This base is leaving

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Thu May 09, 2013 8:12 pm

I started Jolt Country BBS as a dial up board in 1989. The bases it had were the AG, Orc's Head Tavern (Knight Orc was around four years old when I started the board... good grief), The King's Quarters, The Pleasure Wharf, Best of, Troll Room and the warez base called the Dungeon Master's Den. I quickly added Auto Body 101: Liberals Get all the Girls for my pal Jeff, who was the mod and who liked those things.

I don't know why Walrustitty never sucked it up but it is clear that base is just not getting traffic.

I shall hide it tomorrow.

I will also be renaming the movies and sex base to The Pleasure Wharf (a Wishbringer reference).

The same thing that happened to all the dial up posts that will apparently never get hosted.

Not with that attitude they're not! I always assumed ICJ was just saving this project for his Golden Years, sort of like Ben with his The Verse Project.

It's on a to-do list somewhere, I'll bet.

I will probably move them and hide them and only make them accessible to registered users.

I will probably also let people move threads they liked from that base either into Best of or the Adventurer's Guild.

I will not delete them.

There is no way for me to tag them in case I ever want them separated again so sadly, there is no perfect solution.

Well, here is what I need for that to happen.

1) I need a way to telnet into a DOS computer. Or a Linux computer running DOS box.

2) I need to account for the fact that my home IP changes all the time.

3) If we can then telnet into a friendly domain name and have it go to this computer and use the BBS as it was when I shut it down in 1998, then that is great. I'm in.

I don't know how to do #1 or #2. If someone has a guide for that, I will do it tomorrow my friend!
