"This was a part-time bbs that ran from December of 1989 through November 1992 in Anchorage. When we moved to Connersville IN we changed the name to "Gulliver's Travels" and switched to Maximus v3.x. Another move and a lightning strike pretty much did things in but I would still like to get it going again by Fall." - Sarah Read

Ghost Wheel/Mike AdamsWWIVnet
"I'm not sure on the dates, I was running it and working full time for the Alaska Army National Guard. Then when they moved me to Nome, I took the BBS, and I was on WWIV and other related networks all call in and like. Got expensive. Went out of town for a week or so and came back to a $800 long distance phone bill, and that cascaded to losing my job and other fun. Not the best time of my life. The BBS gave me purpose, and it may have stared c.1988, about the time my dad passed away. I believe for a short time I was the furthest west BBS on the planet, at least in the Western Hemisphere, unless someone had on in ... at least the mainland.." - Mike Adams

"The Rice Paddy was online at least as early as 1983 and I think possibly as early as 1982 though it may have had a different number or name (same sysop) at launch. Al Rice ran an Apple dealership in Fairbanks AK and operated the Rice Paddy out of his home in nearby North Pole. I still remember going to the store with my dad to buy the smartmodem II." - Hey Harris

Captain Midnight, The BanditGBBS
""My first BBS. Operated from my bedroom on an Apple //e. Was modeled after Alpha Board, the first local BBS I ever connected to. Storage consisted of 4 143k Apple 5.25 floppy drives. The modem was an AppleCat 212 which would allow connections up to 1200 baud (fast!). This BBS was later changed to Midnight Madness when I switched to GBBS software. I changed my handle to Captain Midnight at the same time. My second BBS was Midnight Madness when I made some software and hardware changes. Switched to GBBS software from the other program (whose name escapes me). Upgraded to a whopping 10 megabyte hard drive which I purchased used from Bob Stevenson the Sysop of PMS-Anchorage. This system ran on an Apple //e which was dedicated to the BBS (no multi-tasking back then). It was mainly a bulletin board with very few downloads." - Captain Midnight

Bill HanafordWildcat, Wildcat!
"NorthStar BBS used Wildcat software and offered dial-up access, upload and download UUCP mail services (early email accounts!) and telnet along with public and private forums, file storage, downloads and conference areas. In 1994, NorthStar became one of the first dial up Internet Service Providers in the state of Alaska and the first in Juneau utilizing the Wildcat BBS/Web software and browser. NorthStar also featured one of the first e-commerce sites on the web. Prototype e-commerce systems were designed for the grocery industry and the computer hardware/software industry as early as 1994 utilizing online billing, order entry and tracking." - Bill Hanaford
