"Wow, Long time ago.. But to give some correct history if anyone even cares anymore.. I started off with a copy of wildcat.. moved my way up to teleguard .. great software btw .. 1 of the first to have Yankee Trader and TradeWars running on my BBS and a member of fidonet.. Use to call out to springfield to deliver our mail packs.. Run off my tandy 1000 moved into ATXT style system.. Great up on a timex programing in basic.. Hosting a BBS user group at a local motel at the bottom of butternut ski mountain.. Pretty much 1 of the first BBS around beside what's his name from LEE.. Wrote a few Turbo PASCAL online games which faked out users to login into my fake c: drive.. watch for hours while they typed format C:/s I write this because I looked up my name Brett Simms and found this info of way way too long ago.. Pretty much ran Teleguard software though. and alot of pirate software of sierra games.. My True BBS name was always Berkshires Best - Telguard running system.. but anyways.. paul ran his bbs way after I started good friend.. and the only person I belive that even had roots was some old dude from LEE.. oh and had good times with old GIF video's..Was young better then HBO late nite..lol Thanks again" - Brett Robert Simms

"I started the BBS as a night-time thing when my office wasn't running. It was meant to be private and only had a handful of users. However, the handful were influential in the world of software and bbs' of that era. One of the authors of a primary communications program released the latest version of his software with a glitch. He fixed the problem and rereleased it, including his phone list. My bbs was on there. I went from having 12 users to over a thousand in about a week. I moved the BBS from my office to my home and ended up having thousands of regular callers. In 1994, the bbs crashed for its final time. I had spent a fortune upgrading the hardware and hanging hard drives off of the machine for massive storage. To me, this was the end. It was a labor of love, but I wasn't going to spend another thousand dollars on new drives and upgrades. Some of the components (the old drives and such) are buried under tons of stuff in an attic closet. It was fun running the bbs at the time, but that era was quickly drawing to an end as the internet was developing. Now everyone has moved from bbs' and CompuServe to websites and it's a whole new adventure." - Tracy E. Carman

"I started this board back in high school on a Hyundai 286-10 with my brand new 1200 baud modem. Seeing as it only had a mono monitor, all the color screens/menus/etc. had to be done on an adjacent computer then transferred over. I would spend many nights chatting with the regular users, most of which I got to know very well in real life, having known such people as David Kuhns from Joe's Bar & Grill (for a while this bbs ran off a community system in the basement computer lab at Williston Northampton School, where students could log in as well), Communication Breakdown (run by Dor, better known as Purple Hair Freak Boy), and countless others. We were all one big happy dysfunctional family!" - Tim DiRocco

"As a long-time radio enthusiast the BBS's name "The Radio Room BBS" came easily. It started as a way for my friends consisting of scanner-buffs, CBers, Short Wave Listeners (SWL) and Amateur Radio operators to have a common base to communicate with one another. Soon thereafter the board's membership grew exponentially as word got out and both radio and non-radio people signed-on. With it's dedicated line busy most of the time, users wanted a way to better connect and keep the threads going. With that in mind, I contacted area SysOps, helped to start up a few new BBSs and launched RadioNet to connect these local BBSs allowing all our users more opportunity to connect and keep the conversations going. In kind, my board joined nets offered by other Sysops as each net offered a different take on things. Soon afterwords the board became a fidonet hub for Western Massachusetts. It was great fun while it lasted, but we could see that people were moving on to what would become...the internet." - Richard H. Wheeler
