Airspace Non-smokers' Rights Society BBS
(1985-1995)
Dale JackamanHeavy Metal, Opus, Maximus
"The full name was Airspace Non-smokers' Rights Society BBS. This BBS was in fact up and running around 1985 on a Kaypro 10 cp/m (ZCPR1 and later ZCPR3 actually) machine running Heavy Metal BBS software. The BBS was private for the first year or so and used only as an organizational tool for the Province wide Airspace organization. I made it public for the public relations value and it caused quite a stir due to its, at the time, controversial topic. I think we must have invented flame e-mail because we sure got a lot! It was later moved to a PC clone running Opus 1.1 on DOS/DesqView and later again migrated to Maximus running on DOS/DesqView and later Windows 3.1, Windows 95 and some short term flirtations with OS/2 and even an early beta of Windows NT 3.1 I got directly from Bill Gates and the senior management at Microsoft. The BBS was also on FidoNet with Binkley as the front end for the most part. I pulled the plug in the fall of 1995 as we migrated our systems to e-mail and the web. The organization is still very much active, makes the front pages regularly, and has a web site at http://airspace.bc.ca and http://safework.ca.

"The Kaypro Users Group BBS (VKUG) was also active in these early years. (pre-Airspace in fact) When I first got the machine from a gentleman who ran the Vancouver Portable Computer Club BBS, who's name I unfortunatly forget, it was on an old cp/m Osbourne One (running ZCPR version 3) with a 5 meg Trantor hard disk and a 300 bps modem. It was also running Heavy Metal BBS software which I converted to Opus/Binkley and Maximus/Binkley. Kaypro donated an new 4.77Mhz Kaypro XT clone for the Opus software conversion which firms up the dates pretty well I should think. Jay Siegel and I shared SysOp duties for those years. I think it was shut down finally in 1995 but can't be sure.

"The VPCC BBS I believe was one of the very first BBS's in British Columbia if not Western Canada. There is some reference of the old organization at http://www.pccfa.org/whoweare/ but no mention of the BBS unfortunatly." - Dale Jackaman

"Wow.. This took me back. I was searching for my hometown name just for fun. I wrote this BBS in QuickBasic, and ran it all through highschool. It started out as simple ascii scrolling text. Next email, games, ANSI graphics, & Fidonet. Started on a loaner 1200 baud, and upgraded to a 2400 baud for most of its life. In its last year, I went to (high speed) 14.4k. Most of its life was spent on an old 8086 PC, with a 30Mb HD I got for free from my dad. I had a number of online games, including Tradewars, an online tetris where players could compete for the highscore, later on VGA wars, and full fidonet support. I had to call kelowna to get my fido feed (aka fix). I have a copy of the software, somewheres on a disk. I just wish i could find it. Relive the dream :)" - Joe Piche

PowerHouse Point
(1986-1998)
Doug ShieldsVarious
"You have 3 listings for Powerhouse Point in Vancouver BC... they are all one and the same. They all also happen to be mine... :)

The life history...

Powerhouse Point was started by Doug Shields of Chetwynd BC in 1986 as simply "Powerhouse". Its history parallels the history of BBSing in general and the technologies available in publicly accessible network technology of its time.

It began as a jr. high school project on a 300 baud modem using Red Ryder for the Apple Macintosh and was allowed 1Mb of storage on the shared 10Mb network storage device. Originally it was little more than a messaging board with only a couple users on an irregular basis. It was maintained after the project ended and over the years it grew more and more useful with each new software release. Eventually it ran on the best Mac for its time, with a dedicated 10Mb external dedicated hard drive. Chetwynd is a small town however so the number of users remained limited.

In late 1990 it moved with Doug to Coquitlam BC. It had grown to 2400 baud and was using Maximus for OS/2 on a state of the art 386 PC with 105Mb of disk, and 4Mb of RAM. It joined the FidoNET network as a point node, and became "Powerhouse Point". Expansion of the BBS world was hot, and so was that of Powerhouse Point. Maximus was much more than a simple messaging program and Powerhouse Point made good use of this with online games, file repository, and a wide range of messaging topics geared toward game enthusiasts, PC hardware, and OS/2.

In 1992 it moved to Burnaby BC and expanded to 2 phone lines at 14400 baud. As network technology became more accesible Powerhouse Point became a full FidoNET node, and added ibmNET, and Internet network connections.

In 1995 Powerhouse Point expanded beyond the BBS world and became a computer consulting company and retail PC hardware supplier. Later that year the technology used to power the existing BBS was duplicated and sold to a group of Richmond BC entrepreneurs for a new commercial BBS business venture. The new system was built, tested, and ready to go however financing and technical issues ended the venture prior to the new system being publicly available. It had become clear that the BBS world had reached its peak and that the Internet would soon dominate. The revenue potential was too risky to justify the business startup costs in capital for the new phone lines, modems, multiport serial hardware, and related infrastructure. The failure of this venture had no negative effect on the original Powerhouse Point BBS, but rather the new technolgies for the commercial system were largely developed on and already incorporated into the original.

