I wrote Net-Mate somewhere around 1990 or so, and fiddled with it
over the years. I never released this terminal program because it
wasn't really complete enough to hand out, but since it's modular and
uses plug-ins like Projector-3 does, I could try to build a basic
copy of it with a few emulation drivers and file transfer protocol drivers.
Net-Mate can display the graphics characters we use to see on the
"fancy" BBSes back in the day. I think it does 8 FG and 8 BG colors
which looks very nice but the font is a reduced pixel font similar to
those old 51 character patches for BASIC. It looks nice and has
pop-up windows and a menu bar up top.
I can make a Rainbow IDE project out of Net-Mate when I get time so
One could just load it up and click GO to build the .dsk image of the
program, and maybe even finish the dern thing.
