The Time Warp
(1994-1995)
Doug ClarkWWIV
Wow - never expected to see it here. What a trip. Interesting facts: * This BBS ran in my teenage bedroom on our second phone line that I snaked around the outside of the house without my parents knowing. * I had the wrong power adapter for the 19200 baud modem which caused it to run hot - so I took the cover off and hung it out the window to keep it cool. * At one point the BBS had over 30 online games, 12 download protocols, and four message networks including WWIVnet. * Wayne Bell (the author of WWIV) is the reason I learned to program in C at a young age. After starting to hack on WWIV, I never went back to PASCAL. The Time Warp enjoyed a brief revival in 1998 during my college years when I found that my NCD 16e X-Terminal would connect telnets to the administrative port through to it's serial port. I had a linux box on SLIP to the campus network at the time so... I forwarded ports on the campus host to my linux box, created a linux login that would invisibly launch a hacked telnet to the X-terminal, which patched through to a 386 with 20MB of memory running OS/2 Warp and WWIV. WWIV was hacked to accept any character as a modem connection. Later I added a second node (thanks to OS/2 and the second serial port) through another PC. Multi-node WWIV! I posted a few flyers and before I knew it, strange people were logging in through my convoluted setup. It was short lived but fun." - Doug Clark

Brian CrewsHermes II
"This was one of a handful of early Macintosh based BBS' in the bay area. CPU Hardware was generally based upon a Macintosh LC II and later a Macintosh LC III. Our modems were ordered from the US Robotics SysOp program. We ran dual US Robotics Courier class 56k modems, flash ROM upgradable. I wired the extra phone line from the drop box to the bedroom with a staple gun and alot of cord tracing along the roof line, dropping from the attic, into the closet, through the wall, and terminating into a standard phone jack. Software was based upon Hermes II. We tried to keep the software running off of a memory disk to speed access, but frequently reverted to hard drive. Thanks to all the users who stopped by. If you have any thoughts or comments ask to have them appended to this description." - Brian Crews

"One of the few systems with an internet news feed/email. addressed with woodowl!theblock!username@llnl.gov."

"What began as a single BBS in 1986 (The Jester's Realm), expanded to 3 unique BBSs by 1988. The systems featured games, chat, text files and downloads. They also had local and shared forums and e-mail that were networked by nightly dumps between the 3 systems, using the ImagiNET network created especially for these 3 BBSs. ImagiNET eventually fed other local systems. This network of BBSs was also uniquely connected to the Internet, providing e-mail and news feeds through a hub at LLNL." - Diana

"This BBS started out in the late 80's early 90's as The MicroLine BBS. After that it enjoyed other names such as The Klone Xone, BARGLE, and more. It was a constant evolution that pissed most people off. It is still running to this date under Permanent Waves (bbs.permethius.com) I took a year or two off in the mid-90's but have been back in the same on again-off again fashion ever since. The BBS was/is located in the East (S.F.)Bay Area city of Concord and has the same dialup number (925) Which will be back online soon. I ran just about every BBS software created and even tried to make a few of my own. My BBS was not known for having a large user base, due to my love of expermenting with different BBS software packages."

"At one time this BBS had as many as 15 lines. It was hosted on an Amiga 3000. It was a chat/message/file up/download BBS. They also had an internet email feed. Later on they were able to do telnet and ftp, but not at any great speeds since they were limited by dial up speeds." - SargenW

"I ran this board while I was in the middle of high school. I can't remember the exact years but probably 1993-1995. It normally had about 50 registered users of which maybe about a dozen would call regularly. I took it down after a bit and put it back up as FPS2 but never drew ansi so it remained FPS. Before it went down, I had LoRD and Tradewars 2002 running. I had also made a few real life friends from running the board and met a few other people. I still own the 486dlc/33 and 486dx/2 66 that it ran on. The upgrade to the Intel processor cost $250 for the CPU alone. Today the computer hardware has virtually no value at all and I still have it in parts in a drawer at home and believe it will still work. This board used a 14.4 baud Zoltrix internal ISA modem." - Ferrari

