While C/S mode is a bit outdated and requires some work to get connected that way (I use a Windows 2000 VM), I would hate to see support for it disappear. I only use it for the Remote Console and the online Menu Editor, but both are great features to be able to monitor the BBS and to make menu changes without having to shut down the BBS.

I also use C/S mode with the Sysop account for multitasking Tele, Remote Console and other admin functions.

It gives me the added benefit of being able to copy and paste lengthy text.

And honestly, some activities such as creating Keys and Classes are a little more user-friendly in C/S.

+1 for it's continued usage.

Good point. At one point I did some research onto best practices for porting old VB3 code. But even "back in the day" when I was a VB developer it was mostly VB6... crazy.
