    Hi Ricsi,

    I'm not sure what happens there but on my end and on other BBSes it looks ok, perhaps you have something mis-configured on your system?

    You send (in the previous message not in this one) some kind of BBS garbage. The first characters of your message read like this:

    Yes I am getting random bits of ANSI in Meatlotion's messages as well- it ends up scrambling the display. I would check the ANSI encoding on any signatures, footers etc to make sure its good.

    Hi Ricsi,

    The above looks a lot like ANSI escape sequences (not bbs garbage =) ), my BBS is a Mystic BBS so I can only assume that it's adding that for layout purposes as from memory ^[[1;1H is a cursor positioning call to move the cursor to row 1 column 1.

    No idea how they would be put in any other way, but the message I posted was just text, no ansi or I would have used [ANSI] in the subject.

    My signature does however use Mystic pipe codes, and I apologise for that if it's causing you a problem reading it.

    ANSI escape sequences _ARE_ BBS garbage!
    At least to me :)

    Anyhow either stop including that garbage in your messages, or at least mark them with [ANSI] so they will be filtered out here before they are shown in my editor.

    my BBS is a Mystic BBS so I can only assume that it's adding that
    for layout purposes as from memory ^[[1;1H is a cursor positioning
    call to move the cursor to row 1 column 1.

    I assume it is another Mystic bug.
    Sadly I have to say that that software is by far the buggiest I have ever seen. I can remember a time when it mixed kludges and sent them back to me.
    As the kludge was changed, I got a copy of my own messages, that could NOT be dupe deleted as Mystic changed the kludge.
    Sadly the author of Mystic is not a believer in testing.
    5 minutes of testing would have shown that there was a catastrophic bug included.
    But he put that version onto the web WITHOUT testing, and it was used by many people :(((

    So please crosscheck your config, and if that is fine, start debugging with the
    author.

    My signature does however use Mystic pipe codes, and I apologise for
    that if it's causing you a problem reading it.

    Well those do not disturb your text, its just garbage appended to the end.
    So I do not really have an issue with that.

    Hey man- yeah please remove any positioning code from your FTN messages, it breaks display on other boards. Color codes are fine :)

    Yeah that's fine of course, but the crazy thing I was trying to explain is
    that I didn't put any in, I literally just typed a text message, there were
    no colours in it except from the signature.

    I don't understand why the positioning codes were there, I certainly didn't
    put them there.

    Hi Ricsi! =)

    Thanks for your advice and help to show me what was going wrong with a
    message I posted, firstly I would like to apologise for this even happening.

    I have exported my original message that I typed (which didn't have any ansi codes in it that I put in - only "pipe codes" for the colour in my
    signature), and when I viewed the file in a text editor I can indeed see that what looks like every line has had an ansi code injected in it somehow.

    Now I know that I didn't spend ages typing all that in (as in the ansi
    codes), it was only just a normal message, no colour, no ansi, just a bit of text, or that is what I had intended, however somehow a lot of ansi was injected into my message and passed on to y'all.

    I am still trying to figure out how this happened, whether it is my system,
    the hub I connect with, or Mystic, or something else, and I hope that this message doesn't have all that ansi injected into it also, I just wanted to offer my apologise to you (and anyone else who got my message turn up with
    all that ansi in).

    I am sorry for causing you any issues with the message, as soon as I figure
    out how it happened in the first place I will address it immediately.

    With respect and best wishes.

    No issues!

    That is called Mystic :)
    You are really brave to use that software on a productive system ;))))

    I am still trying to figure out how this happened, whether it is my system, the hub I connect with, or

    Mystic,

    No need to search further ;)

    or something else,

    Highly probably not ;)

    and I hope that this message doesn't have all that ansi injected into
    it also,

    Nope ... this looks good!

    I just wanted to offer my apologise to you

    I think that there are much worse things :)
    I just came from the funeral of a work colleague.
    Had a stroke at 53 - the end :(((((
    A very, very nice and positive guy ...

    I am sorry for causing you any issues with the message, as soon as I figure out how it happened in the first place I will address it immediately.

    Good luck!
