================================================================= FOOD FOR THOUGHT ================================================================= Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing, and you'll never be criticized. -- Elbert Hubbard (1922) -----------------------------------------------------------------

================================================================= GENERAL ARTICLES ================================================================= Training Golded to play UTF-8 Part 1 By Michiel van der Vlist, 2:280/5555 Golded has limited support for reading and writing messages in UTF-8. There are two ways. One is using an external editor. The other way is to use translation tables. As ever so often both methods have pros and cons. Using an external editor. ========================= Golded has an option to use an external editor. Unfortunately this can only be invoked when writing a message. So to just read a message in utf-8 one has to "answer" it and when ready not save it. Make a file gold8.cfg that is a copy of your golded.cfg with the following statements: (replacing any with lines with the same keywords.) EDITOR <myutfeditor> @file EDITORFILE GOLDED.MSG XLATPATH d:\fido\golded\ XLATIMPORT UTF-8 XLATLOCALSET UTF-8 XLATEXPORT UTF-8 XLATCHARSET UTF-8 UTF-8 UTF_UTF.CHS where <myutfeditor> is the UTF-8 capable editor of your choice. I use the Windows version of Vi. An alternative for Windows is Notepad. For Linux there is nano. Almost any UTF-8 editor will do and there is plenty of choice. UTF_UTF.CHS is a dummy translation table who's main purpose it to get the '4' into the "CHRS: UTF-8 4" kludge line of the message. You may have this file already. If not get it from my system by file request or download http://www.vlist.eu/downloads/utf8_850.chs Start golded with "golded -cgold8.cfg" or make a .bat file to that effect. When answering or creating a message select "External Editor" and there you go... To be continued...

DOWN This node is temporarely down for both IPv4 and IPv6 PM Prospective Member. The node has demonstrated IPv6 capability but is not listed or does not advertise an IPv6 address in the Fidonet nodelist yet. Notes: To make an IPv6 connection to a node connected via 6to4 tunneling one may have to force the mailer into IPv6 (-6 option in binkd's node config for binkd up to 1.1a-96, -64 option for binkd 1.1a-97 and up when compiled with AF_FORCE=1). If the destination address is a 6to4 tunnel address (2002::/16) many OSs default to IPv4 if an IPv4 address is present.

================================================================= JAMNNTPD SERVERS LIST ================================================================= The Johan Billing JamNNTPd project This is a list of known JamNNTPd servers working. They are essentially the modern version of Bulletin Board Systems. You connect to them using the newsreader of your choice and you don't need any other software installed on your computer -- regardless of operating system -- but that favourite mail client of yours. Even smart phones can handle this, giving you the opportunity to get your daily doses of fidonet on the bus, tram or train on the way to your job, school or whatever.

================================================================= FIDONEWS INFORMATION ================================================================= How to Submit an Article If you wish to submit an article for inclusion in the Fidonews, here are some guidelines, if you send it as an attached file; the preferred method if you want reasonable control over how the published article will appear in the Fidonews: a) Plain text. If you could type it on your keyboard, it's probably quite OK. No line may be longer than 70 characters. b) Put a title to the article. Put the title in two times. The first time, on the first line, with an * before it. The second time, on the second line, without the * and centered. This will help in the format since the title with the * is removed and used in the index, the second line will become the headline. On the third line, put your name and FidoNet address, present or former. If former, you may want to add some other address where you can be reached for personal comments. c) Deadline for article submission is Sunday, 22:00 UTC. In case a) and b) above is not crystal clear, here's an excellent summary by Ward Dossche, a major article contributor: Piece of cake: 1) Ascii text 2) Line length of 70 3) Put this at the very top: *The title of your text The title of your text Your Name - Your Nodenumber The title is there twice, the line with the * is how it will be visible in the table of content. Help the Editor by following the above guides. Below are some subjects and the file extension for the article as set in the configuration file for the making of the Fidonews. Please help by putting the file extension of the correct subject on the file name if known. Ideas for Subject areas: Subject File | Subject File ----------------------------------|---------------------------------- From the *C's *.css | Rebuttals to articles *.reb Fidonet Regional News *.reg | Fidonet Net News *.net Retractions *.rtx | General Fidonet Articles *.art Guest Editorial *.gue | Fidonet Current Events *.cur

Put a .TXT on it and I'll try to figure out where it should be in the Fidonews. If you follow these simple guidelines, there should be little problem in getting your article published. If your submission is too far out of specs for the Fidonews, it will be returned to you and/or a message sent informing you of the problem. This DOES NOT mean that your article is not accepted. It means that there is something in it that I can not fix and I need your help on it. Send articles via e-mail or netmail, file attach or message to: Bj?rn Felten Fidonet 2:2/2 or 2:203/0 E-Mail b @ felten dot se Skype file bfelten IMPORTANT! If you send the article via e-mail, make sure you put the word "fidonews" somewhere in the subject line! That way it will always pass the spam filter, ending up in the proper folder. Please include a message, telling me that you have sent an article. That way I will know to look for it. -----------------------------------------------------------------
