Paul Witte (Handle: Questor Thews)FoRem ST
"I started the BBS on an Atari 130XE (can't remember the name of the software) then moved it to the Atari ST first on Michtron software, then FoRem. I am author of The Thieves' Guild BBS Door. This game was released exclusively for the Atari ST and had a graphical emulator front-end client. A conversion for PC's was made but by then the internet had pretty much replaced BBSes so we never bothered releasing it (I still have the software if anyone wants to use it on their telnet BBS)." - Paul Witte

Ryan BirdGAP
"Ran the BBS as a hobby when I was in High School. 2400 Baud, 286-12 server. Started out with a 54MB RLL Drive, then upgraded to a full height 80MB HD, (Which I RLL'ed to 120MB.) For most the life of the BBS, the computer was without a case and just sat on my desk. The Power Supply did not have a working fan, so everything was "air cooled". The big hard drive some times had to be moved back to the "middle" of the desk as it tended to move around a bit. Lots of fun, averaged 10-15 callers a day. Gave up on the BBS about the time I got my drivers license." - Ryan Bird

Burning Chrome I and II
(1989-1990)
Count Zero, DNA Cowboy, Quantum MechanicDialog
"The Burning Chrome BBSs were mainly known for two things. First, all things cyberpunk. We had some good discussion groups going on several cyberpunk related topics... books, industrial/electronic music, Culture, RPGs, etc. Second, we were bringing the freshest Amiga warez in the galaxy to that cool little pocket of die-hard Amiga evangelists in Utah, and elsewhere. Burning Chrome II also had a very respectable H/P/C/A area, and it was the HQ for the SLC based United Hacker Federation.

The original Burning Chrome ran on an Amiga 1000 with 1 meg of RAM and around 150 megs of external SCSI storage. It was accessed by a 9600 baud US Robotics Courier HST.

Burning Chrome II (which ran simultaneously) was powered by an Amiga 2500 with 2 megs of RAM, and a 50 meg Microscribe SCSI HD. Throughput was achieved via an Intel 9600EX.

Fondest memories: Pasting my buddies at Star Control while my BBS multi-tasked away in the backgroud." - DNA Cowboy

Kevin ThomsonVBBS
"The first Athiest BBS in Salt Lake City. At one time was a major hub for news groups and email for VBBS systems. At its peak sported over 32 lines. Was supported by Novell Network backbone, on 3 servers, each line had it own computer as to keep processing speed at its maximum. (these also provided heat for the house in winter months) Was finaly dismantled and slowly taken offline due to hackers, and expenses to keep all the phone lines active. Was fun while it lasted. - Now see -- http://www.nowscape.com/atheist0.htm" - Kevin Thomson
