Dixie Flatline WWIV
"I remember setting up a BBS several years after becoming a user, before the internet was made widely available (in fact, back when HTTP was still being developed). I was 16 at the time and ran the BBS out of my allowance at first, and then the funds from my first job on a hand-me-down 286 with a 1200 baud modem. Over the years, I upgraded it to a 486 with a 9600 vbis/etc modem and connected to WWIVnet and WWivLink and a local network whose name I forget. We even lived through the 209/559 area code split. As the internet became available, users stopped flocking to the BBSs and instead went online. We lost something in the conversion from BBSs to the internet that we won't easily get back, as the internet is too big and too diverse to accommodate that community feeling. I miss my friends from those days, the pizza parties, the conversations. If any of my old friends visit textfiles.com and see this, know that I'm thinking of you." - Dixie Flatline

Jeff Wood, Mr. Byte & NybblesVBBS, Image 1.2 T-rels, Network mods
"Why would anyone name a BBS West Point Power & Light? Well, when I first migrated from my Commodore 64/Image BBS system to an IBM, I obtained a 1000 watt UPS system. A friend of mine commented that I could run the town on the UPS if we lost power...West Point is quite small...thus the name "West Point Power & Light." - Jeff Wood

"Byte's Mess was a flamethrowing Commodore 64 with a 256kREU and a Lt. Kernal hard drive. Hacking that monster to run with Image was a chore...but that was what we did in the old days. The hardware used to run "Th' Mess": 1 Commodore 64, 256 Ram cartridge, 1 1541 160k floppy, 2 1581 800k floppies, 1 40Mb Lt Kernal HD (what a HACK that was...) At one point we were going to run it next to West Point Power & Light and call it "Nybbles' Nest"..." - Jeff Wood

Comline BBS
(1984-1985)
Mike YunCustom written in C-64 BASIC and compiled with Blitz
"Originally written in BASIC line by line, Comline operated on a Commodore 64 with no floppy drive. This meant I could never turn off the computer because it would erase all users and messages. I eventually got a floppy drive and merged the users in a single sequential (not random) file. I was quite proud of that user file coding because no id # was required for login. I eventually released Termline, a terminal program for Commodore 64 users complete with buffers, x and z modem protocols, and quick dialing." - Mike Yun

Jason KnappHomegrown
"This BBS was my early teenage social life. I did start with some public domain software that I spliced together but I don't remember the references--it wasn't Fido or anything. All run on Atari with a 300 baud modem. I wrote everything in Microsoft Basic, and eventually lost control of the spaghetti code. I had some experimental features to my BBS: it was all themed as if you were in a medieval village and read like a simple Infocom (remember those?) game. Sometimes if you were at a menu prompt, something surprising would happen based on random timers like "a beggar comes up to you and asks for a pence"--if you choose not to give him one, some random % of the time the system would say that he calls you a cheap scoundrel and pulls a knife and kills you for your money--then when you tried to log back in during the next 24 hours the system would deny access saying "sorry, you're dead!". Or if you gave him something it might reward you with higher level access. Or maybe something else would happen~Wyou never knew! Anyway, it got quite popular and the modem was basically busy 24 hours a day until I took it down (and then the line was still constantly ringing for some several months. Some great memories. Thanks for doing this!" - Jason Knapp

Dave Rasmussen & Liz Driver
"Just add it was an Amiga-ran BBS, I forgot the name of the software we used at the time. Might have been Skyline? BBS software for amiga's only, allowed online amiga graphics.. I created the flying, fire breathing dragon animation for the log in. We ran that BBS on an amiga 2000. My name is Liz, at the time my ex and I ran that board. Him and that machine are part of history now. Dave Rasmussen did the programing to the board, I was the graphic person. Seeing the listing of other boards from that time period and from the modesto area brought back many memories. The BBS pizza parties, and other local get togethers with the sysops..and users...something lost when the internet came." - Liz Driver

"One of the first BBSes in Sonora. Briefly a Cat-Fur/Catsend line, but for most of its life a message board, text-file serving BBS. I posted a lot of serialized fiction, much of it by myself, making it a precursor to the Internet-based magazine InterText, which I started in 1991." - Jason Snell

"Nathan and I were both high school students at Sonora High School. He was 1 or 2 years ahead of me. We were good friends, and since he was going to be graduating, operation was transferred to me instead of just shutting the BBS down entirely. Of course, I liked using BBSes, but one of my interests in taking over operation was that I was at the time an OS freak. (I am writing you from pine on FreeBSD, connected by a Mac OS X terminal) What good was having a system that could dual-boot OS/2 2.0 and Windows NT 3.1 Beta if you didn't have an 'important' BBS to run? I can report that the BBS ran under NT 3.1 almost all of the time, as I found that the 'Tosser' functions for inter-BBS message transfer ran faster due to NT's apparently better disk cache functions, but the tradeoff was OS/2 2.0 had a better shot of running a DOS game at the same time; what a dilemma. BBS networks were another fascination. In 1994 I started an ISP, which I run to this day. In fact, I think one of the ways I helped gauge interest in 'the Internet' was by posting on some of the local BBSes.. I think I saw a printout of that post in some of my old papers a while ago." - Brian Curnow

