John SingletonNetworks BBS
"I ran NWDS while in high school, and actually met my first girlfriend through it. NWDS started out as a stock Networks BBS on an Apple II+ with a Hayes Micromodem (300baud) and 5mb hard drive. I gradually rewrote all of it to include better email, online multiplayer games (taking turns each signon), graphic displays (HGR line drawings), and a romance-matchmaking game. I went pay somewhere in there because I was only earning $3.85/hr, and couldn't afford to keep the BBS going myself. NWDS was one of the more sophisticated BBSes, and so had a loyal local following. In the last year, I had about 50 paying subscribers. Lightning eventually took the BBS down, and I couldn't afford to repair the hardware. I look back at those first years online as some of the most magical ever. All the marvel and excitement of something new was there... and it was all as naive as were the 80's innocent." - John Singleton

"It was actually run out of my co-sysop's townhouse, as I did all the development on a Tandy 1000HX and it didn't have a hard disk. The BBS itself ran happily off of the HX's dual floppy setup though and that is how it was tested. My cosysop's name was Mike, though I'm afraid I don't remember his last name. It was taken offline when he had a hard disk crash. Until I found your list, I no longer remembered the phone number that was used and browsing the lists for the 301/202/703 area codes brings back a lot of memories. I'm currently in the process of resurrecting Mount Olympus as a Telnet BBS, still using QuickBBS. It is already functional on my local network using NetFOSS. I currently have screenshots from one of my backups put up on my webpage at http://www.cchaven.com. Thanks for the memories. Take care." - Jeff Hellige
