Good, good times.

I really miss the (for the most part) civilized and laid-back attitude of Fido. Back then communication was so asynchronous, even in the middle of a flame-war you took your time to think about and formulate a reasonable response 😆

@fribbledom I'm kinda amazed they are still going, although usage is down to almost nothing. Its just kinda amazing to see it still going.

Man I should really setup an ssh/telnet based BBS.
