    Looking for a good bbs package to try?  Allen Prunty has been
    working with a new "old" package that he noticed had been
    updated recently.  We've seen articles about WWIV in the 'gazette
    earlier... it's nice to me to see someone taking WWIV for a
    spin.

    Thank you to Vince Coen for sending this in :)
    
    I was testing the children in my Glasgow Sunday School class to
    see if they understood the concept of 'getting into Heaven'. 
    
    I asked them, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big jumble
    sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into
    Heaven?" "NO!" the children answered.  "If I cleaned the church
    every day, mowed the garden and kept everything tidy, would that
    get me into Heaven?" Again, the answer was a resounding "No!" By
    now I was starting to smile.  "Well, then, if I was kind to
    animals and gave sweeties to all the children, and loved my
    husband, would that get me into Heaven?" Again, they all
    answered "No!" I was just bursting with pride for them.  I
    continued, "Then how can I get into Heaven?" A six year old boy
    shouted, "Yuv got tae be fukin' dead" 
    Kinda brings a wee tear tae your eye...

    Dusting Off the Legacy Software
    By Allen Prunty  1:2320/100
    ==============================
    
    I know that there are some out there that probably do not think
    that legacy software should be used or upgraded.  That there is
    no value in the software that built and made Fidonet what it is
    today.  But I have to disagree...  many of us are in this hobby
    for the "retro" look of it.  Many new people have joined because
    the pure text of the BBS has far more content and depth than the
    mindless memes and emoji's that clutter the twitterverse and
    facebook pages.
    
    Imagine my joy when I discovered one of the oldest BBS softwares
    out there is currently under open source re-development.  I once
    was pretty famous (or was it infamous) about running different
    BBS Softwares on some of my node lines.  This was back in the
    day when I wrote articles for boardwatch using a pen name.  Of
    course in those days I was actually just finishing high school
    and entering Community college.  I had reviewed Synchronet,
    PCBoard, Wildcat, and yes WWIV.  While back in those days WWIV
    did not have a fidonet interface, I always liked the feel of it
    and it was insanely popular.  It had it's own network, WWIVnet,
    that thrived due to the fact it was everything that fidonet was
    not...  it had an underground feel and allowed handles.  The
    most unusual thing about WWIV was where other software was for
    sale either commercially or by shareware, WWIV distributed it's
    source code...  and encouraged young programmers to "Mod" it
    using Turbo Pascal and later Turbo C.  Many young programmers
    learned how to code using WWIV.  Some I can name have very
    lucrative jobs in the IT industry to this very day...  and it
    started with modding WWIV.
    
    When I found out that WWIV has been under development and the
    new leadership of the project has integrated Bink-P network
    transfers, a telnet server, and a web server I took notice. 
    This is something that has taken the old software out of the
    closet...  adding new life into something that many have very
    fond memories of.
    
    The team that is developing it are using the GITHUB model, so
    like in the old days, you can add enhancements to the project
    and it will be added into the core of the software.  The focus
    at this time seems to be the built-in FTN tosser, which has a
    few issues at the moment, but has rapidly fixed the issues as
    they arrive.
    
    Because it is open-source under the GITHUB model using the
    Apache License, those who have more knowledge with
    FTSC-Standards can go examine code and make recommendations, or
    better yet can help code it.  Open source will only serve to
    strengthen the project.
    
    WWIV has a few new features too... with high-bandwidth
    connections that did not exist in the 80s-90s during it's
    heyday, WWIV now has one of the richest full screen ANSI message
    reading interfaces I have ever encountered.  It's user
    experience is much like Golded, or d'Bridge's reader.
    
    The stock message editor is still just a line editor... and you
    will need to install one of the full screen external editors to
    bring the experience full circle, editors like TIDE, OPENEDIT
    and GEDIT work fine...  I've yet to get WWIVEdit to work with it
    perhaps someone will be able to help me with this one.
    
    For those who are interested you can start here to see the docs
    and download the latest stable version...  or if you dare, try
    the "unstable" version that has the built in tosser...  and take
    a walk on the wild side.
    
        http://wwivbbs.org
    
    Or if you want to take a look under the hood, report bugs, add
    advice to the FTSC Standards visit...
    
        https://github.com/wwivbbs/wwiv
    
    And for those who are in the *NIX universe, WWIV will work for
    you too.  It's came a long way from the old Borland Turbopascal
    days...  everything old is new once again.  I also have a vibe
    that for those who run OS/2 the code may be compilable for you
    guys too.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, 
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions via 
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-200-4076 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
