Interesting stories, not much about BBS's
Always fun to listen to these guys talk about their lives, and this guy, from his account, invented the first BBS at the same thing Ward was developing CBBS but outside of those very very early days he really want 5 into BBS's so not many stories to be had.
Great stories about old tech though, did get a kick at the end when he said he wouldn't be able to talk about anything for 5 hours when this guy definitely has a gold medal or two in rambling in his trophy case. It was fun watching him get caught in an exaggeration/lie at one point talking about people calling him his voice line to yell at him to get the BBS up, then asked how they got his voice line, to which he says it's in the RCPM list and that's where people got the number, and then after that says he has a dedicated line for data calls and another for voice, at which point you can see Jason starting to piece together that this guys' story is full of holes and likely a fabrication and just changes the topic. It happens so often with other people in this series that it was nice that the natural line of questioning from Jason, with no intent to call him out on his BS, just let him to trip up his story so badly that it became clear he was making it up.
