If I go to the gun range it cost me money. If I go golfing... it cost me
money... If I play with the stupid BBS... it cost me money. I was one of the
first to get WildCat 5... paid in advance and waited for the software to be
completed. I have always been loosly updated, hence I only had to activate my
AUP ... but my installed verson on my HDD not functional and I do nort want to
look for my install disks so I Santronics to send me a copy. So here I wait
untill I get my install disk..
I have played with other software, SynchroNET & Mystic, the only two worth
mentioning, and I keep getting drawn back to WINS. The only problem I can see,
and I'm not looking hard, is that Sanrtronics is spending alot of time on the
larger aspects of the software, webserver, email server, and all the
commercial aspects.... I wish more work is/was done on the telnet side and the
rlogin... Anyway, we'll see what happens...
Thanx for responding...
