"We had the first BBS in Tacoma and ran for 19 years. At one point we had 16 lines (14 Tacoma and 2 Seattle). We had a satellite feed for Fidonet mail and newsgroups. Was pretty cool for its time. Nice to see that somone has taken the time to compile this piece of history. Keep up the good work Jason." - Dick Fairchild
