I swear... no matter how long it is between logins, every time I log on to the Reef, it feels like home. I was able to log in today through thekeep.net's dial out function, and I remembered why I love BBSes... I was fairly active on Heatwave a couple years ago, and it is an excellent BBS... clean, fast, fully loaded... I feel the same about thekeep.net. Excellent in every way.
But nothing makes me feel like the Hidden Reef for some reason. Even though it is slower and spongy by comparison.
I am buying a 56k modem and I will be dialing in via my TI soon. I haven't done THAT in probably 6-7 years.
I can't really explain it... But The Hidden Reef just makes me feel something no other BBS does.
