Nice one. I just had a look and logged in and registered myself on there. :)

Brings back some memories using a BBS again.

Wasn't around yesterday when you posted this, Flush. Is it still online?

I still like to do some telnetting now and again (for the nostalgia rush) and it's great to see people still running them and letting us wallow in ANSI screen heaven. :D

Finally got a third party Telnet client installed and registered on there this after. Great to see an 'active' BBS running again and this stuff looks great on a black background. ;)

Nice vibe!

Thanks for the nice comments. The board was online from 88-97 then I shut it down when I moved away. I hadn't touched an Amiga since 97 then I was home at my parents for the holidays this past year and found my old Amiga sitting in the attic. My mom had thrown away all my disks keyboard and mouse. After some searching on ebay I found some parts and got it up and running. So now we are now back from the dead after an 11 year absense.
