Setting up a new Telegard BBS in 2021…

“#bbs #pc #dos A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a printout of a CBBS bulletin board system session that happened 40 years ago last month. As a former BBS user and sysop, this was really exciting to me as CBBS is the grandaddy of all bulletin board software. I immediately wanted to set up a CBBS system afterwards and see what it was like, and how it compared to the Telegard system I ran as a youth, but…

Yeah CBBS is a *lot* more complicated to install. That will take a while for me to figure out, and then there’s the non-trivial matter of finding the right hardware. So that’s a future project. But I’ve got serious BBS nostalgia right now! So I decided to dust off Telegard 2.7 and install it just as I would have 30 years ago this fall, when my highschool had me set one up for them.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane. I’d originally wanted to restore a backup of my original BBS that I made to tape, but alas, I cannot find it! So we’ll just have to start from scratch and see what I remember.. or not.”

I wish I’d had my C64 online back in the day…I probably still could get the hardware and do it, but…why bother?

From what I understand, some people still maintain an active BBS on old computers.

That’s kind of neat.

MyPillow Guy Swears His NEW Plan Will Definitely Work To Overturn 2020 Election…

“MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says that he has a new event coming up in July that is absolutely going to result in the 2020 election being overturned. His claims are becoming more and more comical as he repeatedly fails to produce any evidence at all of massive voter fraud in the 2020 election. But there’s a reason he’s still doing this, and it has nothing to do with actually overturning an election, and Farron Cousins explains what that motive is.

European Politician Drops Truth Bombs About Ukraine War…

“Clare Daly, from Dublin, Ireland, is frequently a lone voice of conscience in the European Parliament, excoriating her neoliberal colleagues to pursue diplomacy over war and to consider the impact decisions they make have on everyday people in Europe and across the globe. In her latest philippic, Daly demanded that the Parliament consider following up on overtures by Italian, German and French leaders in aggressively pursuing peace in Ukraine as the threat of a global food shortage looms.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the inevitable conclusion to the Ukraine War and just how much global damage will ensue before the violence ends.”

End The Sanctions Now!

“Ezra Miller is still missing with a teenager, and the media is putting pressure on Warner Bros to do SOMETHING. To make matters worse, DC Comics put out a POORLY TIMED comic book cover prominently featuring a nekkid Ezra. Oh man. Can Warner just CANCEL The Flash movie already and take the L?”

Quite the situation.

What Happened To Giant Hovercraft?…

“When the first hovercraft debuted in the summer 1959, it stunned the world as it appeared to almost magically float over any surface. It was a new kind of machine that could travel almost anywhere, on land, water, or just about any other surface.

The first prototype hovercraft, designed by British engineer Christopher Cockerell, was a mere demonstrator for the technology, but in just a few short years hovercraft would go from being a curiosity to promising to herald in a new transport revolution. Britain, the United States, and France poured millions into hovercraft development, both for civilian and military purposes.

The British would quickly emerge as leaders in hovercraft development and adoption. Small scale hovercraft transport services began popping up throughout the country only two years after the hovercraft first made its debut.

The pinnacle of British hovercraft design was the enormous SR.N4. The largest version was capable of transporting sixty cars and as many passengers as a Boeing 747 jumbo jet at speeds of up to 130 km/hr. By the end of the 1970s, these iconic hovercraft carried nearly a third of all passenger traffic on the English Channel, playing an important role in connecting Britain to Continental Europe.

But 50 years after they were introduced, giant hovercraft have all but disappeared. The transport revolution that was once promised, never arrived.”
