The traditional QWK/REP method started to become laborious and pressure
mounted when I was anxious to get the next packet *before* I was finished
reading and replying in the previous one.

But then...  I discovered SemPoint (Windows).  It could consolidate all  
the QWK packet messages into an accumulating database.

And.. it supported Jam, Squish, PKT, and a few other formats,  
concurrently.  It needed an external tosser/scanner though.

And now, all-inclusive point software such OpenXP are quite fine   alternatives.

I wish I could get SemPoint working again.  I seem to remember having
absolutley no trouble setting it up the first time many years ago. But  
now, it's complaining "unable to save message in Area"  :(
