I have sent out a msg to all z1 hubs as specified in the FILEGATE.ZXX file
regarding this and am happy to take on the FILEGATE role.

The other problem is echo distribution as I do not know who acts as a major
star hub for such.

In any event I will need to contact all File source again as shown the the
FILEGATE lists to arrange transfer to myself and also arrange to set up all
other nodes that are current connected to Janis for file and echo's.

Note for all my system ISP speeds are 210Mb down and 20Mb up so should have
enough bandwidth providing I can ensure that I do not get every one polling at
once Smile

If needed I will crash out any traffic whenever system congestion allows just
as I do now for the other downlinks.

The file are GFD is from a European source so that will not be affected how
ever that only is for OS/2 areas.

That all said file traffic is very low these days other than the stuff that
comes via NASA.

Personally North American and Atlantic weather maps is not very useful for
Europe as it is way too late to be useful and in any event there is not enough
information such as winds aloft to be really practical for forecasting at
least as a pilot.

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.
