• Feature Request: Moving ECHOCFG to SCFG

    From The Millionaire@VERT to Digital Man on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 14:06:23
    How about moving ECHOCFG to SCFG? That way all configs are in one place instead of having them separate.

    How about moving ECHOCFG to SCFG? That way all configs are in one place instead of having them separate.

    Perhaps. I don't see that as a major improvement or need, but I understand why it could be considered "better" by some people.

    I might be remembering wrong, but I think this question had come up before. I thought the reason for having them separate was that some sysops might choose not to add any FTN networks, so it might not make sense to have a lot of that FTN configuration in SCFG. But then again, SCFG already has "FIdoNet EchoMail and NetMail" under Networks.. What about moving that from SCFG into Echocfg? :P

    That wasn't a serious request; I'm happy with where things are at in SCFG and echocfg currently.

    Anything's possible. But EchoCfg is completely optional - it just modifies sbbsecho.ini. You could do that by hand. You don't strictly *need* EchoCfg.

    SCFG on the other hand is not optional, as it modifies binary configuration (.cnf) files which you can't practically do by hand. SCFG also creates/updates database files and just generally does a lot more than echocfg does.

    Most BBSes DM have their ECHOCFG in their CFG file. Lots of examples: RA, Ezycom, Mystic, Renegade, etc.

    EchoCfg is a FidoNet (FTN) EchoMail and Mailer configuration program for Synchronet's SBBSecho. Most of your cited example BBS programs don't even include an FTN EchoMail or Mailer.

    Well you still would need ECHOCFG for an external mailer but now that Synchronet has an internal mailer, no external mailer is needed.

    You don't technically "need" echocfg at all, but if you're going to use SBBSecho as your echomail program, then it's a nice thing to have/use. There used to be a lot more options for FTN echomail programs to be used with Synchronet/SMB (in which case, echocfg would not be relevant), but those other options have all pretty much dried up. Still, it's conceivable that someone could use a different EchoMail program than SBBSecho and a different mailer than BinkIt, in which case, they would have no use for echocfg or sbbsecho/sbbsecho.ini.

    Why not add a modopts.ini option to "include echocfg link in scfg" or
    something so it'll run echocfg from scfg and vice versa. At least you
    wouldn't have to exist the program. It'd be like just another option.

    I don't think Fmail supports SMB. I think the last tosser to support SMB that wasn't mine (SBBSFIDO or SBBSecho) was InterMail. I could be wrong. <shrug>

    but now that Synchronet has an internal mailer, no external
    mailer is needed.

    Assuming the sysop wants to use the internal mailer. Not all SBBS

    So, let's summarize: You like the option more (that I suggested) to forget/ignore the "issue" and move on with no action. Even though *YOU* started the whole thread by creating the "issue". You have now changed your mind and *DON'T* think it would be a good idea to move ECHOCFG to SCFG.

    Is that about right?

    You are one strange person.

    So, let's summarize: You like the option more (that I suggested) to forget/ignore the "issue" and move on with no action. Even though *YOU* started the whole thread by creating the "issue". You have now changed your mind and *DON'T* think it would be a good idea to move ECHOCFG to SCFG.

    Is that about right?

    You are one strange person.

    You are one strange person too. Downvoting every message I write. Asking me to go on your bbs is the last thing I'd ever do. I treated you pretty decently on my Fido echo area titled "Mobile". You still treat me like crap on FSX and DOVE-NET. Which I don't think is very much fair to me. :-(

    You are one strange person.

    You are one strange person too. Downvoting every message I write.

    You didn't answer the question I asked you above. Why not?

    I've told you in the past why I downvote (most) of your messages. I'll continue to do so as long as you continue to do what you do in regards
    to up-voting.

    Asking me to go on your bbs is the last thing I'd ever do.

    I don't recall asking you to "go on my BBS".

    I treated you pretty decently on my Fido echo area titled "Mobile".

    I don't recall that either, and it doesn't even really make sense.

    You still treat me like crap on FSX and DOVE-NET. Which I don't
    think is very much fair to me. :-(

    I don't "treat you like crap". I ask you questions sometimes about your statements/questions, and you almost always don't bother answering. If
    you do respond it's about something else, completely un-related and irrelevant. I'll keep trying, though.

    Ummm, no, I wasn't. I was responding to your statement "He's competing
    with Twitter? Unbelieveable." I said not one single word about any
    "Trump app". Your reading comprehension sucks. Go read the post again
    if you need to refresh your memory.

    You even told me that you carried the ftn echo area on your bbs.

    I do carry that FidoNet echo on my BBS, but not sure what that has to do
    with anything.

    Another VERY strange (and inaccurate) post by you.

    have a lot of that FTN configuration in SCFG. But then again, SCFG already has "FIdoNet EchoMail and NetMail" under Networks.. What about moving that from SCFG into Echocfg? :P

    That wasn't a serious request; I'm happy with where things are at in SCFG and echocfg currently.


    it's always seemed weird that there is an echocfg separate from scfg.
    i know it has many more options added to it now, but i think it should all go under one roof.

    is actually running SCFG or EchoCfg at all; I think he's just trying to make conversation. <shrug>

    He seems to leave that sort of mess all over the place.


    there was actually a guy like that years ago who didn't run synchronet
    and did conversation starters and why don't you's. his name was finnigan.
    he was a long haul truck driver so he couldnt really run a bbs. i think he had it up a few times for like 1 day.

    he was just lonely and was acting like he was a sysop i guess.
