What Is This BBS Of Which You Speak?


I got some mail the other day that blew me away. I was asked if I was the same person who used to run the BIO BBS years ago. I told him "guilty as charged"! Only I'd called it BIO Feedback BBS and I was at the helm for 10 long years. I also called myself "Momma Bear"..... because my late husband called me "Teddy Bear" and I wanted to make it absolutely clear to my "users" that I was a mom and a married lady and not some pimply, horny 13-year-old boy posing as a hot babe. You laugh, but lots of kids did that very same thing back then! You got better "access" if you were female (even old like me!) because there just weren't that many gals online. I had a ball too. I ate all that attention up with a spoon and asked for more. I "met" a lot of great guys and some of them I'm still in touch with. Heck, one of them, ("Osprey"), even became my son-in-law!

You can actually download a C64 emulator (http://www.viceteam.org/) and relive those glory days. Of course, you'd have to round up all of the great people who made it the experience it was. And find a 300 baud modem. And spend hours 'tweaking' the code to customize it the way you wanted. And live with the bugs, which the Green brothers (the guys who wrote ICE BBS) said weren't there.

Never mind. A blog is much easier...

Would you believe I still have one of my Commies and a drive and a monitor? Can you say "clutterer"? I knew you could...

The Cubs are doing great! Thanks for asking. I have links on the left to 2 out of the 3's activities. So good to hear from you again too!
