The file archives of the Dreamland BBS, for Amiga, DOS, Linux, Windows, SunOS/Solaris, BSD, and more.
It's hard to say what all is in here, so poke around and see if anything looks good.
The Internet Archive is also aware of needing to back up this archive: https://archive.org/details/dreamlandbbs.com
Repos of a crew who're keeping the old-school alive.
dialup.world is (currently) a three-line dial-up ISP!
This software will help you transfer software to your classic Macintosh (e.g. MacOS System 6, 7, 68k Macs, etc) using the serial port. Very simply, this software runs on a modern host computer, and behaves like a BBS would back in the day. You connect your Macintosh to the host computer using serial, and then, using your vintage computer, you can search and download files from online archives (e.g. Macintosh Garden, Mac Repository). However, this "BBS" has only one user, you!
I don't see why you couldn't use this pseudo-BBS to transfer software to other kinds of computers as well.
IRATA.ONLINE is provided for the benefit of retro-computing users to have a place to socialize, and develop interesting multi-user, interactive, and graphical games and social applications. It descends from the historical PLATO system, a massive time-sharing system that lasted from 1962 until NovaNET was closed in 2015. More than a BBS but a bit less than a commercial computing service.
Multiuser. Graphical, so it requires its own cross-platform software. Online games, social network, realtime chat, online development of new applications for the service in a language called Tutor. Has its own client software, Platoterm, for a number of retro platforms, including the Atari 8-bits, C64, Apple IIgs, Atari ST, and the Amiga. There is also an Android port.
Commodore BBS telnet listing. Even has an API.
Mystic BBS was conceived around the year 1995 when the author became frustrated by the lack of customization available with Renegade BBS, and first released to the public in late 1997 during a period when many BBS packages were seeing a decline (or a full stop) in development. Mystic is developed from the ground up with all original source code and is intended to be the spiritual successor to both Telegard and Renegade.
Mystic has internal Telnet, RLOGIN, SSH, NNTP, POP3, SMTP, FTP, HTTP and BINKP servers while continuing to focus on and enhance the SysOp and user experience.
Supports Linux on multiple platforms natively (including the RasPi).
Supports Renegade-style MCI codes. Full support for QWK and echomail. Up to 255 users simultaneously. IRC-like BBS chat. Has its own scripting language (MPL) and supports Python for writing addons.
Built in admin tools, including moderation and blocking.
The Break Into Chat wiki was created to preserve the history of these and other BBS door games, after editors on Wikipedia began deleting door game articles.
The BBS Wiki is a project to document everything related to BBSes. This is a wiki, so anyone can create or edit a page. So far we have created 172 articles. It's a little lightweight right now, but it has some fairly rare information.
A trivial collection of python scripts and database queries that miraculously shit out a fully functional, text-driven community bulletin board. Requires Python 3.4 and up for the server and the official TUI client (clients/urwid/). The API is simple and others are welcome to join the party at some point. Maybe I can abuse this somehow?
Binkd transfers files between two Fidonet systems over TCP/IP.
MultiMail is a Blue Wave, QWK, OMEN
and SOUP offline packet reader for Unix/Linux, DOS, OS/2, Win32 and macOS
Somebody implemented old-school sysop chat as a website. Talk to random people.
A modern directory of online BBSes.
Taglines! Taglines to feed the QWKmail readers of the Illuminati!
