    jejeje!

    Mystic is alright, but I don't know why they are ahead on this. The real poll is how many people run the software.

    Twice as many people run Synchronet, and it has way more features. I think maybe the default menus on Mystic are prettier and certain things are a little easier to setup, but Synchronet is way more powerful.

    I'm not going to go flame the Mystic people, but I don't get it :) ---------------------------------------------------------

    i dont know why people run mystic. i guess they are told there's no other option and the author says it is a spiritual sucessor to rg and telegard. i loved rg and telegard and i don't find it as such.

    i think people should check out elebbs or just run an older dos bbs software, but if they like running it, that's good.

    I never ran Telegard but as far as Renegade I don't think it's the "spiritual successor" to rg either.

    There are "bridge" programs out there that will give you telnet and stuff to the DOS BBS software. There are people who do it and there are times I think it's tempting, but you'd still lose a ton of stuff compared to Synchronet.

    I don't think Mystic is bad at all and if they like it good for them, I just don't see how even if you ran it why you would think it's "the best". I can drive a Chevy and like it just fine without claiming it's "the best car".

    i dont even know what you mean. i just see a link to sean's facebook group

    everyone knows i ran the best and biggest bbs group on facebook.

    everyone should move to telegram anyways.

    I like Telegram. I was one of the earliest to list an echo as available on it (ASIAN_LINK).

    Synchronet "Real Fact" #26:
    The Synchronet Web Server was written predominantly by Stephen Hurd (Deuce) Norco, CA WX: 62.2°F, 70.0% humidity, 0 mph SE wind, 0.00 inches rain/24hrs


    Well, I go for Synchronet of course but Mystic has some interesting aspects. It has only 1 unfortunate aspect and I *think* it's a documentation flaw vice a real one. I has a disturbing trend of marking netmail as 'Crash/Direct' then routing it through uplink (even othernet stuff where I don't have that network).

    I recall sending routing file examples to a few of them which often fixed it but next time, they'd forget and route it again (grin). If I can, I send it along 'crash' for them.

    True. What 'rocks' for me is the flexible text editing. SOOOO much easier for me.
