From the time the BBS was running until it was moved to it's current location on the Internet in 1997 we had received over 97,000 calls into the system from 2 dial up lines so you can tell we were quite popular. :-)

While I try to make my site attractive, my main concern is it's speed so you won't find a lot of fancy graphics or sounds. You'll also notice it is void of advertising.
