• Dial-up BBS

    From J.B. Wood@3:770/3 to All on Monday, April 01, 2019 06:48:34
    Hello, all. Is anyone still operating a dial-in BBS for CBM platforms (presumably out of a love for retro things)? Is there a list of working
    phone numbers available? My C-64 is still fully operational along with
    2 1541 disk drives. (No, that's not my everyday computer.) Might be
    nice to fire up that 1670 modem once again that I used for so long with Q-Link/AOL. Thanks for your time and comment. Sincerely,
    --

    While most are available via Telnet or SSH, some have real phone lines.

    As another option, you can get one of these for your C64: http://www.cbmstuff.com/proddetail.php?prod=WiModemOLED
    which will let you access Telnet BBSs from your C64.

    Have you tried connecting to cottwoodbbs lately?
    I tried 12/3/2022 with a connect error, which means the BBS is offline.

    I'm wondering if anyone has a status of BALBAZAAR and his systems?

    ... There is an exception to every rule, except this one.
