I’m just a good ole southern boy with a web server! 😎 This little chunk of cyberspace showcases the Fidonet bulletin board system days before the net, while keeping up with today’s modern tech world, politics, among other interesting topics worthy of blogging about.
Since 1991 and hopefully well into the future Doc’s Place BBS has been the home for savvy Fidonet Network Bulletin Board System callers and is still online today!
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. Though Fidonet is still a text based network, Doc has somewhat modernized his Wildcat V5 BBS software to allow callers access from the www and telnet. Mail packets are now instantly sent around the world by a scripting program called binkd. More info.
If you have never heard the term Bulletin Board System (BBS) Doc has the full 8 video BBS Documentary Series Online for your viewing pleasure. Take a visual trip back in time to where old slow dial-up modems and hobbyists like Doc connected the world via the Fidonet network. Those were the good old days for sure!
