About Outpost BBS

Image of
    Outpost BBS login screenOutpost BBS is a hobby I've had since 1998 when I opened my first public BBS.  The current BBS is running MBSE BBS v1.0.6.x under Slackware Linux 14.2 The BBS is a MBSE BBS test site as I am a member of the MBSE BBS development team.

If you'd like to connect to the BBS, telnet to bbs.outpostbbs.net. For more information about connecting to the BBS, please visit the "Connect to the BBS" page.

Outpost BBS is the home of Cheepware BBS doors and utilities, the Fidonet CH-WARE file distribution system, and the Micronet Information Network (zone 618).  Outpost BBS is a member of Fidonet (1:18/200).

I offer full and point feeds for Fidonet.  For more info, please contact me.  For Micronet feeds, please visit the Micronet page.

Offline mail is available in Blue Wave, QWK, and ASCII formats for all local and networked message bases.  Offline netmail access is available via Blue Wave format.

The BBS offers several doors for your enjoyment like multinode Scrabble, Triple Yahtzee, Stack 'Em, Legend of the Red Dragon (LORD), Exitilus, and the entire line of Cheepware DOS doors.  More doors will be added as time allows and user demand grows.

The BBS's filebase is small right now but will be growing as time allows.  In addition to the good-sized local filebase with a myriad of files, I will be adding classic shareware CDs including CDs from the "Night Owl" and "Cream of the Crop" series.  The BBS has a large collection of files for the BBS sysop as well as the OS/2 user that I've collected over the years.  The BBS-related file areas are filled with different files that a BBS sysop or user might need.

The BBS also carries the Slackware-current branch of Slackware Linux for download, both as individual files or as an ISO file. This is updated at 0315 Eastern time daily.
