Cool Coco BBS
(1983-1986)
Not tellingCustom drivers - Chaos OS for CoCo
"Cool CoCo was one of the first BBS systems operating in Connecticut in 1983. We had at least three of them running in the Meriden - Wallingford area. Using hacked sprint long distance numbers the BBS was also capable of dialing out to establish "secure" connections. We tried to sell stuff like disks & software on the BBS. It seemed that everyone that we knew was able to make, break, and copy software. Pirates didn~Rt need to buy software. The BBS was run on a slightly modified RS Color Computer. One with 128 KB memory, 3 disk drives with custom hardware interrupts. The software used was called Chaos. It was an OS that Skolnik developed and tried to sell. He was a kid genius who spoke machine code as fluently as English. The hijinks that went on in that era were a hoot. Many users made attempts at crashing the system. One time a ~Sspecial~T code was sent to BBS. A code that reformatted the drive and repetitively slammed the read/write head against the sides of the unit. Not a very nice thing to do. Most memorable moment was a loud knock on the door from an FBI agent who was investigating a bank robbery. My BBS & name was posted on a Danbury BBS that was somehow involved in the crime. Considering the mass of hacked printed sprint numbers on hand the FBI encounter was nerve rattling. Another more jaded memory was the quantity of pornography that was being distributed on the Computer Bulletin Board systems." - Anonymous

Starquest & Billy "The Other Sysop" BlazeBBS Express, BBS Express Professional
"It was run on an Atari 800XL. Some users refused to believe it because it ran faster than the IBM boards at the time, plus it had ANSI support and 80 column menus. It was one of the few boards that didn't believe in rules and real names. If you didn't use a handle, you got deleted. And I know I ticked off a few other sysops in the area and across the network... ]:->" - Billy Blaze

VISAR (Rueckgauer Systems Technical Support)
(1983-1988)
Jeff RueckgauerVirtual Services Exchange (VSX)
"VISAR (acronym for Virtual Information Storage and Retrieval) was the online technical and customer support facility for Rueckgauer Systems between 1983 and 1986. It ran on the company's proprietary Virtual Services Exchange platform, which provided seamless integration between the BBS and the internal network for electronic mail, schedule, message boards, FAQs, file libraries and transfers. This vastly simplified sysop tasks, as the BBS appeared to be just another folder on the local network. It also freed-up the modem connection typically used by a sysop dialing in to do maintenance, or be present.

"Callers could use any conventional communication/terminal program, such as Hayes Smartcom or Procomm+ for a standard TTY or ANSI interface. Callers using Rueckgauer Systems' vxC comm program in DOSMENU or DOSMENU/VS, or who were on Wang OIS or VS systems, interacted with the site exactly as if it were part of their local computer or internal network resources, using the DOSMENU user interface (which was a clone of the Wang OIS interface). Messages/discussion boards appeared as Wang or VSX mail or message boards; file libraries appeared as folders on their computer or shared from their server.

"VISAR was more like a modern-day website than the typical company BBS of the day. The BBS provided clients direct interaction with the internal project management, customer service and accounting systems.

"VISAR's first host was an IBM XT running DOSMENU/VS 1.1 with 640K and two external Hayes 2400 modems. The hardware was upgraded to an IBM AT running DOSMENU/VS 2.0 in early 1985 with two 4-port serial boards supporting 8 Hayes 2400 modems. The final host was an IBM PS/2 Model 80 running DOSMENU/VS 5.2 with 8mb of memory, a 320mb drive, and two 16-port serial boards with a mix of 2400 and 9600 Hayes modems. The host was connected to the network at first using a Davong ARCnet LAN; it was replaced with an IBM PC Network LAN in 1985.

"The VISAR BBS was phased out during 1988 as Rueckgauer Systems moved its support platform to CompuServe. It was shutdown on October 28, 1988, coinciding with the company's relocation to Boston. The DOSMENU/VS product line sold over 10K copies of the Server product and over 40K copies of the Workstation and standalone product between introduction in 1983 and discontinuation in 1991."

"Hi, I was just browsing the internet, and came accross your site. I am Karl Ramonas, the founder of micro-net. Actually, I began in 1980 as spectra-board. I am a developer, and i developed all the software myself, the BBS later became info-net, then micro-net micronet is actually still in existance (www.micro-net.com) , once the internet came about, i became an internet ISP, and in 1999 sold to a public company during the internet boom. i know alot of history about the early days in connecticut, i was actually one of the first 2 bbs's in connecticut, the other was called cool-coco, run by someone named cliff skolnick (also a developer)." - Karl Ramonas

Ralph Kramden & The LunaticGBBS Pro
"We started Milliways as an easy way to leave messages for my parents when I went away to college, but it quickly became MUCH more than that. In fact, it got to the point where it was so busy that I had trouble logging in myself! We ran on an Apple //c with an external 800k 3.5" drive and a USRobotics Courier 2400 modem. The board ran strong until we had a winter day in 1995 with multiple power outages that killed the power supply for the //c. I was planning to move to Texas shortly thereafter and, alas, Milliways saw its last caller. I did give the software (which included a lot of customizations by both myself and The Shadow, who ran Treasure Vault ][) to a fellow who said he would run the BBS on his machine, but I'm not sure what happened after that. Great, great times. --Ralph Kramden (boy -- THERE's a handle/signoff I haven't typed in a LONG time!)"

"24/7 bbs running on a C64, 1200/2400 BPS Hayes then Supra, (3)1541 drives complete with fan running so they would not over-heat. A elite BBS running warez, online games, chat rooms etc.. I wish I had the opening page file still. It was a nice picture of the batman logo above a building done by a friend of mine that was brilliant for a ansi graphic." - Gordon Murray

"My BBS went though 3 phases with some gaps (less then a year) between them. The first BBS was started about 86 on a CoCo2 with a single 5.25" drive called 'CoCo Masters Corner' on a 300bps modem. I do not recall the name of the s/w as it was some free published code out of rainbow magazine. Then I upgraded to the CoCo3, 2400bps and dual drives. I ended up buying some software called TMBBS (Time Machine BBS) which I heavily modified/re-wrote with the original programmers blessing (Paul from St. Louis whom I worked with. He included some of my mods into the core code base) and re-named SCBBS (Supreme Color BBS due to the great color ANSI graphics support of the s/w). I named the BBS 'The USS Excelsior'. The great thing about TMBBS it had 4 built in online games folks logged in could play and interact/fight with other users who would get a message next time they logged in (did not support multi-player). A D&D type game, a future trade wars type game, a text adventure you could bring your D&D character into and a casio where you could gamble (blackjack 21, slots, horse racing, dice) your loot from either of the other games. Around 92 I migrated over to a IBM and setup the final BBS, Called the 'X-Files BBS database' and ran it on Obv/2 software. I ended up running 2 physical lines with a 3rd one locally (I could log in at the PC locally while 2 other people were logged in via the nodes). I was on fidomail and with a few friends who ran BBS's even set up our own echomail network for awhile me being the central hub. Around 94 due to real lise issues I finally went off like BBS wise for good and witht he boom of the net never restarted for obvious reasons. This was a great time and I recall many fun and of course drama filled events I could perhaps write a book on. Needless to say it certainly was not a unexciting time in my life and am quite glad I was riding the wave of this once great hobby." - Peter White
