Mike, I am aware of your help to the nos development and it is
now a fact that Tnos and Jnos are working just fine today under DOS. So
it well may be time to stop changing/improving nos for DOS.
I am running Jnos 1.10i, the F6FBB packet BBS and a Fidonet
telephone bbs under Windows for workgroups and this system has not
crashed for weeks! Jnos runs so long it's no longer fun! This Jnos slip
connection tothe internet works fine too. So What? Me Worry?
If 1.10i is the last version of nos for DOS written, it will be fine.
