Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) on dialup started in August 1986. Ten years ago, 1996, I thought of putting up a site called “Dekada” to commemorate the tenth anniversary. Since the site is no longer around, it’s a good thing the Internet Archive has preserved the contents.
Here is the conversation from an old ph-isp mailing list. I’m not surprised if you don’t understand the 20-year old jargon. I’m sure some of you never even used dialup Internet!
An archive of my old site is here: www.bbs.org.ph
