Hal KrausePC Board
"SparkysCorner started the fall of 1989 as a way for a fire department to communicate. Hence the name of the fire dog "Sparky" started the BBS. At the peak running PC Board there were 17 shareware CD's, Fido net, Usenet News Groups, 3 phone lines, 7 PowerLan networked PCs, 3 gig of online hard drive storage. Almost every month Computer Shopper rated SparkysCorner as the largest BBS in Montana based on the number of shareware files online." - Hal Krause
