The 'Net before the 'Net...for me at least

Had a nice lunch at the O'Reilly Open Source Conference with Gunther Birznieks.  He's got offices in Singapore and we've got offices in Malaysia (I'll be there in August) and his company has worked with our company.  He was speaking at the conference but we really got to talking and somehow ended up on BBSs, and he mentioned that he wrote CBASE 64 a legendary and oft copied BBS for the, you guessed it, Commodore 64.  I have 3 C64s, 2 1541 drives and a 1501 monitor in my garage...perhaps it's time to fire it up and do some 2400bps war dialing? ;)

Funny thing is, I grew up on BBSs, and dated some people in our teens that ended up being big names (even while they were teens) in the BBS industry. I used to think that was the coolest thing, until I started working on programming myself :) Now I'm coming to realize I'm just as cool as they were! :) Geek from the start :)
