Sounds like my story ... I also ran a few BBS's from the early 80's until the mid 90's. A bit of my history on www.lizard.us

It's always a hard thing to describe to people that learned to type when the internet became popular in the late 90's.

Ain't nothing like BBS door games like trade wars, food fite, etc. and the old echomail systems like FidoNet. I started my own EchoMail network (I only had about 50 BBS's participate).

There are still some BBSes that you can access via telnet ...

Anyway, those were the good old days ... too bad it had to end, but thankful for the highspeed worldwide network and lower phone bills. :)

The ol' blue box ... I too attempted to build a <blank>box out of a radio shack tone generator.

Remember the old cDc articles? A big part of my childhood. :)
