Good to see Fidonet and the BBS Scene is still alive. I ran a PC Board BBS back in the mid 90's. Was a lot of fun and educational too.

Fidonet BBS was so cool back then. Doc's Place BBS is hanging in there but traffic is way down. I keep threatening to pull the plug but then get a surge of callers. laugh

From 1994 our Droolnet Headquarters planet connect satellite dish. City code inspectors threw a fit after it was installed on my roof. I bought this old $100 Datsun B-201 and we bolted the dish on it's roof.. After this stunt the city ended up changing it's code policy on the mini-dish.
