Another Ami-Express BBS Returns!

Hello,

After burning out two A1200's by running them 24X7 to host my old BBS, I have finally made the leap over to WinUAE. With the help of folks from here and our Ami-Express Sysops FB group, I have it taking traffic via telnet.

It can be reached via telnet from your favorite terminal program here:

Spatulacity.seeglow.com

I wrote up the process of virtualizing my physical A1200 for the project with the Spiceworks IT community here.

I would love to see some of the old scene stop by for a little BBS nostalgia!

Cheers,
~illy

Interesting stuff, and thanks for the link. I'm glad the second resurrection wasn't quiet as hard work as the first!

Yeah and now all of us sysops are nicer. We just want to relive the good old days and not be so strict with ratios.

Is Ami-Express freely available these days, or do you still need a key for it? And how do you get it to work over network like that and not old-fashioned modems? I used to run a BBS a long, LONG time ago and have pretty much forgotten everything about Ami-Express even though that was what I used....

Black Beard has put a lot of work into his sysop in a minute archive.

He has everything set up so you just have to download his package and you should have /X up and running in no time.

All calls are handled by telnetd.device these days but I think BB has also setup a modem on his board as well.

Brett, did you ever run with a crew out of Iowa called "CIA"?
