See the announcement below. Also any new applicants will be given access to B4GATE, and almost any system on UUHECNET can be reached through it..
The cool thing is that we have over 30 nodes in the network, of which I estimate at least 10-15 are online at any given moment.

B4GATE appears to have become the de facto hub of UUHECNET since
MRGATE is down and not likely to reappear. With this in mind,
I'll periodically post a list of systems registered with B4GATE.
Basically, all mail (unless direct host to host) on UUHECNET
now goes through B4GATE, which also acts as an SMTP gateway
for the UUCP nodes that have *.uuhec.net domain names.

The following systems are directly connected to b4gate.
Please note that even if the connection is defined, there
is no guarantee that host will be running, thus message
delivery cannot be guaranteed.
Sample bangpath: b4gate!pyffle!sampsa send a message to the
user sampsa on the pyffle machine via b4gate.

Good news everyone – Turnkey Pyffle v0.21 (due out July-ish) will have a curses-based installation wizard to guide you through those annoying installation steps that might have kept some of you from installing it.
[Reposted from comp.bbs.waffle] Pyffle BBS – Waffle for the New American Century
Pyffle was created as a tribute to the coolest BBS software ever in existence, Waffle.
Unfortunately the only version floating around nowadays is a binary-only copy of version 1.65 for DOS from 1993 or so (which I do run on B4BBS, http://sampsa.com/b4bbs, through DOSBOX, with UUCP and everything) as the Unix sources have gone missing – this prompted the creation of Pyffle, the Python re-implementation of Waffle for Unix.
Well, someone on comp.bbs.waffle saw my shameless plug and had a look, and liked what they saw:
DECADES ago now, I happenstanced upon a neato Waffle v1.64 board called
China Cat Sunflower, I felt, and still do, that it made computers
Now I find Pyffle!
You can imagine my general elation!
I'm so grateful to have found a WAFFLE system!
