Bob Kovach (First), Tim Spofford (Second), Rich Gorin (Third)QuickBBS, RemoteAccess, Fido, Opus, RA
"Bob Kovach founded Recovery BBS in 1986, running at possibly 2400. The Fidonet nodelist had around 5-600 entries at the time. It was one of the 2 or 3 first BBS's in the country dedicated to 12-step recovery, and some of the forums/echos/whatever that began in the early days of Recovery BBS are still active, with some of the same people, on the web. Early on, Bob ran two nodes under DESQview, on an AST 286, with a pair of USR 9600s. Throughout its history it ran USRs except for a brief period when I and alot of other sysops switched to Hayes in order to take advantage of Hayes getting 28.8 out the door first. I (Tim Spofford) took over from Bob in 1987 or '88, when his AIDS forced him to give it up (he died in 1989). After awhile I switched from Binkley/Opus to FrontDoor/QuickBBS, not because of their technical superiority (if any) but to keep it interesting. For the same reason I later switched to RemoteAccess. I ran Recovery BBS at several phone numbers in San Francisco, Marin County, and Richmond, Calif, with a tie line to San Francisco. It was never running on an Oakland as you have it listed, though I may have had an Oakland phone number at one point. Eventually, I burned out, turned Recovery over to Rich Gorin - as far as I know, the 3rd and last sysop - who ran it until the mid-90s. I continued to be in the nodelist as 1:125/99 but didn't run a public board. In 1991 I moved to Portland (503 a/c) and started Recovery Northwest, which you have listed, as 1:105/99, as tell as another BBS (also listed). I moved Recovery Northwest to Seattle (206 a/c)(also listed) in 1995 but became bored and took it down in 1995."

- Tim Spofford (http://spof.org tims@spof.org ex-Fidonet 1:105/9, 1:105/99, 1:125/99, 1:362/something (don't remember), plus various points off other systems from time to time.) "

The Angevin Empire
(1987-1988)
Aaron PrivenOpus
"Thanks for keeping this alive. Somebody somewhere is going to get a PhD out of it.

The Angevin Empire ran from Summer '87 to Summer '88. It was an 8Mhz 8088 clone running Opus. I was 17 years old, decided that instead of buying a car I'd buy a computer with my summer job money. It was in San Mateo, California (now area code 650). I was really into FidoNet echomail -- I could communicate all around the world! How many other people in my high school talked to people from Sweden regularly? Not too many. But I could. Now, of course, it's commonplace.

Angevin Empire was mostly an echomail board, didn't have a lot of users, only 1200 bps. It was a good way for me to get my own echomail feed and read news locally." - Aaron Priven

Basically it was an Apple ][ hacker/phreaker BBS, was mentioned on the Spy Hunter crack screen for apple ][, and became immensely popular. I was getting over 150 calls per day when running off of two floppy drives, and it got worse when I added a 10 meg sider, so it eventually went private. - Chris Stone

Was in 510 after 1991 due to the SF Bay Area area code split." - The Black Avenger

"Started with a TRS-80 and a 5 MB external HD, later two 5 MB external HD's, all running TBBS. Then jumped to an Intel clone PC (egads, I forget the brand, but will surely remember in two weeks or so) with 20MB of storage. Will died sometime around 1990, while undergoing heart bypass surgery. Great guy, good users, and fantastic software (TBBS, that is)." - Abuzavi

"SYSOP looked like Ernest Hemingway. Was part of a small network of boards in San Rafael to grow out of Marin-80, and to federate message boards. Machines would, in sequence, push data around during the night. Forget the software -- wasn't FIDO, that much I know. EBBS, I think. Anyway, Stonehenge kicked off when John got pissed that he couldn't get on to Marin-80 when he wanted, so he opened his own. Little to no files (unlike Marin-80), but gobs of message boards." - Abuzavi

"Some historical content is now up at earthritebbs.org. The first system ran on an Ampro Little Board with CP/M and ZCPR3 with a 1200 baud modem and 2 floppy drives. Initially the software was BYE5 and RBBS, but RBBS took too long to login when the user list got over 30 names, so it was switched to PBBS and a 6 meg hard drive added in 1986. The BBS was hit by a trasher in 1989 who poisoned the user interaction and was briefly resurrected with Wildcat! on a PC-XT." - Robin McCain

"Hi, I just found your list on the web. I ran the Quasatron BBS for about four years. I have all the old files stored and if you like i can look them up and give you any statistics about the system you like. It ran on on 2 386sx 16 MHz systems and had 150 megs of disk space. It had two dial up lines and used Microcom Ax9624c modems that would do 9600 baud if connected to another microcom ax9624c. I ran it as a hobby and never charged for access. that was the reson i wound up shutting it down, lack of funds to keep it up. I was never linked into FIDOnet or any other link service and my message base was never very busy. It was a lot of fun though while it lasted." - Ken Mazie

"I was the owner/operator/sysop for "the MIDI-Exchange BBS, P.O. Box 640608, San Francisco, CA, 415-771-1788" I think I started the BBS about 1986 and ran it until about 1994 when HTML certainly had taken over. I don't remember the first software I started with, but was using "WWIV" for a long time and then "Excaliber" near the end. I actually have a .zip file of the BBS with all the messages 'n files still if you want a copy let me know, I'll dig it out of my back-ups. When I ran the BBS I was living on Russian Hill in San Francisco. There is a write up in book on MIDI . I have that book packed away here . I forget the name." - Walt Perko

"Hi. I found your entry for my old BBS whilst Googling myself. I don't know where you found my old info, but I was impressed! I don't think I could have told you my old BBSs lifespan myself if asked - it's been a while. Anyway, thought I'd drop you a note about the origin of my BBSs name. Back in the late 80's there were a number of offshoot SIGs (Special Interest Groups) spawned by any other number of computer clubs, BBSs, GEnie forums etc. But around that time, some company or organization (I wish I could remember who it was - maybe your sleuths can dig it out) was claiming exclusive trademark rights to the term "SIG" and was threatening to sue anybody else using it. Being a rather-younger curmudgeon, I got all outraged and thought "f 'em - let's call their bluff", so when naming my new BBS I figured I'd use the term *twice* to see if they'd take the bait and tussle. Never heard a peep. Dammit. It would have been a fun fight. For the record, "SIGSIG" stood for "Switz's Information Gathering Special Interest Group". But in my mind, it simply stood for "f*** you". And that's the poop on that." - Jim Switz
