Wills Dungeon
(1994-1995)
EvilVBBS
"Wills Dungeon had, at it's peak, 30+ online games (doors) running.

"It was run by Will, a 14-15 year old, out of his parents basement, for a little over a year; the phone line and hardware were funded by a 2 mile long news paper delivery route for the Daily Gleaner.

"It had one phone line, and averaged one call per hour, though occasionally exceeded 40 calls a day.

"Wills Dungeon shared a messaging forum with GateWay (operated by Trevor Rivet), using the VNet technology that was part of VBBS. Every morning around 3am, Wills Dungeon would call GateWay and transfer email and forum messages destined for other VNet users. In this way you could send an email from Wills Dungeon (or GateWay) to anyone on the planet (provided they were hooked up to VNet).

"Some of the most popular games were Legend on the Red Dragon, Barren Realms Elite, and TradeWars 2000 (all registered).

"While not a warez site, Wills Dungeon distrubuted a lot of custom made applications written by Will, and some of the other younger programmers in the Fredericton area. Two of the more popular were 'VGADraw' and 'VSCRIPT'. A BBS member eventually added mouse support to VGADraw, which was kind of cool back then, making it an 'open source' collaboration. lol

"VGADraw was a bitmap drawing program, and VSSCRIPT was a vector based drawing program.

"One of the applications on the site got the BBS in to a bit of trouble with the local police. Will had written a program to create 'ANSI Bombs' and posted it on the BBS. Essentially, the program would let someone embeded character remapping in to an ANSI file/animation they had. In this way, you could remap the keyboard so that the key 'a' would go 'dir c:\'.

"Someone, we'll call him 'Bob', downloaded the program, and used to it to create bomb that would format the primary hard-disk. Bob was having trouble with someone else from school, and sent him this 'bomb'. Long story short, someones hard drive got formatted. The police got involved, and 'Bob' told them he used Wills program to create the 'bomb'. The police called Will and had a rather lengthy, but surprisingly nice, discussion with him about such things. The program came down shortly there after, with no hard feelings.

"The BBS eventually met it's demise once the Sysop got his drivers license." - Evil

"When i first started it, there were many BBS's around town. though, hey yeah I want to try it to. I was hooked, nothing like staying up all night drawing new ANSI graphics for your board =) .. Ran many multi-bbs door games, and joined FIDO net. LORD was the most popular door game, and was really great in multi-bbs gaming. In my opinion there is nothing that can compare to a bbs today. A bbs was more intimate, it was poeple from around your community calling in, you would get excited if someone from out of province/state happen to dial up your board. At the high point of things, late 1989, i had 5 lines going. In the end, I only kept one line going and slowly slowly the users dropped away. Then I decided to archive the whole bbs on cd-rom and pack it away." - Face

"I see that I'm listed twice. I suspect it's because of the Phone Numbers; I could have been listed 6 times because I had 6 phone lines coming into the house, and grew to 600 members, in the early 90's. I had a donation of a Pioneer 6 pack (6 cd's) and had tens of thousands of shareware files online for downloads, I can't rememebr how many Online games we had, L.O.R.D was one of the most popular, it was a great time, and I really enjoyed it.... working with Desqview to do multi tasking hehehe, and Qemm for memory managment, a friend of mine would cut traces on internal modems and go get other IRQ's before that was standard option. As far as I know I was the first in the Province to get a 14,400 baud modem it cost me $1,200... ouf ... I could go on but I won't :)" - Louis Arseneau

"Hi... This is a great record of the BBS systems... A wonderful, wonderful job... I ran RBBS 8:990/801 for the first ~24 months in 1992.... then joined fidonet as 1:255/28, I have maintained both addreses to this date, I am sure family net may have got zone 8, but can't use the RBBS numbers, cos a few, still use them... Neat stuff.... I ran RBBS with the cdor addons and Binkleyterm until almost 1998, changed to maximus with binkleyterm and in 2001 changed to Synchronet... I had to maintain an old 486 machine way past its time to continue to run that dos stuff we use to call fossil drivers Fido Opus Seadog Standard Interface Level.... Take care and thankyou.. I looked at various old nodelists... wow... I have shared this website with others.. I did not know.... Thanks again." - Terry Davies
