    Hi guys!

    For a long time, I used merge programs with relative success. But I
    have some packages that I can't merge.

    In BWCOMB it accuses "many BBS areas" and it is true, it exceeded
    the program limit.

    In BWSAVE it says "Insufficient memory reading file BBS_NAME.INF".
    Perhaps due to the large number of areas.

    BWMERGE freezes, don't work.

    Is there any modification to the INF or XTI files to reduce the
    number of areas (erasing unsubscribes for example) or something else
    to fix and merge packets? Or another Bluewave merge program?

    Edit: I tried convert BW to QWK packets to use QWK merge tools but
    has errors on date field if BW packet was created by OLMS.
