"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
