Event details

In August, 1985 Atari Corp began operating a BBS. The BBS began on two Atari 800 computers and a Corvus hard disk, running the  Nite Light BBS Software. By February, 1987 the BBS had 5 phone lines each connected to an Atari ST. Also in February, 1987 the Atari BBS was averaging 12,000 monthly calls (source: February 1987 issue of Antic Magazine - Volume 5, Number 10 page 52).
