    Modem World. It's been great :)

    why is it bbs day

    45 years ago yesterday (Feb 16, 1978), Ward Christensen and Randy Suess put CBBS online for the first time for the public to dial into.

    And, here we are 45 years later!

    No cats, no interwebz. But the Internet was around before the interwebz, so I think we can let the lack of cats slide when discussing BBS
