laddo 0 Posted June 5, 2004 Report Share Posted June 5, 2004 92 ish, the only way electronically mail the world was through mail packets via a BBS (Bulletin Board System) These were small local friendly systems, with access to Fido Mail. Each board was called a Node. Every BBS 'Sysop' had to compress and transfer mail packets by phone every day. These packets were merged into larger packets at fido hubs for onward transmission to the USA. The return mail was transfered in the same way and distributed to the Nodes. Amazing really how reliable this was. Local Nottingham BBS's included. Mission Impossible BBS Viper BBS (Bulwell) Sysop John ? Cobra BBS (Retford) Sysop John Cooke Outer Limits BBS The Fonty Towers BBS Maxima BBS Escape From Reality BBS I could be found on Viper and Cobra, Any other ex BBS users here ?
