Not impressed! He's using all kinds of modern hardware and telephony 
tricks. The VCFed BBS, under development, will be a REAL dial-in 
service. There will be telnet access too, but no microcontrollers or 
modern translation adapters or anything of the sort. Just a bare-metal 
MS-DOS server, MajorBBS software, an analog PBX with GSM antenna, and 
Internet access.
