    Tim,

    either way.. PLEASE get back into BBSLink.. your missing out on some excellen K>gaming..

    I had to drop it, because needing to use PeerBlock to block out the
    bots, and other countries, meant the BBS wouldn't connect to the games server...never mind very few over here were playing the games.

    Plus, I dropped the message areas as well, since you said that part of
    the network was shut down.

    Now, if I could get the CAPTCHA deal with SBBS working (I'm still
    having issues understanding the docs), I might reconsider.

    True..

    Dunno if you would need peerblock so much if you woukd jus tlet sbbs do its job.. I get a new bot in every once in a while, and zap.. its gone..

    Now, if I could get the CAPTCHA deal with SBBS working (I'm still
    having issues understanding the docs), I might reconsider.

    Captcha? in Ecwebv4? I think I tested mine a long time ago and had any issues, but if it is the one with ecebv4 (only one I can think unless its the older interface) speak with Echicken on that one.. dunno for sure there.

    I'm not using the ecwebv3 or 4 right now. I found a modified version
    of the basic theme, and was using that. I haven't had the energy this
    week to try to get it set up.

    The CAPTCHA deal was one done I think by Lord Blackfair...but I was
    having trouble understanding some of the docs. These program and utility authors need to realize that not all of us are as computer/programming
    literate as they are.

    I lot of it is actually notated in the JS and for me is a bit easier than going back and froth from docs anyway. I remember seeing a captcha at one time in sncweb, but I think that was being used in the time I took my hiatus from bbsing, So I actually went from the first runemaster type versions straight to ecweb. Wish I could help you more.

    No worries. I had been iced in since Tuesday, when we got all the snow
    and ice...today was my first day out, and I had to get some groceries
    for my Mom. So, I haven't done much BBS work today. I have to go back to
    her place tomorrow to put her trash can back up...garbage pickup was
    delayed a day for all the icy roads.

    When I ran VADV32, Tim Cornett did a CAPTCHA deal, and I know Lord
    Blackfair has one for here. I'll try to contact him on his BBS before
    Sunday, as we're going from a threat of winter to a threat of tornadoes
    in less than a week. Such is life in Tornado Alley/Dixie Alley.

    There were snow-nadoes in part of Saline County, southwest of Little
    Rock, before sunrise last Tuesday. I've seen the dust devils during the
    summer, but I wouldn't want to get into them...you can get blasted by sandspurs!!

    Ouch, I would presume that would be worse than walking in front of an active sandblaster..

    It's about as bad. Never mind the saying that "life's a beach, then
    you get sand in your crack". :P

    That was a bear getting the sand out of the clothes, bathing suit,
    shoes, etc. Nudists don't have to worry about the clothing, but they get
    the sand more readily. :P
