Bruce Webbe, Phoenix (aka: Bruce Webbe)Virtual BBS
"Started in 1987 running on an Atari 1200xl, upgraded there after to a modified 130xe with 1mb of ram (wow!) and an 80mb hard drive. (ooooo... aahhh...) Eventually it evolved to running on a PC using Virtual BBS, under OS/2, then DOS, then Windows95. Still have all the hardware, software, etc all boxed away in the garage somewhere. It was fun! Learned alot, met alot of neat people! [Before there was WWW, there was BBS]" - Bruce Webbe

Allen WoolleyWildcat
"Went from 1 to 3 lines over the years under DESQview. I also ran Firth of Fifth in the 702 Las Vegas, NV via a Co-Sysop (Rick Cross). Developed early .QWK packed mail relaying (poor man's FIDOnet :) to toss mail between Las Vegas and Santa Clara. I eventually ended up on WildNet using Tomcat for Wildcat to automate the mail transfer. Was all good until TCP/IP killed the scene for all but the museum curator folks." - Allen Woollley

Willis Wong (...Bogey)Apple Net
"I was 15 when I started this BBS on an Apple //e. It had a pair of 128k Floppy drives (5.25") and I used a software tweak to get another 64k out of the 80-column card to use as a ramdisk. The modem was a 300 baud Zoom modem. The Apple Net software was purchased through mail order and I was always making modifications to the Basic code. We had a handful of regular callers and even a get-together (gtg). It was quite a trip to meet the faces behind the names. We were so no-budget that I had to beg my older sister to allow me to use her phone line for people to call in. Because of this, she became "co-sysop"." - Willis Wong

"I'm the original system operator. Ahh, the good ol' days. My modified Networks II software became the backbone of the re-write that was used for the Dark Side, and I actually did the first QuickScan implementation on Split Infinity, in AppleSoft Basic using a modified Networks II. If you recall, Split Infinity was one of the first BBS's to be raided by the FBI for illegally passing out freaking and hacking information." - Alexander of Atlantis

Robert Field, Karen Marquardt, Joyce DeLeonardo, Jean SwenkDLX
"This BBS system was in operation from 1986 to 1995, until PLink and AOL basically destroyed the market. It was essentially a dating bbs, and we held social parties on a monthly basis. More than 15,000 people passed through this system and more than 25 couples ended up marrying as a result of their meeting on this system, including myself (Bob Field and my wife Joyce (Deleonardo). The system was shut down in 1995. The Dating Tree had outlier forwarder systems that covered the entire Greater SF Bay area, from Santa Rosa on the north, to Morgan Hill on the south, to Pacifica on the West and Livermore on the East. It was the subject of at least one Master's Thesis and many articles and even one major radio station did a face-to-face interview with the Sysops, because it was the largest and most active in the area at that time. Later, other bbs system sprang up and became larger." - Robert Field

Hacker Heaven
(1987-2001)
Mark Pickerill, Mark D. Pickerill, Robert CabralSpitfire
"Ran on a Pro-Log STD bus industrial computer system. Catered to computer programmers of most microcomputers.

As the welcome screen read "No games, no gee-whiz utilities".

Although it was a MS-DOS based system, the operating philosophy was similar to the RCPM systems, very tech oriented. Was a member of PRACSA (Public Remote Access Computer Standards Association) for the short number of years that orginization existed (Started by Irv Hoff and others). The word "standards" was changed to "sysop's" in the last year or so of the orginization's history.

I still have the "HH.COM" that was included in MS-DOS and CP/M-80 archives that, when run, advertised the BBS. It was (is) the same physical binary file, it runs under both MS-DOS and CP/M without modification!

It started as a 1200 baud system, then became a 2400 baud system, and was a 14.4K baud system before the end. Unlike many other systems, Hacker Heaven did not dis-allow 300 baud call-ins - 300 bauders were welcome!

