It seems to be working fairly well, several 'callers' have come and
gone and it remains stable. The speed is about 19.2kbps, not even
close to the 115k potential but still fairly usable.
I am wondering, does anyone have a real BBS backed up somewhere, one
that was live "back in the day"? Running a stock board is neat, but
bringing an old board back to life would be even better.

At least for the OS-9 Level 2 BBS, the commands are all written in assembly and are small, so a disassembly project on those would be fun if someone wanted to tackle that.
