To my knowledge, this is the only BBS currently running in South Africa. It was created largely with the members of the “Vintage Computing and Console Group of South Africa” Facebook group in mind, and as such, is partially intended as an unofficial BBS for that group. Anyone is welcome to join though. BBS is still somewhat under construction, but more stuff will be added to it in time. Currently there is a large library of MOD music files, and a few DOS games and applications.
The BBS server itself is a “vintage” 233 MHz Pentium II, with 128 MB of RAM, running Windows 98:
Storm BBS is running Mystic and is active on FSXnet, but is most interesting for a few unique enhancements — daily calendar ANSIs, custom ANSI menus, an interstitial of lightning bolts, and a Storm BBS LORD game that has characters that were made back in 1995.
Storm BBS also hosts files for KBBS, which was an old commercial BBS software abandoned in the late ’90s.
