How Many Remember the Good Old Days?

Recommended Posts


Anyone remember the era of BBSing?

I use to run a BBS back in the late 1980's to 1995. I got back into it back in 2011, and still have one running (not up 24 hours, it's only up when I am in the mood to putter around), and I thought hey why not share the experience with those who may never have visited one before.

If you want to take a ride back in time then look at his link.

Have Fun!

Also, if you are interested in running your own, visit the links below...

This were my first steps with any sort of networking too. Well first came something called Videotext here, which my parents used mostly for banking but it had a modem connected to a line. It didn't take me long to find a booklet with different BBS numbers I could phone and I'll never forget the first time someone called "SysOp" talked to me ;) My main drive was software though, games in particular. The BBS we used the most had tons of shareware to download, it was paradise :D

But it was only a brief time, about a year later the internet arrived in Switzerland and I never looked back again ;)

I always lamented being a bit too young for the golden age of BBSes in the late 80s.

It's ok, I missed WWII and it pisses me off. I would have been one of the "devils in baggy pants". The best I could do was to join them later,
