We are pleased to announce the release of Xpress LiNK, a unique
on-line magazine featuring dazzling graphics and an impressive
GUI (Graphical User Interface). The magazine will be offered to
SysOps at no-charge and supported by selected companies
offering support forums for their products. Xpress LiNK focuses
on the on-line community with an assortment of articles
designed to appeal to its readers. For example the premier
issue includes articles covering the Internet, Shareware
reviews, BBS Software, Online services and many other topics.
The magazine will be offered as a door, and currently supports
PCBoard, Wildcat, Searchlight, spitfire, GAP, RBBS and any
other BBS software that writes the CHAIN.TXT, DOOR.SYS
DORINFOx,DEF, CALLINFO.BBS, PCBOARD.SYS, or the GENERIC.SYS
drop file. Xpress Link also supports non-standard IRQs, fossil
drivers, and digiboards.
The magazine requires any communication program that supports
the RIPscrip graphics protocol. Currently all the major
Communication packages either have RIPScrip support or will
incororate it shortly. A partial list of communications
software currently offering RipScrip support follows:
Procomm and RESNOVA (a macintosh based terminal package) are in
the process of being updated to include the RIPscrip standard.
Xpress Link will autodetect the absence of a RIPScrip
compatible terminal and will provide single-key downloading of
the freeware version of RIPTerm.
Xpress Link will premier with the November issue, which will be
released October 20th. If interested, we will upload an issue a
month starting October 20th.
