    What was your first computer that you ran Synchronet BBS on?

    The first computer I ran Synchronet on was an Athlon (Barton) 2700xp, in an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe motherboard. For some reason I still have that motherboard box in my closet holding random stuff.
    The first computer I ran a BBS on (which unfortunately wasn't Synchronet) was a Turbo XT IBM clone with 1200 baud modem.

    What was your first computer that you ran Synchronet BBS on?

    I think I *might* have run it on a really crusty old Thinkpad, something in the 380 series, around 2006 - 2007. Wasn't a very serious effort, though.

    After that, it was on some Compaq Pentium III workstation from around 2008 to 2010. I think I still have a hard drive around here with "ECBBS" written on it in marker, which I pulled before putting that box out at the curb.

    The first computer I ran Synchronet on was one of my desktop PCs which I had built myself, which I think had an AMD Athlon processor and was running Windows XP (it was 2007).

    What was your first computer that you ran Synchronet BBS on?


    My first attempt was on an used IBM NetVista PIII running Windows XP. It was the mid to late 2000s. I had to take it down as my ISP didn't like users running servers on restdintial accounts (cough, cough, Comcast, cough). I still have that system in my closet collecting dust. Was going to pull the floppy dring, but it has a lock on the case. I don't remmeber where I put the key. Time to pull out the good old dremel.

    I can't resist computers that clients offered me. I was given a little toaster-looking HP Pavilion, circa 2004. It was a couple of years old, when all computers had to have CD cubbies and clear doors over the optical drives and two-tone cases with wings, and proprietary speakers that hung off of a monitor in a matching two-tone scheme. That thing had 512mb of RAM, a 500
    mhz celeron and ATA-33 drives. But, it ran the BBS perfectly for the next 7 years.

    PCs with proprietary parts always bugged me. In early high school, I had a friend who had a Packard Bell computer (a popular model at the time), and the most obvious thing was its proprietary case. It had a horizontal case, and one time we were looking inside it, and I saw it had a riser board for the expansion cards to be installed horizontally rather than vertically, and if I remember right, it also had an expansion card that was a modem and sound card in one. I thought it was pretty weird.

    My Packard Bell 486DX 50 was *exactly* like this. I really liked that case too, but it was impossible to upgrade with standard parts.

    Riser cards have been around since the 8088 days. The sound card/ modem you mentioned had a voicemail feature and software to use it as an answering machine. I had a winmodem which came with similar software.

    PCs with proprietary parts always bugged me.

    I bought a very early, used Dell pentium for the HD (it was cheaper to buy
    the used PC than to get a HD that size at the time!) and also tried using
    it for a while as a homemade router. It had a daughterboard in it. The
    thing I cannot remember now was whether or not that daughterboard held the peripheral cards, or if it held the CPU.

    At any rate for a while they were also bad about having proprietary parts,
    like in the PCs they made to try to "compete" with the MAC... they were a monitor and PC in one case.

    I have to admit, I may be thinking of Digital, though. In the mist of time
    I get those confused. :)

    I remember seeing some Windows PCs like that in the late 90s & early 2000s. In the late 90s, there was one particular Windows PC I remember seeing in stores that was an all-in-one that used translucent blue & white plastic and looked a lot like Apple's new iMac at the time. I remember hearing Apple sued that company because their PCs looked too much like their iMac, and they won, and the company making those PCs had to stop selling them.

    The first Computer I ran Synchronet on was a IBM Netfinity 3500 M10 8655, with a 233mhz PII processor, using Synchronet 3.13A, that was in 2005. Before then I ran GAP and RA. I started the BBS in 1990 using a Tandy TX 1000 which I bought brand new for Radio SHack. It's been one hell of a ride, but very enjoyable. I'm still running Synchronet to this day. One fine piece of software. Another bit of history for valhalla is that I started the bbs back in the 1990 using Telex Host, but soon afterword switch to GAP.

    No, it wasn't 1994. It was in the late 90s, when Apple had started making the newer translucent iMacs. As someone else mentioned, it was eMachines. I looked it up, and it was the eMachines eOne, which they were selling in 1999:

    Terminate had a mini bbs-like system people could dial into. Once I discovered Terminate, I never used another terminal system until I moved to Linux.


    I know there's a copy of it (It's like 2-3 floppy disks) laying around on BBSes, I almost want to fire it up and tinker with it again. I can't for the life of me remember why I loved it so much.

    I loved the file manager in it. Very handy. "The Final Datacoms Terminal".

    hahahahah, Telix Host! I forgot all about that "bbs" Telix
    included with their terminal app, written in "SALT" (Script
    Application Language for Telix).

    I tried using that briefly and let someone call my PC in the
    early 90s. I remember it looked interesting, but it didn't seem
    full-featured enough to run a full BBS with it.

    It wasn't, but that didn't stop me from trying. :-)

    It was called (very originally) "The Pirate's Cove". After I quickly
    replaced it with WWIV (and named the BBS "Vertrauen"), I
    recall one user asking me: hey when are you going to put back The
    Pirate's Cove, I really liked that! <blink> --
