Mortifis has been an avid BBS'er since the late 70's and has been a SysOP since 1994; then using SBBS 2.00g.
After having tried various BBS softwares like: Wildcat 3.90s, Wildcat 4.0M(10), Widcat 5x, Renegade, WWIV, Mystic, PCBoard,
phpNuke CMS, and many variants of Linux based BBS Shell scripts, he always stayed true to Synchronet because it is, IHHO
the most stable and relevant BBS software suite available; above which, the community of developers, is, above all,
unprecedented in any era of BBS'ing !!!

His career is a long-haul tractor-trailer driver and has over 2.5 million miles across 46 of the 50 States,
and 9 of the 10 Canadian Provinces.


Mortifis is best known in the BBS world for asking irrelevant or already answered questions,
having a few too many beer before logging on irc.synchro.net#Synchronet, and cracking jokes only
he finds humorous, and for updating the wiki pages with erroneous information :-P

Mortifis' Hobbies include Raspberry Pi projects, Synchronet JS modding, home made beer and wine, scaring distracted driver's by laying on his air horns and engine brakes and giving uninvited advice to anyone with ears :-P
