"CBase64 - commercial software, ran at up to 2400 Baud, full ANSI/ASCII
capabilities. Ran it off a CMD 20 Meg external SCSI HD specially designed
for Commodore 64/128 machines. Had door games, limited file transfer, chat,
messages. Ran it for about a year in a city called Hamilton, one of the
most popular BBS's at the time due to it's supposedly strange computer
platform, and slow speed [a bit of a novelty when 14.4 modems were common!]." - Kane Archer
Gunther Birznieks writes "C-BASE 64 was born out of CMBBS influence and
officially became a product about 4 years after CMBBS came out. CMBBS came
out when I was 14. I released CBASE when I was 18. I kept it going til I was
23 and then gave the rights to someone else in Canada.

when I was 20."
