"Opus BBS was part of the OPUS network. Message boards were uploaded each night and people could send messages but had to wait 24 to 48 hours for responce. This was an early version of todays message boards. Private messages could be sent but did not become e-mail until much later. OPUS had user groups who traveled and met to work out new ideas and create new groups. Redeye BBS was apart of a group from Shreveport, La. I made the trip regularly. Prior to Redeye BBS I ran a BBS that was hosted on a Radio Shack TRS 80 and an accoustic modem. Users would call and ask to be logged in. Floppies had to be changed depending on the users requests. 300bps accoustic modem and a few basic files. Back then it was high tech." - Ralph Randall

Cooke MooreOPUS
"Our local Galveston and Texas City area code was Fodonet node 386, and is where the name 386 came from. After the release of the i386 from Intel, I had a few strange numbers show up on the caller ID as some people expected my site to be Intel related. Once a week, all the board operators in our area code would meet in the woods in Texas City for a bonfire and party. As a broke college student, it was a great hobby, requiring only a PC and dedicated phone line. I ran a 1 line system with some 200 registered members and about 20 regular users. OPUS linked to about a dozen door games that people could play. The favorite being Trade Wars 1000. At some point I switched from OPUS to the MAXIMUS BBS system. I also change my number to 409-740-2287 in 1990 and continued to operate until 1991 when I finished school." - Cooke Moore
