The Basement Theory is a re-envisioning of the dial-up BBS I ran in the 1990s. Originally running in the local-calling area for Scioto County, Ohio and northern Greenup County, Kentucky, The Basement Theory existed under three BBS names: The Cool (1993-94), The Basement Theory (1994-95), and A Saucerful of Secrets (1995-97). “The Basement Theory” is surely the most remembered name by the old users, and is why it’s the “new” name, today.
The current version of The Basement Theory borrows from old backups of the original BBS to create its theme and attitude. Much of the old data is available to view or download from the BBS. In fact, the current ANSI menus are the same ones as used on the BBS in September 1995, according to the file dates of the backed-up ANSIs.
Of course, even though the board is an admitted exercise in nostalgic self-indulgence, The Basement Theory‘s main goal is to be a contributing part of the current BBS scene. It belongs to DOVE-net, FidoNet, and Agoranet, in case you’re looking for a node to participate in the BBS message networks. It also runs several door game favorites, including games still being developed, like Rick Parrish’s modern port of Usurper. There are even new, ongoing archival projects, such as the Animation File Archival Project (GL/FLI/DL) and the Exec-PC Graphics Archive.

Valhalla Home Services went online on April 12, 1991. At that time we used GAP software, then switched to Remote Access, and now we are using Synchronet. Valhalla is a family orented BBS, with a gaming theme. We have over 150 Registered OnLine Games. In addition to the games, we have a large message area featuring many networks. For those of you looking for those older files, we feature a very large filebase. Drop on by, and take a look.
Guardian of Forever began as a place for me and my kids to play games, write messages, and have fun. Recently I have begun building my own doors and games: Sports Stats, an informational door that gives standings and scores for the four major American sports; and Doubles, an ANSI/BBS port of the popular game 2048. The BBS also hosts some in-progress experiments and demos. You are welcome to try them, and I’d love to hear feedback. But they are constantly changing, and at times they might be broken. Guardian of Forever is also now a distro BBS for the Mistigris artgroup. You can find many of their artpacks in the file transfer section.
