Hi Christian

HXD is basically Hotline for Unix & Linux, in case your unfamiliar with
Hotline is is basically a BBS/Chat/File sharing client/server suit which
came out for Macintosh back in about 1996, it then ported to Windows and
then to Unix/Linux as S-HXD & HXD.  If you've seen Wired for Mac OX X then
that is fairly similar.

I had problems getting Wired and HXD to compile under NetBSD 1.6.1 on my
Qube II, basically both package complained of pthread support (pthread h).
I've since run NetBSD 2.0 i386 under Virtual PC on my Mac and both complied
OK meaning I *should* be able to use my Qube II to run a Wired/S-HXD server
which I want to do because of my interest in NeXT computers and also Silicon

If you want more info on Hotline head out to

Be warned though some of these servers are a lot less honourable than the
people frequenting this mail list, hence you'll find bad things on 'em if
you look hard enough.
