Always looking for a good web based telnet client that handles ANSI BBS well. I'm willing to install it here locally if anyone has any suggestions.

And as for the doors, yes, some of those are coming out of rotation since they're not played. I plan to stick with a small amount of popular doors, but want to see what is enjoyed by the greatest number of people. Seems to be space empire type games and RPGs at this point! :)

Flashterm looks to be the winner. But, as I stated, It has to be installed on your end because it takes a command line PHP command to get it load properly on the users end.

Consider using JTA - the Trashcan is. No flicker, and it's stable enough.

http://javassh.org

You can configure it to autoconnect upon load, though he does not.

How about writing me an apple.conf for it using costakis.org as the telnet address.

I am making some kind of mistake.

Just consider the html is in the same folder as the jar is.

You can post it in here.

Check out http://www.costakis.org - doesn't look too bad, IMHO! Seems to function well, even though it apparently doesn't respond correctly to SLBBS's ANSI check at login.

Good, that's the one I hoped for. I'll add it to the site with a small rewrite on the page where they know it's yours and be able to get back to the slbbs.com site.

Do you have a decent piece of graphics you would like to use?

Unfortunately I don't. I'm not too skilled on the graphics side of things. I'll see if I can't have one of my less-graphically challenged friends at work whip something up.

Thanks!
Chris
