I suppose if you're also using the Win10 machine for the BBS as
well as for internet-things then the security patches migh

Even so, I find that the vast majority of problems occur from
phishing scams that lure people to nefarious sites and THEN get
the damaging payload. But if you never click on an unsolicited
link in an email and stick with familiar sites, you can hum

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;
