Vidiots Lair
(1994-2003)
Mike OlsenGAP BBS
"I started Vidiot's Lair BBS in 1994 originally located at Fort Devens, MA (near Ayer). When Fort Devens closed in 1996 it was moved to Leominster, MA. The BBS was shut down around the beginning of 2001. It ran on GAP BBS software. It had a decent sized file download library stored on a couple of CD changers that could be loaded with 6 CDs each and a number of Fidonet message forums, but the most popular activity for users was playing the online DOORS games such as Barren Realms Elite in multiple leagues with many other BBSes. I'm sure it was still listed in the Fidonet node list for some time after I shut the system down. With so many other BBSes shutting down at that time I didn't know anyone who was left to notify to remove the listing." - Mike Olsen
