Tom Davidson aka The KeeperKeeper-Line
"After watching the movie Wargames in 1983 I got a modem for my C-64 and discovered the BBS scene. I found a simple BBS program in a computer magazine... If only I could remember which one. Anyway, I developed the software for the next couple of years incorporating the Punter protocol for file transfers, my own assembler I/O routines, and compiled the BASIC using the Blitz! BASIC compiler. Oh the good old days." - Tom Davidson

"I just stumbled across your site via a link from Tom's Hardware. My most fond memories were running a BBS in the mid 80's on the CNET software (C=64). I was a little bummed to not see my BBS listed when I lived in Santee, CA., but about fell out of my chair when I saw my BBS listed in Centreville, VA (AC: 703)-(Double Trouble). You have a great site and it's nice to see "our generation" recognized." - Problem Child

The Penthouse Suite
(1985-1986)
Robert Kuhn (aka: Rammy)TC-BBSxe (modified)
"Ran on an Atari 130XE, two disk drives (a modded Atari 1050 drive [Single Sided/Double Density] 180KB, and a Teac [Single Sided/Double Density] 360KB), originally an Atari 1030 modem (110/300 baud) then later to a Supra 110/300/450 baud and then eventually a Volks 300/1200 baud via an Atari 850 RS232 interface/adapater. The software was written by Total Control Systems (TCS) which was also in San Diego and not that far from where I lived at the time so I was able to visit and talk with the developer. The XE version was a huge upgrade over the previous versions. If you were lucky enough to have the 130XE you could take advantage of the additional 64K of RAM by making it a RAM disk and then loading the menus and other text files. This would speed up the performance of the site and give you more space for storage. About a few months of owning the software, I modified the message base to resemble CNET (another popular C64 BBS software). I felt their message base/layout/etc was clean. At one point I hooked up an Atari 800XL, wrote a "connector" and setup a multi-lined BBS. I remember running into problems with the message base. Reading messages were fine, it was only if two people were replying to the same message. In the end I fixed it by using part of the RAM disk as a cache/buffer but that mean sacrificing loading menus and other text files up in RAM. Eventually I went back to a single lined system as the other line was actually our house line so it was only avaialble at night. I pulled the BBS offline in '86 when I moved with plans to set it back up again but never did - just wasn't into BBS' anymore, Those were some fun times, however." - Robert Kuhn

Info-Core I
(1989-1994)
Dan SikorskiRenegade
"Originally called The Double D BBS from 1989 to 1992. Renamed to Info-Core I in 1992, when partnership between Info-Core I and Info-Core II developed with Dan Gilbreth and Dan Sikorski. BBS ran Telegard BBS Software up until Renegade BBS Software became available. The Double D BBS was originally a father-son activity, which turned into a full-time activity for the son and was only supported financially by the father. During from 1992 to 1994, Info-Core I & II were vital hubs to the original warez underground in San Diego, until Info-Core I was busted by the FBI at the end 1994. Info-Core II went off-line at the end of 1994, two days after the FBI raid on Info-Core I. Info-Core II ran Wildcat BBS for a short period of time before switching to Renegade BBS. Original ANSI artwork from Michael Tomlinson (co-sysop of Info-Core I & II) is still available on the Internet somewhere. After 1994, the original SysOp's went seperate ways and never spoke again." - Anonymous Poster (Listed himself as Dan Sikorski, Second Dan Sikorski disputes this)

Jim BoweryFORA
"I wrote this multiuser chat/bbs system (programmed primarily in ASM86) hoping to seed an approach to large scale networking I started as the network architect for Knight Ridder and AT&T's VIEWTRON videotex service while at their joint venture, Viewdata Corporation of America. Unfortunately, Bill Blue, a local competitor, also in San Diego, had a deal with the Naval Ocean Systems Center via which he could obtain Usenet feeds at a very low cost -- a cost with which I could not compete. He was providing these feeds to the public which I believe was illegal, given that they were via MilNet (DARPA). I did attempt to have the Naval Inspector General's office investigate how to either terminate my competitor's illegal advantage or acquire said advantage for FORA, but after a few go-arounds and "we're looking into it"s, my resorces were running too thin. The combined financial and operational troubles (my attempts to exclude suspected child molesters was landing me in tough personal situations) led me to shut it down after about 4 years.

