Axiom It's pretty neat. I am not old enough to know the full ins and outs of BBS tech. I was a tot when my parents used them. However I can say that Lunduke's BBS is painless to use. You can use the regular Linux telnet to connect, but the ANSI art will be wrong. I use Qodem on my pi 3 b+, though I had to compile it from source which isn't difficult at all. Syncterm also works good (also had to compile for my pi), however I prefer Qodem as syncterm has a more emulated appearance like Dosbox. Qodem looks nicer. You have 120 minutes a day to be logged in. The limit resets every 24 hours. Lunduke's website says Patreon subscribers get "Unlimited access to BBS". I can tell everyone how to connect if y'all like.
The BBS itself is nice to use. It's got a small amount of activity. There is 7 message boards. Only two ar active. General and Linux Thursday questions. The rest are for door games. It has a chat, but the BBS is not active enough for anyone to be there, lol. It also has an email thing for private messages I suppose.

- Legend of the Red Dragon
- The Pit

I've not tried any of them. I've never played a door game in my life so I'm not qualified to review them.
It says on Lunduke's website that there is downloadable mp3 audio from his shows in the BBS and "retro computing file sections" but I have no idea how to see or download from them. There isn't any menu entry for them in the BBS.
Edit: Maybe i should post all this to the forum? It's a lot of info, lol.
