I was a SYSOP in the late 80's early 90's running Red Ryder Host BBS software and named the BBS “Ghost Ryder” not based off of the Marvel Comics. I ran it for a short time when I lived in Memphis, TN. In the early 90's I also started getting interested in Amateur Radio and today I hold my Extra Class license. But back then I only held a Technician - No Code license. I participated largely in the W4BS Radio Club. Worked VHF alot! After the internet and time killed off my BBS I focused more on Amateur radio. I started getting nostalgic and wondered if there were any BBSes left in the world and then I found that they do on telnet! I started dabbling with it again and found that the small community within the confines of your own BBS was nice and cozy. No “accidentally” posting a message to the entire internet. Unless you intentionally wanted to. It was nice to see some BBSes still humming along and with a user base.
