So, I’ve finally figured out the “niche” for the BBS I’ve been playing with: It’s a solar-powered BBS, running Synchronet! And, the only one 🙂
I think this will be a great learning experiment for myself, to see what real-world solar power operations is like. And, personally, I feel it’d be a great community experience for people who may be sick of the flashy “modern” social media networks.
I do know I get a feeling of “overload” when dealing with the modern web, often. Not to sound too elitist, but it used to require some thought and know-how to actually put information onto the internet. These days, everyone has a megaphone, and everyone is shouting into it, creating a cacophony of noise, with little to no signal.
Anyways, enough of my diatribe!
You can connect to the BBS by going to http://solarpi.net, and using the terminal emulator there. Or, you can connect with the telnet client of your choice. I suggest either Linux Telnet, or Syncterm. Syncterm can be downloaded from the BBS (Which offers an FTP service as well!). You can connect via telnet://bbs.solarpi.net
Hope you enjoy!
