    An updated INFORMATION page in the FidoGazette now simplifies
    submission instructions, and gives web locations to access
    earlier issues of the FidoGazette.  FYI, The FidoGazette was
    started 2007-09-30 by Sean Dennis, 1:18/200.  The FidoGazette is
    released weekly in the FGAZETTE file echo.
    
    Following up on why one runs a BBS, we also have another sysop's
    history of his BBS and why he enjoys running it; see the article
    in this edition.  Thanks Daryl!

    Why Run A BBS??
    By Daryl Stout, 1:19/33
    
    In response to the question "Why Run A BBS??", one could get a
    variety of answers for that.  And, that's sort of the skit from
    Foster Brooks, when they asked him "What were you doing when the
    earthquake hit??".  
    
    When I first started into BBSing, I was logging onto a BBS that
    was run by the University Of Arkansas At Little Rock computer
    science department.  While UALR is still around, the BBS is long
    gone...but I did meet the woman who was to eventually become my
    wife and Co-Sysop on there...more on that later.
    
    Anyway, this was over 30 years ago, and at that time, there were
    BBS's all around the central Arkansas area.  Users frequented
    from one BBS to the other, playing games, answering messages,
    doing file transfers, etc.  There were also gatherings of such
    groups as "the Central Arkansas Sysops Society" (CASS), where
    users and area Sysops gathered at area restaurants for face to
    face meetings.  It was neat to put faces to names.  I thought
    that this was a fun hobby, and decided I wanted to be a Sysop.
    
    I started on a TRS-80 Radio Shack 32K Model 100 laptop, with 2
    different BBS programs...Softmail and Mini-Net, and a 1200 baud
    modem.  It could've been called "The World's Smallest BBS".  :)
    I went online with it on Dec.  1, 1990.  I still have the file
    with the 2 programs in the BBS's file area.
    
    Then, for my 32nd birthday, a friend of my brothers (I didn't
    know him at the time), got me an 8088XT computer, which became
    the birthplace of The Thunderbolt BBS.  Arkansas Children's
    Hospital in Little Rock, was upgrading all their hardware, so I
    got it as a present.  There was another ham radio BBS in the
    area, but not one that also had ham radio and weather.  I ran
    dial-up for 13 years under GT Power, then went to Synchronet,
    and then to Virtual Advanced, to add telnet and web access. 
    Unfortunately, carelessness of the construction crew out at my
    apartment complex in 2005, sliced the phone cables, and that got
    rid of dial-up...especially when it cost over $50 for a dial-up
    line, that was very noisy.
    
    My main desire on the BBS was for the message areas, the
    original theme of the BBS...but I had some files and doorgames
    to start with.  The woman who I met on the BBS at UALR became a
    user, and eventually a Co-Sysop, and eventually my wife.  Sadly,
    she passed away nearly 10 years ago, but I chose to continue the
    BBS in her memory.  The funny part was that she loved playing
    the games on the BBS, and was a fierce competitor.  She was a
    great winner, but she sure wass a sore loser.  
    
    While I still have ham radio doors on the BBS, I can no longer
    have RF gear where I live, so I no longer have a "packet radio
    door", where licensed hams could access the Arkansas Packet
    Network from my "shack".
    
    With the declining health, and because of doing this for so
    long, even though I get very few callers anymore, the BBS is one
    of the few hobbies that I can still do...because I enjoy it.  I
    usually do the message areas FIRST, before going to the
    doorgames, file areas, and any other BBS related areas.  Sadly,
    like all Sysops, I still have to deal with "twits" every so
    often...just like dial-up Sysops did over 30 years ago.
    
    Folks wanting more information on the history of The Thunderbolt
    BBS can download the file TBHISTRY.ZIP from the BBS System Files
    Area from wx1der.dyndns.org via a guest logon via the website or
    telnet.  Note that if you can't connect, please try again later. 
    The BBS may be ham radio and weather related, but I don't argue
    with lightning...especially considering that I'm a 2 time
    lightning strike survivor.  However, I carry no electrical
    charge, and can be handled safely.

    =================================================================
    
    
    
    More Information about the FidoGazette:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, please
    contact me :)
    
    Subscriptions: Mailing-List subscriptions via
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    Or 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 may fail somewhere along the path before
    getting here.  Send them instead in the body of your routed
    netmail to janis@filegate.net
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one or your email address 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)).
