Sean BreedenAll American BBS
"The Wall BBS was operated by Sean Breeden from 11PM to 8AM 7 days a week. It ran for about a year on a Commodore 64 with a 1200 baud modem. There was a small, but active, message board with a different disk full of software that rotated every 2-3 days. It had two 1541 floppy drives, so disk space was hard to come by. The BBS software was the "All American BBS" by Nick Smith." - Sean Breeden

ICEBBS, The Inner Circle
(1984-1999)
John Pinson - Iceman
"From within The Inner Circle, where the name came from, those from the early days of computing may remember. Started with a Commodore 64 on a SFD 1001 floppy drive in Southern California's Orange County. Built the system up to a C128 running with Ramlink and CMD 100 Meg Hard drive. Connected with other great boards of the area (Expanded Universe, Dudley's Place, Swampland, Purple Dragon among others and the CTUG of Orange County (Commodore Technical Users Group). Moved the system to Wilmington NC in 1991 and expanded more with a Super CPU, 16 MB Memory and 4 GB Hard Drive. (Remember, this was on an 8 bit computer that ran at 1 mhz, with 64k of internal memory standard). Had to move again in 1993 to Huntington WV where the system remains today, although it has not been actively used since 1999, but it is still my favorite computer. To my knowledge, The Inner Circle was the largest and fastest Commodore 8 bit BBS in the world. We had callers from around the world (I won't tel l you how they paid their LD bills though) Software, Started with the old All American BBS before hooking up with a fellow in Virginia who ran a BBS called the Dailey Exchange by the name of Greg Pfountz and was running Color 64 the next week. While running Color 64 in Orange County, we had a new user, a young kid that turned into a real programming whiz that went by the handle "The Ant" who was known to the rest of the world as Adam Fanello the author of Color 128 and then the best bbs program ever written for the 8 bit Commodores called Centipede. Over the years we met and conversed, had excursions and outings with many thousands of computer users. Today's internet is fun, but not as personal and interactive as those "good old days" when SysOp's and users connected with each other. To all of those that ever called, chatted or shared "warez" Thanks!" - John Pinson
