I know this is going back a bit, but I'm sure there for a few "old timers" out there from back in the day, early 90's anywas :)
I'm talking about the world of BBS's. 160 buard acustic modems, 1200baud C64, CNet, Renegade, Wildcat, That other one that was way too complicated, pcboard, etc. Door games, Legend of red Dragon, Usurper, BRE, MUDD Etc
Disregard rest of message if none of these ring a bell...
For those of you who remember, have you found similarities in modern CMS apps and getting the feeling of being a "sysop" instead of a true webmaster?
I know I can get my text based BRE from telnet bbs's.
The main question, is when is the "FidoNet 2.0" going to appear. I know RSS is pretty close, and in some ways better. BUT I was really talking linked web forum, and loosly linked flash games.
ANyone else given any thought to this? Or does it already exist?
Something more controled and regulated than USENET, and using phpbb or something more configurable.
I don't know much about the programmning or details, but can donate web space, domain, and VPS to the cause. All open source and commercial free (excpt for the standard "this message based thru webmaster world"-type tagline. Just to be old school.
Any suggestions? Impossible? Pointless?
And for what it worth, I'm still listed as fido 1:2370 netadmin. Dork, I know :)
