Hi, everybody, I'm back from the sun (Gran Canaria for one week) and have
just read through my mailbox (~300 mail-messages in one week!!!!).  I've
seen people ask for the ADOSFS, and I'll try to put together a package
this week, really!!!  It'll be GPL'd and readonly though, as I've done
nothing new for the last couple of months.

I compiled sup for NetBSD-amiga today and did a:
tredir 871
and sup works almost good over term, the only problem I've had seems
to be term-related, dropping connections unnecessarily, although I
can't say it for sure.  As term will work allright over a 2400 line
you can always go that way.

Good luck!
