Jeff SquiresT.A.G. , Image 1.2 - TAG
"I started Communication Connection on a Commodore 64 with Image 1.2 software and after getting a PC switched to TAG software. I enjoyed running the board and the many users I had call the board. At it's peak Communication Connection was on 4 lines and getting over 100 calls a day but buy the end in 1998 the call had dwindled to less than 5 and I decided to pull the plug. I miss those days and the users of my board." - Jeff Squires

Bryan Stanbridge, Bryan Stanbridge MIRenegade
"All the information is essentially correct. However, since I was only 7 in 1987, that's not when I started the board. It ran from 95-99, as best I can remember. We ran Renegade the entire time, but dropped the "of Wayreth" part a little over halfway through the run and just became The Forest BBS. (I've been looking into restarting it as a telnet board, but haven't found a package I'd like to run yet). Cheers, Bryan Stanbridge (Sorcerer)."

Mike ProszkowRenegade
"I can't believe I found this listing. Just so happens that I was the Sysop of this board (aka Big Cheese). It actually began as the Midnite BBS, which was extraordinarily popular. Went I left for college (U of Michigan) in 1997, I changed the name to The Neveland BBS (or "TNL"). The rise of the 'net of course was the fall of the board. I do miss it a ton, and have the whole BBS (Front Door, Renegade and all of my doors) on a floppy disk and even backed up to a CD now. Good times." - Mike Proszkow
