    That was my 5 minutes of fame.

    You can add a few more seconds in one of the recent *new* BBS
    Documentary, I think.

    Really? I must have missed it.

    I'm pretty sure I saw your BBS logo at some point. Sometimes
    when the narrator goes on with general statements, he fills the
    screen with changing images and other media for barely 1 or 2
    seconds each. He also, runs a "Credits.." roll at the end of
    each episode.

    BTW, this is my first - hopefully successful - public post on a BBS in probably 27 years? :-)

    I really liked the 1st two. The interview style with some
    sysops and users is pretty good. I like the interview with
    Shooter Jennings.

    The 3rd episode seemed to gloss over the messaging part too
    quickly.

    The series tries to be instructional, but not overly so. It's
    more about reporting on the state of bbsing as it exists today.

    I like it. But I also liked the original Jason Scott's BBS Documentary too.

    But for me, and I would expect many here, we grew up during the hey day of BBSs. Having a documentary that basically
    shows how BBSs survived and are even making a comeback is very interesting.

    It's also very nice to put a face to the name you see on the computer screen.
