The Apple Hide-A-Way
(1989-1998)
Scott JohnsonWarp Six
"I'm located in Des Moines, Iowa. It ran from late 80s to mid 90s. It was mainly just a little local board. Very little file transfer action. Had a fairly active forum section and a few games, some of which I wrote. I had a trivia game that was kinda popular, and a never ending story that was pretty stupid but people kept on adding to it. It was just a text file that people would add one line at a time to once a day (per user)." "One thing that was a little different. one of the users on the Hide-A-Way decided to start his onw BBS running Warp Six and after about 6 months of late nights, his wife was ready to shoot him. Instead of shutting it down, we added it to my hardware and had a prompt for which BBS you wanted when it answered. Not multi-line, but multi-board. He was more able to resist the late nights when the computer wasn't humming away in the bedroom 24/7. ;) A compromise his wife could live with." - Scott Johnson
