Someone Blow the Dust Off!

Someone blow the dust off this server. I’m here to post something. I never knew a site could be so slow. I feel like I’m living in the 90’s logging onto websites over a phone line. Anyway, it took me so long to get here I forgot what I wanted to write about… … … … Oh yea! My BBS. A few months ago I decided to put up another BBS. Same one I ran in the 90’s only on a modern system. The board is called “Havens BBS”. You can reach it by telnet to havens.synchro.net port 23 or you can use https://havens.synchro.net. The board is connected to many “nets” such as Dovenet, Retronet, and Micronet among others. It’s great to be back to running a BBS. It can be frustrating sometimes but nothing feels better when I can get it to work. I’m running Synchronet BBS for Linux on a Ubuntu Server. It has some glitches but nothing I can’t handle. The ANSI screens can be difficult as I am not an artist. All in all it’s been a rewarding experience so far. The user base is no where near the way it was back in the 90’s but considering the timeline I can’t believe the amount of people there are still using a BBS.
