Death of the BBS Countdown:
It can be difficult to pry oneself away from a high-speed internet connection to slum it in modem-land. Does anybody even care anymore? If you care, mail updates and additions with relevant info to .
We still care. Sort of. When you consider the commercialized, government regulated, privacy-invading state that the Internet is currently in, it makes one wonder if BBS's might not still have practical uses. At the very least, how many of you still even know how to use a modem? How many of you have never used one? Playing with BBS's is a novel way to practice your terminal skills, AT commands, dial strings, and scripting with your modem. It might get you interested in exploring other systems that still have dial-ins. There are still plenty of systems connected to modems and you wouldn't believe some of the stuff that is out there waiting to be discovered.
Otherwise, really, it's just a short trip down memory lane.
