The only UK based BBS?


Recommended Posts

I have received yesterday Atari 1030 modem from ebay and I wanted to find out if it is still working. I must admit that I never had any modem back in 80's. It took me few hours to finally get it working. On internet I found a list of USA/Canada Dial-Up BBS's.

Didn't know there were ANY left. Back in the day, I used to run my parent's phone bill through the roof dialling around the UK. After you've pillaged the local BBSs for software, you need to cast your net further.


I used to DREAD the phone-bill coming in coz I just KNEW I was in for yet another ear-bashing. I'm sure they'd've taken my mode away from me if they could work out which bit of kit it actually was! :D
