Spitfire
In case anyone is reading this echo, there should be three Spitfire
BBS's coming online shortly. Each is at differen stages of development.

You can reach what I've done, if you're curious, at
gapbbs.rdfig.net:3141

Made mostly cosmetic changes. Added all the Spitfire files from Buffalo
Creek website and a few other files.

So I will post something here when I find out more about the other two
bbs's.

Thought it was someone else's board...but stopped by yesterday & took a look.
Liked what I saw....since that's the look I was going for when I tweaked the
TG menus to use the RG package a couple of weeks ago.

Wasn't Spitfire a commercial package back in the day? Is it still one?

Yes, I setup a Spitfire bbs trying to help a fellow sysop get his up to
telnet into. I used NetSerial and now he is running with it. He had
his registered Spitfire. Commercial, no, Shareware with 85.00 price.

It runs well here, just got to learn more to get more down. Only bad is
that utils to bring echo mail are pre2000 and dates get mangled when
importing Hoping for a fix.

Was talking to someone else...believe Sean Dennis (not sure) he was looking
for a way to run his registered software.

I've got the downloads from them on the board from their website. Never set
it up...but love all these retro boards.

You would think being a shareware package...the company would provide Y2K
apps which would not have this issue.
