Particles! BBS
==============, 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.


[+] 75,000+ files for the Commodore 64, Vic-20, 128, Plus/4 (NTSC/PAL), CP/M
[+] Constantly expanding MOD files area
[+] Large (100s of disk images) of GEOS/Wheels files
[+] 1000s of NTSC Plus/4 files with more being converted all the time.
[+] Over 200 file areas so far, still adding more
[+] 80+ online games (Empire, Nuke'Em, tons more)
[+] Lots of message bases with posts from some very interesting people.

The board is actually active as well.. pretty rare for 2019.

New! Retro Usenet feed - read Usenet as if it was 1985. Serving up 20 message bases.
More upon request.

New! Usenet feed. Only Commodore 128 BBS with Usenet. Reading Usenet via phosphur is the only way to do it.

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.
