Every once in a while a character appears on the Synchronet radar screen and makes a significant impression on those who monitor it. Some times, that impression is a crater made from the impact of heavy foot stomping and the reverberations of incoherent shouting of an inept would-be sysop. Occasionally, the foot-stomping incoherent frustrated sysop leaves and then reappears again some years later to repeat the entire process as if they'd never been there before. Rarely, does such a sysop repeat this process multiple times. Phil is such a sysop.

“Phil”, for lack of a better name, is how we've referred to him for years; that's not his real name. His real name is “Kernal2”, “Terminator”, “Terminator2”, “CyberChat”, or some other such shit. We'll just refer to him as “Phil”, as it's short for “Philosophy”, which Phil happens to be particularly good at. Below you will find quotes of Phil and his expansive deep thoughts as they relate to Synchronet, its developers,, DOVE-Net, and the BBS community in general.


Phil has many fans in the BBS (and PHILosophy) community. Some have even created exceptional fan pages devoted to him and this page intends to be the official “Phil-Wiki” where all “facts o' Phil” can be found and updated by all Phil-fanatics.
