New Member & New BBS...
« on: July 19, 2010, 03:55:01 PM »
Just stopping in to say hello.  Trying to refresh my old memories of the Amiga.  I also placed up a classic Amiga BBS running CNet Pro.  Would like to welcome everyone to check it out. http://telnet://bbs.dxrw.org

Here is a little background on it...

Clarksville Tennessee has a nick name of the Queen City. In 1991 on a  C=64 Queen City BBS was born. It survived as it grew to the C=128 then  an A1000 then an A500 before its death in 1995 when AOL (those bastards)  got the internet kick going. Then in 2003, Queen City was Re-Born!  Running the Classic CNet BBS and it lasted for about 2 years. Now in  2010 its renamed and back up for business and housed in Dover, TN.  Running on an Commodore Amiga emulator and running the classic CNet Pro  v3.05c BBS program.  RoF has Message bases, games and warez!  Please  join Reign of Fire BBS.

Nice to see another BBS up.  Just wondering, any idea where a guy can pick up the latest version of CNet?  I've heard it runs fine on OS 4.1, but I've tried multiple times over the past year to contact the author to buy the latest CNet and have not got so much as a reply.  I'm an old Cnet v3.x sysop but can't find my old Cnet disks, not that they'd help me much on the floppy diskless SAM I have.  Currently running a mix of Zeus and DLG BB/OS on my BBS, but they have some ugly issues with 4.1 :/

Thanks, will have to check your system out asap!  Seems a lot of us old BBS junkies are getting back into running systems.

Good work, having just bought an A2065 for my A2000 I should be online with my Amiga pretty soon (as soon as I can find time to set it up!). So will be sure to check it out.

How are you running networking on the Amiga emulator?
And, which emulator?

Cheers,
Matt.

I am using WinUAE.  I owned two Amigas in the past, and one day when I can get back on my feet, I will own one again.  Until then, I am using WinUAE, CNet/3 and Telnetd.device to take calls.  Hope to see ya on there soon!

That was great, i didn't go through the entire registration process, but it sure reminded me of the old days on the BBS's!

BTW, I ran a BBS back in 1985, on an Atari 800, using a 300bps modem that didn't even have it's own ring detector - the ring detector was home built and when it discovered a ring, simulated pressing the 'fire' button on the joystick port.

hah, you'd think I was such a big computer geek that I went into IT right away, but I didn't...for some odd reason I put computers away for quite a few years.

Of course that'll never happen again :)

p.s. it was "The Free World BBS" out of Springfield, Mo, woo hoo!

Runequester, I don't care what you use to call.  Having active users is just what SysOp's like!!!

MarkTime, you should finish registering.  Check out the on-line games...  got some good ones like Wheel of Fortune, Empire and TradeWars.  I even got some Fred Fish CD's on-line.

I would love to own a new Amiga, but I can't afford it.  No place to put it in my small trailer.  Donations are always welcomed!  You should see the INFO file on my BBS.  :)
