Heh! Now that I have calmed down..I do wish I had kept a separate dump of just bbs systems. For 2000 and 3000. And the multi user space war game.
Actually the 3000 full volume of everything I ever did or said was discovered in the garage at home 1 year or maybe more back.
The 800 bpi tapes for 2000 I knew I had somewhere. But onlyvtefound again last winter and... in reality it was a miracle they were saved.
We haveca Hp 918 that was recently put of service And a hp 37 that I assume that still bopys boots that were graciously contributed but the big stumbling block is. TAPEDRIVES! WELL.I HAVE A DDS-3 CART ON 918 BUT NO WORKEE WITH REEL TAPES @
I AM GETTING PRETTY. OLD NOW BUT IN THE FEW YEARS I HAVE LEFT WOULD LIKE TO GET BOTH BBS SYSTEMS BACK OUT THERE
THE 2000 VERSION HAD A REGULAR VERSION. THAT MIGRATED INTO A FANITSY THEMED VERSION BOTH SHOLD BE ON 800 bpi TAPE(This tape set had hardest storage conditions
The 3000 version should gave both converted versions of the 2000 bbs's. Plus The Forum/3000. massive even more and no non nonsense but even more massave in features and refinement.
Security is totally killer on all.There us no way I would be able to recreate these systems now due to some brain slowing but if you have not noticed I do not type well at all.. part coordination part tfu hand and finger movement( thanks to those who take time to decipher what I type ( I worked had to make this and previous message readable )
Anyway seems maybe easiest way is with simulators once we get a 800 1600 built tape drive on it..
As always any help ...ideas..hardware appreciated But keep in mind. Transfer has to take place HERE!Ed Sharpe archivist For SMECC
