    I figured I would post this since it is hard to find BBS's that support the 8-bits. I got the file from Computer Software Service's BBS.

    I also had a question for the netters: I am still relatively new to UNIX.
    I wish to put Usenet newsgroups on my 8-bit BBS's. I don't think anybody's tried this before (if anybody has, please e-mail me!). I can handle the 8- bit end of it, but am totally lost on the UNIX side. I used to run a network of Carina I boards many years ago, so I understand in general how I want to do it, but need some help. Namely, how do I:

    Post a news message to a given group, from a file which has been uploaded with, say, X-Modem 1K. The name in the From: line must somehow be changed
    to the BBS user leaving the message, so e-mail will get to the right user
    on the BBS. I have the same question regarding sending mail and am quite
    lost on reading mail. As far as x-ferring messages, I have that completely figured out: I will use fgrep on the active file to determine the highest message in a given newsgroup, then send each 'new' file directly from the news
    directory with X-Modem 1K or y-batch.

    So some things have not been dumped into the bit bucket - yet.

    Here's something that's from even earlier than 1991, that's still on-line <http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1/pg1-images.html>

    I notice that only two NYC BBSs were listed. In 1991, there were
    plenty more than that.
