For some reason today while waiting in the doctor's office, I flashed back to my days of running a local BBS. I used Wildcat! (like pretty much everyone else did) and it was some of the most fun I ever had. Since I only had one phone line, I remember I could only run it late at night after everyone had gone to bed.
Mine was called the SLUG BBS. SLUG stood for Salinas vaLley User's Group. Kinda lame, but SVUG just didn't have the same catch. I think that is one thing I miss about living in California in the 90's, computer stores on every corner and lots of BBS's to talk shop with people. Of course I had to call other BBS' and the first time we got a $600 phone bill from calling all those up in San Jose, the wife threatened to throw it out the window. Can't hardly blame her for that.
Mine was simple, just some messaging and a few BBS games like Trade Wars.
Anyone else jump on that bandwagon?
