    Um, that text is defined in the text.dat (line 164), in v3.10.

    do i have to hex edit the damn sbbs.dll again?

    If you don't want to upgrade to damn v3.10. :-)

    He could always use an OCTAL-editor...

    Then he wouldn't have to take his shoes off to do the arithmetic!

    hehe... i have no real motivation to upgrade. i checked out the whatsnew.txt and, while i have to say the list of what got done is cool -- there's really noting major in there that would warrent me to upgrade. i'm sure i'll do it sooner or later, but right now... everything is working fine.

    As I said, in v3.10. It's hardcoded in v3.00.

    hehe... i have no real motivation to upgrade. i checked out the whatsnew.tx and, while i have to say the list of what got done is cool -- there's really noting major in there that would warrent me to upgrade. i'm sure i'll do it sooner or later, but right now... everything is working fine.

    Well I guess now you have a reason. :-)

    A wize, but regretfully rare decision. It's amazing how many people
    upgrade "just because". Assuming my current installation (of whatever) is stable, I prefer NOT to upgrade, unless there is some combination of new features and/or bug-fixes that I want to take advantage of. We still run Oracle 7.3.4 despite v9.x.x being out. Because 7.3.4 does everything we
    need and the upgrade has the potential to affect us adversely.

    But there's a LOAD of good stuff in the latest SBBS releases, and even so,
    much of it is the foundation for goodies still to come.
