Mike WaltersWildcat!
"Mike Walters and Steve Gardner used & operated small BBS's with several friends from school in the late 80's and early 90's. The two would go on to co-found ServUSA Internet (a nationwide ISP with nearly 8000 total subscribers) in January of 2000 (and later joined by Brian Locklear). ServUSA Internet would grow to serve business, residential, government, and ultimately high-speed wireless customers and would purchase several smaller ISPs including MSQuest (a leading Mississippi ISP in 2004). In 2005 Earthlink offered to purchase the company for $1.2M, but was not sold at that time. The company was finally sold in 2007. According to Mike Walters, working with BBS's in the 80's contributed to the trio's future successes (including developing a state of the art extranet system called RAAS and a caching proxy for dialup user's that increased the users apparent download speeds by 5x). "We only had a thousand calls or so to our BBS over the years, but it sure was a lot of fun! .. Those were the days!" -Mike Walters

"The Citadel was a simple BBS that ran on a Hyundai 8086. It only had one feature, an active game of TradeWars 2002. At midnight on New Year's Day 1992, the Citadel began the Catacombs of Atlantis, was upgraded to a 486 computer, faster modem, had a variety of door games and access to various networks. We still had great TradeWars games, and for a long time had the largest selection of TradeWars modifications and downloads of any website in the country. The Catacombs of Atlantis ran until 1997." - Jason Bostic

"I started operating this BBS when I was 13 years old. In 1991, few 13 year-olds had access to computers in the home. Even fewer knew what a modem was. I was introduced to the technology by the person who sold my family our first computer. After the fifth or sixth time I managed to break the machine, he decided that I should find an outlet for my curiosity and sold me a modem and gave me the number to his BBS. I was fascinated by it and shortly thereafter, my BBS was born - dedicated line and all. I had to close down the BBS when I started High School. When I closed down the BBS, I had hundreds of members. My BBS had a node on FidoNet and I was using WAFFLE for UUCP email. It was a great learning experience, lots fo fun and a clear path to a great career for a 13-year old." - Geoffrey Edge"

"Node 2 Number was 910-485-0613. I remember a friend of mine from high school got me interested in computers in 1983. I hung around the local Radio Shack for hours (even skipping school somedays). After high school I joined the Air Force in 1984 and didn't get back into computers until 1990 when I deployed to the desert during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. I again became addicted to computers. When I got back in 1991, I found out about BBS's through a friend and I decided to buy my first computer (a Packard Bell 386-16 with 4MB RAM and 130 MB HDD (WOW!!!) for $2,100.00. I immediately located a copy of Spitfire BBS shareware and played with it. Once I got the system running in my dorm room on Pope AFB, NC, Rick's Place BBS was born! Man, I had a lot to learn. I moved about a year later to an apartment in Fayetteville, NC. I met several local SysOps and helped others new to BBS'ing on what to do to set up their own BBS's. Soon, after many upgrades and increased HDD space, I obtained a second system for free through a computer salesman. The only catch was I had agreed to place "commercials" for his store. Didn't get too much negative feedback for it. The callers were just happy to be able to log into Node 2. By the time I became fully operational with both nodes, I had networked two PC's together using 1 Mbit network cards sharing 500 MBytes of space. I was the local hub for Barren Realms Elite and CircuitNET. That was quite a bit for 1994. I shut down the system in 1996 when Windows 95 became popular and my users started getting hooked on the Internet. I realized that BBS's would soon be a thing of the past. I still have my BBS backed up on tape but the files are probably corrupted by now. All that PC experience and BBS technology got me started into a career in networking. I now work for a large TelCo and manage network routers. I think back from time to time and wish I could do it all over again - even though some of those users caused me a lot of headaches." - Richard Winstead

Jason LedbetterWWIV , PCBoard, MajorBBS
"So from 1992 to early 1994 it was called The GENERIC BBS and ran on WWIV. From 1994 to 1996 it was on PCBoard and called "Genocide!" for some unknown reason. I did "switch" to MajorBBS for a couple of months before moving back to PCBoard. I ran the BBS as a form of entertainment and learning during my high school years.

