No problem Smile

Traffic is important but so is keeping the echo on what we call the Echolist.

The Echolist is a list of echo 'tag names' or agreed upon area names that
sysops may use when say they first set up their bbs, or when they need to
reinstall bbs software. Not all of the Zones in Fidonet use the Zone 1 (North
American) Echolist, but it is an international list for the most part.

You are very welcome, thank you for your comment Smile Speaking of which, I
should get a FidoGazette out shortly - Life gets a little crazy over here some

Take care,

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.
