MMN (Mr.ManNET) started back in 1996 as a way to play with communications via modem (before the internet was truely a thing) and to smuggle in and out data from my classroom (this is what you get for leaving a modem open with a phone line kids).
The board became some what popular, and ran off of a few communications packages. But it wasn’t until 2007 when I could finally afford to buy Wildcat! WINServer that the dreams all came true.
Granted the BBS scene is much smaller than it used to be, but I like my board and gosh darn it, did I spend many years getting here, so I ain’t gonna give up now.
The board is currently up in the Google Cloud, which is going to come back down to a PC in my tiny Parisien appartment at some point, so enjoy this speed while you can. Although, lol I have fibre, so it’s just as speedy.
Another milestone for this board is when mrman.net finally became free in March 2014, I managed to snag it at a domain auction for 14$. Which is good since I now use the BBS’s old domain mmn.on.ca for the business side of MMN.
