I also have a rather outspoken personality and frequently use a few colorful metaphors getting my point across. This is without a doubt a no bullshit zone!

As for my political views, I’m a strong Donald J Trump supporter. President Trump had done a great job so far this term making America Great Again. And has announced running for a second term in 2020. Corporations and Jobs are coming back to America. Trump Tax Reform was a boost for many Americans. Though $1000 was crumb to some in Congress 😡

As a hobbyist i started Doc’s Place Computer Bulletin Board System (BBS) in 1991 that is the longest running Wildcat computer bulletin board system of it’s kind in the USA!

That old BBS still exists today after 28 years of providing Fidonet BBS Messaging to the public. Though the dial-up lines have been disconnected since around 1998.

Fidonet DoggyBeing a system operator (SysOp) as it was called back in the disk operating system days was a great way to learn about computers and communicating online. Those were fun times before the net took over. Check out our BBS Documentary Videos to learn more.

Our Net 3603 Sysop meetings were a blast. Monthly hangouts as a group shooting the breeze over lunch. Where to download the latest Desqview & QEMM etc.

My work background was repairing and selling used cars. Received my dealer license back in 1973. In 1999 i was the 1st Tampa Bay area car dealer to sell automobiles on eBay. That was some experience, good at first, but scams and fraud started chipping away at the founders cornerstone of trust. Auction fraud was overlooked as management stuffed their pockets full of cash, denying fraud existed!

Some of the older articles on this blog are about Internet car sales. Helping car dealers score more leads and sell more cars online, that i no longer do since retiring from the business. I do offer FREE general webmaster advice about Internet security, WordPress, SEO, and social media marketing.

As a hobbyist FidoSysop has evolved into one of the best internet webmasters online. We’ve sure came a long way since the early days without the Internet!

10 Thoughts to “About The Sysop And This Website”

    If anything should be free it should be free to our veterans. Not lazy people having more kids and living off my tax dollars. Or refusing to work. Plus I am all for drug testing too

    1. FidoSysop

      I agree. America provides the opportunity to become successful, and Donald Trump has brought us back from near destruction! Let’s give him another 4 years! 🇺🇸

    I can’t believe that there are still people who believe that Trump is good for America.
    These people are not seeing the whole picture. It is so sad.

    1. There are those that believe everything should be free.

      That’s usually said by people who are to lazy to work hard achieving the American dream.

      There’s no such thing as a free lunch, someone is always paying for it.

      Donald J. Trump will be easily re-elected in 2020 ❤️🇺🇲❤️

      What exactly is the reason you think Trump is totally bad for America? Hillary would have been way worse. I like how Trump is standing by his word. The Israeli’s are our friend and Trump shows them this is a fair nation to our allies. If not for Trump countries like China and Russia would run over Americans like we were fodder for their road to the heart of America. Just my 2C.

      If you identify yourself I’d do happy for you to educate us as to what you mean by the “whole picture”. I may not agree with you but would love to hear what you think I need to see.

      As you see, I’m not an internet warrior.

      1. FidoSysop

        Gilberto, thanks for your comment. Just some internet troll. Probably working for a reputation defending company. Just consider the source and ignore it.

    Hi,

    I am looking for a copy of the wcCODE 4.2 manual or programming guide. I have a copy of the wcCODE software and the help is okay, but I really need the manual. I have searched online and on ebay, but no luck. My copy was lost years ago. I am going to start up my old Wildcat 4.2 ML 10 BBS for a local community project and need to add some needed functionality and make customization’s to menu choices. Could you tell me where I might find one?

    1. Nope.. Especially V4x DOS, we upgraded to Wildcat V5 in 1998 or so, V5 didn’t have diddly for manuals.. Might try asking on the BBS in the Wildcat category.
