Rebecca Gaitonde
"This BBS was originally started on the Atari 800XL and eventually evolved through to the Atari ST-1040 and finally to the PC before closing down. It was founded as a way to get legal freeware for the Sysops sons and their school, and eventually integrated "other" software as a means of increasing traffic. Eventually there were 3 dedicated lines, and Ascii multi-player games, as well as network forums that ranged from tech help to Star Trek discussions. The Cookie Chef made many friends in her time as the sysop, and even had people flying in from different parts of the country just for a visit. Rebecca "The Cookie Chef" Gaitonde is deceased as of April 24 2008. (This is posted by her son Corey Gaitonde handle "K'rlokatau")"

Paul AllenCnet, Ribit
"First run on a Commodore 64 with two floppy drives and a 1200 baud modem running Cnet software and Ribit BBS (intermittently), then added two whopping SFD-1001 drives for a total of 2 megabytes or so of storage total...and upgraded to 2400 baud. Went through the stages of a Commodore 128 with the same storage. A few years after that stepped up to a Commodore Amiga and a 20MB hard drive along with a US Robotics 9600 baud modem....and of course the coup de gras was a 60MB hard drive. Woo hoo! Sadly the buffons at Commodore blew the mothership up and we were without a platform in the early 90's. Never did switch to the IBM platform, although we were tempted to. Man those old warez parties were fun :) Would love to hear from you old users still out there!" - Paul Allen

"Wow, what a blast from the past! Here is some updated info for you. I remember so many of the Sysops on the list from my area. Some fond recollections of my days running Total Access: * 2 computers in my bedroom - all running Trade Wars and other various "door" games. * 2 ~noisy~ hard drives chugging away and 2 beeping pc speakers in the middle of the night (after I'd gone to bed at 3am, that is) - followed by 2 snipped wires. * ANSI graphics - who hoo! Animations even. * Summer "member" parties. * Boxes of T-shirts for new members - yes, I still have 1 or two hanging around... * Scott and Tom picking up the bill for me - thanks guys! (it was a store front after all!) That led me to a career as a software engineer / web developer." - Chris Leger

"Wow. It is so great to see someone keeping a historical record of all the BBS in the area! Today's average internet user has no idea about the BBS world of the past! I wouldn't trade the years of running this BBS for the world. Mark and I had a lot of fun running the BBS and developing the HysteriaWare Software. Anyone rememeber the online games Q-DOG, Fowl Play, and Chain Reaction? Hard to believe that animated ANSI graphics were cutting edge technology! Great to see the names of some old online pals on this list. Thank you for everyone who made this time in the online world so memorable!" - Brian Tardiff

"Gamer's Guild BBS was run out of the Gamer's Guild retail game & hobby shop, certainly one of the most unique and popular gaming BBS's in central Massachusetts during the mid '90s. With 6 dial-up modems and 4 in-store terminals, as well as allowing telnet sessions from what was at the time an infant Internet, we stretched the capabilities of an Amiga 3000 far beyond that of which any mortal SysOp was capable!"

"Proving Grounds was a BBS program that doubled as an online RPG. In addition to that, the Sysop ran a game called "Battle for North America (later "Battle for New England") that was a play by mail game involving ~20 people that he spent 8 hours a day updating in a massive spreadsheet. I spent many hours on this board :)" - The Warlord

"I was the SYSOP and just happened to Google "Bushido BBS" and arrived here much to my surprise. Ran this in the office of my roller skating rink. And, no, I did not spend 8 hours a day on it! Running BNA was great fun. One of the original players is now a game programmer and we are talking about bringing back an automated version of the game. " - The Shogun

"For many years this BBS acted as the email gateway between Fidonet and the Internet for Eastern Massachusetts. Each night the system would pickup and drop off messages on both networks. This was at a time when there was no Internet email access for people who were not part of a university or large corporation. I managed to talk my way into getting access to a machine at Harvard University in the medical department. I had no prior connection with Harvard and I'm sure that the person who set up the account must have exceeded their authority. I continued the service until it was possible for the average person to get internet email through other sources and Fidonet had outlived its usefulness." - Ken Levitt

