Thank you. For the longest time, FTP links like that wouldn't
work from you system. Now they do.

The one on TRMB (also Synchro) doesn't load.

Thanks for that. Then the possibly for net-owners or othernet
moderators to employ the Elist system could be usable.

An ECHOFIND system (akin to FILEFIND) would be a nice
improvement to the FTN messaging experience.

Maybe the ELIST system itself could incorporate a query
mechanism that responds via netmail.

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;
