A revival of the original … used to run approximately between 1984-1990. Recently reopened, with plans to have Linked Doors, and very large collection of CD shareware files, Abandonware OSes and utils/games, WWIVnet and more coming soon!
The Wretched Beagle was originally set up in 1993 in Traverse City Michigan running WWIV 4.24 on a 386/25 notebook computer.
The current incarnation was set up in 2014 on linux and is primarily a test system to help with developing WWIV 5 Since it’s running the latest bleeding-edge WWIV5.3, things are likely rough around the edges. It’s mostly stock (because content gets overwritten a lot), but you are welcome to stop by and check out the message bases.
SSH works, but only via SyncTERM
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.
The Blood Stone rises again!!! The BS BBS began its adventure on a Commodore C64 back in the mid-1980s and later evolved into a WWIV system in the 1990s. Family became the priority so the Blood Stone was laid to rest for the remainder of the 20th century. Now, nearly two decades later, the kids have grown the family dynamic has evolved and it’s now time to revisit the fun hobby of BBSing again! Running WWIV v5.00, Telnet only at this time, hosted on an XP OS in a virtual Hyper-V environment. 5 nodes, Networked with other WWIV boards and hosting some popular Door games like Tradewars, LORD, LORD2, PimpWars, BRE and Planets: TEOS.