"1983: Nite-Lite B.B.S. goes on the air. (Was it running A.M.I.S. ?) It is called "Nite-Lite" because the computer monitor casts an eerie glow about the room. 1984: Paul Swanson writes his own BBS hosting software for the ATARI 6502 8-bit computer. He names it "Nite-Lite". The Nite-Lite BBS hosting software goes on to be the most successful commercial BBS software ever written for the ATARI 6502 8-bit computer. 1989: Nite-Lite BBS puts in a second line at 508-663-2885. (MichTron boards eventually take the place of all of the ATARI Nite-Lite boards.)" - Winston Smith

"Hah, I loved that. I learned so much from doing that BBS. Sad to put it to bed in my attic. It was killed by the internet, not so much that everybody went to the internet, but that I found it myself one day. after that, the board ran by itself for about 6 months, then when I turned the monitor on one day i found it just sitting there with a hard drive error. 1 of the hard drives crashed and I just didn't have the time to fix it then. I put the whole thing up in the attic for my child to fix whenever she becomes computer savvy in about 15 years perhaps. I miss it, as well as many of the people that frequented it as they see me on the street." - Andrue Carr

"The BBS gained a lot of success from its online games. It was one of the larger gaming BBSes in the area. When the board started, the SysOp (me) was 13 years old and the majority of the users were significantly older. By the time the board shut down (shortly before I went to college), the majority of the users were teenagers. It felt like this board was around for a transition in the general age of the BBS user." - Steve Lesser

Sysop: STeve RiderFoReM ST
"FNET Node #204 (FoReM network) It was a Worcester-area BBS. Run by a guy named Steve Rider (who called himself STeve Rider because he used Atari ST's). Steve, at some point, became the person responsible for selling FoReM ST (after the author, Matt Singer, stopped wanting to support it, I think). Full Moon had decent file areas and games. I think I used to play tradewar-type games on here (forgot what they were called). I'm pretty sure one of them was written by a guy from Northboro named Jon Radoff (who ran Middle Earth in Northboro, wrote some Amiga BBS software, and later started NovaLink)." - Ford Prefect

Bob Mckeegan, Sysop: Bob McKeeganTBBS on Kaypro in early days, FoReM PC on 386 later
"Minority BBS - Sysop is listed correctly (Bob McKeegan, aka Delay). I was one of the co-sysops some time in the early 90's. The first version of the BBS was running on a Kaypro CP/M machine. I'm pretty sure that early software was TBBS (The Bread Board System). Some time in the early 90's, he upgraded to a 386 (when they cost a fortune). Eventually he settled on FoReM PC for the BBS software, running under DesqView for multitasking (so he could still use the PC for other stuff). I have copies of what are the files for some version of the FoReM incarnation of the BBS. Stuff like login screens, menus, etc. http://www.gweep.net/~prefect/retrocomputing/bbs/minority/ This would have been from 1989-1990 time frame probably. The files came from my Atari, and I was using that Tandy 1000EX for BBS'ing from early 1990 until I bought my first 286 PC in the spring of '90." - Prefect

"I was the sysop of the GweepNet BBS. It ran on a Convergent Miniframe running UNaXcess BBS software. The software stunk, but by the time we finished hacking stuff on top of it, it could read and post to usenet and play NetHack and all kinds of things...Steve Richardson (one-time roommate of the guy who ran Mithril Hall, although I forget his name) had ethernet in his dorm room at WPI and took over, got us the domain name, and so on. At that point, we moved the dialup BBS to a telnet-only shell machine and stopped giving out accounts to anyone who asked. And, as you can see, here we are five years later. www.gweep.net has some of the story as well." - Josh Brandt

