The System Operator’s primary motivation in running this BBS is to have fun in retro computing. He exerted effort to make this BBS give you a mid-1990’s BBSing experience. Fidonet and FsxNet echo mail areas are available here. Popular door games such as (but not limited to) LORD, LORD2, Global War, etc., can be played here.
This BBS is dedicated to Old Computer Software such as IBM PC/JR, IBM XT, AT, 386, 486 and 586’s. Mainly DOS software, some Windows 3.1 stuff but mostly DOS stuff. Either Shareware or Freeware.
If you’re looking for modern stuff, you won’t find it here. We also are not a Gaming site, too many other sites offer that (Doors).
Browse, Download and Enjoy. Leave comments and I will completely Ignore Them! 🙂 Enjoy the BBS.
Running on a Windows XP and Mystic BBS software. Operating 25 hours a day, 8 days a week, 368 days a year. We’re Dedicated!
We also have a second BBS. That one is dedicated for those running old computers that may only be able to show 40 characters across, and maybe non-ibm or non-ansi capable computers. It is anotherbbs.bbsindex.com Port 992.

Alcoholiday BBS! Est. 1995, reborn in 2001, and born yet again in 2015. Running Mystic on a Raspberry Pi 2, a dozen message nets, three stylish themes (custom art by Blocktronics, Impure and more). “The online cyber keg party.”
Alcoholiday is not an “art board” per se, but a board that appreciates good art — both of the “Amiga ASCII” and CP437 ANSI variety. Our main theme is called “Danger Girl” and is inspired by deadly women of comic books.
“The West Gate” is Alcoholiday’s more mystical alter-ego, based on the symbolism of Freemasonry, and is available as a theme at login. We also have a “Minimal” theme that is purely ASCII-based for ease of use with non-ANSI terminal clients, and limited mobile apps.
Alcoholiday has very few file areas, as we believe the spirit of the traditional bulletin board is within its message bases. However we are an official iMPURE Ascii distribution site, and we do feature a handful of unique file bases for retro esotericism.
We suggest Netrunner or Syncterm for the best experience. Both clients will automagically change fonts so ASCII resembles its traditional Amiga font, and ANSI blocks are represented properly. The browser-based terminal below will also work, but results may vary.
Alcoholiday wouldn’t exist without the help and support of a few folks: Caphood, Jack Phlash, Griskokare, Luciano, g00r00, Avon, Metalhead, Gryphon, H7, Skuz, Shooter, Weatherman, and many others.
