Debbie ClementTBBS
"I started in the BBS world, actually back in like 1982, with a Radio Shack Computer, called the Color Computer 2, with a 300 baud modem using software called the Best BBS. The best thing about the software, was it was written in basic, so I could tweek it. I thought was really cool when the 1200baud modem came out, spent a fortune on it as well, and I thought it really 'zoomed'. I later changed computers, and software (to the TBBS system) and at the same time, changed the name of the board to Firm Foundation, and ran that board using the phone number 402-592-4840, which I ran until April of 1990 in Omaha. After that, I moved to Brookfield, IL and ran the board from there with the same gear until August of 1993. From there, I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio and ran the board for another year or two. Thought that the internet was a joke (boy was I stupid about that!), but in the end the board became too much to run and too time consuming and I shut it down sometime in 1995 or 1996." - Debbie Clement

Lee David RimarRBBS
"I was the sysop of this BBS, which I had completely forgotten about until Jack Winslade reminded me of it a few years ago. Once JSW tickled my memory, I fondly recalled... It ran on a heavily modified Kaypro II computer (upgraded with a 10 MHz Z80, a 1 megabyte RAM disk, and quad-density 5.25" floppy drives). Hot stuff for the early 1980's. The original reason I set up the BBS was to get U.S.Robotics' "sysop deal" on their new, amazingly fast 1200 bps modem!" - Lee David Rimar
