BB-Ess!

Hey folks.

I was wondering if there's any BBS's still around, like ones where I dialed something like 15 years ago, which you could Telnet/SSH/something in? I'd probably be kinda lost there even if I did found one, because it has been so long... Nevertheless, it would be awesome login to one once again

I don't think it's still up, but you can try Extradition, 87.81.134.130 Also try AcidSlam at http://acidslam.ath.cx/ There may be another, search the forum.

I toyed with the idea, and set up an AmiExpress under WinUAE to get it to look like old BBSes, but I don't think there's interest enough to actually keep it up. And there's little point in uploads/downloads these days.

Unfortunately it seems like both of them are down. I found this site http://www.telnetbbsguide.com/ which has quite alot of running boards listed.
I actually like the idea of fireing up a BBS but you're right in it wouldn't probably be lasting for long and would likely cause security issues :-/

I have added 12 gig of backups from 88-97 when my board was orginally online.

Wow, that's a huge slice of the scene.. Any way we could get that in an archive, via torrent or ftp, maybe on Magix's site with a filelist like Boiler Room or Boondox?
