• Question about Cheepware

    From Alejandro Filimonchuk@4:900/102 to All on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 10:52:18
    Hi, guys!

    I just wanna know (please, explain me as I were an eight years boy... not,
    not that much! A nine years old boy :P) what Cheepware is all about...

    What kind of BBS doors are part of "Cheepware" developed by Sean Dennis.
    Im very interested in BBS history, so its a question I really need to ask.
    And utilities? What kind of utilities are you developing or tweaking?

    Thank you very much! I hope we can make FidoNet great again! (no political statement intended ;) just a funny phrase)

    Hello Alejandro,

    Cheepware is a line of freeware BBS doors and sysop utilities that I have been developing since 1998. My BBS doors are DOS-based and written in Turbo Pqascal
    7. My utilities are written using Turbo Pascal 7, Virtual Pascal for OS/2 and Win32, and Free Pascal for Win64 and Linux (though I don't do much for those these days). I also have released a single 32-bit DOS utility that I use a special patch for Virtual Pascal to create.

    I am quietly working on Cheepware. I am rewriting a lot of the code I use to create doors to be more efficient. I have a few more BBS doors in progress. I
    am a bit slow these days as I am now medically retired and dealing with several
    chronic health issues that drain my energy often.

    If you're interested in Cheepware, just ask. :)

    Thank you very much! I hope we can make FidoNet great again! (no political statement intended ;) just a funny phrase)

    Fidonet can use all the help it can get. :)

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Well, of course Im interested in Cheepware, but maybe not for using it right now (I have a Mystic BBS, have to tell you...) but maybe I could visit some
    BBS with cheepware software in it and do a review (I usually do textart and
    BBS reviews in my youtube channel... if you are interested, this is the
    latest vid: https://youtu.be/RlvuwPFDpgs (with english subtitles! so you
    can watch even if I spoke in spanish :)

    So please point me where I can enjoy some of your works. I will be glad, because I love all things BBS related.

    Have a nice day!
