The files in this archive are taken from the file section of The Cave BBS of Raleigh, NC, USA.
From December 1992 to February 9th, 1998, I ran a one-node WWIV BBS in Raleigh, NC, USA called "The Cave BBS." At its height it had over 1000 users, although definitely not all were active at once. The BBS was members of FIITA net, SWIPEnet, and CaveNet WWIV message networks at one time or another. I started with the BBS software WWIV 4.21a and slowly upgraded to WWIV 4.24a over the years, stopping at 4.22, 4.23, etc., along the way. The BBS phone n umber's last four digits were "1750." We had many message bases, many online games, a rather large file section, and by the end, the BBS had racked up well over 10,000 calls. It was a fun and fascinating experience, one whose profound influence on my life continues to this day.

P.S. There is a new Cave BBS up now -- telnet to cavebbs.homeip.net port 23.

Ah yes, Virus Checkers!
Virus Checkers will often capture of a lot of old BBS files as viruses, especially virus sections, which were a real thing, traded and made available. If you're going to run old DOS programs in your DOS boxes, definitely be careful, but otherwise, just be aware this happens.
