04.16.2023 ... 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 that 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 :)
