I enjoyed playing BBS door games as a young teen from around 1992 until 1998.
Years later, I helped create some Wikipedia articles about several games I loved and remembered. Unfortunately, today these articles are being deleted; the articles' subjects have been deemed non-notable.
Creating Break Into Chat was my response to these deletions.
Break Into Chat consists of:
- A wiki, created by forking all of Wikipedia's BBS door game-related articles
- A blog, where I write about computer history, with an emphasis on BBSing and Atari, since those were my two loves.
My goals for the wiki are to:
- preserve the BBS door game articles
- expand the articles, using high-quality sources
- in future, expand the wiki to cover all aspects of BBS history
Apart from Break Into Chat, I have several other little mini-pages about aspects of my own personal BBSing history. These can be found here:
- The SRE Text Series -- A series of textfile stories inspired by several games of Solar Realms Elite and Space Empire Elite I participated in.
- Politics Online Magazine -- A short-lived political mag I edited and distributed on St. Louis BBSes.
- My ANSI art -- A collection of some simple ANSI advertisments and signatures I created in the 1990s.
