From 1991 Into 2016 Doc’s Place BBS has provided a home for Fidonet Network Bulletin Board System Callers. Our dial up lines are long gone but were still online via telnet and the www.

We System Operator’s (SysOp’s) as it was called back in the old DOS and Desqview days were the early online communication pioneers of the era.
Using personal computers and dial up modems, we relayed early Electronic Mail (Echomail) worldwide via the Fidonet Network, that still exists today.
This website is a treasure trove of early communications history. Have a look around using our navigation menu above, or try our custom search engine.
An excellent resource of fidonet echomail messages dating back to 2002 is being maintained by Andrew Clarke. See bbsmates.com for bbs listings.
Newer operating systems (OS) and web browsers are make bbsing a challenge in 2016. But despite the challenges many faithful old time callers still exist today.
