I've thought about doing just that. There appear to be two huge bbs programs
on rtsi and some little ones. Whitch one is best, and what are the
differences? There's also a ton of support software there, but what bbs is it

IMHO the hardest part would be affording a second phone line, but that
shouldn't be too much. Then there's getting a second SCSI drive, then getting
it to work...<grumble>...but that's for another thread.
The second hardest part would be manitaining a high speed dialup connection.
The electricity out here is about the worst I've ever seen, even in good
weather. The phone lines aren't much better, probably worse. Of course we have
300 baud, and it should work, but shouldn't a 4.0 mhz 6309 handle 9600? Why
settle for less because AT&T has forgotten us, out here in the woods?
