This is a test message -but in this case I'd appreciate a quick response from the sysops of the systems where this note appears in the intended room (Citanews).

Thanks for that!

Hey, I *like* being old-skool. We are *genuinely* cool and don't need to get on social networks and pretend we're cool.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go tell facebook to get off my lawn.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Since Google Code is steadily deprecating all the download methods from their repositories, I moved the Baby Citadel PHP package to git on bitbucket.org.  

https://bitbucket.org/warbaby67/baby-citadel

Could one of you gentlemen please update http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/installation:source?&#third-partycontributions

Thanks,

Subject: Of Beginnings and a Journey - Happy Thirty Years !!!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Today is a birthday. An Anniversary.

On December 15, 1983 NetK2NE and the Jersey Devil BBS were "born."

Jersey Devil BBS began its life anchored to a (believe it or not) 300 baud single-line dial up modem. The BBS ran on a Commodore 64 machine using the CommLine-64 software which I wrote.

About a year later it had morphed into a Citadel clone-ish thing that I called Citadel-64, which then migrated to the Commodore-128 with (gasp!) a 20 meg hard drive. Yes, there were hard drives available for the '128, and we started calling the software "Citadel-128."

The migration to IBM PC clone hardware was done in 1987, and Citadel:K2NE was born.

Oh, NetK2NE. Yes.

NetK2NE started as a very small software company (K2NE Software) created to market the Commodore 64 BBS software along with a few other items for which we were licensed.

That, of course, grew by the proverbial leaps and bounds once the Public Internet became available in the early 1990s, and the dial-up BBS world rapidly evolved into the various privately-owned internet service providers (ISPs) that you still see today.

Some of those stayed small; some grew. We grew. Not as big as some others. But grew.

And then - in 2001 - I retired from all of that (and from teaching Physics) and moved from New Jersey to California.

NetK2NE. Now thirty years old. Imagine that!!

Who'da thunk that (!!) back in December of 1983 on that snowy night when Jersey Devil BBS "went live"!?!?!

Thanks certainly go out to all that made it possible. From Jim Rose, Rich Kolbush, Bob Davenport, Alan Bowen, Jason Costomiris, Avi Freedman, and Mike Burger to countless others that will undoubtedly be mad when they read this and don't see their names.

Thanks to the "Big Guy Upstairs" Who certainly must have been watching over all this stuff.

Thanks to our customers, clients and friends for their encouragement, and yes - for their business.

And thanks to you, whoever may be reading this, for sharing this tiny bit of history and pride.

Without every one of you, in some way or another, none of it could have happened.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!!

Citadel nostalgia. Gotta love it.

"Nostalgia" is sitting here, thinking about The Old Days, and coming to the conclusion that the only reason BBS writers put a 'Pause after each Screen' option was the advent of the 2400bps dialup modem.

Up to that point you could sit back, watch the text scroll onto your screen at comfortable reading speed (up to 1200 baud) and just enjoy the experience.

Then it got faster. And even faster. And still faster.
And then came ISDN. Not fast enough, so let's do DSL or (shudder!) Internet By Cable TV Company.

Hence the 'Pause after each Screen' option.

The old days were better.

You could just connect via slip and minimodem to another computer within earshot of your own and limit the speed and then connect with the text client if you wanted the real feel.

Vince - I could read at 2400 baud.. It's when I went faster that I needed that handy pause button.

Lots of people - especially those in the "computer world" - can read at 2400 baud.

Personally, the "pause after each screen" was the option that I favored - even at the slower baudrates. That allowed you to re-read something that really interested you and that you perhaps were going to justify with a response or a comment. It was for that "let me make sure I really got that!" moment.

How do you not reply to this?

I was there, and I still got my Commodore 64.

Great job guys, I wasn't part of Citadel back then, didn't even discover Citadel until I moved to the US in the late 90s, but a small group of us back in Germany we had our own little thing going, and it sure was exciting.

I think we have been living at the best time.

I sure am glad I didn't miss all that, would wanna be a teenager now, thats for sure.

Just here to let every body know that I just uploaded citadelsync version 1 to bitbucket.

can you have a few more words what the intended audience is? its written in the go programming language, right?

do you intend to make it a general purpose client library?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I updated the docs on the website.

Yes it is written in Go.

No this is an application not a lib. but it uses a lib, to access Citadel.

That lib. is also available opensource MIT License here:

https://bitbucket.org/gotamer/citadel

 

 

 


Imports vCards in to the Citadel Mail Server


Features

  • Citadel Sync will work on most operating systems including Linux, Mac, PC, Android ...
  • Converts a multi vCard file in to many for each to hold a single contact
  • Adds UID and REV fields to the vCard if missing
  • Uploads vCards to a given remote Citadel Mail Server
  • You can specify, which folder on the server to upload to
  • Can populate the Display name field from first and last name, or populate first and last name from display name

Features planned

  • Compare revision state and sync in case you modify a vCard on the server. This is not supported in version 1, vCards on the server will be over written by the local once.
  • Create an executable for Android etc.
  • Create a single vCard to hold all contacts, so it can be used as an address book in Thunderbird etc.

Features not supported

  • Does not support non standard vCard fields like (If you must have one or two of those let me know)
    • X-EVOLUTION-RADIO
    • X-KADDRESSBOOK-X-AssistantsName

Hints:

  • Backup your vCards before you start using citadelsync, both local and server
  • Backup your config file before you upgrade to a new version of citadelsync

Command Line Flags:

A config file is required, set it with the -c flag.

If the specified config file does not exist, one will be created with default values.

-D will delete all items on the remote server, in the given room WITHOUT WARNING

Username and Password for the Citadel Mail Server may be defined in the config file, or optionally on the command line

The -r Flag checks if the room exists on the mail server. You can use this to verify that you have spelled the room name correctly

-v=false: version -h=false: Prints out this help text -c="citadelVcard.json": Config file (*.json) -u="": Username -p="": Password -r=false: Check if the citadel room even exists -D=false: Delete all items in the room! -i="": Import file (*.vcf) 

The Environment flags in the config file are:

0 = Production 1 = Prints a lot of info 2 = Debug mode, same as 1 but will exit on error 

Install

Executable

There is an executable version for Linux AMD64 at:https://bitbucket.org/gotamer/citadel/downloads/citadelsync
