Well, I never wrote any PEX, only EXE's. The EXE's I wrote
should, AFAIK, all be Y2K compatible because I foresaw this
problem since about 1992 when I first started writing programs.
The only trouble is my EXE's were written in Pascal and Pascal
programs have a bug on fast machines (division by zero) and my
more recent EXE's have a built-in protection preventing people
from altering the code. Therefore it is impossible to run a
patch on my programs...
THNX for sending this to me anyway,

Hmmm... I don't even know if I have access to that mail account
anymore. My current email address is email@example.com, and
it should stay like that for some time since it's a cable
connection and I'm not about to go back to a modem...
> Suppose this will be your new homepage?
Well, the one at wanadoo is the most recent one, but as soon as I
have my Linux machine back (it's on loan to the company I work for at the
moment) I'll probably host something myself.

That's the correct address, and you can send mail there if it's
within reasonable limits.

I've read your reports in the Fido echoes, and I also got some
reports from a Belgian sysop. But I haven't had the time to check
anything myself yet. Today I had my first BBS user in 2000, it's been

All the programs I ever wrote for PB included the source code in
separate packages. If you don't have them (and PB-Lib, which is
even more useful to PEX programmers), I can upload them to some
server of your choice (they are just too big to email).

Subject: Hi Frank :-)
Hi there ...
I was looking today for the fidonet mail area's when i stumbled
in to your pages. It hit me by surprise to see that there actually
is a new beta released of proboard. I'm not interrested since i
don't feel like paying for a bugfix, if it where a new release
with lots of functions okay, but now ....
But that's not the reason of this mail ..
I read your buglist of proboard pexes and saw that Prostat was
mentioned (2.10 as rubbish and 2.40 as minor bugged version).
So i said to myself, what the heck get out the ghost image try
to install it partially on an older pc, try to get it working
and when it finally worked i forgot how it was supposed to work
:-) But after fondling for an hour it all came back to me , and
see you have the premiere Prostat 2000 v2.51 with (afaik) all
the datefields changed and fixed.
If you could be so kind to get it distributed through filenets
and or the web. since i lost most of my connections to the
I will try to repair reported bugs (Willem will afaik not
participate anymore) but i will not be able to release the
pexes for 2.20 simply because i refuse to pay for PB like i
stated earlier :-)
Okay here it comes , tested it at my place and worked as supposed
