Always easiest, and if you really want to do some
legerdemain you can even modify them on the fly from remote.

I took a good long look at it, I wanted fully functional
areafix and 4d tic support, but I found another areafix that worked with squish
bases and was text file configured, so I
still just forgot tic areas for 4d points and did things
with batch files to send nodediffs and the like to them,
without a *.tic file.

I think the only thing I lost by using the other areafix
over seal was no autoforwarding of requests, but I fixed
that by having areafix messages kept and forwarded to my
point so I could then manually request them for a downlink.
. Sqafix didn't exist then either.

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;
