Abacus BBS now located in Portland is a rebirth of my Abacus system run in Boston in the late 90’s. Abacus currently features both FidoNet and FsxNet echomail and file bases. Doors are going to make a return soon.
Attempted running my BBS on a new Raspberry Pi Zero W…but being a Linux noob and not currently able to figure out several issues with connecting…went back to Windows 7. Currently…am a member of fsxNet/WWIVNet/SciNet/FidoNet/MicroNet/VKRadio/Door Party.
Since going back to Windows 7 from Raspbian on the Pi Zero…all of my doors are running in Door Party and Quazar’s Game Server. This allows me to be able to have almost 200 doors from old DOS text adventures to common BBS standards from TW2002 and my favorite…Bordelo without spending time attempting to get DOS x86 doors working and most/all of them being registered.
My shameful BBS plug!

Kindly visit using a capable terminal such as Syncterm(recommended and free!) or Netrunner. Windows default telnet, mTelnet, etc are NOT supported and will give you errors and mangle the artwork. This board offers an optional Classic Mode for Amiga and retro terminals that disables the unique animation system and affects some text placement as well. Our new user process is needlessly excessive and is about to undergo an overhaul. For now power through it- it’s worth it!

The System Operator’s primary motivation in running this BBS is to have fun in retro computing. He exerted effort to make this BBS give you a mid-1990’s BBSing experience. FsxNet and Fidonet echo mail areas are available here. Popular door games such as (but not limited to) LORD, LORD2, Global War, etc., can be played here.
“That’s one of the best BBS logos ever made.” – Hawk Hubbard, sysop of Black Flag (The World’s Most Dangerous BBS)
Due to abuse of the system by a user who apparently has nothing better to do than troll bulletin boards, we’ve had to implement a rotating new user password.

Alcoholiday BBS! Est. 1995, reborn in 2001, and born yet again in 2015. Running Mystic on a Raspberry Pi 2, a dozen message nets, three stylish themes (custom art by Blocktronics, Impure and more). “The online cyber keg party.”
Alcoholiday is not an “art board” per se, but a board that appreciates good art — both of the “Amiga ASCII” and CP437 ANSI variety. Our main theme is called “Danger Girl” and is inspired by deadly women of comic books.
“The West Gate” is Alcoholiday’s more mystical alter-ego, based on the symbolism of Freemasonry, and is available as a theme at login. We also have a “Minimal” theme that is purely ASCII-based for ease of use with non-ANSI terminal clients, and limited mobile apps.
Alcoholiday has very few file areas, as we believe the spirit of the traditional bulletin board is within its message bases. However we are an official iMPURE Ascii distribution site, and we do feature a handful of unique file bases for retro esotericism.
We suggest Netrunner or Syncterm for the best experience. Both clients will automagically change fonts so ASCII resembles its traditional Amiga font, and ANSI blocks are represented properly. The browser-based terminal below will also work, but results may vary.
Alcoholiday wouldn’t exist without the help and support of a few folks: Caphood, Jack Phlash, Griskokare, Luciano, g00r00, Avon, Metalhead, Gryphon, H7, Skuz, Shooter, Weatherman, and many others.
Be sure to follow Alcoholiday on Twitter @alcoholidaybbs as I post all sorts of BBS-related stuff there.

Alpha Centauri is my nostalgic attempt to have my first WWIV board up and running. Currently there has been a resurrection of WWIVnet and it is operational and networked with more than 12 other WWIV boards at this time. If you are interested in technical conversation about WWIV software, this is the place. Also have some door games up and running for those who like to play as well. Just be aware this is on port 2002.
Based in Dunedin, New Zealand this BBS is a reincarnation of a system that operated from Hamilton, New Zealand around 1993-1995.
Back in 1995 Agency BBS used Renegade BBS software and was a member of several message networks including RGSNet, FidoNet, DemiMonde and LocNet.
These days the BBS runs using Mystic BBS software and is active in the fsxNet message network. Mystic is cool software that is still actively under development. The sysop (Avon) is happy to help new users set this software up for themselves should they be interested.
Agency BBS aims to cater for users worldwide who would like to experience and enjoy a bit of retro ‘old school’ technology that’s still alive and well in today’s Internet / website / email etc. dominated world.
Archaic Binary is an easy to use BBS open to the public. Lots to do! I have created the majority of doors myself, tools available for playing around. Door games locally and via game networks. We have active message areas, local and networked. Advanced security available with SyncTERM using SSH (username/password in SyncTERM is archaic/binary, you will authenticate later), Two Factor Authentication on accounts, SFTP Access available to files.
Custom Doors like; Your Local Weather, Reddit Reader, Justice Stats & Crime Stats from DoJ, NASA Astronaut Photo of the Day, Live Data from Religion of Peace, BBS Listings pulled monthly from “The Telnet BBS Guide”, Torrent Searching, and USCCA Stories, and Small Pastebin door that allows public and private pastes.
Some doors are integrated with access via HTTPS (USCCA, Pastebins, etc…) links are generated with my home-made link shorting service, Archaic.Link
Home of ArchaicNET the public BBS File Sharing Network.
No need for archaic ZModem/XModem/YModem protocols on Archaic Binary, instead “HTTPmodem” will generate short links and allow you to download files over HTTP/HTTPS. Legacy protocols are still available for expert users.

Archaic Binary is also home to some free BBS door/binary releases: https://www.archaicbinary.net/releases
