Retrogaming files coming very soon! BBS Door Gaming!

I have doing BBS's since 1983. I saw someone connect and I was in like heaven. I said I gotta do this! So I built myself a 300 bps modem. It was not easy on my budget of working at the grocery for $3.85 / hour + tips (ha! what tips!)

So then I found the code for an Apple 2+ BBS - I think it was called GBBS it was all in BASIC, I knew my BASIC back then, so I spent hours upon hours rewriting it for the C64 I had. I had a BBS up and running in about 15 days.

WOW! I was running with the big boys now. Years pass, BBS grows and closes.

I went to the Navy. When I went to shore duty, I got an IBM 5150 and found something decent to run. Back to sea, and I left it running in my apartment. I came back and someone had “taken it over” and was doing a great job. We met and I gave him the system. Not sure what happened to it.

Back to sea again, and before this time I got an Amiga. I didn't leave it running...but it did have a point running. I must have had 25K+ messages when I came home.

This time, I saw this software, Synchronet .94, I was like DAMNNNN, that is a kick ass system. I paid for it right then, Rob, sent me a manual. I ran a couple of versions but life was getting hectic so it all got put away.

Well, 1998 comes around, and the bug bit again. I got Sychronet, and basically been running it in house for myself try to make sure I can do everything.

Well, 2020 is here now, I think I can. I am going to get into javascript programming now, I hope to do some utils and things I haven't seen before.

Have a good morning/day/night.


(Oh yeah, I LOVE [])
