    From Sean Dennis@1:18/200 to All on Saturday, July 10, 2021 14:03:16
    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for people who would be willing to test my doors on their
    system. This would include not only setting up the doors but proofreading
    the door's documentation to make sure I didn't leave anything out and that
    the documentation is understandable.

    I'd need people that run a BBS that support a FOSSIL driver with these OSes: DOS, 32- and 64-bit Windows[1], OS/2 (Warp 4 and higher) and its children,
    and 64-bit Linux.

    It wouldn't be anything long and drawn out; maybe an hour or so per door you want to use.

    -- Sean

    1 = I would be creating 32-bit Windows doors immediately. I have to
    remember how to do the 64-bit cross-compiling with Free Pascal under
    Windows.

    ... I don't make mistakes. I date them.

    Happy to do Linux testing under BBBS

    Yes, it is working fine, I called in remotely and it worked fine. Still trying to do the ascii/ansi for the door32.sys but will get there one day :)

    Great! That means that the base code is working. Now I need to port my own code over as that Mastermind door was the example door for the MannDoor doorkit. I'd like to work on that by adding instructions that can be viewed online.

    I will try and finish the bz script this month and then let you have it for others to share.

    Hello, Daniel!

    Replying to a message of Daniel Path to Sean Dennis:

    i can help you with os/2 testing next week :)

    But of course. <G> Thanks. I was looking through my filebase and found a program that will convert RTF to IPF so I can create real OS/2 help files. <G>
    Did you know I wrote an IPF for installing LORD/2 4.08 under OS/2?

    Later,
    Sean

    Okay, thanks! I am working on moving the BBS from its current home in a Dell desktop to a HPE server but after that, I'll work on porting my code to Manndoor and let you guys know from there.
