"I started this BBS on an Osborne Executive (CP/M) computer with a "SmartTEAM" 2400bps modem. It had 128k of RAM and two 256k floppy drives. It did not have a hard drive! The BBS at that time offered a few useful CP/M utilities for download and a simple message area (no "echo" mail). Sometime in '89, I moved the BBS over to an IBM PS/2 computer running MS-DOS and Opus BBS software. This computer had a 20MB hard drive and a 1.44M floppy. I think the BBS offered an impressive amount of files for download despite the limited storage. (I even stored some downloadable files on the floppy. Speed didn't matter; The floppy was still faster than the modem!) In addition to files, I had online games, and (of course) five or six echomail groups. I changed modems regularly as technology improved. I remember spending $450 for a USRobotics "Courier HST" modem. These were first capable of 9600bps and then later versions supported 14.4kbps. This was the most popular high speed modem at the time, and both parties had to have a Courier HST modem to get the higher speed connections." - Adam Burke
