Re: And I thought my home bill was bad..

Didn't hit quite that high but only had to ding the phone bill once before my brother and I were given the okay to bring in our own lines to our basement shop. Got enough from hobbyist clients to cover costs on the hookups.

IIRC we ended up running a Hotmetal BBS on a IIGS and a Lava controller with a McGuyvered data cable to a shelf full of "retired" HDDs.

Harry Harrisons fictional character was our hero back then.