Zero.HourWWIV
"The Electric Harley House of Love was born from a crappy 286 motherboard that would take several attempts to start up. As a result I never turned it off, and in my infinite wisdom I decided since I had a computer I never turned off and a dedicated phone line I would run a BBS, a 2400 baud bbs in the age of 14.4 and 28000 baud bbs's, to slow to pirate software, not interesting enough to sustain messageboards, and since I was 16 in a conservitate christian home no good porn. It was the only open acess board in the area (why do I care who you are, and calling my users to verify who they were was a pointless waste of time) I did let me get an interesting list of what people thought the secret name of god was, as WWIV wouldn't let me run an open access bbs I changed the signup questions to random questions and people STILL asked why I was asking for personall info on an open access board, for christs sake READ people. Yeah, I'm a angry bastard, bbs's were perfect for me as almost every bbs caller was/is an angry nerd, good time's, good times..... Since I'm moving back to the area next month I am exercising extream dorkiness and puting the board back up, with the same 286 if it's still in my parents attic (no I won't be living with them) It will be like old times, no callers and a great excersise in futility." - Zero.Hour

"The Biggest Undergroud HPAC in 209 at the time. Even carried CCI ( Cybercrime International Network) for a brief period. Sysop ran RoT e-zine and wrote for HOE and VAS. Claim to fame was the 1500+ archive of virus' and codes. It was a single line 2400 bps on an old 386. Local callers ( anyone in 209 ) was basically denied and the 500+ LD and international callers kept it alive with basically 1 day files. Over 5000+ files were onhand...very large for that day and age." - Korrupt

"The software was shareware from Cott Lang in Pascal, based on the source code of Telegard, I downloaded it from a dial up BBS on a 2400 baud modem,I was just 6 or 7 years old, I used a PS2 that my mom had bought from Montgomery Ward, she made me research the cost of a computer and show them the ad that promised a price, I think it was $1,000 or more, later I got a separate telephone line for the BBS, which was a single user system that had so many ridiculous rules that hardly made sense. Most people did not make it through the scroll down entry, as I had a huge message written in just 0's and 1's, it was a design that I made look like a tree, my plan was to have lots of pages that you could load instead of the single scrolling page, I eventually wanted to make it more like an framework for a community newspaper, I was fascinated with the weather since we lived just west of the snowline, I thought it might be important for me to bring satellite images down from Prodigy and post them on my BBS for download by people who had phone numbers that were not long distance (at the time I had no concept of copyrights as I was only 8 years old by that time, about the same time the computer moved from the family den room near the kitchen, to the area behind the couch in the living room that was in the formal dining room, this was my first concept of setting up my own online command center.) I think that I had composed over 10 pages of community rules, in Microsoft Works, then later in notepad, and I had printed versions that were numbered since I didn't have knowledge to re-write the BBS framework, I had to make my rules comply with the existing parameters. I remember promoting my BBS on other BBS's, then I would hang up, and wait for other people to dial up to my computer, I would of course watch everything they did, and I made some improvements, that is where I first learned about source control and documentation. I was making backup directories using MS-DOS batch commands and saving them to a disk, I would carry the disks with me to school and work on the code on school lab computers whenever I could. It was the same as what my Mom did at her office, but for me I was the boss of the data, things of never changed." - Mike Hamanaka

Was a member of several Commodore BBS networks - UBAN, NISSA, FNET, COMM-NET, (?) identified as SLR. Notable features were Commodore files (PD/Utilities), story boards and on-line games, and network discussion boards. Board folded as I got too busy on other projects, though I still had a few callers near the end." - Joe Commodore

J. HillHome rolled in Better BASIC
"Ran a very complex and total custom BBS. All the code was in Better BASIC. Supported file transfers and *.wav files... a remote controlled FM radio served up WAV files of the station you could pick. Also, had a message base tie into the ham radio BBS system known as packet radio. I moved a lot and put a diverter line in Hughson, California to forward the calls out to Waterford so it would not be long distance from Modesto. We used to have local user parties in this area and all the sysops would hook up for drinks and PC Support. There's over 1000 users in my old BBS database... I could and did run on DOS 2.11 (300 baud) through to DOS 6.2 (9600/14.4kbps). I kind of ran under Windows 3.01 but we found AOL and soon after the Internet in 1997 and lost interest fast after we got our house in Salida. Now I run a low-power FM station (KQRP). For me, it's always been about serving the community." - Brad (J.Hill)

"Why "In Exile"? WPP&L was started in West Point, but because I had to leave the mountain under circumstances that weren't of my choosing, I added the bit. But the UPS stayed with me, and while it never was put to the test of running the whole town of West Point, it did manage to keep 3 computers and my stereo running for hours if the power went out." - Jeff Wood
