Hello, all. Is anyone still operating a dial-in BBS for CBM platforms
(presumably out of a love for retro things)? Is there a list of working
phone numbers available? My C-64 is still fully operational along with
2 1541 disk drives. (No, that's not my everyday computer.) Might be
nice to fire up that 1670 modem once again that I used for so long with
Q-Link/AOL. Thanks for your time and comment. Sincerely,
--

While most are available via Telnet or SSH, some have real phone lines.

As another option, you can get one of these for your C64:

which will let you access Telnet BBSs from your C64.