"I was 13 when I began the 5:30 Departure. Now, 15 years later - I feel like I was a part of the internet in it's infancy. I used to run Tabby with Hermes on my Macintosh. Then, I was a die hard Mac fan, but have since switched to PC. I remember getting the sysop deal through USRobotics - that 14.4k was the ferrari back then, and it was such a steal too at only $600! I'm now a die hard programmer and have since had the oppurtunity to be a sys admin at a few companies, both volunteer and otherwise. Thank you all who supported my generation back then. At such a young age - I never envisioned the power of such humble beginnings. I want to spend a special thanks to Euborn Chiu, Thomas Edrington (sysop of The Other Side), and Mike Folkes (my guru back then). My mentor - Bill McCauley who ran the Records Dept. deserves many congratulations at the success of his bbs and the strength of his character. Thank you all." - Andrew Cohen

Young&Gardner, Randy YoungAuntie, Auntie BBS
"This started out on an old XT, running DOS and a single node, 2400 bps Hayes modem. Through a number of upgrades it ended up a multi-node system (510-833-7274 was the second line) with OS/2 as the OS, still running Auntie-BBS software and one Hayes 28000 bps modem and one USR 28000 bps modem. This was one of the first systems to over Zmodem for file transfers. My site was the first new system running Auntie, after I had convinced Wes Meier to let others run his home brew BBS software. Mostly a technical system, very few games on the board. Many utilities which I did reviews on and had those posted in a bulletin you could read from the main menu page. I ran it until I retired from Pacific Bell and moved to Olympia, WA in October of 1997. The old system still resides on my old 486 and I boot it up occasionally just to bring back memories." - Randy Young

"I was 12 years old when i started running the bbs out of my room on a 286 10mhz machine with a 20 meg hardrive running VBBS on a 14.4 modem. I made many modifications to the source code (written in virtual basic) and ran MANY online games (like, 50 or something). The BBS eventually shut down because I grew up a bit and didn't have time to keep it running smoothly." - Eryk Bateman

Exodus BBS
(1995-1997)
fuzzRenegade
"Single-node board Exodus BBS began life as a way for local friends (who were generally too young to drive) to easily communicate. Its most celebrated feature was an extremely active message board, which on two occasions produced over 1100 messages in one day. Sysop was fuzz, a teenager with a phone line to waste. Co-sysops were Jethrow Q and *8), who acted as moderators of boards and users, respectively. Excellent ANSI art was provided by a teen from Fremont, and sysop edits of the regular features provided a truly unique BBS experience. Toward the end of its days it became something of a game level exchange -- the most meaningful files were things like Doom PWADs, QuakeC, and other similar mods. Shut down in 1997 after the responsibility of taking care of a BBS became too much for the sysops, who were all on their way to college." - Fuzz

Max Baker (Sir Real)WWIV , WWIV421A, WWIV - Highly Modded
"I ran this board from a mishmash of home-made computers and leftover parts from the ages of 13-17. The board started w/ a 386-DX40 and a 14.4k modem and ended up running NetWare Light and Desqview over a coax network to a variety of cobbled up machines and my pride and joy : an external Practical Peripherals 28.8 LCD modem. I once bought a 500Mb drive for $1/MB ! I still have the board running on a big full-tower machine in the closet that I never turn on.

The board was a hub for many local boards on a variety of Networks such as WWIVNet, ICENet, WWIVLink, WarpNet and others. I helped start many local boards, setting people up with the WWIV source code and a C compiler and showing them how to 'mod' it, and then having them network to me. At peak usage The Warped had over 400 users, at least half of which were active. At the ripe age of 16 I called up the cable company and got rights to run a 5-pair through their conduit and then had the phone company drop me a few more lines. A second phone line was added (510-906-WARP) for users who donated and for network traffic when the main line was 95% busy and would register 60+ calls a day." - Max Baker (Sir Real)
