The BoatHouse BBS
William "Corky" Wilder, Bob "Crash & Burn" Keen
"I'm not sure how long Bill had The Boathouse up and going I was a member from the late 80's till 1997 or `98. He was driven out like many of the BBSs by local internet service. I believe he held out longer that most due to the fact the he did carry part of the backbone of the UUNet on that mess of systems in what could be euphemistically called a living room. It was great to have access to ALL the news groups that were out there not just a few that the ISP tell us we can get. Bill always went out of his way to help anyone trying to get a BBS going or to try and keep one going. He was the same with his members. If your system was down he'd dig till he found the problem or the part. You "NEEDED" the latest Blue Wave or whatever he would track it for you. I miss him and the Friends at the boathouse." - Dave McDougle

Carey Treesh (Flag Master)C-Net Amiga, Cnet Amiga
"Flag Net started out on a Commodore 64 originally in Niles Michigan at the phone number of 616 (now area code 269) 683-7373. Always running Cnet software, my goal was to be the longest lasting most up-time message base(not download file based) BBS in town. Im proud to say we are still on-line today with our non-Y2K compliant software, its a bit buggy, but still up an running. To access flagnet bbs, telnet to: telnet://bbs.flagnet.org or our old link may still be up... telnet //flagnet.qtm.net" - Carey Treesh

"Flag Net BBS is still on-line via telnet. Our ip address changes, but we try to keep the name active. To access, telnet to bbs.flagnet.org The original telephone number was 616-683-7373, then moved from Niles Michigan, to South Bend Indiana and changed numbers to 219-232-7373. In 1999 we added a telnet in port via a local ISP called Quantum Connections. We are no longer affiliated with them, but have a registered domain name now. The Amiga 2000 with 2 gig scsi hard drive lives in my home in South Bend. All modem access has been terminated to keep cost down. This BBS not well attended too, and activity is very low. But despite this, I made a commitment when I was just a kid with an Commodore 64 to keep it going. Im proud to say, we are still up and running, with all data in-tact since 1994 till today. Message bases, "G-files" and even some "P-files" can still be activated." - Carey Treesh

Ron BlessingForem ST, AMIS, Fido
"Hi Jason, I was the Sysop of Hart City BBS. I started it back in August of 1982 and I can't verify this but I believe I was the second BBS in Indiana. Originally the system consisted of: Atari 800 - 48K (Newell Fast Chip Installed), Atari 810 Disk Drive (appx: 90K), Atari 850 Interface Mod., Hayes 300 Baud Smartmodem, NEC PC-8023A-C Printer. The software I started with was the A.M.I.S. software from MACE, which I ended up making a number of enhancements to. Several years later I moved to a Tandy 2000 and then finally to a PC clone system. Eventually, I just couldn't keep up with the size of the other BBS system around me. I must admit I had the most fun with the Atari and miss those early days. There were a LOT of great people running BBS systems and unselfishly willing to help anyone that needed it. I still have my 800 stored away and wouldn't give it up for anything. Thanks for remembering." - Ron Blessing

Rebecca KingTBBS
"Party Line was a 3-line bulletin board service, run from the home of Rebecca King in South Bend, Indiana, running multi-line TBBS software. It was a node within FidoNet (#227:160). While another local BBS later claimed use of the 160 node, FidoNet nodes were never reused and there is some content on the Web that indicates that the node number was reported in error. While the bulletin board was accessible free of charge, membership required the submission of a copy of one's drivers license. Features included Netmail, multi-line chat, Freeware/Shareware downloads all within a 2-hour limit daily limit." - Rebecca King

"The Night-Time moved to Hammond, IN in 1992 and changed its number to 219-989-1716. In '94 I changed to the name to Ham'nd Eggs to reflect running from Hammond. Night-Time was a play on my name and the fact that the board only ran from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.--on a 1200 baud modem. My (now ex-) wife insisted on a separate phone line when we moved to Hammond. Both systems ran Wildcat, although Ham'nd Eggs had a short sprint under Spirfire." - Bob Nightingale

