Had some small issues with Ambroshia today, was stuck in a maintenance loop. Seems it is working now, no data has been lost. Enjoy.
Added some small utility doors to the BBS. IP Address GeoIP lookup, random dad jokes, and famous quotes.
I got a post on Archaic Binary BBS about how to write a BBS door.
Well I am fairly new to this still, and have only written two small 32bit BBS doors that I use on my own system.
Firstly I used a copy of Rick Parrish’s RMLib to write them, it’s not a very complete SDK or anything but it does give the basic IO functions we need for communication over the socket connection.
Then you need a IDE for C#. I suppose one of the best is Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2012 C# Express. It’s free and the project files worked for me.
If you can write in C# then you should be fine.
