Extremely user-friendly ...
To be used as a point maybe. But as an echomail hub not.
As they taught me in Montana "There's a similarity between an opinion and an arsehole ... everybody has one" ...
What I mean to say is that I've used D'Bridge since 1988 or 1989 on a Tandy-1000SX with a 20MB hardcard in the very beginning. It served its purpose, also as a ZC and IC.
For years I handled a ton of echomail with DB during the period of Joaquim Homrighausen and his FD-groupies. DB stood out and performed well. I stopped handling large volumes of echomail as personally I feel a ZC should stay away from distribution, also of files.
There was the period when it was abondoned by its original developer Chris Irwin after he came up with a Y2K-fix which was worse than what he fixed and I developed my own work-arounds. I developed my own procedures to make it IP-capable which I use to this day. Around that time there was just one person using it, me ...
Then Nick popped-up after some years. He got the code, started to clean-up trash which Chris Irwin had left behind, I bombarded him for years with bugs and stuff to add and it became a very fruitful operation.
One can say a lot of things about DB, but also about other successful packages. As for DB... 34 years I've used it now and I'm a satisfied customer. It served my purpose as a ZC for a long time.
As for 64KB messages ... that's about 16 A4-pages full of text. Nobody writes such long netmails, nobody would bother to read them either.
Of course, this is my opinion and, look at the opening paragraph at the beginning, I also have an arse.
