    Hi everyone,

    I am on a database contract lasting until Feb 6th. This requires my absolute dedication, so I likely will not be able to reply to Fido messages promptly.

    Urgent matters please send me a Netmail - My Netmail is sync'd to my Internet Email so I can see it right away.

    Hi Nick,

    Urgent matters please send me a Netmail - My Netmail is sync'd to my Internet Email so I can see it right away.

    I've got to learn how to do that between this OS/2 machine and my Win 10 machine. So far no net between them but I'll see what I can do with WiFi

    I wrote a custom process in D'Bridge to do this,

    Good morning Nick,

    OK, I don't need D'Bridge or other external programs because everything
    is built-in into the BBS software PCBoard.

    Gotta see in the manual what I can do. I do have the manual for the
    Programming Language Manual as well.


    Have a nice day,

    I can tell you horror stories about RC's incompetent to generate a REGION-segment and ZC's incompetent at sending-out a ZONE-segment...

    Gone are the days of "Well, just replace 'm" ... we've landed at the point where you sometimes must work with whatever is talking to you.

    D'Bridge was the topic. For PCBoard I've had manuals for all verions
    since v14.5a of 1992. For the present v15.23 I have both the sofware
    as well as the "Programming Language v3." manuals.

    Presently I'm also using some new PCB files from v15.4 (Beta).


    Have a nice day,

    I printed out a copy of D'Bridge's manual a long time ago, but it was lost in the storm of 2005. The user really doesn't need a printed mamual for it bbecause it has context sensitive help, which means all the user has to do is oress F1 in any area for help and/or suggestions.

    OK, so far I've managed without any external programs for PCBoard, but
    if it becomes necessary I do now know that a manual isn't needed for
    D'Bridge.

    Thanks!
