Chris BennettAscii Express
"The name of my AE was the Jolly-Roger Soft-Shop. It ran on just two 5.25 drives, and a 64k RAM drive (remember those?). It had two claims to fame. First, it had a new game uploaded onto each drive every single day.. it seemed that every piece of software that crossed from one coast to the other went through my system. And second, it had a really cool (at the time) little VT-52 text art scene of a space ship coming down and landing (thrusters turning on and off and all). I probably have that somewhere still. I ran it for a few years.. I guess til highschool. For a time I put it up during highschool as a Proving Grounds system. That was fun :)" - Chris Bennett

Nun-Beaters Anonymous

Guido SanchezTelegard
"300 users at the peak. World HQ of tfile group "BLaH". Primarily a textfile and message board BBS, every user would receive SysOp access upon application of new user status. Also implemented "LEECH" function in Telegard that would allow users to download the board's entire collection of 5000 files in one huge archive, implemented with filebase granularity (especially evil with the virus archive filebase). Otherwise completely unremarkable BBS with heavy message base activity (100+ quality posts a day, usually busy phone lines, no networked message bases). Received recognition as one of two prominent USA virus exchange BBSs by an anti-viral industry group in 1991 (the other was The Hell Pit). Featured as "bbs of the month" in Boardwatch at some point."

"I remember this BBS well! It had six line text chat back in 1990. It was meant to be a for-profit BBS, tho it never quite reached that. In 1990 it was a good hangout for techies who would help each other with hardware & software problems. By 1991 it was getting more dating service users who changed the tone of the message base. The SYSOP even organized a few user meetings in 1991-1992. It closed up sometime in early 1993." - Mkowalsk

Titanic BBS, Unsinkable RMS Titanic
(1994-1996)
Eric JoyWWIV
"I (Eric Joy) am the original SysOp of the Unsinkable RMS Titanic BBS and my handle there was 'Captain EJ Smith'. I was in the US Navy stationed in Great Lakes at the time and ran the BBS on a early z80 PC with a 40MB HDD and I think it had a 1.44MB floppy drive and a dual sided 5.25. I had a 56k modem (I think... gosh memory fades)and am trying ot get it running again today since BBSs are seeing a small resurgance. I have a small (hardly ever updated) website www.the-joys.com that I am trying to figure out the direction of... right now it serves as a personal site only. I had a friend I met there (cannot recall his name we are out of touch) that was a co-SysOp and was starting his own BBS at the time; and he was on the network I founded called SEXnet but I do not know what happened when i transferred because my BBS never came back up again as after Chicago, IL I was in Japan for 3 years. Note to list owner: Please correct the name as it was never "Titanic BBS" it was always "The Unsinkable RMS Titanic BBS" - Thanks

"The most famous virus exchange BBS in the United States- its collection at its peak was second only to the Virus Exchange BBS in Bulgaria. Hacking, phreaking, and programming message bases. Access to the viral file bases required that you upload a virus to their already-huge 1000 unique virus collection (very impressive for 1991 standards)- and even then, each virus required 50 file points to download (equivalent of a 500KB file for a mere 4k program). Later (1993) joined NuKENET viral programming network. Many rumors that this BBS was a fed board, all unsubstantiated. BBS went away after Kato (the programmer brother) moved to France and Hades (the punk rocker brother) graduated high school and moved out of their folks' house."

"Wow - what a gem to find this site. I came across it by searching for MEGACOPIES, which is still (15 years) in the printing business. The BBS system was deployed as a way for our clients to send us their documents to us for reproduction. Of course... I had to "enhance" the system during every spare moment. Putting in the FIDO news group feed, what was the name of that very popular fantasy text game? Ypu'd go into the forest and kill animals? Talk in the pubs? Dragon something? Whatever it was - it was all a blast! Of course, then it was cutting edge and very few clients would use it simply because they didn't have a modem, or if they did, the print button was much easier to push. :) The BBS really never paid for itself, but it did wake up our company to the up and coming digital age. The offical name was "MegaCopies' Document Reception System". Did the Internet kill the BBS'es? No, I believe BBS'es helped the Internet become what it is today, only faster. Too all fellow SysOps and BBS users - It was a BLAST! Thank you." - Wes Johnson

"One of the first Apple ][ BBS/AE systems with a hard disk drive (10 MB). A highly customized interface had two operating modes: Extremly slim menu requiring only 3 lines for the techies who already knew the command shortcuts, and the full-screen menu catering to new visitors. Originally 300 baud, then 1200, and ultimately 2400." - Darien M. Kruss

The drive would crash constantly, and when it did work, it was really slow. Thanks for putting this site together, it's brought back alot of memories of BBS's that I had forgotten about." - Sysop