It was shut down when the sysop changed employers as it was sponsered by the now defunct Pro-Log corporation." - Mark D. Pickerill

"The BBS continued to serve the community under the Sysop - Robert Cabral. The BBS continued to operate until 2001. Motorola Inc. aquired Pro-Log Corp. and continued to support this system, with internet access." - Robert Cabral

"Steel Beach orginally was a Renegade BBS, then switched to Remote Access to better handle Fido Mail( although I tried quite a few BBS software packages) was the first fido node in its own local calling area, Pulling mail from Nightlog, the largest ( Nightlog turned into redshift internet services ) It also had 3 small local echo mail type networks. We also had many regsitered doors ( our biggest draw ). Steel beach ran on a old IBM PC 8mhz, 512K of ram and 2 20meg MFM hardrives and a US robotics 28.8 modem." - Ron Pugh

The Dark Earth
Cobalt-60 (Leo LeBarre)
"Back in the early 80s (when I was around 12-15, I ran a board (Pirate, definitely) called The Dark Earth, 408-429-8002 . My handle was Cobalt-60. I took this handle in 1983, so I am by far the most original of the later imitators. I was involved with various phreak/crack groups, and wrote quite a few anarchy files in my spare time. Most were, lamentably, unsigned, because I got nervous, but there are still some out there with my original name on them. Later on I ended up hanging out with Sam Brown, who was, as far as I am concerned, one of the first true internet pioneers. We used to spend a lot of time on arp a net and just basically trying to figureout how ot do distributed computing by leapfrogging local BBSes which were local, until a packet eventually made it's way to it's destination. It worked pretty well. (I know nothing of MCI access codes, however. J) Anyway, I found myself reminiscing, and thought I would drop a line, and demand recognition OR WE'LL CRUSH YOUR SKULL!! K" - Leo LeBarre (Cobalt-60), The Dark Earth

"I'm Philip Ruiz. I was the Sysop for That BBS IN Hollister. Your list currently lists it as being in Walnut Creek But It was In Hollister. Hollister used to be in the 408 Area code before switching to 831. Building and running that bulletin board was A wonderful experience. I learned a lot about computers and made a lot of friends. What outrageous phone bills we had back then! I am not now, nor was I then able to write code but I can remember many hours spent sweating over command line programs. Remember setting up "doors" for online games, or setting up new transfer protocols like zmodem, jmodem, ymodem, etc? I don't know if most people realize what a labor of love it was to run a bbs. We spent many hours building and maintaining them and most of us never asked for a dime in contributions. Oh well, I'm rambling. Later." - Philip Ruiz

"It was in a professors house at Monterey Naval Postgraduate School, and he didn't like us to come over and run the system, so we did it all via "remote". Even back when we switched from *.ARC compression to *.ZIP compressions (remember those compression wars?) we had to use the conversion utility over the phone lines remotely via command line. Very much a labor of love. All back when a word processor program would fit on a 1.2MB 5-1/4" floppy. Remember ZenWord? And all those ASCII animation screens? Ah... the good old days." - Jim Plosay

The Tropical BBS
(1991)
Ron RauchPCBoard
"I was the sysop for "Tropical BBS" @ (408) 732-1814. I started it when I was 14 years old, in 1987. I used an IBM XT with a 10 meg. hard drive. I had a huge inventory of downloads and it seemed like no one would ever use up so much space! Until I was getting calls from all over the world.....I was advertised around the globe by posting messages on other BBS'."

"It seemed for a very long time that there would always be someone on my machine - it only had the one line attached to it. After a while, it became tough to "compete" with other BBS' that had installed multiple nodes, allowing for capability of multiplayer games."

