About The SysOp
Welcome To Doc’s Place BBS Blog – my tiny piece of the web. I’m just hanging out in cyberspace keeping up with tech and blogging about this and that. Never being bashful, I often shoot from the hip and say just what is on my mind without sugar-coating it.
This blog, web forum, and video servers 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 using this website.
I also have a very outgoing personality and frequently use a few colorful metaphors to describe something or someone. Thick skin is a suggested option around here.
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 crumbs to some 😡
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 27 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.

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. And general webmaster advice about seo and social media marketing.
As a hobbyist I’ve turned into one of the best internet webmasters online. Need FREE help with related problems? Contact me.
We’ve sure came a long way since the early days without the Internet!
