I finally got off my arse this morning, fired up the RiscPC and reconfigured its IP address.
End result, Haven (my old Viewdata BBs) is back and available via a Java client again. Taste that 40-column retro Viewdata goodness here, but don’t expect any updates – the Sysop’s Bulletin still thinks I work for Mailbox, and that was at least 4 years ago.
Those of you who are really retro can probably telnet to haven.jml.net:23 with a Viewdata emulator such as Hippoterm. The truly retro will have to wait until I’ve got it hooked up to a phone line, but that’s probably best saved for the BBC Micro madness 🙂
[ Those of you who don’t know what the hell I’m on about (usually because you whippersnappers are too young, this was during the 80s dammit) can find more about Viewdata on CCl4’s site – be enlightened at the marvels of escape codes, attributes, and giant telephone bills ]
