Been around since 1992... which is like, an eternity in computer-time.

What Is It?

It's a BBS running Centipede on a Commodore 128D with message bases dedicated to old computer goodness.


[+] 25,000+ files for the Commodore 64, Vic-20, 128, Plus/4 (NTSC/PAL), CP/M
[+] Large (100s of disk images) of GEOS/Wheels files
[+] 1000s of NTSC Plus/4 files with more being converted all the time.
[+] Over 120 file areas so far, still adding more
[+] 60+ online games (Empire, Nuke'Em, tons more)
[+] Lots of message bases with posts from some very interesting people.

New! Retro Usenet feed - read Usenet as if it was 1983. Serving up 20 message bases.
More upon request.

And congrats to the Empire Contest Winners! New contest starting soon!

Runs PETSCII, ANSI, ASCII, 40 columns, 80 columns so connect with whatever you want.

Speaking of connecting, connect from the website at if you don't have a terminal.

Useless Hardware Info:

Running on a Commodore 128D w/640K of RAM (which is enough for anyone)
Ports open at 38,400 so it flies. Ever seen an 8-bit transfer at 38.4K? Holy crap.
This is done with the magic of a Swiftlink RS232 adapter.
Punter, Multipunter, Ymodem, Xmodem xfers. Find one you like.
4GB CMD SCSI drive running off a Compact Flash card using a SCSI to CF adapter. Fast. For 8-bit.

You can find us at Facebook also as

Also check out us out in Commodore Free Magazine, Issue 85! (
