    3. Operations Overkill (online game)
    4. RA (Remote Access BBS Software)
    5. Frontdoor (Mail Exchange BBS Software)
    6. Commo (client software to connect to BBS)
    7. 2,400, 9,600, 14.4k modems (anyone use this before??)

    Micro Village in Funan brings in the USRobotics modems. Prior to that, most of the modemers (BBS Users) bring in directly from US or through some kind of mass order.

    I think the BBS scene went dead in 1995 when SingNet appeared. So, those born after 1980 may not know what is BBS. It's the father / grandfather of Online community / communications!!!
    Was on Teleview!

    Luckily, she never talk about 300 bps or 1,200 modem. If not, we will know her age...

    I think I'll probably sound very old if I talk about such things... damn..

    You're not alone .. I used to use a 300 bps on Apple II and subsequently upgraded to a 1200 on an XT. Used to chat and exchange ideas with BBS operators then.

    BTW the photo of Funan Centre is one that was renovated. I remember it was really dingy and dark in the original building, sometime in the mid 80's I think.
