"Your Satellite BBS" eh? I love it!!!

I wonder how many web surfers actually know what "BBS" stands for... (Bulletin Board System, of course!)

I ran many dialup BBS'es in the past including The Major BBS, Maximus, Opus, and countless other software incantations. I wonder if anyone here knows what SYSOP stands for? (SYStem OPerator-mods came later! :D )

That's why I know what kind of dedication is required to run a fine system such as DBSTALK.COM and how much time is required! Thanks to all the "mods" and, of course Mr. Blount our SYSOP!!!! ;)

What??? You mean this isn't a BBS??

My 2400 baud modem barely loads this place anymore.;)
Guess I'll have to upgrade to that new fangled 56k modem.:D

I read a report that said the typical symptoms of stress were eating too much, drinking too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Who are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day.
