Calling all Commodore Dial up modem users! BBS

Recommended Posts

After a lengthy hiatus, I recently started calling dial-up BBSs, and I wanted to give a shout-out to the only dial-up (telnet also) Commodore-based BBS that I'm aware of -- Borderline!

951-652-1690 Borderline BBS, Hemet CA

It would be great to see others dust off their old 1200 baud modems (or 300 baud in my case) and revisit the pre-Internet world!

I know that there is a rich Commodore telnet community you can find here as well:

Commodore BBS Outpost


But if you want to check out other dial-up BBSs when using original hardware, you can consult the BBS Corner US and Canada Dial-Up BBS Guide

Something that might even be interesting to you Commodore users, things are really starting to 'heat up and get interesting when it comes to BBSing via the Internet on TI-99/4A Using an inexpensive UDS-10 with the original basic old RS-232 card we can now use our classic computers to call the BBS's a 38,400 with the newly modified TIMXT.

I love dialing in to BBSs. I bought a 1200 just for that, but unfortunately the $50 / mo. landline is not in the budget this year. :( I'm hoping soon I can get back to dialing up.


I think a VoIP service can handle 1200bps well these days. Most are now good enough for low-speed fax (9.6- to 14.4kbps.) Might help with the budget.
