Default UART

So, I'm setting up Renegade BBS and will likely be doing FidoNET as well. Anywhoo, I'm wondering I should use the FOSSIL driver for my 16550A UART so I can do FIFO and support 57600.

Not sure if I'll do multi-node or not but L.O.R.D would rock multi-node. Need a co-sysop, any volunteers?

I remember it was around 1990 when I went to a friends house and he fired up the first BBS I had ever seen on a Commodore 64.

He also had one of those turbo cards for it to boost it from 1mhz to like 6mhz. We were still big Commodore fans until the days when VGA became cheap because Commodore gaming was better. It had better sound and better graphics than my CGA at the time.

I was a noob in the 90s. I really didn't take interest in computers till about mid-96... and really started getting into them around 97. I also didn't have much access to the internet, so I was not a member of any forum.

I remember some time around 1995 my father came to me and told me about the Internet, and how it was better than localized BBS systems. At the time I was dialed into a BBS over 19200 with a USR modem I saved up for. I looked at my father, in the eyes, and told him The Internet is stupid and no one is going to use it.

Oh how I LOL now.

I'll be honest, I really don't know what you're referring to. I assume BBS was competition for the Internet- I suppose?

My first BBS experience was on my old Atari 800XL with a 300/110 baud modem, was a blast, BBS's were so intimate and geeky loved them.

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.
