Hello Steve !
Thanks for the update on other connections to SCOUTER and SCOUTING
other than FidoNet. I guess Fred can use that information too !
I presume these other networks can be accessed from Internet too, IF
the subscriber has mail privileges. Can you detail what methods,
< i.e. detailed examples>, one would use to connect to specific users
on the other systems for the benefit of others on the list.
The standard mode for FidoNet operators in this area is to charge
users for mail privileges. For some $ amount, you get a message
quota, which is decremented by the number of characters contained
in messages sent. I think the SYSOPs figure out an appropriate
charge to cover their phone bills.
Is your SCOUTS.BBS list in sufficient detail that it might be of
assistance to John Pannell, Old North State Council, in connecting
to SCOUTER and SCOUTING in his area ?
