Been around since last Thursday... which is like, a whole bunch of
irrelevant shit nobody cares about.
What Is It?
It's a BBS running OddBBS on a Magnavox Odyssey2 with message bases
dedicated to old computer goodness. Everything runs off of a
cartridge containing NVRAM built in 1980, making it the world's first
consumer application of SSD technology!
[+] Over 9000 files for the Interton VC4000, Radofin Tele-Sports,
Elektronike IM-series, Mera Elzab Meritum, and Mattel Football handheld
[+] Constantly expanding waistlines of its users
[+] Large (100s of porn images) of Fairchild Channel F files
[+] 1000s of NTSC Oric Atmos files with more being converted all the
[+] Over 120 file areas so far, still adding more (content to come
[+] 80+ online games (COD 4, Portal 3, tons more)
[+] Lots of message bases with posts from some very socially-inept
New! Future Usenet feed - read Usenet as if it was 2083. Serving up 20 message bases, none of which exist on Usenet - yet.
Requests gleefully ignored.
New! Usenet feed. 100% 0-day 1337 Aquarius H/P/A/V/C w4r3z from alt.binaries.mattel.aquarius.hack.the.gibson.
Runs EBCDIC in 17 columns, so connect with whatever you think will
put up with our shit.
Speaking of connecting, connect from the website at
if you don't have a terminal.
Useless Hardware Info:
Running on a Magnavox Odyssey2 w/8TB of cartridge port NVRAM (and the
Intel 8048 is enough for anyone)
Ports open at around 110bps for maximum retro value. Ever seen an 8-bit transfer at 38.4K? Yeah, not this one, buddy.
This is done with the magic of a scratchy landline that routes all of
its calls through Benin.
Better screen-scrape that shit once you find it and want to keep it,
because fuck xmodem and the like.
4GB CMD SCSI drive running off a Compact Flash card using a SCSI to CF
adapter? Aw, hell no. Cartridge port NVRAM, beeyotches!
