Phase 1 of bringing the BBS home is complete, one Windows XP machine hiding under the table. NEO14-S the Ubuntu server now is a smtp relay for the BBS's outbound email.
Now I just need to install #Wildcat! copy over what I can, and voilà.
Creepy #Google decided to halt the BBS server without a shutdown (Thanks Obama) so I've had to waste 20 minutes fixing corrupted files in Wildcat!. Thank god I backup everything in the WC5 directory, including binaries.
I really need to find a desktop PC here at home that I can run Wildcat on, this whim of the provider shit is annoying.
So bad news was that, yes, because I forgot to write down my non standard password for the server I had to reinstall.
Good news is, I reinstalled gopher from my back-up and installed #NextCloud to use with my phone to sync contacts and such via VPN. Also Ubunutu did need an update to be fair.
@tek rather embarassing prior to Just Eat coming along "Hi it's Kévin from XYZ, but that doesn't matter, can I order some food please".
@tek I've worked in call centres for a while now, it takes a few minutes for the "actually, this is my phone and I ain't being recorded" to kick in. Annoying force of habit, but their spiel is laughable all the same.
