• Looking for RIPterm...

    From Bradley D. Thornton@1:103/705 to All on Sat Aug 31 20:46:48 2019
    With the talk in recent threads here about Syncterm, etc., I figured I'd ask if
    anyone knows where I can grab a copy of RipTerm in a file area somehwere.

    I've looked around on a couple of BBSes, and can't find any nearline archives of any copies of my own (and I'm a zillion miles from where I actually have it on tape/diskette).

    I've managed to find only a single instance of Searchlight BBS (The Trashcan - bbs.thenet.gen.nz:2324), and would really enjoy surfing that BBS with RIP graphics and a mouse :)

    It was really refreshing to find an extant instance of Searchlight after all these years, and the user interface is so nice, even on the cli. It lacked some
    of the more popular but sometimes esoteric features of the more prominent BBS software systems back then, but it was stable and it was easy to integrate most
    functionality with 3rd party software.

    It was actually just coming into its own, and really gaining in popularity right around the time that (I can't remember if it was TBBS or RBBS or what) one of the more prominent systems heralded in the signs of the deathknells with
    a product called WorldGroup, IIRC.

    Anyway, RIP never got a chance to take a foothold, although it was supported by
    Mustang Software and other major BBSes (no pun intended), although Searchlight was almost singularly unique in that it supported native RIP, even on the sysops console and you could design in a quasi wysiwyg environment.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any feedback :)

    You can get RIPtel (the official RIP telnet client for Windows) here: http://blackflag.acid.org/

    ftp://bbs.docksud.com.ar/main/CLIENTES/RIPTM154.EXE

    Thanks Fernando,

    precisely what I was looking for. I'm having problems getting tht ftp server to
    come up right now, but I'll check back later, because I'll want that for posterity.

    I the meantime, the win client that Rob alerted me to over at acid is going to do quite nicely :)
