    Subject: The Thunderbolt BBS is OFFLINE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

    Internet Rex 2.29 is TOAST. Something has happened with the program, a
    memory module, or something done by Windows 10. So, I can't poll for
    incoming netmail or echomail...or send outgoing netmail or echomail.

    Combine that with Tornado Season arriving along with the threat of thunderstorms and severe weather, and my having to deal with several
    medical things outside the BBS...and not having much time to work with
    the BBS, I have, for now, SHUT DOWN THE THUNDERBOLT BBS.

    I don't know when I can get with Marc Lewis, my FIDONet hub, on coming
    into the system via Team Viewer, to get a look at things...or for me to
    study and set up BinkIt with Synchronet. I am about to pass out at the computer, so I'm going to go to bed way earlier than I normally do

    So, for now, in the respective nodelists, until further notice, please
    mark The Thunderbolt BBS as ** DOWN **. The autopost utilities will
    run, so I don't have to recreate them in the Task Scheduler with Windows
    10. I will advise as soon as possible when the BBS is back up...but it
    might be April, the way my luck has been running. For those in the
    FIDONet Test Messages area, who wanted me to be offline, I hope you're
    happy now.

    Sorry for any inconvenience...your understanding is appreciated. I hate
    to consider the option of killing the BBS after nearly 30 years of operation...but maybe I need to get away from it for awhile.