"Unfortunately for my potential callers, the BBS computer was also my personal use computer... which meant it went offline anytime I wanted to dial out. :)

"I look back very fondly on the BBS days.. quite miss it actually but that was a different time and a different place." - Jason Ledbette

"My board was up for 13 years, from 1983-1996. It originally started on a TRS-80 Model III running 'The Green Machine" public-domain software written in BASIC. After a couple of years I moved to TBBS software for the TRS-80, and then migrated to the MS-DOS version of TBBS around 1990. 80-MICRO magazine highlighted my board in one of it's issues as the only one it knew of that was being operated from within a Radio Shack store. I was the manager of a Tandy Computer Center here in Wilmington at the time. Of course, the corporation didn't know that I was using some of their phone lines for a BBS, so when the magazine came out, I was awaiting my forced retirement phone call. It never came. But my BBS started getting calls from all over the world requesting support for Tandy computer products. I tried to answer all that came in, but it definitely showed that Radio Shack needed to set up a corporate BBS. I suggested it at one of our annual meetings, but the idea fell on deaf ears. I know I have that huge list of TRS-80 based BBSs from 80-Micro around here somewhere. I left Tandy's employment in 1987 and moved the board to my home. I was Wilmington's first BBS, and had hoped to be it's last, but the Internet came along and stole the attentions of most of my BBS's adult members, leaving me with just the troublesome teens whose parents wouldn't let them on the Internet. I decided that it was no longer worth the time and money to keep it going, so I pulled the plug. Now I devote my hobby time to maintaining web sites." - Mark Samwick

"Running this BBS back before the Internet was even available in homes was a total blast and I still miss all of the fun things that BBS's allowed you to do. Then the internet came along and now BBS's are virtually extinct. ...but that's cool too, because now I have my old BBS name as my internet domain and have a website that can offer so much more...even though it has not been updated in quite some time due to school and the fact that I am working on redesigning it. I do still have my old BBS backed up on disk, though, so I guess I could always put it back online again for anniversary purposes. ;) Thanks in advance for adding my info." - Flexman

"My parent's had just gotten the internet hooked up at our place which made us get a second line. At that point there wasn't too much for your average joe to do on the 'net and we had a half broken laptop laying around the house. So I asked my dad if I could run a BBS off of it. The BBS was only up for about a year or so but I was really amazed and intrigued at watching other peoples styles of using BBS's. People sent me money to register a few door games (L.O.R.D. and Usurper I believe) and I got to chat with random people that I would have otherwise not chatted with. I moved in 1997 after getting out of high school and shut the BBS down with it." - Christopher Zinkula

"I got started in the world of BBS's back in 84 or 85. I remember getting my first "Mighty Mo" 300 baud modem for my Commodore 64 for Christmas. After a year of just calling other BBS's, I decided to start my own. It ran on a Commodore 128 with a 1200 baud modem (blazing at that time) and I had about 4 external floppy drives from which everything ran. My handle at that time was "Mach I".

"I chose the CNet software package because it allowed me to really get in the guts and customize things the way I wanted. I had users all the way from Canada that logged in on a regular basis. On my site I provided documentation for various apps and games that were found on other sites. In addition, my site hosted some online games for the users to enjoy and compete against the other users.

"The BBS community was a great place. I had the opportunity to meet about 10-15 of my regular users and kept in touch with them for probably the next 10 years, even after I closed my BBS for good. It was truly a community of people willing to help other people learn about the new electronic frontier and it was awesome! In the area I was in, there were probably 4 or 5 BBS systems that were a local call, and I got to know the SysOps really well. We helped each other maintain our systems and increase our userbase.

"Today I am a Network Admin for a communications company, something I probably would not be if it had not been for my experience in the BBS community. The friends that I made during that time were very instrumental in my staying in the IT world." - Mark Creasman (Mach I)

"One thing I liked to do on the BBS was to give them a show. I had neat ansi graphics screens when you first dialed up and logged on, you'd see a castle with an animated door that opened. It closed when you logged off and gave the goodbye message. I had the very first 200Mhz Pentium system in town. It was, by far, the fastest local BBS. I also used the fastest modem available on the market at that time, I believe it was a 33.6k external US Robotics. I ran the latest version of Renegade BBS software and even had it up on FidoNet toward the end of its run. Something else that few people knew; from about 10pm until 8am, I would run it as a multi-user system. I had 2 lines available for it. Shortly before I moved away, the Internet came to town and the BBS traffic went down a bit. If some of the old members would like to see what I've been up to, they can visit my website at www.gildavis.com. Thanks, all! Gil" - Gil Davis

Bandit BBS is actually back up since July '07 through telnet at bandit.synchro.net running Synchronet Software. I tried for a few years to get TriBBS running through netmodem and other software for telnet over the web but kept having issues.
