Timothy Phillips, Andy PhillipsRenegade, WBBS, Searchlight
"Hi. I happened across your site in my quest for something else. I wanted to submit some additional info (corrections) for this BBS that is already listed in your database. My name is Andy Phillips. I attended DeVry Institute of Technology in 87/88/89 and started this BBS in my home in Phoenix while in school as a hobby project. My brother, Timothy, helped me as Co-sysop while I was in school, then, after I finished school, he took it over and ran it until it closed in 1998. We had an awesome time, as there were many BBS's that came up since that didn't enjoy as long a run as we did. Especially since we were thriving years after the Internet came on the scene." - Andy Phillips

East Valley Portal, The Treasure Hunters BBS
(1989-1994)
Richard RectorTelegard/Renegade BBS
"Hi, I was the Sysop of the East Valley Portal. The BBS first went online in October 1989 using Telegard BBS Software. The BBS evolved by word of mouth until December 1990 when I decided to Join Fidonet. Dave Bell was my contact on this. I changed from Telegard to Renegade when Cott Lang started programing it from the old Telegard Source Code. It wasn't until the middle of 1994 that I changed the format of the Board to The Treasure Hunters BBS. It seems that the unwelcome change plus the fact that the Internet was gaining popularity, The board went from over a 1000 regular users down to less than 50. So I decided to take the BBS down. I have no regrets about ever running the BBS, And I really Enjoyed the users that I had. I really think it's Great what you are doing, Keep up the good work!" Richard L. Rector - Gatekeeper, The East Valley Portal.

The Sherwood Forest BBS, founded by Dr. John A. Myers, was one of Phoenix's largest and most successful BBS's, and the home of the extemely successful Door Game, Stardock Loco. The day it was taken off-line to merge with JCCS BBS and Ranch & Cattle BBS to create az-jccs.com, a Phoenix area ISP, Sherwood had 1400 users that called in at least twice per month, 172,000 files and one of the most active gaming sections anywhere. During the years when BBS's and the Internet were peacefully coexisting, John also operated the Internet site, Little John's BBS Doors Archive, maintaining a single, definitive source of BBS Doors for SysOps around the world. The Archive was taken off-line in 1998, around the same time the BBS was shut down. At the time of its closure, the Archive contained more than 2gb of catalogued and linked files.

While Sherwood, JCCS and R&C are now gone, as is az-jccs.com, "Little John", is still active in the computer community. Sherwood Computer Systems (www.sherwoodcs.com), an off-shoot of the BBS, is still in operation and providing the same quality service that is synonymous with the name. In addition, John is the Chair of the Technology Department of Arizona Institute of Business and Technology, West Valley, and the owner of several online businesses." - Little John

"Hello, I ran the Data West BBS from my room for several years. It actually started it's life as CandyLand but was only up form 10pm-7am. WHen I could finally afford a phone line (I was only 14 when I started...) it went online 24x7. It ran on a Commodore 128, Color 64 BBS, a 1750 Ram Expander, 2 1571's, and 1 SFD 1001. I used to "advertise" the most games of any BBS, but I never really got all the game modules working correctly. WHen I bought an Amiga 1000, I switched to running 4DBBS software. I still have my original 4DBBS software, and I believe it loads up on my Amiga 500 w/ 50mb HD. I no longer have an external modem that works, nor the 500 plugged in. Ahh, it was fun though!" - Todd Shannon, aka Data Master

"The BBS was origionally (and mainly) called The TARDIS BBS, and was started by John Lorance when he was 15 as a project to write "a RBBS clone that didn't crash every five minutes". He suceeded. QBBS and WBBS (by Wayne Conrad) fought it out for most popular BBS software in Phoenix for a while. Mark Firestone took it over -- it later mutated into Fear, the BBS and then YoYoDYNE BBS. It has been reincarnated as a web page and email list. The URL is http://tardis3.netfirms.com"

"TUBBS first went up on an Apple II with two floppy drives (110K each) and a 300bd modem running a BBS written in Apple Basic. In 1983 it moved to an IBM XT clone with a huge 10 meg hard drive and a 1200bd modem. We ran a few different software packages before finding WWIV, written in Pascal with source code. In 1990 we went to running Major BBS and added 6 2400bd modems. We were never a download BBS. It was more of a neighborhood bar where people chatted and hung out." - Devin Rankin

David Johnston, James Taranto (JT)Searchlight, Genesystem written in TRS-80 Level II BASIC by JT in 3 days
"This board, the 300 baud "fastest BBS in the West" was the scene of lively political discussions, flame wars, inside jokes and puns. The SYSOP James Taranto (JT) was an aggressive opponent of the original "SYSOP's Charter," which he felt was a form of censorship. At one point JT lobbied his friends not to use the Apollo BBS (602-246-1432) because he felt Apollo SYSOP Cliff Kolostow didn't allow free speech.

"JT went on to study journalism or something. With help from the ACLU, he sued a professor who suspended him from the student newspaper for publishing a cartoon making fun of affirmative action. As of May 2007, he's editor of the Wall Street Journal's Opinion Journal and author of its "Best Of The Web" page (a Genesystem), found here: http://opinionjournal.com/best

"Other users of Genesys included Frank Lopinto, Nick Ianuzzi, Head Quasar,Keith Frost, Keith Gregg, Peter Cervelli, Joel Genesys, Rae Ackerman, and the late Paul Savage. I (Head Quasar) also used Apollo and BLAX-80." - Head Quasar

Mark FogleCustom
"This was less a BBS than an attempt to timeshare a TRS-80 Model I. I wrote the software myself, hooking into the TRS-80 Model I BIOS (such as it was) and replacing all of the in/out calls with calls to read/write data from a 300 baud modem. Dial-up users could chat with me sitting at the console or play the currently loaded Scott Adams Adventure (which, over a 300 baud modem wasn't a particularly compelling experience). Each user also received his/her own virtual filespace, which they could use to write their own TRS-80 Basic programs. This, of course, meant that I needed to disable any BASIC function that would allow writing directly to memory, as this would have allowed enterprising users to take over the machine for nefarious purposes. The project consumed most of my spare time during my sophomore, junior and senior years of highschool. Once I got into college and gained regular access to a PDP-11, the PV-80 project, not surprisingly, languished. I can't remember when I finally pulled the plug, but I suspect it was sometime in late 1982. For at least a couple of years afterwards, however, people continued to call, having found the number on some outdated BBS list and deciding to give it a try." - Mark Fogle
