Just to let folks know that the QLink server re-implementation is going 
well.  At present, the following is working:

X.25 packet sequence simulation
Initial disk reset handshake
Read account and code off disk
If match, validate disk with new code and go to welcome text
If not, bring up dialog and ask user for screen name, with erro 
checking.  Add user, hook account code, and validate disk
Show welcome text and await F5 to go to Main Menu
Allow user to select any of the areas on the main menu
For People Connection, allow access to any public or private room, 
ignore, de-ignore users, change rooms, change to another area, quit, 
send or receive email.
For the other areas, show initial menu, and allow change to other areas, 
email, or leave.
When a user gets mail, the "You've got mail" icon shows on their screen.

The server implements the required packet based sliding window protocol 
and handles handshaking.

I'm working on adding online messages (IMs), and the Auditorium room, 
then the file areas (will gateway to FTP/HTTP sites)

If there is interest, I can provide more details on-list or off-list.
