Hello. I'm new & a little about me you might find interesting (or not)

Hi guys. I'm really familiar with Gene and his other show he has. I've been listening and participating in the forums for years now. But I'm new here. In the early 80's, I got my first Apple product. A Apple IIC. I specifically got it to run a BBS system. This was a major upgrade as my computer's before this were a C-64 and Commodore Amiga. In addition to the Apple IIC, I had a ProAPP 20 MB hard drive (almost unheard of at the time). I ran Greg Shafer's GBBS Pro software. I also utilized a U.S. Robotic's Courier HST modem (9600 baud). After I outgrew the IIC I got a IIGS. I also upgraded to a Chinook 40 MB hard drive & was still running GBBS Pro.

I got back into Apple around 2005 with a desktop. Since then, I've had a plethora of iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, etc.

The pre internet days of BBS's were very exciting and fun. Anyone else here run a BBS? Or call them? It'd be fun to hear what hardware & software you used to either call or run a BBS.

Cheeers :)
