BBS logos in ASCII art

This is my blog about Computers and how people communicated before the Internet.

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.

I will be blogging about BBS’s that are still online today.

If you would like to try out BBSing, I would suggest you download SyncTerm from “The Roughnecks BBS. He has a nice Installer preloaded with Live BBS’s.

    Tom, This is an awesome way to inform others about the BBS scene, & also a great way to keep the scene alive! I read about this blog on a BBS that is to be featured, & they are really excited about it, so I know it’s meaningful to those whom you are covering.

    Awesome, thank you.
