The Hackaday BBS

It's as though Eternal September never happened.

Hackaday needs a BBS. I'll host one.

And because I suffer from a near-terminal case of "Not Invented Here Syndrome", I'm coding it from scratch too.

Enjoy this project?

You might laugh… but I still have a modem even the 14.4kbps one that was once our Internet connection… and a phone line.  And yes, I have used said 14.4kbps modem this century, so I know it works.

No worries.  Just write a virtual modem that works on top of VOIP.

Bulletin Board System ?... My first use was back in 1978 or so. Prior to the internet  that we all know and love ;-) My first modem was acoustic at 300 baud with about 5 or 6 other users on the local BBS for our area ( South Florida ) I don't know, think the current stack and message area on HaD works fairly well for most of what a BBS did in those days :-)

what is a bbs?

Like Facebook… but instead of HTML/JavaScript/CSS delivered over HTTP and TCP/IP; it's VT100 and ANSI graphics delivered over dial-up modem.

  Are you sure? yes | no
