Yeah Sorry Jakth. Maybe we can get the mod to split the topic for us.
Now I don't remember the 20/60 loops but I have run 300 baud before (ARGH!) and I remember "Daisy Chain" LAN's too (another Arrgh!).
LOL! Love the coffee stirrers. A tech's gotta use what a tech's gotta use
(I can't even begin to tell you all the odd "tools" I've found laying around the house). And once armed with VOM and a can of Tuner Cleaner there aint nothing you can't conqure! LOL!
I had a fellow sysop who was having problems with his system locking up on him while he was at work, so I took an old telephone answering machine, hooked a small relay into the tape servro and soldered on a length of wire and a 2 pin connection to the relay and plugged it into the reset socket on his motherboard
Since his BBS answered on the third ring and the anwering machine answered on the 4th anytime the BBS locked up you could just let it ring until you heard a "BEEP" and you knew it had just hit the re-set button
It worked so well I made 2 more, one for myself and one for another sysop.
