• Error 404 Thanks you

    Welcome back , We missed you !. I just wanted to let you that over at Error 404 im running 27 nets , 26 are ftn style and one qwk and the
    board is banging , running good and callers have really picked up . And
    I just wanted to say thanks for everything !. Also if you ever need a remote test PC let me know . I have couple window 10 systems sitting on shelf , or you can use Error 404 . Any who its great to have you back !

    Awesome to hear! I am considering picking up either a cheap laptop or Pi 4 for a BBS. I have my BBS on an old laptop but its bulk, loud, slow, and probably eats up power. I am leaning towards a cheapo $200-300 range laptop so I have more flexibility to move it between Windows/Linux should I want to test it.

    Your fsxNet node number is sitting here for you if/when you want to hook back up. :)

    I have to get my BBS laptop out of storage and going again but I would like to do that soon(ish). I put it away temporarily because I have a crazy lack of space where I am right now.

    Hey g00r00, let me know if a cloud VM slice sounds interesting to you and I'm happy to sponsor one suitable for running a BBS.

    So I went to get my laptop yesterday evening and it seems to be gone. I am shocked. I have no idea how it could have got stolen (or even if it did) but its not there.

    Its a shame too because I had just put at 500g SSD in it.

    I might be interested. At this point its looking like somehow my laptop was stolen? Its completely gone from storage and I need to try to figure out how that happened.

    So I need to pick up one of those $200-350 Walmart laptops or a Pi or find a way to get a server in the cloud somewhere

    Like I said, I'm happy to sponsor a digitalocean droplet. Avon has emailed me in the past, if you'd like to get in touch he has my info. You'd be on linux, not windows, but I hardly doubt that's an issue :)

    Crap... that barks big time. Hopefully it could still be filed somewhere you just haven't looked yet? I recall you getting that SSD too. Very sorry to
    hear of the loss.

    Heh, now that I remember which editor I am in :)

    I offered him an ArcaOS VM as well so he could develop an OS/2 port of
    the software (if we are talking about Mystic here) which would be
    totally awesome! :)

    Yeah it was just before I switched it over to Linux. I did a fresh install on a SSD with a dual boot Win10/Ubuntu. Its possible somehow it could have been moved, but I can't see where. There was only a little bit of space to check.

    I'm going to go back and try to look around again.

    No one has been able to get any version of OS/2 or Arca working with USB
    sticks in a VMware for me, so that has been mostly the requirement for the
    past 10 years if we want an OS/2 version again.

    I need an easy way to test and develop on it and to move code quickly between systems if I need to, and I don't have that.

    I'm sure I could get something working if I put some time into it, but really there might be one person who'd run the OS/2 version if that even so I am reluctant to make it a priority.

    Also OS/2 API information is nearly impossible to find, and if I remember in the past I had to do a lot of bug fixes for the OS/2 compiler too because no one is using it.

    Yeah...if it were me I wouldn't bother with OS/2 :P May as well try to port
    it to amigaos or something at this rate.

    That would be cool! I've actually been toying with that idea myself..
    probably nothing will come of it though.

    Hmm. Yeah, I don't run ArcaOS under VMWare. I run it under
    VirtualBox. It has better OS/2 and ArcaOS support.

    That would work too, if there was a way to use a USB key with it or something from the host machine. If I can ever get to that point I'll poke at it and
    see what I can do.
