The 'Command Center' for Castle Rock BBS

Specific Information

Additional Information

Castle Rock BBS is currently running under Ubuntu 18.04LTS/64bit. This allows us the freedom to run older (or should I say, vintage) programs and door games.


As you can see in the picture above, Castle Rock is running on the upper left monitor. I do run Mystic in 'server' mode, so that I am able to see what's happening.


The monitor on the upper right, is running Windows 7/32bit. This system is currently running hub 4 for fsxNet. More info about the networks can be found further down this page.


The two monitors on the bottom, are for my working computer. This is the system that I do my coding, as well as logging into Castle Rock BBS. This is also an Ubuntu 18.04LTS/64bit system.


BBS Networks


Recently, there has been some changes in the networks that are being carried at Castle Rock. Some of them either didn't have any traffic at all, or only 'bot' messages. I couldn't justify continuing having them connected anymore.


Here is a list of the current networks that are being carried:

Fidonet

fsxNet *

RetroNet *

AgoraNet

DoreNet *

WhisperNet

DoveNet

SpookNet

SportNet *

VKRadio

SurvivalNet

Usenet newsgroups

(* indicates Castle Rock BBS is a hub for these networks)


RCS Software


Some of you might be aware of a few programs that have been released under the RCS brand. RCS was originally formed in 1994, as a business which built and sold PC computers, and offered in-home technical support. With the introduction of low-end, low-cost computers, there wasn't much call for custom built systems anymore. RCS has been raised from the ashes, to develop some software for those of you running Mystic BBS software.
