harlock: GoldSpider: And so went the sad sunset on the heyday of the BBS. Those were some fun times.Sure was. With the local boards we'd get together once a month "IRL"...was nice to actually meet people, make friends and find out who was behind the handles. It was real motley group of people of all ages and personalities, probably one of the most diverse group of humans you'll ever find, since the normal social prejudices were gone as we were only text handles, no pictures. There were drunken parties with plenty of good looking women, it wasn't just the stereotype 'nerd' logging on. A lot of high school kids, and then an older set of working professionals in Silicon Valley.
