"In almost 19 years of operation, this BBS handled over 753,000 calls, uncounted millions of pieces of echomail and was one of the first BBS systems anywhere with a live TCP/IP connection to the Internet. (As well as an earlier UUCP connection.) At it's peak, the BBS had 18 incoming lines and a subscriber base of thousands. The BBS was a fun and lively community with a little something for everyone." - Bill McCauley

"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

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