"Eventually, the machine broke because of some kind of "line zap", and I always suspected it was a sysop of another BBS - actually "Byte Bandits' Sam Brown". He was kind of the bandit that everyone in the sysop community used to complain about. At 14, I was the youngest guy who attended local sysop meetings and it meant alot to me to be a part of that." - Ron Rauch

Lynn CadwalladerSpitfire, PC-Board
"I'm so pleased I made history. :) Anyway, I wanted to add my 2 cents, as it were. I started the BBS in Issaquah, Washington, just to see if I could do it. My neighbor ran a BBS, software was PC Board. I was his CoSysOp for a short time. Moved to Sunnyvale, California in 1990 and continued to improve the board. Eventually got to know more computer people that helped and guided me. I tried Spitfire BBS software, but bought PC Board software. My only computer was a 286 - no multitasking and no swapping. One line. At one point I did install DoubleDOS and played a game on the other split of DOS, but the board suffered terribly. The callers that knew me kidded me about it. At one point I was carrying 5 nets. When I first starting relaying mail, I stayed awake all nite watching the callers then watching the mail event. I was very sad when I finally turned off the modem because the callers had gone to the Internet. It was all so much fun, so many wonderful people, and a very unique world that is probably gone forever." - Lynn Cadwallader

"I started the mushrooom in 1981 with an acoustic modem- ppl had to call the #, let it ring once and call back and if i anyone was home, we'd connect them. After a while, we connected the telephones ringing-hammer, which was supposed to hit the bell to ring, to a switch which would automatically send command thru the joystick port (Serial) and trigger the AT command to my Hayes modem to pick-up the phone and connect.. A Man named Jeff Bell helped me. This was 1st ran on a 16k Atari 400 until we upgraded to a 48k Atari 800." - Jesse

Joe Cram, Michelle ForgetSTS (Synergy Teleconferencing System), gtalk, majorbbs
"Major, major part of my youth. I can trace back nearly every friend I have to Synerchat, in one way or another- either people I met there, or people I met through them... amazing loyalty still existed even years after the original sysop got fed up and took it down. A year or two ago, a group of us somehow got the idea in our head to find a version of gtalk and put it up again (still there: 'telnet synerchat.com'). It was scary how connected we all still were. Within 15 minutes of going live (actually went live early for testing), there were two or three dozen original members clamoring for an account... some really successfull parties commemorated the event. The original STS system was based on 3 digit user numbers, and I'll be damned if many of us not only remember our own numbers, but a large handful of close friends(or enemies) as well. Many of us consider our number to be a clear and indelible identifier, and will find ourselves using it when an arbitrary number is called for. There are countless throw-away login/password combinations out there that contain some variation on '145', and more than a few servers that listen on port 8145." - P. Gillan

"I just got done talking to Michelle, who is still with Joe. I still remember my 3-digit user number, as well as numerous others. 666 will always have a special meaning to me. >:) As will 237." -M. Montgomery (Lithium)

CHALKBOARD, The Chalkboard
(1987)
Robert WrightGBBS
"This BBS was in San Jose at Morrill Middle School. The Chalkboard started out as a straight GBBS but later it became modified to link with FrEdMail, a store and forward Fido-like system for students and teachers developed by Fred Rogers of Bonita, California. In 1990 The Chalkboard initated a project called Notes In A Bottle which was a call for student penpals over Usenet. Responses came from as far away as Italy, Japan and The Soviet Union. The Chalkboard was one of the first three school BBS systems in Northern California. It was on the cutting edge of telecommunication education during the late 80's and early 90's." - Robert Wright

"Originally I and a High School friend wrote it in TurboPascal 3.0. It ran on an IBM XT with a 20MB hard drive and 512KB of memory. Its 25 message boards were organized under five categories, and each message board had a co-sysop, which could be assigned by me. Each co-sysop had complete sysop-like control over the contents of their sub-board, which greatly reduced the administrative load on me. In 1990 it was upgraded to a PC-AT 12MHz 286 system with 4MB of RAM and an 80MB hard drive so I could upgrade the message boards to a 500-message capacity apiece. It was also upgraded to TurboPascal 6 at this time. It had a fun and innovative wander-in-the-wilderness game, called Dangerous Realm, which was based loosly on Dungeons and Dragons." - TTK Ciar
