Yes, Orion system made a BBS cartridge called; Express. it cam in a gray case similar to RTIME-8 or SpartaDos X where you can stick the SpartaDos X to the ATARI computer, no-top of it the EXPRESS cart and on-top the RTIME-8 so you can run the EXPRESS BBS software on SPARTADOSX and have a real time clock.. together back in the day with a mass storage device like the MIO you can run a BBS at home.


Not exactly.  The Express cart from Orion was a terminal program... not a BBS program.  I have it here.

Man... that goes back further than I do.  I don't remember any of those NE Ohio BBS's.  I really didn't get into the BBSing until about '86-'87.  Not sure when the Akron area Atari BBS's started up but none of them seem to be on that list.



The original Boot Factory is on the list... even though they didn't have the name correct.
