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 :-)
