Microbe II BBS
(1984-2002)
Bob MooreWildcat
"The Microbe II BBS started as Microbe BBS a place for a friend of mine to be able to experience using a BBS and to stay in touch. It soon become a source of information for those of similar computer or technical interests. The II designation was added when the BBS moved from a TRS-80 Model 1 running dual floppies to a Model 4P that grew to 3 floppy drives and an external 20 MEG HD. 20 Meg was a lot of strage at that time. I still have a working Full size 5 MEG drive I had used. Later the BBS ran on an 8086 IBM clone,an 8088 then an 80286, an Amiga and finally grew to using a Lantastic network of computers with a W.O.R.M. drive,several CD changers, 5 computers with 9 hard drives,3 transceivers and assorted TNCs. A Sola UPS and several Everex Streaming Tape drives became part of the system.

"The members laughed when AOL first started sending those floppies advertising "50,000 files online", as Microbe II BBS had over 240,000 at that point in time and all of them freeware, shareware or public domain. Several were written by the members. Multiple door programs ranging from games through standalone programs never intended to be remote accessed thanks to a utility program and amateur radio callsign lookups were added along with various batch processes to allow files to be added automatically which were obtained from a C baseband satellite feed.

"A Msys radio BBS with 2 meter,220 and 440 transceivers was linked into the lan shortly there after. Licensed amatuers could enter either landline or radio BBS system and use the other system. Many different BBS programs were used over the years, including Fido, Citadel and BBS-PC. Other names escape me at the moment. Operating systems linked included DOS 3.3 , OS/2, Windows 3.11 and of course Amiga Dos. Wildcat was the last BBS software used on the landline side after the systems took a devastating lightning strike. We didn't hear the boom first, just a sound like an arc welder and the lights going out...then a terrific boom and the smell of burnt electronics. Not one of my better days in history. Fortunately nothing caught fire, they just smoldered.

"After that disaster a scaled back system was used until my MIS career and second job became too demanding. I ceased operations in the Spring of 2002. The fun and experimentation of running various systems paid off in good friends and career advancement oppertunity. I've served as a network admin on a 3600 node system spanning 24 countries and currently manage IT, Telcom and network security for a defense industry company among other things. I still enjoy "playing" with computers over the last 34 years but not neccessarily enjoying all their users. :-{ I still have my TRS-80s,Amiga and other computers including an old Sperry-Univac BC/7. I now relax commuting to and from work on my ZX14 Ninja after a few years of a ZX-12R. Growing older is no excuse not to have fun!

"Budland used a modified version of EBBS128 software for C= 128. With the 64K limitation of the P compiler, I had to branch the software into 8 different modules which handled different tasks, much like what was called "Doors" in the IBM world at the time. The doors consisted of 10 message boards, 10 download areas, a private download area, system reporting, intrusion detection analysis to see what was being attacked. I updated the script to use a 2400 baud Multi-Tech modem through a userport serial adapter. It ran on four 3.5" floppy drives, 3 for storage, and 1 for the system. Over the 10 years, it answered over 30,000 calls. It was a popular site for messages. I would often talk to users and then they would leave messages as well. Had many friendships from the board." - Rich Jones

"This was a great BBS that was run on a mainframe that the SYSOP's father had. The program was made by the sysop. Had great message boards with tipics like Creation vs. Evolution, The Flamingo Club and more. There was a section for jokes, but you couldn't name any specific race or group... so you had to say "random ethnic" like "a random ethnic is being chased by the KKK" and stuff. Great BBS." - Eric Anderson

Russel Miranda, Robert MirandaVarious On C64, Amiga
"This Enterprise BBS started on a C64 with CNet64 software and two C1541 (170K) disk drives, later including a C1581 (880K). In 1987 it was moved to an Amiga and included packages that briefly included Atredes, then switched to Paragon/Starnet/MEBBS as that package transformed and changed owners. On the Amiga, Russel Miranda wrote the MailStorm FidoNet mail processor that was later donated to the MEBBS version of the BBS product by William (Bill) Bowling. Robert Miranda (me) contributed ZTick (FileBone control) to the 3rd party FidoNet utilities provided with MEBBS, which was a complete rework of an earlier Starnet-based effort by Russel Miranda. The BBS later was seen online as per your records as GVP BBS (215) and Phoenix BBS (717) through 1994. Also, I know there was another 717-223-based BBS during the mid-80's for about 2 years (85-87 I think), run by Ed Chrissey, and was located in the area now known now as 'Foxmoore' between Marshals Creek and Bushkill, PA., but the name is eluding me at the moment. This BBS was popular because Alan Davenport (Al's Cabin 717), who wrote an offshoot of the popular Tradewars game (later renamed to Yankee Trader), was friends with the sysop. It was very popular because the 223 exchange was free to the Bushkill/Stroudsburg/East Stroudsburg area and also to many of the Mount Pocono area.

