<<Following up a message from Daryl Stout to ROBERT WOLFE on 2/12 about Re: Test >>
You were told incorrectly. My DixieNet, the FTN network, is still up
and running. There is an ISP called DixieNet that someone might have RW>confused me with. But, anyway, sorry to see you go, although I wish you RW>had confirmed it with me first before leaving.
It was winserver.org -- the domain I had been using with Internet
Rex for awhile. I never could get a connect with your system, and
never saw any traffic.
Plus, you never responded to me via email (wx4qz at arrl dot net)
or FIDONet Netmail to 1:19/33 -- so I didn't know what to think.
The networks I'm getting from Kris Jones and Gert Kofoed Andersen
will get the axe soon if I don't hear something from them.
I would have liked to keep the echoes, but with no netmail or
email replies, I figured all was gone.
I am going to have to echo Daryl's sentiments here. All connection to either os2bbs.org or winserver.org went dead. NO response from either one - for weeks.
No e-mail, no NetMail, no nothing.
I absolute abhor losing a Net, much less an entire Network.
Here are the test results that I depended on for concluding that DixieNet went AWOL:
