I'm not sure how far afield Classic Computers goes, but I am interested 
in anyone here who used, worked on, or knew about the QuantumLink 
service for the Commodore 64/128 machines. 

With help from someone who's spent lots of time deciphering the QLink 
protocol, I am busy re-implementing the server.  So far, the stock QLink 
disk will login and show the main page, you can select any of the 7 
"message" areas and the screen will show menus for each area, and I am 
now working on implementing the "People Connection" chat system. 

By no means I have made even a dent in all of the functionality of the 
system (games, file downloads, etc.), but it is impressive to see the 
old disks and serviuce running again.  Currently, I have the basic chat 
(join, leave, say) working for multiple users.

Sadly, I never used the original system, so I am lost as to how exactly 
things progressed from screen to screen (where did you change you screen 
name, for example), so I'm eager to hear from others.
