    Hello All,

    I've started working on my doors again, specifically converting them to use MannDoor for the doorkit. It's not really a difficult thing to do. I do have to set up a Linux VM to compile the Linux doors on correctly. There's also some modifications I have to make to MannDoor to get it to compile correctly to
    Linux as FreePascal has taken its former "Linux" unit and split that unit into four separate units.

    All a matter of time.

    Good to hear! Please let us know how it goes, and when the "new"
    doors are ready to try. Thanks, appreciate the effort!

    I am working on moving my BBS from a standard desktop to a HPE ProLiant server and once I do that, I'll have a much more powerful computer and I can spread out the BBS over four hard drives bringing the total storage from 1TB to 4TB.

    The main thing I am working on right now is getting MannDoor to work with my existing code. I am eliminating duplicate functions and convering my door unit
    to work with MannDoor. I'm also upgrading MannDoor and will be sending my improvements to Rick (Parrish, a.k.a. manning, the author of MannDoor).

    Still trying to remember who ported my doors to C recently. I just cannot remember their name.
