    I ran WWIV at age 15 in 1995.

    I ran WWIV at age 23 in 1993. Had to start somewhere. :)

    Ponder, first thing I ran was probably remote access somewhere about 1990, maybe 91 at age 20-21. Had to get my own phone line...

    I got my own phone line as well. It gave me an excuse to get one :)

    I ran WWIV from 1988-1990 (ages 18-20). We're apparently the same
    age. :-)

    You're three months younger than me. :)

    am i the youngest here with '81?

    If this is a WWIV party then I guess I am out. :)

    I ran GT Power at ~18 in 1988. I am still running it on another system.
    I tried a system called Colossus before GT, but could not get it to answer
    the phone properly. There were many GT systems in my area at the time so
    it was easy to get help.


    ... So easy, a child could do it. Child sold separately.

    Lol I think I was right there with you, maybe even closer to 1989 ... To make you feel better, I ran C-Net in 1985 or 1986, I forget which year..

    If I had convinced my parents to get an Atari 1030, I'd probably have run an AMIS or other Atari 8-bit BBS around that time (1985) too.

    p.s. I had to get my parents cooperation to buy stuff from overseas because Atari computer hardware was not readily available here in the Philippines at the time.
