Waldo's Place USA

Fidonet, RemoteAccess, Frontdoor, Fastecho Support Site

Where do you want to go?






Quick overview:

This site/URL is the internet web side of Waldo's Place USA, an old-fashioned, text-based, MS-DOSv3.xx aged, Fidonet BBS. We are a Support and BETA testing site for RemoteAccess BBS software, the Frontdoor FTN mailer, and the Fastecho FTN/BBS message tosser/handler. RemoteAccess is an "old style" text-based MS-DOS oriented Bulletin Board System. Frontdoor is used by Fidonet Technology Networks for transferring FTN style netmail and echomail messages and files. Fastecho is a message handler designed for FTN style mail packets and bundles. Its job is to toss newly arrived messages from other FTN systems into the various supported BBS message storage formats and to scan messages entered on the BBS out of the BBS message storage systems.

The Internet Traffic Report monitors the flow of data around the world. It then displays a value between zero and 100. Higher values indicate faster and more reliable connections.

Quote #47 from "children-of-dune":

What you of the CHOAM directorate seem unable to understand is that you seldom find real loyalties in commerce. When did you last hear of a clerk giving his life for the company? Perhaps your deficiency rests in the false assumption that you can order men to think and cooperate. This has been a failure of everything from religions to general staffs throughout history. General staffs have a long record of destroying their own nations. As to religions, I recommend a rereading of Thomas Aquinas. As to you of CHOAM, what nonsense you believe! Men must want to do things out of their own innermost drives. People, not commercial organizations or chains of command, are what make great civilizations work. Every civilization depends upon the quality of the individuals it produces. If you over-organize humans, over-legalize them, suppress their urge to greatness -- they cannot work and their civilization collapses.

-- A letter to CHOAM, Attributed to The Preacher
