==============, 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.


[+] 1000s of files for the Commodore 64, Vic-20, 128, Plus/4, CP/M and GEOS
[+] Over 90 file areas so far, still adding more
[+] 60+ online games (Empire, Nuke'Em, tons more)
[+] Lots of message bases

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.
