This is a cool idea. Bruno Antunes took a MiST and turned it into an Amiga BBS!

Not only that, he wrote a massively detailed article on how to set it all up, with over 90 images and 3 videos. So presumably others can follow in his footsteps now. What an ingenious idea.

I'll have to connect to it this weekend and give it a spin with my A3000. =)

Awesome. What BBS software is that? DLG pro? C-NET amiga?

I think he says in the post that it's called Zeus.

Hmmm...It'd be interesting to give that a go on a real Amiga.

Can't wait to pop on there, got a wireless card winging its way to me through the post for my A1200!

Seems like there is only a demo version available for download.

By the way tlgrooms, I've promoted your BBS today on Twitter. Hopefully your traffic doesn't get too wacky. May pop it in a few other places =)
