    I'm integrating more of this with QBBS. the JSON stuff in Synchronet seems to have lots of whitespace. Is that necessary, or can I just fire out JSON strings the way Ruby JSON generates them?>

    Any whitespace that you see *outside of double quotes* is just there to make the JSON more human readable. You can safely omit it.

    Your JSON serializer may give you some prettification options though, if you should want to produce more human readable output.

    Yes. The old format is for "sbl" compatibility which likely I'll be dropping at some point too.

    Cool. I'll drop it. I like JSON much better. (:


    Yes, I can't think of a reason why not. :-) Your system won't appear at sbbslist.html however, if that's what you're asking.

    Bummer. ): It does appear at the moment, but it says "non-synchronet".

    That's because you have your BBS entry's "software" value set to "Synchronet".

    I just would like to get the avatar thing fully working. I'm not sure why the ones I'm sending to Dove Data aren't getting picked up.

    I'll take a look at the syncdata messages and my logs and see what I see.

    Is DM Sicilian?

    From the name of his BBS (and his last name), I would have thought DM is of German lineage. :P

    More English than German, but yeah, a bit of both and some French. Basically a northern European mutt. :-)

    It was a "Princess Bride" reference, I thought the "land war in Asia" line
    was a reference.

    I was on the Apache web server mailing list a long time ago. We did the
    usual trading of TPB references, and the listmaster allowed it to continue, saying while it was off-topic, a Pricess Bride reference was a sign of good character.

    His email address? rous@apache.org.

    "As you wish." was a favorite line I'd tell my boss when I was like 19. It made her happy. =)
