Basement Theory

Update, August 2020: The Basement Theory has returned to “public status,” open to all.

The Basement Theory is a re-envisioning of the dial-up BBS I ran in the 1990s. Originally running in the local-calling area for Scioto County, Ohio and northern Greenup County, Kentucky, The Basement Theory existed under three BBS names: The Cool (1993-94), The Basement Theory (1994-96), and A Saucerful of Secrets (1996-97). “The Basement Theory” is surely the most remembered name by the old users, and is why it’s the “new” name, today.

The current version of The Basement Theory borrows from old backups of the original BBS to create its theme and attitude. Much of the old data is available to view or download from the BBS. In fact, the current ANSI menus are the same ones as used on the BBS in September 1995, according to the file dates of the backed-up ANSIs.

There is also a history of “modern” activity. Having originally gone public in 2017 (with private users for years before), there is an extensive “local” community of regulars who populate the forums and door games. Even during the times the BBS stopped advertising for new users, many of these old users continued regular use.

Finally, there are several archival projects available to users, such as the Animation File Archival Project (GL/FLI/DL) and the Exec-PC Graphics Archive.

So, why not come join the community? Now that the board is open to the public again, accepting new users with full access on first login, I hope you’ll help write the next chapter in the BBS’s history. Visit The Basement Theory today!

Note: SSH Port is 2618, an homage to the final digits of The Basement Theory’s 1990s telephone number. Telnet port is the standard 23.

Basement BBS

The Basement BBS was originally online from 1986 – 1998. The version that you can now telnet to was pieced together with backup floppy disks from 1990-1993. The BBS includes restored messages/message bases from 1990-1993, some restored file sections, 21 online games, and lots of customization. For best results, log in with an Atari 8-bit or a telnet client that supports ATASCII (Atari Mode). One such client is Syncterm. Syncterm is available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS/X, etc. You can download Syncterm here.

The Basement’s telnet address is: basementbbs.ddns.net port: 9000.

If you rather not use a telnet client, then you can log in using a web client available at: www.sfhqbbs.org/telnet-basement.php

Note: The web client below does not work with The Basement. You  need to use the aforementioned web client.

Update: Our web page is now available at http://basementbbs.ddns.net:7000/.
