Re: Back in the day

And I'm pretty sure that I had something that looked a lot like email on the various BBS's that I inhabited in the early '80s.

That was FidoNet... And it wasn't just an e-mail system, it could send files too. Several very famous (At the time) BBS games (Door games) where international in nature, you could "attack" other servers running that game if they were on the Fido Network (or one of the clones). Attack notifications could take a day or two to come back to you though :)
