I wanted to go multiline and bought The Majot BBS by Galicticom
I spent good money on that baby.

Probably the best hardware it ever ran on was a 386. Some version of DOS I
imagine. I think I only ever ran two lines. The board used to be listed in
the back of Computer Shopper. I think it was called the zotzBoard.
At first I ran that board out of a closet in someone else's apartment. Later
it moved to a bell towed at a local monestary where the transmitter for the
radio station I currently work for is located. This was before I worked for
the station though.
