Bob NewellaDBBS
"GobblerNet was the very last system in Bismarck, and when it closed down, the era ended forever in central North Dakota. It was a Linux-based BBS. In those days that was pretty rare. The system runs again, by the way, as ChungKuo BBS, in my current Santa Fe, New Mexico location, as a telnet only system: telnet://chungkuo.org " - Bob Newell

Anderson's Toolshed, The Gamer's Guild
(1991-1995)
Jon ThorsonMajorBBS, RemoteAccess
"The Gamer's Guild ran on a Tandy 1000TL with 768k of RAM and a 40MB Hard Drive with MS-DOS and RemoteAccess BBS software. Anderson's Toolshed ran on a beefier Homebrew 386DX-40 with 8MB of RAM and a 250MB Hard Drive, with MS-DOS and MajorBBS. The Gamer's Guild was a single node BBS dedicated to online games. I think the most available at one time was around 110. Anderson's Toolshed was a dual node BBS and focused on the darker side of life, forbidden subjects, conspiracy theories, UFO's, bigfoot, etc. and had a rather large adult section. It also had around 15 online games available." - Joe Thorson
