The Number 1 Hobbyist Operated NO FAKE NEWS Independent Blog in all of Cyberspace! Doc AKA FidoSysop is an early dos days computer bulletin board system operator (Sysop) turned net guru, hanging out in cyberspace keeping up with tech. This sites content is my ‘personal opinion’ as well as any guest comments and forum posts. Freedom of speech and freedom of the press is everyone’s 1st Amendment Right provided by the U.S. Constitution when accessing this site. 😉
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.
Being 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.
Doc’s place bbs running under Windows 2K Pro with several callers online in 2005. It’s still online today. Wanna check it out? Use GUEST for username and password.
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!
