I'm mostly around here, forums, websites...
The thing with Arcade, however, is it is a MASSIVE repository for older
files. Partly a victim of its own success with the FTP gateway, I can
pull files without even logging in - something that I simply couldn't do
when logged on (for how many straight telnet clients support Zmodem?).
What I think Arcade needs now, however, is a way to push files into the
filebase from the Internet side (is Ricky Sarge still around?), and in
that way we could contribute from time to time (again, how many telnet
clients can do Zmodem?).
Trust me, dial-up is *no* good. The call to a British landline may be
free, but my modem's chirpy-squeaky ain't gonna pass VoIP. If it could,
I'd have had Minitel running before now...
