    Updated my Ubuntu Linux Synchronet utilities. Now the backup tool as a optional offsite-backup feature that will copy your latest backup to a remote server using rsync over ssh. If you have more questions just ask! You can get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/synchronet-bbs-utilities/

    i want you to see how ridiculious it looks when your urls below your posts take up 90% of the msg

    try putting everything under one umbrella
    maybe do one url with some slight descriptions of your services that leads to an information portal with urls

    Neither was I, just pointing out that there already is a url that lists all
    the other url's
