This is a new post from OpenLive. My site hosted by WordPress is much faster then motd. That’s probably because the servers are swapping back and forth and checking users and permission. Posting directly to WordPress is a nicer experience.
Open Writer is working fine. This is an avatar I use a lot on the Web. Synchronet is being modernized and now has avatars too. I perfer using the BBS for social networking but I still keep a few WordPress sites updated.
