Use Telnet BBS's with proper ANSI emulation Apps
Believe it or not, there are a few of us who still enjoy using Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's), which have gone from being accessible by a telephone to accessible via telnet.

If you use a Mac and are a BBS user, you probably have noticed some of your favorite door games do not look right, nor do they function correctly. Even ANSI art appears strange when viewed from X11's Xterm or Terminal, and there is no real way to do file transfers with protocols such as ZModem.

Enter SyncTERM, which handles all of the above with ease -- and is completely free. I'm now able to enjoy a good game of Food Fight or Trade Wars.
