Darrell BoeckPunterNet
"Ran 24/7, out of a bedroom in my parents house. I was just 18 years old when it went up. Ran on a Commodore 64, at first with a 300 baud modem, then 1200. It offered a message board, and a significant amount of shareware downloads. I love your site. Thanks for providing a place for this information. It was great seeing all these phone numbers that I had forgotten." - Darrell Boeck

BIG TOP, Big Top Games System
(1981-1986)
Neal PatrickHomegrown!
Run by Neal Patrick of the "414's" fame. The headquarters of the 414 until they were caught. Taken down and re-appeared as a "legit" BBS. Run on a TRS-80 Model III.

Neal Patrick writes "Hi, my name is Neal Patrick, so I know a fair amount (but remember less) about the Big Top system. I wrote the BBS software (lifted a lot of the code from a CP/M BBS system) by myself, since there was no s/w for a TRS-80 Model II (not III as someone else mentioned). I also had to write some assembler to handle the connects and disconnects (since the Model II didn't have PEEK and POKE to determine connect status). My favorite part of the BBS was "George, the Assistant SYSOP". He was ELIZA with a few of the phrases changed to fit the BBS better. He would show up for chats if I was not available. I remember those days when I had to enforce a 1 hour time limit on the BBS because people played games. That was a pain to code. Yes, there was a hidden sub-board for the hacker community, but it was only available if you were approved (and since the line was busy so much of the time, it wasn't used much). Nice to recall those old days! I still feel nostalgic when I hear a fax machine connect (it reminds me of the old dial-up modem connect sounds)."

(1989-1992)
Jeff NaujokHeavily modified Pyroto
"BlackStar Mountain started out as a standard pyroto board, but then I kept changing it and changing it. For a while it was really popular, but by 1992, the Internet started becoming more than just a joke, and usage plummeted. Still I have fond memories of those heady days as the Servant of TSOTL. Hmm. Maybe I should code a telnet based version...." - Jeff Naujok

"Pandemonium started as a simple Apple II AE line, then a Catfur Line breifly. Soon after we designed a custom BBS with online code exchangers, AE, Catfur, and some 30 message boards. It got support from First Class. It attracted some of the most brightest krackers and hackers. The board actaully grew into a distributed system with other BBS's using our software in a calling pool. After being forced shut down a couple times, it was resurrected as Pandemonium Amiga for about 3 years." - Boot Trax
