The Dial-Up BBS Revisited

Most BBS enthusiasts know that the last outpost for BBSes has been, for some time now, through telnet on the Internet. There was a time, however, when when dial-up BBSes over analog phone lines were the rule, not the exception. And believe it or not, there are still a handful of BBSes out there that have not modernized and switched over to the ‘Net.

Great find. That photo brings back memories as my setup was almost exactly like that, but not in 1994. I had a computer and monitor that looked like that in the mid-80s. And with a 7-lb. Northgate keyboard made of steel, I was in heaven. My current system, which is great, doesn't give me near as much joy; much like reading a book for the first time: You can read it for the first time ever again.