"I was the SysOp for this BBS. Dial up was the only way to access to the BBS - it was via USRobotics Dual Standard / HST (big dollars back then). The BBS had had a large file area mostly from the Walnut Creek CD ROM OS/2 Software collections to which I subscribed. New disks came monthly. The CDs were made available via CD-ROM changer connected to a 386/DX2 66Mhz based PC. The BBS machine had a 400MB drive (again, big money) and 8M RAM, if I recall the time frame correctly. LanTastic connected the BBS PC to the SysOp's PC. There weren't a lot of callers, only several a day really, but they came from all over. OS/2 files were not widely available, so my BBS was a great source as the collection was as complete as any other and constantly updated. My interest in OS/2 (apparently for everyone else too) eventually waned and the BBS went away. It was an enjoyable, though brief ride." - Steve Consolmagno

"I started this little one line BBS on my old 286 in my bedroom. It was a place for friends to gather and write stories, poetry, and other pieces of collaborative fiction. I ran it for my last 3 years of high school before heading to college in Boston in 1993. It's kind of trippy to find information on it still kicking around the net today. It mainly catered to writing and bulletin boards. I didn't have any games and files were mostly just text backups of stories and other pieces. I miss that old board sometimes!" - Cheryl Dowling (Rya Nightshade)

"The Z opened in 1996 running VBBS, however, I later re-did the BBS in iniquity. It tended to cater to hackers and programmers. At times The Z was very busy, other times virtually no one called. I closed the BBS when I went off to WPI for college. I've been wanting to re-open it as a telnet board, but I do not have time at the moment. When I closed it, I only knew of one other operational board in the area, although the list seems to show some dinosaurs still remaining." - Andrew Rondeau

The Gater Bowl
(1982-1988)
Mitch CohenTRS-80 Color Computer (custom software)
"The Gater Bowl BBS was was run on a TRS-80 Color Computer (original revision E) with 32K RAM, two (later four) DEC RX-180 floppy drives, and a Novation CAT 300 baud auto-answer modem. The software was based on something I bought, but I don't remember the name, and was heavily customized. It was written in BASIC. I ran it in my parents' basement while in High School starting in 1982 if memory serves. In the fall of 1985 I started college and left the BBS running at home, but simultaneously ran a second copy from my freshman dorm room (Clark University in Worcester, MA). That one had a fancy 1200 baud modem. The college changed their phone system for my sophomore year and I could no longer get a second phone line, so that ended the second setup. Eventually running the home BBS remotely became a hassle, and I started playing with the BitNet connection at school, so the Gater Bowl was retired in late 1987 or early 1988. The hardware and disks are now in my basement and eventually I'll see if it all still boots. I still occasionally hear from former users. What a fun experience. The name The Gater Bowl came from the message ending "Later Gater" used initially by a high school friend, Bart, which caught on. When I see the football "Gator Bowl" game written out I still think THEY spell it wrong! The BBS was one of two BBS's run by members of the Framingham Color Computer Club. I don't remember the other's name or number, but if I can dig it up I'll add its info. One interesting story was as I was setting it up, and only one friend had the number, some random person dialed into it. Chatting with him I learned he was from far away (another state) and he'd come across the BBS while war-dialing. A very strange experience, the first stranger visiting the system. Another was being found by the local newspaper, the Middlesex News, and was interviewed for a story on BBS's and hacking (when hacking just started to be a big deal). The title of the story, "Enter the World of the Hacker." I was 16 at the time. I was considered a "good hacker." The Middlesex News later ran their own BBS. Since the BBS only had one line (as most did back then) the only interactive chatting was done between the dialup user and myself. I had friends visit all the time and we'd sit in the basement for hours chatting with whoever was there at the time. What fun. The BBS had no private messages (other than to the Sysop) - everything was public. It held, if I remember right, 30 messages total. One text file upload I remember well was a large Ferrari picture, which I printed on my Okidata microline 92 and had above the desk." - Mitch Cohen

"Popular BBS run throughout 2nd half of 80's. First on a c-64 then on a C-128 running different versions of C-Net. We had a few hundred users, held several successfull 'real world' get togethers. I can honestly say running this BBS through my late teens and early 20's changed my life :)" - Scott Creesy
