Notes edit...

From December 1992 to February 9th, 1998, I ran a one-node WWIV BBS in Raleigh, NC, USA called "The Cave BBS." At its height it had over 1000 users, although definitely not all were active at once. The BBS was members of FIITA net, SWIPEnet, and CaveNet WWIV message networks at one time or another. I started with the BBS software WWIV 4.21a and slowly upgraded to WWIV 4.24a over the years, stopping at 4.22, 4.23, etc., along the way. The BBS phone number's last four digits were "1750." We had many message bases, many online games, a rather large file section, and by the end, the BBS had racked up well over 10,000 calls. It was a fun and fascinating experience, one whose profound influence on my life continues to this day. - Benj Edwards, 2009
