      My first forum in the mid 90s used this script... and I have kept the archives of it online.

            My first vBulletin experience was 2.0.0 when it was released in May '01. I didn't join here until '04 because the company I worked for had been letting me use their login for support. ;-) Finally bought my own license shortly after 3.0.0 was released. ...I remember THAT learning curve too.

                I ran the Renegade BBS Software FAQ back in the early 90's for the author Cott Lang and also ran a few BBS's using the same software. I ran the first BBS in Phoenix to offer Usenet news groups. I used a free feed from Arizona State University,

                P.S. Colossus/Mustang (Wildcat!) did not come up the the idea of BBS's. Not even close. They started in 1986 or so. The first BBS was called CBBS (Yup, Computer Bulletin Board System) back in 1978. It was created by Ward Christensen. How do I know this? Ward is my uncle. (Ward also wrote the XModem protocol that a lot of early BBS's used).

                  Robert do tell us more about the beginning of BBS's. I was born in 1978, and love hearing about history of computers and the Internet.

                    Hmm interesting, maybe if I simplify it to the tasks of saving data (messages) to a database and retrieving it?

                            You can also check out http://www.bbsmates.com for some still running BBS's or to find old BBS friends you might have lost touch with. I went by the name BUNGEE! back in the day.
