Silicon Underground

SiliconUnderground, located in Rochester, NY.

In the late eighties through the nineties the BBS ran using multiple BBS packages and was part of Fidonet and one of the co-founders of StormNet. I owned PCBoard and WildCat! commercial licensed versions but could never settle on one package. Alan Jurison was a co-author of T.A.G. and I started to use that as I had a local support base. I always saw Synchronet in Boardwatch and other magazines and really liked it. I had the demo but by the time I was going to switch and purchase it, I moved on and shut down the BBS.

For mail network software I used FrontDoor and that is still my favorite. Now I use binkd as my mailer and hope to switch to FrontDoor soon as Joaquim Homrigausen is “rebooting” it. I am waiting for native telnet and binkp support.

I currently run a couple other BBS Packages as well:

Synchronet: siliconu.com:26
