I've got a thread here on getting the Amiga online, and if that doesn't show off most of my settings there's a video linked there as well. I use ANSI almost exclusively on A-Talk, that's simply the emulation most boards use, although that VT-100 mode seems to work with all the ANSI ones I tried it on, and maybe some people might like that font more. Otherwise I think all the other board emulation modes are not used these days.
I did responded to your post on Particles, and while I don't particularly wish for this to come off as nasty, I am a firm believer in giving absolute credit where it is due, and when the opposite does not occur from others I do get a little ticked off... Not from you but in a reply to that post on Particles, so I would thus like to just leave this quote from the very thread featured on this board, noting that nobody helped me in finding A-Talk III, a wonderful program from one of the creators of the Amiga.

"I had absolutely no help in collecting the information for this guide. All other guides steered me way off track, all advice simply did not work. I give absolutely no thanks to anybody on the internet for the collection of this information other than myself, and Intric8 for links to a couple good BBS’. I felt stupid trying in vain to get this to happen, and to get it to happen cheaply… Because when nobody out there can even tell you how to get your system online in the first place, why would you want to pay money on new hardware you don’t even know is going to work?"
May also be worthwhile to read a couple of the replies to that thread from others noting how they are now going to try A-Talk III...
