I did not know that.

Speaking as the "family IT guy," which I get the feeling a few others on here are as well, I'm not sure I'd say that the industry continues to let consumers believe that because of convenience. From my personal experience, trying to diagnose a hang or slow-down condition on a Windows system can get very time-consuming. At some point, it's simply easier to "start from scratch" by wiping and reinstalling the OS, than it is to continue diagnosis and attempt to fix the problem.

IMO, Linux is a little better than Windows in this regard, as Linux at least provides more tools and access to internals for diagnostic purposes. My issue with Linux is finding appropriate documentation. Sure, it's great to know that device driver X exposes some internal statistics and controls via the /sys or /proc filesystems, but how do interpret what 0x0FFE might mean when I "cat /sys/net/eth0/flags"?

I am looking to start a BBS that can be accessed both via web and through analog modems with dial up. I've looked and cannot find directions or suggestions on how to do this. Can anyone help me?

People still use dialup modems to get to the internet?

I mean, I have one on my work laptop, and we include one in everything
we build at work.... but it goes to our data center, it makes one call a
day, and it transfers about 4kb worth of data per phone call...

...why does that 4 kb not go another way?

Besides I think he ment dialup BBS, not dial up internet.

the hamradio guys (ax25) do exactly that with citadel.

I think you need to do similar as if you would set up a serial connection terminal, and have that running the citadel commandline client.

Hi,

Fvck Donald Trump. In the back of a Volkswagen.

Just a reminder that Gary Johnson is still out there.

That is all.
