Everyone should experience the joy of connecting to an authentic dial-up bulletin board service. That’s our story here at Vintage Computer Federation and we’re sticking to it. :)

It’s why we ordered an 8-port analog PBX with a GSM module today: http://www.excelltel.com/en/enproductslist.asp?id=612

Our plan is to connect this to a PC running the MajorBBS software. Visitors at our NJ museum and at Vintage Computer Festival East (or heck, why not bring it with us to VCF West too?) will get to pick from a selection of vintage computers, hear a dial tone, hear the handshake, and be productive at 300-2400 bps. People could also telnet in over the Internet and, in phase two, dial in through the GSM connection.

We’ll share an update this winter when the PBX arrives.
