From the January 1996 issue of Boardwatch: New York's best BBS. Free downloads for new users. More than 14 gig of shareware and freeware. Internet, Usenet, e-mail. Large adult files area. MC Visa Amex.

From the September 1994 issue of Boardwatch: New York City, NY since 03/84. Sysop: Michael Sussell. Using PCBoard 15.1 with 48 lines on MS-DOS/NOVELL-3.11 with 99999 MB storage. US Robotics at 28800 bps. $15 Monthly fee. New York's best BBS! Free down-loads for new users. More than 14 gig of share-ware and freeware. Internet/Usenet E-mail. Large adult files area. Master/Visa/Amex.

"I ran Normandeau Newswire as a SIG there. Favorite amongst readers was "Filthy Food for Thought" which were highlights of FDA recalls which at that time I had to get via dial-up from FDA. I published the list of "Allowable Filth Limits in Food". When it went down, there were OVER 100 phone lines. In last few years there came about an FCC MONTHLY surcharge of a few dollars on each phone line. BSS was in its hayday during DOS. Mew computers came with Windows and preloaded with AOL or other on-line GUI software so people didn't go hunting for BBSs to call. Declining revenue VS escalating cost brought it down." - Ray

VTUG-BBS
(1982-1985)
Adam JacobsRAVICS
"Noticed that my BBS wasn't in your list! I think its story is mildly interesting, so... here's a brief summary. I ran VTUG-BBS for somewhere between 2 and 3 years, starting in the fall of 1982, first on a VIC-20 and then on a C-64. I wrote the software, RAVICS, which was -- I believe -- the first BBS available for these machines. VTUG stood for VIC Technical Users' Group, although I never really got a user's group off the ground - the BBS was all there was to it. The BBS was initially fairly simple - a single message base and "chat with the sysop" - but rapidly developed into a reasonably interesting system with multiple message bases, private mail, tree-structured conferencing, and uploads/downloads (which were, however, a relatively unimportant part of the BBS's culture - this was long before the warez days). I think the user base was a couple hundred and the system was off-hook pretty much 24 hours a day at the peak. I wrote the software on a VIC-20 shortly after obtaining the VICmodem (for my 13th birthday - I'd received the VIC for Christmas a few months before!) and hacking up a simple autoanswer device for it. I'm sure it was the first, and possibly the only BBS on a VIC-20. Without really setting out to do so, I sold a few copies of it and I bought the C-64 with the proceeds shortly after its release. Of course I promptly "ported" the BBS to the 64, so RAVICS was probably the first BBS software available for the C-64 as well - this was at a time when virtually all BBSs, at least in 212, ran on Apple IIs, TRS-80s, etc. In the next couple of years I ran VTUG and sold a reasonable number of copies of RAVICS to sysops around the country (despite having no advertising other than the BBS itself).

"In 1984 I sold the C-64, sold the rights to RAVICs, and bought an IBM PC XT. I made some half-hearted attempts to write a BBS for the PC, and ran some third-party software for a while at 534-3149, but I was in high school by then and I was spending too much time thinking about girls and mathematics. I relinquished the title of sysop and became instead a user: a denizen of the legendary Ailanthus Tree. Thanks for a site that brings back some memories from nearly 20 years ago - although my BBS is far from the only interesting one from those days that is missing from your 212 list! Let me know if you're interested in any of the others I remember... BTW I posted a message to Usenet in 2002 requesting info about the later life of RAVICS (after I sold it) - archived at http://www.bbsdocumentary.com/software/COMMODORE/VIC-20/RAVICS/adam.txt and http://mail.textfiles.com/pipermail/cosysops/2003-February/000046.html, but note that the email address I gave in the message is no longer active. That message gives a few more details about VTUG/RAVICS. I never received any replies, unfortunately, so I still don't know what happened to RAVICS later on, though I know that there were BBSs running RAVICS for at least a few years more...." - Adam Jacobs

It's been a very long time since I seen the name of my BBS on the monitor. I was the Sysop of Fever BBS. The system was running on an Atari Computer serving the City of NY user groups MANIA and AFUG. The BBS started out back in 1987 and pulled its plug 5 years later." - Victor M. Alvarado

Flash Traffick
(1994-1998)
Josh Ehrlich, Julian GrahamPC Board
"We got started a little bit late in the game, so we had some trouble bringing in the calls. However, as we were both somewhat active in the local and national computer art scenes, Flash Traffick became a distribution site for several prominent ansi/ascii groups. Most of our callers were from 212 and 718, but we got some from as far away as 516 and 914."

Phone bills then were 10x more what they are now lol. One user at a time of course. Took it down whenever I wanted to log into The Great Beyond (DDial) lol until I bought the phone line for it.

"I was one of the sysops. Originally we were set up (illicitly) in the computer room of a midtown advertising agency. It is a VERY amusing story -- pity you didn't know about it before the movie! We eventually migrated to the offices of a communications firm elsewhere in the city. I still have the Big Electric Cat user manual, with its very entertaining cover.

"We were one of the very first CBBS systems in use, and we *were* the first one with multiple floppy's always online (1mb across four drives IIRC). M*O*M was heavily trafficked by the Phreak community although it was not a Phreak board per se. In late 1978 we took a KIM-1 and used it as a controller so that we could run Ward's [now modified - poorly] code to accomodate multiple lines: by the time 1979 became the year you remembered to write on your checks, we had 2 lines available on a 24x7 basis. This was *extremely* unusual in 1979: CBBS was still on it's birth curve, and only supported a single "user". I've been wanting to send this in for years, but I couldn't find any floppies (8 inchers: if there's any left, it should be obvious, right?) or flyers. Then were sitting here talking about it, and the number just popped into my head unannounced!!! Now it's yours. :-)"

"Built the system on a mod 1 trs-80. Had, at the time, about 150 regular users, including most of the leading lights of the phone phreaker community that met in greenwich village under the name "TAP". Also a large selection of downloadable programs for broadcast engineers. The experience of running/maintaining/hacking a beeb got me into the computer industry full-time. Still have the system I used, as well as the software. Pack rat, you know...:)" - Bryan Boyle
