    Why Run a BBS?  
    
    One of our sysops wonders, and somehow I think this question is
    considered by many of us.  Here's one answer, see if you agree.
    
    It would be interesting to see other's opinions and thoughts,
    feel free to send me a netmail or an email for inclusion next
    week.

                            A  PRIEST & A RABBI
    
    A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an
    airplane.  The priest turned to the rabbi and asked, "Is it
    still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?" The
    rabbi responded,” Yes, that is still one of our laws." The
    priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?" To which the
    rabbi replied, "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation
    and tasted a ham sandwich." The priest nodded in understanding
    and went on with his reading.
    
    A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, "Father,
    is it still a requirement of your church that you remain
    celibate?" The priest replied, "Yes, that is still very much a
    part of our faith." The rabbi then asked him, "Father, have you
    ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?" The priest
    replied, "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke my
    Faith."
    
    The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, but sat
    thinking for about five minutes.
    
    Finally, the rabbi uttered ...........  "Sure beats a ham
    sandwich, doesn't it?"

    Why do you run a BBS?
    By Dan Richter, 1:317/3
    
    
    This question has been discussed in a couple different networks
    in recent time.  There have been a lot of great answers
    mentioned by Sysops.  Nostalgia seemed to be one of the
    recurring answers that was mentioned.  Most of the Sysops today,
    also ran BBSs back in the 80s and 90s.  It wasn’t as simple to
    set up and maintain at that time.
    
    Back then, we needed a phone line and modem for starters. I
    won’t even get into all of the programs and doors that we had to
    get set up and registered.  If we wanted to pick up a network,
    there was a good chance there would be long distance phone calls
    to obtain the feed, and at the blazing fast speed of high-speed
    2400 baud modem, it took a while to transfer.  What made it all
    worth it, at least for me, was having 40-50 callers per day who
    were active in all aspects of the board.  Files were uploaded
    and downloaded.  Message bases were read and replied to.  Door
    games were always busy with daily callers.  I even added a paid
    subscription access which would give more time and download
    capability, which some users took advantage of.
    
    Today, the BBS community is a completely different world than it
    was back then.  Yes, a lot of us have decided to start up our
    boards again and customize them the way we like.  We have
    connected to networks to gain access to echomail bases and
    files.  We’ve set up door games, and connected some of them for
    interbbs play.  Our connection speeds are so much faster, and
    our hard drives are larger than what we could obtain back in the
    day.  Instead of having CD-Roms online for files, we copy
    multiple CDs onto our hard drive.
    
    Why do we do it?
    
    Let’s face it. At this point, we are not doing it for the users. 
    There aren’t enough of them anymore.  There are a handful that
    will stop in and check out the different BBSs for the sake of
    nostalgia.  These users either never connect again, or they
    decide they should set up a BBS, and they last for a month or so
    before disappearing.
    
    When I originally set up Castle Rock BBS, back in 1992, I didn’t
    know a batch file from a GIF file.  All I knew is that I could
    run the shareware version of these BBS programs just fine on my
    computer.  How hard would it be to put it online?  With the help
    of a fellow Sysop, I finally got the hang of batch files, and at
    one point, had the entire system from mailer and BBS program to
    door games and utilities all running within one batch file.  I
    was so proud of myself.  The amount of knowledge that I gained
    from running that BBS was phenomenal.  Batch files, init strings
    (I don’t miss those), config files, etc.
    
    Before I decided to start up Castle Rock BBS again, I had called
    around to some other BBSs and looked to see what was happening
    in the community again.  I knew the user base had not come back. 
    I noticed the same user names appearing on all the different
    boards, and most of them were other Sysops.  I re-joined the
    community to further my knowledge.  Not only did I have to
    remember how everything was set up 20 years ago, but now I had
    to get it to work with today’s technology.  I had to figure out
    how to get 16 bit door games to run on my 64 bit Win10 system. 
    I then had to get these door games to not look for a serial
    port, but direct them to a socket.  I had to figure out how to
    direct callers to a specific port instead of a modem’s telephone
    number.  Basically, I needed to get 20+ year old software to run
    with today’s technology.  I did have a lot of questions and
    received assistance from some great people in the current BBS
    community.
    
    I don’t have a web page yet, and I don’t have FTP access
    available.  I am planning on doing this in the future.  I’m just
    telnet accessible.  Yes, I have seen very few callers to the
    board.  At this point, I’m not doing it for the callers.  I’m
    doing this to give me a reason to learn more.  Because I’m using
    Mystic BBS right now, I’m working on re-teaching myself how to
    program in Pascal, and MPL, which are closely related.  I’ve got
    a book that I will be reading to learn a bit about how to
    program in Python.  Right now, I’ve got a couple of programming
    projects that are in the works.  I feel they will help me, and
    other Sysops out there.
    
    I’m at the point in my life, where I love to learn new things. 
    This hobby gives me the reason to pick up the programming books,
    or to dive into a different operating system, and learn about
    them.  I had become too complacent with using Windows to surf
    the net.  Instead of reading what someone else had for dinner
    that night, or how many times they were on the toilet, on social
    media, I’m working on creating a program that will help other
    Sysops around the world.
    
    For me, not only am I continuing to learn while participating in
    a hobby I enjoy, but I have the opportunity to help other people
    around the world to better their understanding of the hobby.  As
    much as I love to have the user base that was around back in the
    day, I don’t care if I get another call on my board.  I’m having
    fun, and learning something.  So, why do you run a BBS?

    =================================================================
    
    
    
    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, 
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions via 
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-200-4076 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
