Nothing to see here. Just just firing up access on the old eternal
September account to see if it still works.

FWIW

It’s pretty amazing that ES is still around. With all the other social
options, newsgroups have fallen pretty far. Add that ES is text only makes
it even more surprising.

It is also cool that there is continued support (or at least it still
works) for NewsTap on the iPhone and you can dive into nostalgia heaven! ;)

FWIW

Wow ;)

I registered and tried to reply, but when I press R on the message
display nothing happens, the terminal just redraws...

Do you mean at Agency BBS as a logged in user?
It could be because your account was not yet validated after signing up as
a new user.

If you do opt to telnet to the BBS I'd recommend a client like Netrunner
you will find a copy of that at mysticbbs.com

BBS address is agency.bbs.nz using good old port 23

Yes, I tried out of curiosity.

I guess plain old telnet will suffice for the moment :)

I just logged in again, again tried to press 'R' on the message reading
screen and again nothing changed (the screen just redrawed).

It could be you're not validated so can read but not post?
What is the username you used? I can login and check :)
