Sounds grate. Might run into Asian girls on bbs lol doubt it. By the
way what is Z3?
LOL! Anyways, Fidonet is split to functional 'zones'. Zone 1 (Z1) is
North America (USA, Canada)
Z2 is europe across Russia
Z3 is Australia and New Zeland
Z4 is South America and Mexico
Z5 was Africa
Z6 was Asia
The center populated BBS area of Z6 falls in the same longitude as Z3 hence has a good time for ZMH match (when sites are supposed to not allow callers and stay open just for traffic between BBSs). In fact, when I first became the Z6 coordinator, one of the first thngs I did was change the Z6 ZMH hour to match Z3.
Z6 and Z3 shared many things including message feeds. In fact, they shared the same person for the echomail coordinator when I got there.
The Z3 remaining sysops voted summer of 2007, to move to Z3 when I was leaving so I transited them over. There were 7-8 BBSs at the time left.
