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, Google, Facebook, eBay 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,
Marc
SysOp, Sursum Corda! BBS

This all seems very nostalgic and even useful. I would want a BBS
account with pop3 / smtp email. How and where would I get it?