"Wow, this things you find when you google/yahoo your name. Yep I ran GridPoint years ago, you probably got my listing from after I became a Fido node as you list my real name rather than a long forgotten handle: It began it's life on a suped up IBM PCjr which I had modified to have a 2400 modem and a 40meg MFM drive (needed a huge extra power supply) As it grew it eventually migrated to a Tandy 1000, 286 machine on a 9600 modem, then later adopted one of the 28800 v.fast modems (when they were still arguing standards) and eventually became Fido 1:112/632 in the last year of it's life. Thanks for the walk down memory lane." - Ernie Kemnetz

"I started this BBS on a C=64 (later C=128) using the C-Net series and other BBS programs with a 312 area code number (before the 708 area code was added to Northern Illinois). Back in the Commie days I had an elaborate ANSI color based title screen that took at least 120 seconds to display before login (much to the chagrin of the users at 1200 baud!) Once the transition to PC/XT came I adopted Telegard. I added Newsgroups and FidoNet access and maintained a healthy download file library with more than 100 regular users. I had close ties to some of the DiverseyDial (Apple II chat) and Amiga based layouts - we had usergroup pool parties where all of our teenage hormones could be sampled in person! Fond memories and i still have friends in that area who I speak with!" - thx1138010101

Chris Todesco
"The Game Zone was first known as Gamers' Galaxy before it was relaunched as the Game Zone. The sysop was a kid named Chris Todesco, who went by the handle Desco. Like so many BBS's, the board went through long periods with little administration. It had a pretty lively message board at times, as I recall. I don't whatever became of Chris, but his parents still live in Bolingbrook. Another site worth mentioning is Jay's Place (708-759-7302), which was also in Bolingbrook, also run by a kid, whose name was Jason Jordan, and went by Jay. I remember giving him several dozen floppies of text files for the site when he rode his bike over to my parents' house one summer. He would go on and become one of the best tuba players in the state and got a scholarship to Eastern Illinois University. Don't know where he is now. I love this site. It's brought back so many memories from my mis-spent youth. There were months when I racked up some hefty phone bills calling BBS's all over the state. I miss those days ..." - Marcus Brown

"I have been running BBS's since 1982 (Magrathea BBS 1982-1985). I ran Bloom County BBS in Champaign from 1986 until my graduation from the University of Illinois in 1987. After 1987 I was working hard, paying my dues as a computer consultant and was not able to run a BBS for a while because I was apartment hopping. I finally bought a house in 1990 and was able to setup Magrathea BBS, this time using the PC-based Remote Access software and joining FidoNet. I ran the BBS for over 7 years, gaining a popular Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy following, and becoming a ChicagoLand distribution hub for FidoNet, sharing the messages and costs so that others could enjoy all of the FidoNet message forums. Around 1997, after watching the declining interest in BBS's due to the rising popularity of FidoNet, I finally decided to call it quits, ending a 15 year SySop career. Today, I have my own consulting firm, and maintain our website at www.integralcorp.com. I am eagerly watching the evolution of new BBS type software, such as that as EZBoard.com that is bringing back some much needed sense of community that BBS's used to have, but the Internet did not." - Sun Kwok

Will & Gregg SperlingC-Net 9.0 (1989-1993) MAJOR BBS (1994-1998)
"The SCUG BBS was originally run by Joanne Ashdown, but in 1986, she transferred control to Will Sperling. Will ran the BBS on a Commodore 64 under the C-Net software until it was bought out by IMAGE, and the system later upgraded to IMAGE 2.0. Gregg began learning more about computers, and assisted with the administration of the system from approximately 1990 to 1996. The Suburban Commodore Users' Group disbanded, and Will retained the BBS and continued to run it out of his own pocket. The BBS was converted to the CARMA (Chicago Area Radio Monitoring Association, www.carmachicago.com) main bulletin board system sometime in 1993-1994. During this transition, the Commodore 64 platform was abandoned in favor of the IBM PC. MAJOR BBS software was utilized on a 486SX2/66 with a 340MB hard drive, and 15" SVGA monitor. CARMA BBS eventually had Internet E-Mail connectivity via UUCP. Finally, the BBS was abandoned in favor of the Internet." - Gregg Sperling

Mark DrozdORACOMM
"I am not sure how I can across your web site but I am sure glad I did. It brings back many good memories of my bbs years. You already have me listed on one of your list but I thought I would provide some additional information. I ran the Oracomm software and I am almost sure it was node #318. It was always listed as being in Hinsdale but it was really in a small town next to it called Clarendon Hills. I run a bbs prior to Oracomm on my Commodore 64. I still have that computer, drive and printer! I want to say that phone number was 789-3966 but I cant recall if it was area code 708 or 630. It was probably 708. You have a great compilation is bbs lists/numbers. I probably have a few of these lists on one of my old hard drives from. Thanks again for the memories. I will need to drop back to continue to browse your collection." - Mark Drozd
