Deep Thought BBS focus is mainly on history, critical thinking, and a little bit of levity. There are some generalized and open forum type topics as well. But the focus is to bring like-minded people together in a smaller, more manageable community at a slower pace. Quality, not quantity.
3rd Times the Charm! Running on a vintage Pentium 2 at 400mhz with 128meg of ram and a 4gb CF card. Modem emulation is handled by a Raspberry Pi 3b+ running Fozztexx’s fork of tcpser Software. Still a very basic BBS, Has Trade Wars 2002 v309 and LORD 3.55. More to come, feel free to email me suggestions on the Board.
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 v5.40, Telnet, SSH and HTTP hosted on a Windows 10 Virtual Machine. 10 nodes, Networked with other WWIV boards and hosting some popular Door games like Tradewars, LORD, LORD2, PimpWars, BRE and Planets: TEOS. Drop on by for a visit! Auto-validation with limited access, e-mail SysOp for additional access.
