"One of Central Texas' first and longest-running Bulletin Board Systems, KE was extremely popular as one of the few systems in the 512 AC, a BBS where Freedom of Speech was *guaranteed*. It was also one of the first local BBS to feature a WWIVNet-Usenet gateway -- before Cat Yronwode caused the UTEXAS gateway to be shut down! -- and was a popular spot for young and old alike to speak their minds without retribution from a power-tripping sysop. KE ran exactly ten years, from 11/1/86 to 11/1/96, with OM shutting down the system in order to dedicate his BBS lines to Internet access for his business. Within two years most BBS in Central Texas were also gone, so KE went out at the top of its game!" - Bob Mosley

"Thanks for keeping this list. I read about your documentary and I'm anxious to see it. I ran a GT-Powercomm BBS back in my 'larval stage' in computers. I learned an awful lot about technology, telecom, e-mail and customer service during the time I ran the board. It brought back a lot of fond memories for me seeing this listed." - Greg Bassett

Austin Yacht Club (AYC)
(1983-1991)
SysOp: James T. Kirk (JTK) Co-SysOps: Tremain and Byte Myte
"The Austin Yacht Club was one of the first theme-oriented boards. It went up in Austin, Texas on Halloween of 1983 after a year-long stint as 'The Black Cloud' BBS (part of a network of 'elemental' BBSes that never went anywhere). The AYC included the following features: * Message Bases that were unlocked as the user's contribution escalated (as noted and granted by the SysOp and Co-SysOp). * A full D&D-type 100 x 100 room/level dungeon where users could fight other users who had logged off in a certain location - or monsters or whatenot. * A full casino (blackjack, roulettte, poker, baccarat, etc.) to earn money for the Dungeon. * A hacking game (which granted access to some of the more nefarious message bases for which the AYC was famous in certain circles). * Text files on the origin of computers, BBS-lore and various amusing standards. * Austin BBS list rigorously maintained for accuracy at the time. * Macros, text-wrap in the message bases and other innovations for the time. It was taken over by Shiva of SMOF in 1989 (the first sci-fi fan site) when the SysOp, JTK, moved out of the country. It permanently went down a year and 1/2 later after Shiva's house was hit by lightning and the Apple //e fried. The site had two main audiences: * people who were into conversation * people who were into hacking/cracking/piracy/phreaking/etc. The former group was not aware of the latter due to the access restrictions." - James T. Kirk
