Decaying Syndrome
(1986-1996)
Phiber Optik, Cyber-Phase!PC Board - Modified
"Decaying Syndrome started as a project running under a VAX at the University of Puerto Rico. In 1988 it moved from a VAX to a Digital Unix and in 1992 to a PC Running PC Board Software by Clark. In 1993 SysOps Phiber Optik & Cyber-Phase heavily modified the system using the PC-Board Scripting Language. In late 1993 the hackers re-named their board Decaying Syndrome and it became the 1st BBS in Puerto Rico offering h/p/a/v/c texts and information. The board became a haven for those who liked to learn about underground concepts in telephony, security, software cracking and hacking. It is rumored that the legendary group of puertorican hackers, the dead pirate society -=dPS=- , used the BBS to share information with anyone that managed to get access into the system. Access was not public and users needed to access the board after answering a lengthy questionnaire that only those in the "know" or part of the Elite movement would know the answer. In late 1996 SysOps Phiber Optik and Cyber-Phase! decided to retire the Old Skool BBS and the board quietly disappeared from the scene. dPS dissolved its organization around the same time. Most of its members hold now in their professional capacity chairs in disctinctive technological, economic, health and government industries. dPS members were: Phiber Optik, Cyber-Phase!, iRS, Jackal and Medicine Man." - Cyber-Phase!

CD-BBS, Christian Deliverance BBS
(1988-1999)
Craig ClarkGT Power, Maxiumus, Wildcat!
"809-292-1774 and 809-292-7376: all the same BBS. It had three phone lines at it's peak. Both of those numbers you have listed belonged to the same BBS, just different lines. The full name was Christian Deliverance BBS, and was abbreviated Christian Deliverance or just CD-BBS by our users (we also had up to 8 CD-ROM drives online at one point for downloads). Bermuda Net was the name of our local Fido network, of which CD-BBS was the primary node or gateway for the others. The BBS itself was never called Bermuda Net, but was known as the "home of Bermuda Net". CD-BBS started in 1988 and ran until early 1999, basically killed off by the Internet which became available here in the mid '90s. It's location for most of that time was Devonshire Bermuda, and I was it's main sysop from the beginning to the very end. Two years before an ISP existed here we started to offer internet e-mail to our users. CD-BBS joined FidoNet in 1992 or 1993, but as early as 1989 belonged to the GT Power Network, and offered users international netmail through that BBS network. CD-BBS was also a member of FamilyNet, a Fido-technology network, for most of the time it belonged to FidoNet. Other than for a very short trial period in the beginning (a few months maybe), CD-BBS first ran GT Power, then Maximus (first the DOS version then later the OS/2 version when the extra phone lines were added), and finally for the last year of it's life ran Wildcat! (Windows version). For most of it's life, Maximus/2 was the software behind it, and it was solid - both the operating system (OS/2) and the BBS software. At one point it ran for nine months without a single reboot, all the while hosting users, handling our incoming satellite feed for echoes and file feeds, managing both incoming & outgoing internet connections, running door games, etc. CD-BBS had a number of firsts for a BBS in Bermuda: - first to offer international netmail - first to offer echoes (messages) - first to offer dialup speeds above 9600bps - official McAfee anti-virus update distribution site (before they had a retail version or web site) - first to offer Internet e-mail (ahead of any ISP here) - first & only to ever use a satellite dish to receive files & echoes - first to use the internet to deliver/receive netmail and echomail - first to offer limited internet access to our own users - first to become accessible from the Internet - first to offer the short-lived RIP graphics - first to offer multiplayer door games - first to offer multi-user chat - most phone lines - most message areas - most users - most files online (most storage) At eleven years total running it was not the most long-lived BBS in Bermuda - that honour went to BerMUG. But BerMUG catered only to Apple users and required a special client. CD-BBS was accessible to anyone with a modem and had a wide variety of software available for download." - Craig Clark

Sean SoaresGT Power
"I started this BBS as a project while in high school. After visiting CD-BBS, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and setup one up myself. We recieved our main feeds for emails (Echo Mail) from CD-BBS during nightly runs. ND-BBS catered more to the younder crowds. It ran on an old IBM 286 with 4MB of RAM, a whopping 60MB seagate hard drive and a CD-ROM drive which was updated periodically with a shareware volume CD. In 1993 the modem was upgraded to a Zoom 14.4, which at the time was lightning fast. With the advent of the internet, popularity declined, and I eventually dispanded the service in early 1994. Now of course, I run a blog, www.imho.bm" - Sean Soares
