From 1991 Into 2018 and hopefully well into the future, Doc’s Place BBS is the home for savvy Fidonet Network Bulletin Board System callers (BBS)
Doc’s little piece of cyberspace showcases the good old days before the net. While keeping up with today’s tech world. Kindly say hello while your here. 😉
We System Operator’s (SysOp’s) as we were called back in the old days are the early online communication pioneers of the era. Using personal computers and dial up modems, we relayed early Echomail worldwide via the Fidonet Network, that still exists today.
Doc’s Place BBS is web browser accessible. Offers web based qwk mail, and language translation. Or Telnet in on port 26 for a simulated dial up terminal experience. Our Synchronet BBS 1:123/141 was retired from lack of use, even though it was a more modern version of Fidonet system that better supported online messaging with it’s html interface.
This website is a treasure trove of early communications history. Have a look around using our navigation menu above. To learn more about the SysOp and this blog click here.
