IBM and Compatibles: DOS: XRBBS
|| Linus Sphinx and Rahner James
Linus Crawford writes in: "XRBBS written in C by Linus Sphinx &
Rahner James, published as freeware circa 1986, full featured multi-line
capable, a dozen custom door games, "fleabag", message hotel. A WYSIWYG
menu editor that would let you emulate t/rbbs, pcboard, opus and a dozen
other sites look and feel. There was even a commercial version included in
an accounting package as the, "Remote Data Collector", extension. The
authors are still alive and programming in Sacramento, CA."
"Most famous installation was probably, "The Wall", I still have some of the
ascii ads for it, the little dog peeing, "owwwooo, somewhere in the night a
lonely hard drive cries out", I'll dig them out and send them along. I
believe that is what really made those days, the art you'd graffiti other
bbs's with to spread yours."
