File traffic is not like message traffic, you will only get new files
when one of the FDN hatches out new files. There was a new Binkd
hatched for the OS/2 version of binkd recently.
Is this hatched as an executable, or do you have to be able to compile
it on the OS/2 box?
It is an OS/2 executible with a sample binkd.cfg and libbz2.dll.
It's requestable from here as BINKD104.ZIP. I don't have an OS/2 setup so I haven't tried it.
I have been using IREX for this but the daemon mode eats a lot of resources and slows the BBS down. Would like to try to get away from using it.
It's been a long time since I ran OS/2 but even then binkd was my mailer of choice. :)
That file arrived here in the GFD.FTN.MAIL area in the GFD (German File Distribution) FDN. There are many areas in that FDN for all types of files for OS/2 and is active.
That is a Fidonet FDN but it's not on the Filegate. If you (or anyone) would like to link for that (or other file/mail areas) we can do that.
