Solar Powered BBS Online

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!

  1. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
