Spot BBS

SPOT BBS is back after 30 years off line!

Originally an OPUS system running on a Columbia VP-1600 hotrodded with a V40 processor, high memory RAM disk, a monstrous 20MB Hard Drive and a Courier 9600 HST Modem, the modern SPOT is on a MintBox Linux Mint 20.1 fanless PC running Mystic v1.12.

Access is Telnet port 1123, ssh port 1122 and http port 8888

MysticBBS has been minimalized by cr1mson at to meet the streamlined feel of the original SPOT BBS Opus board.

Gopher access and the Mystic Relay Chat (MRC) are off the main menu.

Current have fsxNet, FidoNet, SpookNet, WhipserNet, LegionNet, FishingNet, DoveNet, The Quantum Wormhole and VK Radio Net echomail access.

Login with your Amateur Radio (Ham) call sign or leave the Sysop a note, and you will upgraded above regular user access.

Cold Fusion BBS

you can also call with Telnet/SSL on port 992!

ZOC  supports Telnet/SSL by default. (highly recommended!)
SyncTERM nightly builds also support Telnet/SSL. (Listed as “TelnetS” under Connection Type)
bear in mind nightly builds are meant for testing and might be rough around the edges.

cold fusion is back after a (rather long) hiatus! lots of great artwork from all my friends in the ansi art scene, lots of cool games, message networks, and hopefully, lots of new (or returning) users!

all the old standbys are there: lord, barren realms elite, doormud, and if you love to fish in minecraft (i sure know i do!) you will definitely enjoy freshwater fishing! i don’t even fish in real life!

we also carry the following message networks:

  • fsxNet (21:1/616)
  • FidoNet (1:120/616)
  • DOVE-Net

call now!

here’s a pic of the bbs with it’s co-sysop seymour:

Radio Freqs and Geeks BBS

Are you a Ham Radio Operator? Comic Book reader? Like playing with electronics and 3D printing? Is your motto “Make America 8 Bit Again“!? What about RPGs, Pop Culture and Coding? Does “DOGE Coin to the Moon!” make your heart skip a beat? Then this BBS is one you may want to put in your phone book. Because that is what we are all about. Not just comics from the Big 2, but IGG and Kickstarter projects as well. How about some PDFs on antenna design for a weekend project? Maybe you need a one page dungeon for a quick game with friends? Has DOGE Coin hit a dollar yet? All that and more is what we are looking to have available on Radio Freqs & Geeks. I’m working on trying to make this BBS have some great content and offer some neat things not found on other BBSes right now. Stop by, have a look and let me know what’s missing! This BBS runs on a Raspberry Pi3 using Mystic BBS software.
