[attachment=487033:e61c485919aeda967824c3e751b1b2c5.jpeg]  And now... The Prologue...
 
And there was a creature in the universe, according to the Hithhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by the name of[b] Bowerick Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged[/b] is an immortal being who became immortal after an accident with a few rubber bands, a liquid lunch, and a particle accelerator. After a period of total boredom, especially on Sunday afternoons, he decided to insult everyone in the entire universe in alphabetical order.
 
Being not immortal, nor as infinitely bored, I have decided to not visit every BBS in alphabetical order.   I would be a month or two before leaving the A's.   No, if I should not complete this task of visiting all the existing BBSs in the world, at least let it BE said that I was not alphabetist.   (Alphabetist is like racist, but against treating all letters of the alphabet equally.)
 
That said, I will now move on to the letter B, and tomorrow C, and so forth.   Or maybe I'll just visit a BBS as it is brought to my attention and then go back to some assemblance of order.  
 
[b](Yes, please do mention your favorite BBS and I'll pay it a visit.)  ;)[/b]
 
So today is the B4BBS

Hey a  BBS from London!   How ironic that I had the [u]Up Pompeii[/u] and [u]Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy[/u] references since they are both British shows!!  :D
 
This is about where my joy ended on this visit.  :/

Tried to leave a validation message on the BBS.   It would not create a new line.  I had to erase what I had to abort the message.  It flagged me that I needed to leave a message to be validated.  What could I do.  I tried again, the system locked up, had to log back in.
 
On the second go around I was able to see the menu and message areas..

The game menu...

Part of the BBS link.  I think the Manilla BBS is linked to that too.

And yes I was already there.  
 
So I played as a new character "Doctor Clu" and got halfway through the game before the system locked up.  When I tried to log back in to try other terminal programs to see if I would have any other luck with the message posting, the BBS would not let me back in.
 
Normally a BBS experience is not this frustrating, but with 386 more BBSs out there, I probably won't be revisiting the B4BBS.
 
Good luck B4BBS, hope you work out your technical problems.
