In fact all the equipment I have cost more then the computer I now own and I could not even give it away. LOL.
I'll bet you were even a subscriber to QLInk - the predecessor of AOL.

I lived in North Carolina in the late 80's, and there were a lot of BBS's there. Still have HUNDREDS of 5 1/4 floppies with games I downloaded to use "in the future". I don't think I've ever touched them...

I wanted to set up a BBS myself, but a 20 MB hard drive was WAY out of my price range! LOL!
