A dial-up bulletin board built using scraps and recycled parts from other computers I had on hand. A fusion of “new” hardware and old ideas in the form of a living pile of junk.
I’ve wanted to build and run a bulletin board system since learning about the scene when I first found textfiles.com in middle school. I always thought I was “born too late” to make it happen, but there’s been a recent revival in retro computing that has made everything old new again.