Scott "The Shadow" Cramer, Keith "The Punisher" CramerWWIV
"We ran Shadownet in Fort Wayne for over 4 years. We started with a 1200 baud modem, then bumped to a 2400 baud modem. We ran briefly at 9600 baud, but shut down soon after. The phone rang off the hook all night long, Our mother in her 60's learned how to reset the computer after crashes. We held Shadownet pizza parties where upwards of 40 people would attend. Our home became known as Shadownet central. We had many users trying to earn an invite over. Users wanted to know what we did on the other side of the computer. We met many of our current friends through the BBS. We were widely known as the Shadownetters. Those were some good days. Kinda geeky, but still good." - Keith Cramer

Dennis WoodPCBoard, PC-Board
"This started out as a test bed for another sysop in the area who was too chicken to convert over from RBBS to the brand new (at the time) PC-Board software. From there on, as they say, the rest is history. When Last Chance finally shut it's electronic doors in 1991 there were over 200 registered users and the system had added a second line. Two dedicated Intel 286 workstations answered the phone with US Robotics HST modems and a third 386 machine was the network server, running on the then brand new Lantastic network hardware and software. The decision by the telephone company (GTE) that this was now a "business" because I solicited donations from users to try and offset the ever-increasing operating costs was the nail in the coffin of this BBS. The entire system was sold intact to a hospital in Dyer, IN and used for staff access. I was fortunate enough to work as an installer and consultant to them for a short while and oversaw the installation of a multi-disk CD-Rom drive (brand new technology at that time) added to the system that allowed access to a vast medical database for the use of doctors and hospital staff. To this day I remember fondly the many people I met thru this BBS, including a couple of online romances that sprung up between users. While the Internet has opened up a vast new world of information and global communication, I still miss the small friendly community of people that frequented my BBS. Thanks to all of you, should anyone who remembers me be reading this." - Dennis Wood

Jeff ReadyPCBoard , Wildcat, PC-Board
"I was the SysOp of this BBS, which was a project started by my dad and I together when I was in the 7th grade as a sort of father-son project. We started with Wildcat software which we used for a long time, briefly used Quick BBS, and finally ended up on PC-BOARD as we evolved into more sophisticated things like participating in FIDO-NET. We started at 1200 baud and one computer, which I would have to take offline if I wanted to call into another BBS because we had just the one. Eventually, we added another line, had two PCs networked together with LANTASTIC, and got a 16.8k US ROBOTICS modem with the special "FOR BBS USE ONLY - NOT FOR RESALE" placard on it because of the special pricing availble to SysOps.

"I remember being amazed at the whole FIDO next message board/email system -- being able to send a message from the local BBS, then watching as our system auto-dialed a system in Chicago at night, which would then dial some other system, and eventually the message would make its way to the intended recipient. An email and a reply might take days to complete, but it was still electronic and free, which was just the coolest thing ever. Little did we know then what those early email-relay systems would evolve into.

"We kept the BBS going even while I was in college, although from '93-96 the whole BBS thing was really in its twilight. For a number of years we won the prestigious (LOL) "Northwest Indiana's Best BBS Award" - heck we may well have won that ever year such voting actually took place -- at least 3 or 4 times anyway.

"I look back now and can't believe how much things have changed, but since I got out of school I've been a technology entrepreneur, I've started a number of internet related companies, raised venture capital, did the dot-com thing, and here I am still at it -- and I probably owe it all to running that BBS with my dad when I was 13 years old. My first "real" business out of college was an ISP in 1996, which was really nothing more than a more modern BBS, with dial up modems and the whole bit.

"The funny thing is that you can't even talk about the BBS days to people that didn't experience them first hand, because it all seems so foreign - yet if you were there, the evolution to where we are now is plain as day.

"Anyway, thanks for having this site - I stumbled onto it by complete accident as I was checking a caller ID call I missed, and somehow this came up. It really has brought back some memories."

"Now if I can just remember how to play Tradewars... Thanks again." - Jeff

"I had a blast running The Village...Didn't know anything about BBS'ing at first. Got a Atari 800Xl and a 300 baud modem and started going online. Met Nick Hard and Glenn Holt of N.W.I.P.C.U.G. and learned a LOT from them. Upgraded to 1200 and 2400 eventually as money permitted...( the kids were still young then, and I'd just bought my house! Ran the BBS on a 40 MB Control Data Wren II drive...pretty good sized in those days, some folks were running boards on 8 in. floppies!!! Nick moved for health reasons, and I haven't seen Glenn in years, but I made a lot of friends over the board." - Number 2
