Nathan KullSearchlight BBS
"BBS was established primarily for its door games and included national league Door Games. The BBS also had a couple of messaging feeds including FidoNet. It ran on 486 in a big ass, heavy, rackmount case that sat on the floor. Most remembered by me about the system is the loud ass fan and the yellow monochrome monitor that started burning in the waiting for call screen and console status bar. I also had one tournament that I don't think I ever got the winner of the game his Lasertag voucher that he had won. The board closed and I think I just kinda forgot about it. --- It was fun while it lasted." - Nathan Kull

Ray ChristensenRBBS
"I used to be a user on YEBB way back in the day, and it was definitely *not* a Christian board. Also, while it was indeed run by Ray Christensen, it didn't run RBBS if I remember correctly. My memory is that it originally ran PCBoard, and at some point he switched to TSX-BBS. I'm not sure which should be listed - the PCBoard days were probably YEBB's heyday as it was free then, and thus had a lot of users, but that was a short period compared to the later, longer TSX-BBS era where it cost money, but offered a lot more functionality (including, eventually, Internet access). In addition, YEBB has been around later than 1996. I know we were using it at least in December 1997, and I think we stopped somewhere in 1998 - by this time, YEBB had primarily become an ISP, although the BBS functionality still existed (although it was no longer well-used). A Google search for yebb.com (this was YEBB's domain name) turns up a number of articles, message board posts, etc. from YEBB users in 1999. The search even turns up one message board post claiming to come from a yebb.com address in 2002, but I do not know if this is accurate (the user may have just forgot to update his/her e-mail address on the message board). However, 2002 *was* the year that Ray retired as the SD Secretary of Education (http://www.augie.edu/news/pressrel/general/2005/sep/gen2_25.htm) so perhaps that was the year that he closed down YEBB - I'm not sure as we had all moved on well before that time. For more specific information, you could probably still call Ray Christensen - he seems to still be operating in Sioux Falls, and would probably be in Switchboard. It would probably bring back old memories for him of the times when I used to relentlessly harass him via the "Contact the SysOp" feature, as well as when other users used to complain of the various antics I pulled, such as sending messages to people with "^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G^G" in the subject header, causing the receiving computer to start beeping wildly, even when the victim went into the Mail interface to delete the messages, and forwarding error messages sent by the TSX-BBS system and various daemons to people, while changing their texts to spin a little story about the BBS's various systems conspiring together to overthrow the humans and take over the world. It's really a wonder that I never got kicked off that board." - Anonymous YEBB User

"The BBS was run on a variety of software during its existence eventually setting on Wildcat which it ran for the majority of its life. It had a number of doors including Legend of the Red Dragon, Tradewars and Usurper. It had a Fidonet feed and towards the end also connected to an internet email gateway." - Jim Williams
