    Still I like the idea that folks can fire up an old machine and actually have a place that they can connect to with it. :) So, I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Only thing I worry about (knock-on-wood!) is what happens if the modem ever stops working. :o

    I'm working on getting my system on line. One of my walls is that I only ha one analogue line comming into the house.

    Another wall, is that I don't have that much unique content on my board at t moment. On my website, I had generated hurricane tracking maps for about 9 years, until my job got to be too much a job and took my personal life away from me. I'm in recovery now. I'm limiting time spent at work and I'm rebuilding the hurricane site from the ground up using new technologies. I' looking at porting the products created on that site to Jay's Cafe' and then flipping on the dial-in line.

    I have additional thoughts about using it as a information dial-in repository/communications hub in the time of disaster recovery. I live in South Eastern Louisiana and when the storms hit, generally, all that is available are phone lines.

    Making it a hub, connecting it to information sources, such as HAM & Datapackets, and a generator for power, would give me all the tools to make a information stronghold in post-disaster recovery. It's a big dream for a hobby, but I have been assembling the parts and am getting hopeful that it could be pulled off.

    Thanks,

    THIS is a GREAT idea. a server you can dial into to access information when all other lines are out. I plan on actually getting another landline in addition to our Time Warner Cable service to run my Raspberry Pi BBS on. I would definitely like to see what you're setting up come to life!!! keep the landlines alive!
