Hi, I have been working with computers for many years and still remember the days of the ZX Spectrum and the times when hard drives were so small you had to delete old programs to install new ones, how times have changed. I have been enjoying a huge learning curve while trying to help others on the WindowsBBS site, my nickname on there is Markmadras. I hope I will be able to help many other people on this site also. How long (or is it permanent) do you have to keep using the Image Verification when making posts. It's a minor irritation but I would rather use a site without this. I see most people are using links to there dump files, what do I need to download to be able to read them, on windowsBBS dump files are decoded by the user and then posted in full. Mark.
