Years ago when I was looking to put backup up a PC BBS the top two contenders for me were Mystic and Synchronet, ultimately I went with Mystic as you can customize so much on it. But as the years have gone by I recently revisited Synchronet to see what was new if anything. Sure enough there are a few new features, features that for me are game changing. Synchronet now supports PETSCII terminal emulation and does a really good job of it! I also found that some of the doors (DOS) games I had to work at to get to run on Mystic actually work with a less fuss on Synchronet and quiet possibly some of the ones that would not work on Mystic look like they will work on Synchronet.
These are just a couple of the many new finding I am discovering on Synchronet's latest build 3.18 which to me feels like Rob has really done some work from the last time I looked at this software which was only version 3.16.
Where am I going with all this? A new BBS? A change to the current BBS? For that you will have to wait and see, but lets just say Synchronet v3.18 will allow me to offer in 1 BBS the features of at least 2 maybe 3 other BBS programs combined into one!
So if you are BBS curious or looking to put one up, as much as I love Mystic you just might want to watch Robs video to see the features of his latest work at http://synchro.net
