Here's a cool nostalgic documentary on BBS'S apparently this is only part one.

From the description of the video
"Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) were what people went online with before the web. This multi-part documentary shows you what BBS's do, why they are still relevant and fun to use today.

The documentary interviews some users and system operators, both young and old. Crazy as it may sound, BBS's are actually still around today and can be accessed via the net. BBS's offer information and provide mail systems that are away from the prying eyes of Facebook and Google. They're a very sociable place to be, with messaging & chat.

They have art unlike any you've ever seen and some really cool games and mods. Think of the best bits of E-mail, usenet, >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk, Facebook Groups, filesharing and a few more besides. Package it all in one area, with a really cool retro aesthetic and you have a BBS. People run BBS's today because they are passionate about engaging in a community of people with similar ideals, something they won't get anywhere else."

あなた日本人はいくつかの素晴らしいウェブフォーラムを持っていました。 PHANTASY STAR ONLINEのフォーラムにアクセスしているときに、かなりの日本語を習得しました。

はい-それらは時代でした。大阪ナイトフォーラムはずっと前に無効にされて以来、そのようなものはありませんでした。良い日。

Back to the BBS: "The Return to Being Online" airs it's third premiere episode at 8PM UTC/ 12PM PST/ 2PM CST, Saturday 13th March.
View: https://youtu.be/VpFaoLPPRGc

This episode of the documentary covers Privacy: why using a BBS might be a great alternative to using social media etc, in order to protect your rights to privacy and not have your potentially sold for advertising and other more nefarious purposes.

It also features a session on BBS messaging: echomail message forums/groups that are kind of like the facebook groups equivalent on a BBS. There's also private email messaging, known as 'netmail'. Both of these are demoed so you can see how to use them.

Finally, it features a short section on how to get your favourite retro computer, such as a Commodore 64 or Atari on your wifi network, and on to a BBS, using modern hardware such as the WiModem232!

これは面白いシリーズで、今のところ間違いなく楽しんでいます。私たち全員が知っていて、その日に使用したものを振り返って、それから忘れてしまったのはクレイジーです。この男の他のビデオもかなり良いです。
