I monitor their newsgroup, but there haven't been any progess in the last few years. The old server is occasionally down. It doesn't look good. It's unfortunate that Ben Young (the programmer who wrote Inn Revival's server) is against open sourcing his server.

Thanks,
I checked and it's identical to the 2.2 I have - just without YSERBIUS, TWINION and a patch file named 198.SO.
Checking this file, it looks like a Note Logger used by SysOps, which was probably removed before shipping.
I don't know how it ended in my version of INN 2.2.

Here are some funny strings from it:
  • Not a bug; a feature.
  • Blame Dave Slayback.
  • FORMATTING C:
  • Your opinion doesn't count!
  • Who put that in there?
  • Its a Fatal Art bug!
  • Not the Mamma!
  • Fine, YOU fix MiniGolf!
  • Again!!!
  • Mike says, "get to work!!"
  • Looks good... SHIP IT!
  • Quick, get some RAID.

I guess Dave Slayback was a systems guy.

Hi!

Firstly, I want to congratulate you with regard to the work that you are doing during the last years in this website.

I'm a fan of classic video games since I was a child and I have got a lot of them with their boxes and manuals. It reminds me of good memories. But particulary I'm a fan of Sierra On-Line video games and its ImagiNation Network. In fact, I've been holding tournaments through ImagiNation Revival and my website some time before.

However, I write you because I was collaborating with a spanish TV program (a part about golf and video games) sending the scripts and the videos and I used one broadcast to talk about the ImagiNation Network and Ken Williams.

I guess you can be interested in this, so here you have the link:

Let Ken Williams know about it, maybe he could also be interested :)

The best way to probably reach Ken Williams is on Facebook, since he's on there (if you're on there also). I believe he (still?) visits Sierra Gamers also, so you can check there too.
