Demo BBS - File Libraries

Post by Duckula »

I have managed to locate and transfer the file libraries from the original Galacticomm Demo System (circa 1998) to the official BBS (bbs.themajorbbs.com - telnet) which is great from a historic point of view. I will be gradually going through the libraries to update the file path so they point to the correct location.

If you attempt to download a file and receive a message saying the file can not be located, it means I am yet to update that library. Please wait a day or so and try again.

As a side note, while trying to read some interesting DOC in the File Libraries (CTRL-V on a TXT file), I got disconnected abruptly (maybe a file pointer to NULL? )
The telnet daemon was down for couple seconds, then it resumed.
When I logged back in, every MajorMUD players were re-login in, apparently doing the same as I did, so ugh, I guess I inadvertently stepped on a bug that crashed the BBS.

I won't CTRL-V on a text file anymore, I promise :D

Yes, there is a bug but the good news is a fix is being tested :)

The file libraries have all been re-mapped and downloads should be available.

The file viewing bug is still being resolved.
