4.16.2023 ... Mike Woltz, creator of Spitfire BBS
I found out sad news that the creator of Spitfire BBS has passed.
Best wishes to his family. His website is now down so I created a copy
as downloads were not working on the Wayback Machine:
https://x-bit.org/spitfire/. Mike was still avalable in 2021-22 to answer questions or dig up old reg codes for SF. In fact i found
a bug in the SF Newsletter and Bulletins where SF was not keeping track
of when they were updated. He fixed this bug and sent me updated
spitfire.exe and spitfire.ovr files! Sadly, i don't think this made it
to the last release Spitfire 3.7. Lastly, here is a pic my registered copy of SF that i still have dating back to 1993 :)
