Particles! BBS
==============, telnet://, telnet://

Been around since 1992... which is like, an eternity in computer-time.

What Is It?

It's a BBS running Centipede on a Commodore 128D with message bases dedicated to old computer goodness.
It's for all things old.. you don't need to own a Commodore computer to join in the fun.


[+] 10000s of files for the Commodore 64, Vic-20, 128, Plus/4 (NTSC), CP/M and GEOS
[+] 1000s of NTSC Plus/4 files with more being converted all the time.
[+] Over 100 file areas so far, still adding more
[+] 60+ online games (Empire, Nuke'Em, tons more)
[+] Lots of message bases with posts from some very interesting people.
[+] No seriously... people post. Stuff is talked about. It's pretty amazing.
[+] 1000s of text files online
[+] Home of the Electric Dreams Podcast (

Runs PETSCII, ANSI, ASCII, 40 columns, 80 columns so connect with whatever you want.

Speaking of connecting, connect from the website at if you don't have a terminal.

Useless Hardware Info:

Running on a Commodore 128D w/640K of RAM (which is enough for anyone)
Ports open at 38,400 so it flies. Ever seen an 8-bit transfer at 38.4K? Holy crap.
This is done with the magic of a Swiftlink RS232 adapter.
Punter, Multipunter, Ymodem, Xmodem xfers. Find one you like.
4GB CMD SCSI drive running off a Compact Flash card using a SCSI to CF adapter. Fast. For 8-bit.
