March 6, 2001. Sometime between March 1 to March 5, 2001 Tripod deleted my account/web site. As per their useage agreement that I signed to get their free space, they are not required to notify me that they don't like what I am doing, or give advance notification (or notification of any kind) about my removal from their site. So I was quite taken by surprise when I tried logging in one day and no longer had a web site.
The last stats Tripod gave me were 9,000+ visitors per month. Since my site is so popular, I have decided to keep it going, in spite of this major setback. I continue to work on modifying the web site for relocation to FreeServers.com. Modifcations to this web site include removal of all web pages no longer needed, including QWK networks that have ceased to function or have merged into larger networks, the radio show which ended in 1998, the Tripod search engine, Guest Book, ...
The music site I helped with decided go with CommandLine.net to host their new ChromeOxide.com. I wish them the best of luck.
October 22, 1999. The Earthquake City BBS web site hit the big time! And I didn't even know it.
Tripod stats showed that this web site had more than 4,000 unique visitors last month (September 1999). Because of that, Tripod has increased my web space from 11mb to 50mb.
And now a brief comment about the search engine available on this site.
PicoSearch indexes this site whenever I request it (normally about once per
month). Therefore you won't be able to find the newest additions to this site
using it. However, it displays the results much nicer. Not only does it show
you what page it found the item on, it also displays the surrounding context.
And, you can click on the link to get there.
January 25, 1999. I am in the process of adding more ListServs to this BBS. If you are a subscriber to this BBS, you can have your very own ListServ.
September 19, 1998. I added a web site map link to the top of each of the pages for Earthquake City BBS.
September 6, 1998. To add a bit more consistency between pages, I have added a What's New to this page so that changes to this page can be highlighted.
A ListServ was NOT one of the typical features of a BBS. However, since we currently have internet access via a UUCP account, I thought a ListServ would be a nice way for people to keep up to date with the happenings of the BBS and myself and the users of the BBS.
Subscribers to Earthquake City BBS can have their own ListServ.
To find out how the mailing list works, send mail to:
* Overview of ListServ Commands * There are two ways to work with the ListServ here at Earthquake City BBS If you send a message to: 1) listserv then you need to send the command *MUST* be in the subject line *AND* in the body of the message (and the command *MUST* include which list you are interested in). or If you send a message to a specific "mail list": 2) BBS then you *ONLY* need to send the command in the subject line of the message (*NOT* in the body of the message) (and you don't need to specify the mail list" with the command). In either case, here is an overview of the commands that can be used when sending e-mail to the ListServ or the individual ""mail list". These commands are not case sensitive. If you don't use one of these commands, you will receive this help message. "mail-list" = BBS, Boardwalkers, Insect_Surfers, Labrador, ...
