Checking out what old BBS numbers are now linked to is interesting. Most are just private residences while a few are businesses

Wish I remembered which one it was, but there was one number which goes to a voicemail and it says it was formerly a BBS

@cypnk a German ISPs dial up number was still active in 2017 (I didn't have any computers with a working modem nor a password to try it out though)

@vfrmedia @cypnk I think in Poland you can still dial 0202122 with username ppp password ppp to get online. This little thing (no signup whatsoever) propelled the country into the Internet era immediately.
