    ..Recently, a few of those sysops found their way into my
    FB BBS group, BBSing 2.0, and were surprised that I was
    still running a BBS.

    And.. do *they* still operate BBSes? Was the surprise that YOU
    operated a BBS or was the surprise that BBSes are still around?
    Are they going to join the gang in Micronet?

    I told them I've run a BBS for half of my life now and no
    reason for me to stop yet (though I have given it some
    thought lately due to my situation).

    I don't remember that my BBS needed much hand-holding. It pretty
    much did what computers where desinged for, automation.

    Same for my boards both back then & now. I automate as much as possible and also try and build in some sanity checks. There's just something beautiful about a well crafted batch file (or bash script) that does everything you need it to do.

    Of course no amount of batch files can account for my bitch of a sister turning my computer off just to spite me...
