Evilghost I know your setting one up but do they still exist, guess so, I could see some really rogue and bad things BBS's could be used for, hackers, crackers and some real bad sh*t, never thought of BBS's in a long time, the memories x-modem, z-modem transfer protocols
Great stuff have a blast.
I remember when YModem-G (Batch) came out, then Z-Modem. OMG, Z-Modem was awesome. I remember writing PPE's for PCBoard back in the day. I remember Wildcat V, Renegade, PCBoard, and others. Man, that was the day.
I downloaded Doom shareware v666 over X-Modem on a 2400 BPS modem.
I was on a telnet enabled BBS the other day playing LORD. Actually beat it again, love it.
