Not quite a BBS, but I had my os9 system running over the web via DW
using "Telnet BBS Server V1.4a. I offered it up to the list. Had a
couple people log in to it. But all I got was negative feedback pretty
much saying that I was wasting my time.... nobody interested. One person
said why the hell would I do that when I can use my pc which is much
faster, better, etc etc.
Personally I think it's a good idea, and doable now without having to
re-program anything. I guess half the fun is making it work. Good luck
to you. If you get one going, I will log in. :-)
Seems the list is good at dissing stuff, but not so good at
encouragement. A bunch of grumpy old farts... he he :-)
