Hey Y'all..

Modern computers, Windows 10 and it's Edge browser may not be compatible with this old bbs software. I am getting reports of system errors from members, probably a good reason callers are down to nearly nothing.

Windows 10 is a data harvester. Add Microsoft's EDGE Browser and we have a problem. Edge downloads meta from every webpage you visit, It's how Microsoft builds its Cortina database. And EDGE has no clue what this BBS is.

Google Chrome is another problem. If you allow web pages to be pre-loaded by Googles servers messages via the web probably will not post and a "resource not found" or other error might pop up.

This is OLD OLD OLD Software. The last update was in the year 2000. One browser that still works good is Firefox. It can be downloaded here.

Otherwise, what more can i say.

Regards, Doc

Go on Ebay. Buy a thin client with XP embedded. Use that for your old software.

Technology has evolved a lot since the late 90's. Your suggestion is fine for guys like us, but everyday people are used to modern operating systems and web browsers. 

The BBS is in it's last year online.. Callers are down to 1-3 daily, not a whole lot of encouragement to keep it maintained.
