Wow. Hard to let go of stuff even when it's digital, eh?

The files act as memories though, don't they? Hard to let go of
a file when it "brings back" a memory of it and the story behind

It's much like that with books for me. I don't necessarily want
to get rid of a book, even though I've read it. I want to be
able to look at the book and recall the times and circumstances
around it.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
