Tony TalarigoOASIS, VBBS
"Excalibur BBS began March 11, 1986 running on an Atari 800 w/twin Floppy drives and a 1200 baud modem using Oasis 4.1 BBS Software. It evolved to an IBM system in November of 1990, running VBBS on a 286-20mhz and using DesqView multitasking software to enable 3 concurrent nodes on a single system with at the time a huge 120meg harddrive for storage. Over the course of the next ten years, it continued to evolve to newer systems. By 1996 however, users logging in had dropped from its high's of 45-60 per day, to only 1-2 per day. The BBS's last caller was logged on April 10th of 2000, even though it remained available for another year, it recieved no calls. I retired the BBS and turned the last remaining line into a fax line in June of 2001. Over the years, I've had calls from as far away as Australia, Japan, and all parts of Europe. The script capability of VBBS allowed me to create scripts that became popular with VBBS sysops worldwide, whom would call in just to download my packages. Thanks for having a site dedicated to the memory of all these great BBS's, the true forerunners of the Internet should always be remembered." - Tony Talarigo
