MY COMPUTER SETUP AS OF PRESENT

Lots of things have been changed within the setup you see here in this picture. Lots of misc items i am going to get rid of that you don't see, things that i have kept stored away for a few years and no longer need. Still hosting four commodore BBS's and One chat system on various computer hardware. The website is still going strong and plan on keeping it online for a real long time. DigitalDial ChatServer has gone through some changes as far as new sysOp commands and other features that consist of the control of unwanted bOts that attempt a connection. Hopefully as time passes i will eventually have even more room available and lesser things that won't clutter up or just sit around as i had it before. I'm getting older and makes no sense to keep any of it and would be better to pass them on to other humans of the same like and interest on retro computer and or software. Going to be working on some pictures and videos with a new nikon camera i purchased a couple of months ago and get into a new hobby of photography. So that's all of the news i have available here, more updates as time allows in the near not so distant future.

Diversi-Dial Forum - DDial!

Diversi-Dial Forum - DDial!


It’s a vanished era that history seems mostly to have forgotten. I always feel a wistful tinge of nostalgia whenever I think back on that time, and how pivotal it was in so many of our lives. It’s a sense of community that kids today will never experience because the ubiquity of the Internet and cell phones and texting saturates their lives in connectivity from the very earliest days of their childhood. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (progress and all), but it’s a wholly different experience.

Diversi-Dial Forum - DDial! Seems as if many of the Old SchOOlerz from way back when DDial was like "The American Idol" have since gone or past away. I can't even believe that I even host such a system 24hrs 7 days a week from my home residence, but yeah it's true! Looking back now I realize how relatively short and unique that era was, and how lucky I was to experience it, and how difficult it is to explain that to people who didn’t also experience it (“it’s a modeming thing, you wouldn’t understand”). It was at a brief but crucial juncture in our cultural history when technology was advanced enough to facilitate electronic communication but primitive enough to limit that communication in a way that kept it feeling “local” while inspiring in us a sense of ownership over the systems we used, not to mention an incentive for taking those connections offline and into the real world. I can still vividly recall getting kicked out of the mall by overzealous security guards on many occasions during BBS meets where I met some of my best friends for the first time (the details are a bit hazy but the contours of that precious memory remain).

I Adore My Commodore 64 & 128!

Welcome to my webpage that pays hommage to my favorite computer the Commodore 64!There's no other microcomputer in the history of the electronics industry that has sold more units than the C64. I'm very happy to say that I was part of that history, as I was one of the many lucky teenagers that got to grow up in the "golden age" of computing.
