Welcome to The great, great wall BBS! A system that was created for fun and experimentation. This is also to my knowledge, the only BBS currently running in South Africa. It is located in Pinetown, Kwazulu-Natal, and runs on a 66 MHz 486DX, with 8 MB of RAM and a 20 GB hard drive (configured using WD’s Ez-Drive). The system runs the Worldgroup BBS software, and is connected directly to the Internet through an Ethernet card, via a packet driver.

This BBS is still under construction, so things are going to feel somewhat incomplete compared to other boards, but more content should be coming soon. One of my plans for this board is to have a large amount of vintage software available for download in the file section, so that people with serial WiFi modem devices can easily download software directly onto their systems. BBS currently has a library of over 4,000 MOD music files for download. I may also include other files of historical value and interest, such as a mirror of textfiles.com’s library, or something similar.

For the record, this system’s name is an inside joke, and is not in any way associated with any political views whatsoever.

Sysop of this system is RetroM (aka: 44CT232 on YouTube), and co-sysop is themaritimegirl (also on YouTube). We hope you have fun and enjoy your stay!
