Cheepware

Cheepware is my line of freeware BBS doors and utilities written in Pascal. I began working on my first BBS door, "The Magic Oracle", in 1998. I originally wrote TMO for myself but distributed it to the public hoping other BBS sysops would find my door entertaining. I've been releasing my software to the public ever since. I am proud to say that I have been writing and supporting Cheepware for over 25 years!

The Cheepware name is a play on "cheap wares" since BBS sysops are notoriously cheap and don't like to pay for anything...

In addition to this website, I hatch out Cheepware via my Fidonet CH-WARE filebone and in Micronet's MIN_BBS filebone. You can download Cheepware from my FTP site at bbs.outpostbbs.net in /pub/local/cheepware. I will release software via Cheepware for other authors from time to time as a favor to them.

I support my software via the Fidonet CHWARE echo and the Micronet MIN_BBS echo.

The source code for my doors is available and is released using the Cheepware License (BSD-like). If you're interested, please contact me for more details.