By late 1996, Powerhouse Point reached its peak at 2 28.8kbps lines in Burnaby, a third 33.6kbps line in Vancouver, and an almost unlimited number of Internet users over a 128kbps ISDN Internet link providing SIO and Telnet connectivity. Powerhouse Point was being powered by the latest versions of Maximus and OS/2. Surprisingly it ran on the same 386 PC it used in 1990 though it now ran with 32Mb of RAM, 13Gb of hard disk, 4 CDROM drives, and supported LAN network server code over a 10mbps Ethernet network. The BBS now supported dozens of games, over 1000 repeat user accounts, over 30 local message topics, 100 FidoNET topics, 200 Internet newsgroups, dozens of local file areas, over 100 FidoNET file areas, and the entire contents of the ibmNET network. Its main target remained the online gaming, PC hardware, and OS/2 communities. Behind the scenes it was also providing dial-up LAN and Internet access via SLIP and PPP, as well as faxing services for the growing list of Powerhouse Point business requirements.

In early 1997 Powerhouse Point moved headquarters to Calgary AB. With almost no public users in the Calgary area, a growing requirement to focus on business needs, and the continued growth in the Internet, it was clear the BBS was in decline.

In April 1997 the FidoNET network was dropped. By June the other networks had been dropped, and the public dial-up line was disconnected. In June the BBS software was officially shutdown for the last time.

In mid 1999 the last known backup of the Powerhouse Point BBS was destroyed. Rumours persist that two other backups may still exist. One was almost certainly destroyed in 1997. The other cannot be found but is not believed to have been destroyed.

The Powerhouse Point name continues to live on. The computer consulting company formed in 1995 is still owned and operated by Doug Shields in Calgary AB. It can be found on the Internet at http://www.powerhousepoint.com. The company also is known to occasionally run public servers for popular Internet games such as Half-Life, and Counter-Strike using the Powerhouse Point name. The company still services OS/2 and PC hardware, and has expanded into the Windows NT/2000/XP environment with custom application and web site development, network management, deployment, and related services.

The original 386 computer that powered the BBS most of its mature life is still in production use at Powerhouse Point as an OS/2 file server. It sits right next to the much more powerful systems that succeeded it and now provide the backbone of web, e-mail, database, and other operations at Powerhouse Point's Calgary AB location." - Doug Shields

Surrey Morgue

Lorna ApplebyBlue Board
"One of the most common software systems on the West Coast of Canada was the Blue Board, a great message based software system for the Commodore 64. An actively updated system it was always on the top of the game. It provided the sysop a choice of votes or file systems. It also contained one liners, as many message sections as you could think of, a passworded message section. It was one of the first non-IBM BBS's that supported 2400 baud, 80 columns, and word wrap. It's design was copied for a Mac board (which unfortunately I no longer remember the name of) and was originally created in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The Surrey Morgue was launched when my brother, SysOp of "The Highway to Hell" wouldn't let me play with his set-up. We both started modeming in 1986 on a Commodore 64 at 300 baud. The first BBS I called was a Blue Board called "The Streets of California" and I soon found myself calling all the boards of the other users. The Blue Board was cheap, incredibly easy to run and customize, and phone lines were even cheaper. The best part was it came with a built in terminal so when no one was on *your* board you could call other ones.

The Surrey Morgue, which averaged between 30 to 40 calls a day (A decent rate for a Blue Board) for five years was eventually shut down when I moved out of my parent's house. I still have friends today from friends I made from that board. The Vancouver area Modemmers (what we called ourselves) that are still active have a telnetted STS BBS they log into and a mailing list I run which is accessible via http://www.backtalk.org/mailman/listinfo/modemmers" -Lorna Appleby

Beowulf (Peter Anderson)Vision, QuickBBS
"The Establishment was first established in 1986 in North Vancouver, running Vision BBS software on a Commodore 64, donated by Steve Hooper, Sysop of .38 Special (after that board was taken down. In 1992 the BBS was relocated to New Westminster, still on a C-64, though it was later moved onto a PC platform running QuickBBS software when the C-64 finally died. Later, in 1999, the board was relocated to Surrey. Many users did not make the transition to New Westminster, and many more did not make the transition to Surrey. The BBS suffered a hard drive failure in 2003, and I decided to not re-Establish it (by this point in time there were only a handful of die hard users still calling the board). Along with The Milky Way BBS, The Establishment was one of the longer running boards in the lower mainland, at just under 17 years. The phone number listed (575-1183) is the last one used (after the relocation to Surrey)." - Beowulf

Ken PachkowskyWildcat
"This was my BBS. It was the first Wildcat BBS in British Columbia. The serial number for the software was 008. It was large for its day in terms of storage capabilities. I used Perstor disk controllers that effectively doubled the capacity of MFM drives used at the time. The bbs had 156 megs of storage. I started my first BBS in Regina Sask back in 1983 on a TI994A Computer with a 300 baud modem. I had alot of fun over the years running a bbs and could not have imagined it would grow into the WWW we see today." - Ken Pachkowsky
