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

When the majority of dial up bulletin board systems went offline after the Internet’s public rollout. Doc’s Place BBS shined like a homing beacon in cyberspace offering faithful bbs callers a new home via telnet and world wide web.

Doc’s Place BBS is the longest running Wildcat bulletin board system of it’s kind in the USA! You can check it out here.

We System Operator’s (SysOp’s) as it was called back in the old Disk Operating System (DOS) days were the early online communication pioneers of that era. Using personal computers and dial up modems we relayed early Electronic Mail (Echomail) worldwide via the Fidonet Network, that still exists today and is quite active. 🙂

Being a SysOp was a great way to learn about computers and communicating online. Plus i have met a lot of nice people worldwide through the BBS. Whatever happened to the good old days??

An archive of Fidonet Echomail messages dating back to 2002 is being maintained by Andrew Clarke. This is an excellent source of Fidonet history.