"Another note: Pocono BBS, Don Isenberg - was operating much longer than you have listed (at least since 1985, and possibly earler) and claimed to be the longest running Pocono area BBS. I attended many User/Sysop parties during the time and knew him wel back then. I can also confirm most of your info on Paul Faeder's PoconoMtn BBS, as I knew him, and he lived in the Pine Ridge private community at the time, next to mine. A note about the Motherboard franchise of pirate BBS's: Bart Kaplan was the Sysop and 'franchiser', originating in NY, but moved to Royersford, PA for about 6 months in 1989-90 timeframe. It ran on the latest USR modems in basic-box '386's that used Novell Netware 2x linked with 10Base-2 Ethernet. He was a roomate for 7-8 months and a co-worker during that time.

"One final note - Joe Mollica of various BBS's at 215-551-1485 was in operation from 1987 when he retured from the armed services that year and returned home to his native Philadelphia. His Philadelphia Amiga Users Group BBS incarnation was run on an Amiga 2000 with 5 high speed lines, and was supplemented by Great Valley Products (Amiga 3rd party HW developer in Paoli/King of Prussia) with hard disks, 68030/68040 processor cards, and high speed serial ports, and ran Paragon/Starnet/MEBBS from 1989 onward. His was one of the few BBS's in the area (excluding the specialized configuration the Z1C George Peace had) at the time that could handle a week's FidoNet mail feed off the satelite backbone feed when it occasionally had problems." - Robert Miranda

"It was a single node system that I started on a 386 33mhz computer with 16 MB ram. It had an 80MB hard drive which was split into two partions, one for the board and the other for personal use. I was about 11 when I first started it up. I found a number for a board run out of a dorm room at a neighboring college and that's where I found the software. I had a few CD-Rom full of software that I rotated out weekly. At most I had 350 users, with about 30-40 regular callers and another 100 who called atleast once every couple of weeks. Sometime in 1993 I started exploring other types of software and found the creators of Iniquity and Nexes/2 on IRC. For the next year or so I ran Iniquity and then went to Nexes/2 as a beta tester and finally back to Iniquity. When I switched from renegade I also changed the name and the feel of the board and added a second node for telnet (heard of RLFossil). It was the beginning of my life as a technie... boy I miss those days." - Cool

"1st BBS in Harrisburg area. Started with 110 baud. Mentioned in an AP story in several newspapers and a blurb in Time magazine. Near the end we were supporting Telebit PEP modems and were offering usenet and fidonet through a Pagesat satellite feed. Users dialed the main number (had several roll-over lines) and could select several different systems to log into. Often copied by others who claimed the changes were their idea. Most notibly by the library out of Hershey. We were also one of the test locations for AT&T's new service - caller ID which made it a lot of fun when abusers called and we knew who they were and called them back.

"Wizards keep (general board) DYM#42 (sort of a fun matchmaker service) The Pit (online fantasy role playing game) the data factory (dedicated to TI99 users)."

"We also sponsored a yearly Halloween party with people comming from several states away. System started with 8 apple II's and a corvus network. Ended with a Unix server." - John Core

"It wasn't a very good BBS, but it was a lot of fun to do, and it taught me a lot. In fact, probably the one person who benefitted most from it was me, but hopefully others enjoyed it, too. Interestingly, I still have it sitting around somewhere." - Nick Fitzkee

Sharae Deckard, Robert Morris, Rotating
"This BBS was a student run production, founded at least in 1995 by Robert Morris (I think maybe as early as 1994). Sharae Deackard was co-sysop until Robert moved from highschool to the significantly more prestiguous MIT-- so she was officially the sysop during the 1995-96 school year. I (Pete Spangler) was co-sysop during this time, then graduated to head in the 1996-97 school year, assisted by Peter Brunengraber who in turn....

"Although the BBS was built (I think) entirely by Robert, credit must also be given to the computer instructor, Steve Griggs, who took money out of his own budget to support the BBS." - Pete Spangler

Blue Moon
(1993)
Maverick, Jayson HansenRenegade
""Blue Moon" BBS. Some very fond memories. The BBS offered many of the common features of any other local BBS, however, where we lacked in files (due to a lack in hard drive space) we made up in message networks and doors. Blue Moon had at one time the most online doors (registered and free) than any other local board, I want to say 102 door games in all. We carried over 20 message networks, including all the "big ones" such as FIDO. We made it a point to offer the local area the latest Renegade releases, sometimes days before FIDO file distribution brought the updates to the area (we made it a point to call Cott Langs BBS atleast twice a day) as well as offer the most Renegade utilities including releasing some of our own. Coitionist (SysOp of Sexual Tendencies - Dan Gellatly) was my Co-SysOp." - Jayson Hansen
