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/.

Particles! BBS is a retro-themed BBS, running on retro-themed hardware. However, when we started in 1992, we weren’t retro… the world has just started catching up to us now 🙂 We’re running on a Commodore 128D, with 640K of RAM (which should be enough for anyone….). Also:
- 50,000+ Commodore 64, 128, CP/M, Vic-20, Plus/4 files (PAL and NTSC), GEOS, MODs and more!
- Retro Usenet – read messages like it’s 1985!
- Usenet – Yup, a Commodore BBS running Usenet. I wrote the module, so I know it works 😉
- Doors doors doors.. Everything from Empire to … wait, there’s other stuff besides Empire?
- Active! That’s a rarity. Since we re-rolled the board in August 2014, we just rolled over 38,000 calls, 25,000 messages, and over 900 users.
Borderline BBS was brought online in January 2014 as a dial-up only BBS. Telnet-accessibility has been added, making it the first BBS running on a C64 with a “hybrid setup” allowing both dial-up and Telnet calls.