"BBS was run on a TRS80 Color Computer with 2 double sided floppy drives. You loaded the BBS Software, then put in the two disks for data and messages. Modem was J-cat 300 baud (a Hayes 1200 baud modem was like $250.00 if I recall right, so not to many people had them). Features were lots of Basic downloads and sharing of Computer Knowledge for the TRS80 color computer. Also were mod information such as programming the extended basic chip using a ROM burner (which was new at that time). No one I knew had a hard drive in those days as a floppy drive was about $100.00, and a 10 meg hard drive was like $500.00. My first Color computer with 4K ram was $400.00 The Color computer used a 6809(e) (the e meant it had an external clock) 8 bit processor." - Dave Tipton

Amiga Commodore Edition
(1987-1993)
Michelle Pankratz, Michelle Pankratz (Olsen)
"Originally known as Commodore Edition, the name eventually changed to Amiga Commodore Edition, as in a new edition of the news. This bbs was most amazingly run on a Commodore 64, with a bank of nine 5 1/4 inch floppy drives chained together. I wanted a hard drive, but the only one really available at the time was a Lt. Kernal that was several hundred dollars. Originally a 1200 baud bbs, we moved to 2400 baud relatively quickly. It took years to save up the big bucks to buy a U.S. Robotics 9600 baud which was even more than the Lt. Kernal. This bbs took over my living room, with two lines (one just for sysops) tall rows of metal shelves to hold the floppy drives and of course, multiple monitors that allowed me to see what the on-line user was actively doing and make system changes. Once I discovered the Amiga, I switched nearly everything over to that OS and ran for 2 more years, eventually bringing in FidoNet. Over time, the flame wars got to me, and I decided it wasn't worth my time any longer to babysit people who just wanted to disagree and argue with each other. I miss my bbs friends. I would love to get back in touch. I remember the days when we had our munches and everyone got to put a face to the names of the people we chatted with every day. Although I was one of the very few women at the time, I was lucky to be considered a nerd before my time. Thank you sincerely, Michelle G. Olsen, Former SysOp, Amiga Commodore Edition"

(1985-1995)
Richard FamigliettiDLX
"San Diego Connection BBS (Bulletin Board System) was born on Sept 3rd, 1985. It grew to over 2500 members and 32 lines. It was run on a Pentium I PC with 4 digiboards and 32 15.6 modems. It started out with 1 300 baud Hayes modem and gradually upgraded to more lines and better modems until I sold my interest in it in March of 1995. At that time, there were over 40,000 single line BBS. in the US. SDC as it grew to be known was the premier social networking site at its prime. We had weekly meetings and quartly parties were members could meet each other and put faces with their online friends. SDC also had nightly online games, message boards and downloads." - Richard Famiglietti

Mark PetersenFidonet
"Alpo Net was run initially on an IBM PC with a 20Mb half-height drive. Later the capacity was expanded to 2-20Mb half height drives which made it one of the largest capacity BBS systems in San Diego. The Modems used during this time were US Robotics models rated from 1200 up to 9600 baud.

"The early BBS systems, particularly networked Fido-Net BBSes were the precursor to the Internet and they represented a technical revolution themselves. It was a pleasure to be a part of this history and see it recognized on this fine website.

"Watching the PC revolution happen firsthand was quite an exciting time. I met many nice and interesting people from running this BBS including Mike Elkins from Mike's C board and Steve King a frequent contributor to PC, Byte and PC Tech Journal magazines. I also chatted online with, "the Poway Cracker" who had the infamous distinction of being one of the earliest and most well known computer hackers.

"I also saw firsthand how some local companies like Pacific Data Products (HP LaserJet add-ons) grew from a 1-2 person startups to valuations in the tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars. Similarly the stories of Apple, Microsoft, Kaypro, Radio Shack, AST, etc. are well known but it was fun to watch this revolution from the sidelines." - Mark Petersen

"I ran The Brewery for 10 years. By 1997, the World Wide Web was finally coming into it's own, and as I kept a dedicated machine to the BBS, as well as one for me, plus phone lines for each, I decided it was too much trouble to keep up, as well as I was losing interest, callers were down, I couldn't afford a multi-line system, etc. We (My users, and other BBS Systems' users) use to go to Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor in Escondido, CA for years, then it migrated to Alcapulco's Mexican Resturant for awhile, then it briefly was in another Mexican resturant in Rancho Bernardo, then finally Round Table Pizza in Poway. Good times, good times. :) Check out the Brewery BBS' Obituary in ComputorEdge http://trageser.com/computers/online/1521.php (Jim Trageser was a farly regular user). I wish I'd kept the BBS software and datafiles when I took it down, but lack of HD space a year or so later made me decide to erase it for more room. :(" - Robert Eddy
