Eww Wildcat! How do you know it's a shareware board? Wildcat :-)

Telegard... those were the days (Except the single line limitation.)

Actually, AFTER my years doing the BBS thing I have to say eSoft TBBS was 
the most impressive thing for me looking back. 64 14.4k lines on a single 
486SX !! Since it handled the task switching internally, and I think they 
used buffered Digiboards. Pretty cool.
