    Good that he's not really giving up... :) And nice that there was
    less damage than first thought... :)
    Yes, appears the attitude is he gets kicked, down for a bit licking
    wounds but figures out how to get back up and fight back.
    This is just too important to him really to let it go too easily...
    and with other people pulling for him too there's encouragement to
    continue... :)
    Agree. LIS it's sort of the get knocked down, OK, enough is enough I
    give up, ...no, I will not give up! and he comes back fighting.
    Yup, the funk doesn't last too long....
    He seems to come through as a lot better now his new system is being build: there's light at the end of the black hole!

    Um... yeah... good simile... <G>

    The important thing is that he's working on getting himself back up
    and running... A rather odd spew of messages from Apr 14 to Apr 24
    appeared in MEMORIES a couple of days ago, and then nothing since...
    Still working on things, I guess... :)
    The messages in Memories appeared to be from Daryl/his site? Possible
    he attempted to get back on-line and the message timestamps got
    screwed up and so uploaded.
    Yes, from Daryl's computer/bbs... I don't think the timestamps were
    disturbed, more like they just hadn't gone out yet, and when he tried
    getting things set-up, this batch went out... The real messages were
    all the 14th, the rest were the daily Burma-Shave ads from the 14th
    to the 24th....
    Years ago I had a private computer tech (had his own shop) replace
    either the PSU or the motherboard (maybe both) on my computer because
    at the time going into the Christmas season and I didn't have time to
    do the repair. He powered up to test and the system would usually do
    the automated BBS events -- he half-knew what they were/why occurring
    but had to wait a few minutes for them to complete. I don't have any auto-posts but could see where when Daryl was getting back on-line all
    the missed events would trigger and so be uploaded.

    And as I mentioned in yesterday's set of messages, apparently setting up
    ILink on his computer let another batch out to here, from Apr 18th...

    I also suggested he didn't have to come back to ILink as a SysOp:
    could come back as a regular member.
    For sure.... just has to find a bbs to call that has ILink... ;)
    I've not yet checked out calling any other bbses that might carry it,
    though... probably should sometime...
    Last I mentioned anything he seemed to pretty much dismiss the
    user-only aspect.

    Not really surprising... From what I've seen, once a sysop, it gets into
    one, and never lets go... ;)

    Nancy,

    He seems to come through as a lot better now his new system is being build: there's light at the end of the black hole!

    Um... yeah... good simile... <G>

    I still think that light is a train entering the tunnel. :P

    And as I mentioned in yesterday's set of messages, apparently setting
    up ILink on his computer let another batch out to here, from Apr
    18th...

    Yeah, the system crashed just after April 18...and didn't get back up
    until just before June.

    Last I mentioned anything he seemed to pretty much dismiss the
    user-only aspect.

    Not really surprising... From what I've seen, once a sysop, it gets
    into one, and never lets go... ;)

    That's right.

    Not unusual for the mail tossers to 'get confused' and think old mail is
    new if a flag/bit isn't set or recognized. ...I've had more than a few
    times where my e-mail on Q.com (Qwest --> CenturyLink) has been re-re-re downloaded because of a change on their end. ...So a thousand and some messages later........



    I also suggested he didn't have to come back to ILink as a SysOp:
    could come back as a regular member.
