Just took a look at monochrome.

Ironically, it uses quite a bit of xterm color. Heh.

Still, it looks like a nice system. Very different feel from Citadel, which isn't bad, just different. Reminds me a tad of the old-style BBSes, with their menu-based system of navigation.

(I see a future where this entire conversation Citadrifts into another room).

I always liked pine better than mutt.  Seems more intuitive to me.

I kinda like elm, myself. Powerful features, and still fairly easy to use.

I could see it drifting into Save The Text Client, possibly. Or maybe Ancient Computing, although that doesn't quite seem right (not very hardware oriented).

Save the text client seems about right. There is a new room "software" too. ;)

I still use alpine for my sdf.org e-mail. I started with Pine when I got my first e-mail address in 1994 or so; it's nice not having to relearn much of anything.

+1 for pine and  sdf.org

I mainly use webmail everywhere else at the moment. I have only been online (and owning/knowing howto switch on a computer)  since 2007 i think. And it took a couple of years to realize i could ditch the overweight monster email clients that come with most operating systems. Using a text client like pine was a revelation! B)

I recently started to reread a bit of the book i first bought to get my bearings with the internet, which was: Ed Krols 1992 "Whole internet users guide and catalog" . He statrs off with the unix "mail" client program (before going onto Pine/a mime client), but referenced another mail system before moving on "if you wanna learn more about email etc...": nameky the mh mail system.

Anyone use the MH system in any variation?

<pinches _arm&looks_around@new_surroundings>  Wow!

 

Just noticed that this had drifted over from "Hardware".

 

I am playing about with a clone of a popular BBS in the UK* ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monochrome_BBS ) - named Mconv (or mbbs which is the stand alone bbs system).

And i would love to be able to access citadel via a menu based system like this. Is the possibility of having another text client connect to citserver a good idea?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*(If anyone wants to see the actual monochome bbs in action they can ssh to: mono@mono.org )

I'm ambivalent about it. I've been using the current text client since the 80s, and am very comfortable with it.

But, for those people who would prefer a menu system, it might be nice.

I imagine it might not be useful to any seasoned citadel users, but its something i would find handy.

The text client is very good and i can navigate pretty well with it;  i have been using a bbs with a menu system for a while now and have grown to like it.

mono.org must not be taking new users.

I have just logged into mono  ( ssh mono@mono.org ),  as a guest.  And to create a new account pressed "g" in the main menu (after pressing "c" a few times to accept user policy and 'continue') i have created a new account and am awaiting my password via email.   How did you go about creating a new account?  If there is a problem i will let them know so someone can fix it.

I can see that the account is created (as I cannot log in as 'fleeb')... I just never got the e-mail confirming that I've joined (and I don't recall if I entered a password or am waiting on one from them).

just left a message with the head admin (who is online atm). He should sort it out. I honestly can't remember how long the account process takes, so it might just be a matter of waiting a bit.

If you send a 'chase mail' to monoadm@mono.org, they should sort it out. maybe your message was missed or mis-tagged as spam ?
