WELCOME TO THE LAIR
The Lair of the Wolverine is your all-access pass to a moment in time when Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) was the way to communicate locally and abroad.
"A bulletin board system, or BBS, is a computer server running custom software that allows users to connect to the system using a terminal program. Once logged in, the user can perform functions such as uploading and downloading software and data, reading news and bulletins, and exchanging messages with other users through email, public message boards, and sometimes via direct chatting. Many BBSes also offer on-line games, in which users can compete with each other, and BBSes with multiple phone lines often provide chat rooms, allowing users to interact with each other.
Bulletin board systems were in many ways a precursor to the modern form of the World Wide Web, social networks and other aspects of the Internet."
There are two ways that you can connect to The Lair and experience the past in all of its glory. The first way is from this web site, by selecting the 'CONNECT' tab at the top of this page. The second way is to download and use a Telnet application with ANSI emulation, like SyncTerm or NetRunner.
THE MADRIPOR GAZETTE
Its almost the end of 2018 as we know it, but are we ready for 2019?
I'm working on setting up a Discord server for BBS folks to use. I've received mixed results on whether or not it would be useful, but we won't know until we try.
New file sections are going LIVE right now, which should prove to be rather exciting for those of you who connect for the files.
We will be working with Maskreet to finally get Doorparty server functioning on our board. Special thanks to him!
