Remembering BBS Boards

A few of the BBS Boards I used before the Internet and its early days -
Fast Breeder, Cybercafe, New World Disorder, ENTITY, Blue Obsession,
Darkness Descends and many more...

"A Bulletin Board System, or BBS, is a computer system running software
that allows users to connect and log in to the system using a terminal
program. Once logged in, a user can perform functions such as uploading
and downloading software and data, reading news and bulletins, and
exchanging messages with other users, either through electronic mail or
in public message boards. Many BBSes also offer on-line games, in which
users can compete with each other, and BBSes with multiple phone lines
often provide chat rooms, allowing users to interact with each other."


My main involvement with BBS Boards began with Cybercafe with a certain
MR.Bunting (http://www.irational.org/cybercafe)
