Sugar Mountain, Sugar Mountain node 1 of 4, SUGAR MTN
(1987-1997)
Bill Wereley, Bill Wereley (Mister Bill)Wildcat , Wildcat and Opus
"Sugar Mountain was one of the earliest and the longest running family oriented BBS in the Southern Tier of NYS, featuring 4 nodes of multi-node chat, over 80 on-line games, a huge upload/download section, a cd-rom software base, and nearly 300 FIDO echoes. Providing technical support for the modeming community, Sugar Mountain was a regular stop for nearly every modemer around. The Mountain also supported the business and educational communities with a huge educational database, support for home schooling and the K-12 echoes. 100% family oriented and squeaky clean, Sugar Mountain set the pace for BBSing in the area, and was as regular as sunrise: It was simply always there to serve as a basis for the entire modeming community - and, best of all, for most of its existence, it was FREE. Vociferous in his efforts to keep smut off line, Mister Bill had no qualms about directly interfacing with porn oriented area SysOps and users and taking them to task for their lack of fiber. He recognized that the System Operator occupied a unique and powerful niche in the community, and used that role in person and in print for the betterment of all. All in all, Sugar Mountain and its SysOp was an experience that never will be forgotten!" - Bill Wereley

Michael Hickman, Osw.FreeAcadPCBoard, RBBS
"The BBS was a fun project and helped me get a programming/sysadmin job later on. I wrote a grant request and got funds from IBM for the equipment, got to lead a team of sysops, the school district asked me to speak at a state teachers' conference. I used more of the skills I learned running the BBS than most things I learned in school! :)" - Michael Hickman
