The Rats Nest BBS used a custom BBS program called RATSoft_XE which was the predecessor to the RATSoft ST BBS software.

I wonder if the BBS used phreak codes for the "auto callback" feature...  ?


Also I know PCP is short for PC Pursuit. So, the BBS was not PC-Pusuitable. But I don't remember Starlink.

After a quick Google Search, I see the 28-Feb-89 #146 issue of Z*Magazine explains the service. It's similar to PCP.


info on StarLink (and yes, I know this post is ancient lol)


Back in the day, I had an account on Telenet (not to be confused with telnet which is a terminal utility) ran by Sprint.  This network when it existed in the US allowed people with computer modems to call into their network and connect via their packet network to another city where one can use the modem in that city to call BBS's or computer systems local to that area code (PC Pursuit).  Tymnet had a similar service around the time they discontinued PC Pursuit entitled Starlink.
