BBS

I have been using a computer since I was nine, and I had never heard of a bulletin board system until a few years ago. The idea of its actually kind of interesting. It came out before the internet was born, and the idea is that people call a remote computer and are allowed a specified allotment of time in which to talk, play games, and do other stuff like send files and such. Pretty cool for the '80s I'd say.
