Hello all!

Take a break from the internet's automated madness. Slow down,
sit back and log into one of the BBSes advertised in this group.

Before HTTP, WWW, WAIS, Gopher, Archie, or any of the internet stuff
people take for granted now, BBSes were moving people's messages and
files. We still do WITHOUT the spam. We do it without the glitz.
We are real people at the keyboards -- not autoresponder robots!

Never done it before? Need help? JUST ASK! Almost any BBS you
call into will have a System Operator (SysOp) that would be happy
to help you navigate the BBS environment.

Best regards,
SysOp, Sursum Corda! BBS
Huntsville, AL - USA

I was trying to connect telnet to server you wrote above but had no success (read my logs):
```oleksiibondarenko@oleksiibondarenko:~$ telnet
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
oleksiibondarenko@oleksiibondarenko:~$ Hello

Command 'Hello' not found, did you mean:

command 'hello' from snap hello (2.10)
command 'hello' from deb hello (2.10-2ubuntu2)
command 'hello' from deb hello-traditional (2.10-5)

See 'snap info <snapname>' for additional versions.


Please give my some advice how to connect bbs to get advices regards US stock market directions for particular period of time. (if that is possible)
