BBS Building and Operating
The Original Social Network
I have always been captivated by building networks, either technology, social, or creative. From the '80s and my first commodore VIC-20 to the getting smart and converting to Atari, bigger, faster, and the more connected the better.
We ran southern comfort dial-up bbs on a highly modified fast amis program called southern amis created and improved by a local group of sysops. Machine language was added, online slots, blackjack, and of course plenty of downloads... The author was The Griff and freely shared his upgrades and the platform with our group which included South of the Border, sysop Pedro. We all took down our board around 1988 or so along with the Bandits Hideout as other local boards (New York) were disappearing the same as the rest of the country.. Forem, Amis, BBS Express, Oasis, and a bunch of other platforms, of course, were quickly replaced by the web... Long forgotten but always packed away well, my 8-bit Atari hardware close by, and when the Wi-Modem was created by CBMstuff, I went to work on bringing back some old work... Seems I'm not alone as 20+ boards are now running via telnet.
