Chris DiOrio (Osmodious)DragonSoft
"I was a pretty addicted user on both Dragon's Weyr and Boardroom. The Boardroom had a fund-raiser and I donated whatever the amount was ($100?) and received a free copy of DragonSoft BBS software, as well as support from the Weyr's SysOp, and DragonSoft developer, Ron (Sauron). Jet ran on a Compaq Plus with 10MB full-height hard drive, internal USRobotics (hand wired!) 1200 baud modem for line 1, external IBM 2400 baud modem for line 2...I ran DoubleDOS so I could use the PC during the day, and have 2 sessions of DragonSoft running at night (to support the two lines). There was not a lot of computer users in Hunterdon County in those days (fairly rural, for NJ), but the BBS was popular for a while. Mostly just message boards and software sharing...DragonSoft didn't do doors or anything like that. By the time Ron moved DragonSoft over to Amiga, I had already bought an A500, which was not suitable to run a BBS. And I just ran out of time to run a BBS." - Chris DiOrio
