    because their door games are unique and second to none. Anyone
    interested in helping out?

    Would love to participate... especially on reverse engineering their doors. I have been aquiring many door companies in the late 90's... so I have tons of doors -- however, I have the built tools to help me capture all ANSI streams. It would just require putting some heads together to guess the algorithms... and viola a new flavor of chocolate is born ;-)

    What was interesting about TBBS was that it could run Dbase-III applications as doors. It made that software extremely appealing for businesses.

    TBBS? I didn't know that. Throw a digiboard with 16 modems on a box and run that, and you've got and intranet before there was an internet.

    I ran an application back in 1991 called Excellenet. It connected a retailer's DOS-based point-of-sale systems together. After the store closed, they'd finalize their sales figures and close the register. At a set time, the store could call out over its modem to the Excellenet system and request a new copy of the price lookup file, then upload their sales figures to Excellenet. The file names were hex coded representations of the store numbers, to be unique.

    Sound familiar? I kept seeing commercial applications for FTN wherever I looked.

    That is great to know - as I acquired Halcyon (Delphi dBase III+ Engine). Which
    has a SHELL component to run dBase FORMs etc as if my APP was the dBase.exe - did not think about it, but, I could merge SHELL into my CodeRunner server and viola same feature. (Halcyon is already merged into CodeRunner).

    * CodeRunner is my node.js type of engine - accepts connections and runs scripts - but provides a wide RTL like M$'s .net CLR framework.
