It is good to see Eskimo North again. Are there any other old school users about?
Gnome of Zurich?
Still miss those days of wardialing and phreaking. Picking up a copy of 2600 doesn't cure me for long...

With respect to Glitch, last I heard from him was a good five years ago, and then he owned the cable company he had started working for.

I see Glitch from time to time, we talk fairly frequently - we are both in SoCal nowadays...
I'm trying to remember the last time I went to an Eskimo house party... 1985?
I miss the ol' days of PPS and others...

PPS was quite the creation, a multi-player game implemented on Apple II's with super-serial cards and custom assembly code stringing them together.
For all technology has brought to the table, that kind of creativity is rare.

Multi player game? Is this when it morphed from Pirates of Puget Sound to "Polynet Public Systems"? If that's the case, I had lost interest by that point and we were running Mac Cavern BBS.

It was still Pirates of Puget Sound when I was playing it. Four Apple IIe's strung together with super-serial ports allowing for multiplayer interaction.
