Just a one time post to hopefully bring more bbs callers to our hobby.
Doc's Place BBS has been online since 1991 and was one of the first internet bbses when dial up bbses were going offline. http://www.was-ist-fido.de/doks/fnews/fido1733.txt
A post similar to this one back in 2000 revived a dead board, and I'm hoping to attract new callers.
And although most traffic in Fidonet is nowadays handled by Internet connections, nobody needs to fear the cost implications anymore, even
when they are using dialin connections. At least over here in Germany
most phone carriers provide flat rates for national calls.
And yes, I really love that sound of my modem when someone connects.
Still today! :-)

Just a side note: There is a project called SIMNET that aims to bridge the gap between the dial up crowd and the telnet crowd. Also,
Lantronix boxes are a good alternative as they fool the computer into thinking it's a modem but it "dials" to telnet connections.
