    Total abandonware... I mooched every registered SL file from slbbs.com a long time ago.

    Didn't Telegrafix buy the SL source code along with ProBoard's source code? I know PB is now open source ... should ask about SL.

    Pat Clawson bought both TeleGrafix/RIP and then (later) SearchLight/Spinaker. And yeah, looks like ProBoard too:

    I thought someone at one time tried to get that code from Telegrafix and they wanted an obscene amount of money for it.

    I think that was several years ago now, so maybe the tune has changed, but understanding was that they thought RIP had value to the mobile market (The may not have been wrong if they'd actually decided to, you know, DO anythi with it) and hence wanted mega bucks for anything related (searchlight, ripterm/tel, et al).

    The mobile market? You mean pre-smartphone era stuff like WAP browsing? Yeah RIP could've possibly had something there. I was thinking more of the Spinnaker web server that had direct integration with Searchlight. Spinnaker was buggy as hell but if it was fixed up and *really* worked on seriously it had the potential for something interesting. It was purely database-driven and in a weird way seemed like the precursor to CMS-websites like Wordpress.

    Proboard was the first BBS software I ever ran, since all the popular BBSes in my area also ran it.

    I guess it was really popular in Europe, and a small section of Wisconsin. :)

    I wondered what happened to it. A former local Sysop (also
    a fellow ham radio operator) noted "I thought RIP was what
    you did to a f@r+" <G>. I have a bunch of the Outworld Arts
    ANSI and RIP graphics files over here.

    LOL!

    When there's an opening like this, I can't resist. <G>

    But, I've been at the other end of that...asking for it. Before
    my wife died 13 1/2 years ago, I said to her that "My head is so
    far up my butt, that I can see my throat!!". Without missing a
    beat...grinning wryly...she said "That's why your eyes are brown!!".
    <ZING!!>.
