8 Bit Is the Future

The 8-Bit Revolution: How We’ve Been Doing It All Wrong It’s time to admit it, folks. We’ve been sold a lie. The so-called “progress” of technology that has led us from 16-bit computers to 32-bit and now 64-bit machines has been nothing but a giant step backwards. The future of computing lies not in more bits, but in fewer. That’s right, I’m talking about the glorious return of the 8-bit computer.

XQ Weather Not Working After A47 Upgrade

OK so it looks like a lot of people have overlooked some info in the upgrade.txt for Mystic at or around the A47 mark, so I will make some lives easier by describing the issue and how to fix it. Firstly, this only really applies to anyone using Mystic A47+ and the XQ-Weather door, there’s part of the door that allows you to scroll through some weather stats using the Mystic ANSI viewer however since A47 Mystic uses a new ansi viewer, and the configuration is done now with an ini file.

What Can I Use a BBS For?

What is a BBS for? What could I use it for? Reading and contributing to public messages about any topic you care for; Commonly a BBS will be connected to one or more FTN networks, that is, networks that push out echomail (and often files) to any system attached to them, in a similar way to the old usenet message and binaries groups used to be. For me personally, I like to read messages in the various message bases, sometimes I will reply or create a topic of my own, but for the most part I read more than I say.

What Is a BBS?

What is a BBS? Aside from the software that is, what is it and why is it? To me, a BBS (unless it’s supposed to be commercial) is a personal thing, and should exist just because YOU want it and/or need it. Having other visitors use it also is a bonus. If you want to make it a place others want to visit regularly, make it unique, make it exciting, the visitors will come.
