Basement Theory

Update, August 2020: The Basement Theory has returned to “public status,” open to all.

The Basement Theory is a re-envisioning of the dial-up BBS I ran in the 1990s. Originally running in the local-calling area for Scioto County, Ohio and northern Greenup County, Kentucky, The Basement Theory existed under three BBS names: The Cool (1993-94), The Basement Theory (1994-96), and A Saucerful of Secrets (1996-97). “The Basement Theory” is surely the most remembered name by the old users, and is why it’s the “new” name, today.

The current version of The Basement Theory borrows from old backups of the original BBS to create its theme and attitude. Much of the old data is available to view or download from the BBS. In fact, the current ANSI menus are the same ones as used on the BBS in September 1995, according to the file dates of the backed-up ANSIs.

There is also a history of “modern” activity. Having originally gone public in 2017 (with private users for years before), there is an extensive “local” community of regulars who populate the forums and door games. Even during the times the BBS stopped advertising for new users, many of these old users continued regular use.

Finally, there are several archival projects available to users, such as the Animation File Archival Project (GL/FLI/DL) and the Exec-PC Graphics Archive.

So, why not come join the community? Now that the board is open to the public again, accepting new users with full access on first login, I hope you’ll help write the next chapter in the BBS’s history. Visit The Basement Theory today!

Note: SSH Port is 2618, an homage to the final digits of The Basement Theory’s 1990s telephone number. Telnet port is the standard 23.

Final Zone BBS

Final Zone BBS is a Bulletin Board System focused on conversation about vintage technology, gaming, and the like with a goal of being a kind of haven away from the typical “noise” of social media – the memes, the emoji, the trends, the flood of meaningless “me too” posts, and all of the “flavor of the week” mess that makes social media almost useless to some of us.

As stated above, the board has a heavy focus on technology and gaming, but open discussion about virtually whatever is welcome. The goal is to focus on the conversation and the sharing of information and to have fun while doing it. Additionally, uploads and sharing of interesting files or programs relevant to these topics is encouraged, within reason.

Email service is also provided which is fully compatible with older machines — this can be used for many purposes, from just normal communication to file transfers from modern machines to vintage computers that cannot handle the modern web.

The BBS runs on Synchronet and is connected to DOVE-Net for those interested in networked communications. Otherwise it is purely focused on local chat. Additionally, the IRC client built in to the system will connect you to the ##bbs-squad channel on freenode, where members of this board often chat in real time. It is a small but close knit community, one that welcomes new members who share a love of tech and gaming.

The board supports multiple login methods, such as  plain telnet, SSH, rlogin, and even NNTP and read-only Gopher access (depending on client used.)
