the next days
    while we work to complete the termination.

    It has been an enormous pleasure to have been able to make this service available all these years and we value your interaction and support!

    All other aspects of Sunrise Door Software continues....

    Al,

    I hated to see that happen.

    It was a fierce competition, but fun.

    All other aspects of Sunrise Door Software continues....

    Yours have been one of the longest running and supported software
    product lines, Al...and I've got most all of them on the BBS. In fact, I registered them BEFORE they went to "donationware". I think the only one
    I didn't do was the MatchMaker door. But, I also registered some that
    are no longer available...such as "Caller ID Check" and "In Use".

    Sorry it took so long to reply to this. I've had problems with message network feeds, and except for FIDONet (which I'm keeping at FTN), am
    converting the rest to QWK Networking...which are "automated" under
    Synchronet.

    Daryl,
    Appreciate the kind words....
    We are still here, just no InterBBS

    It's less hassle anyway. While the competition between BBS's was
    fierce, I was the only one playing over here.

    But, with helping my 91 year old Mom...doing all the driving,
    shopping, check writing, etc. for her during the day...then with ham
    radio traffic nets at night...I've rarely had time for the BBS.

    I finally got the message networks working again...FTN with FIDONet,
    and everything else is QWK Networking.

    BTW, I did get that MatchMaker key...thanks. :) Now, I'll see if I can
    make some matches...got to start a fire for the cold winter nights. <G>
