The worlds only Android BBS?

Probably.

This is what happens when you are stuck in the past and have a few hours to kill.

You can even try it out for yourself if you like (over the next day or two I guess) - and just like a real old school BBS, its only available certain hours - the hours in which my phone is near my wifi. Unlike the old days however, trying to connect when the BBS isn't running wont result in an irate person answering the phone!

Yes. I am crazy.

Its not a true BBS if there's no carrier screeching from the modem, or waking up some granny at 1:00am as Telemate dials through all your "BBS" phonelist to connect to something that might have a Night Owl or Walnut Creek software library installed to sponge off. :wink:

But very cool! I'll grab a TTY package and give it a whirl some time (I'm just downloading PuTTY (I think its the one you were using in your video when I squinted my eyes tight :lol: ))
