Barnyard was a BBS system. It was based out of
Pottstown, in southeastern Pennsylvania. It was one of many BBS's in
the area, but it was one of the largest.
I started the Barnyard back in 1993. I was still a
kid at the time. I put a lot of years into making the Barnyard into
the best place that I could. It offered things what were rare in
those days, such as:
- Over 1 gigabyte of storage (remember, this was a long time ago)
- An interlinked gaming network (compete against other BBS's)
- An interlinked message system (conversations across multiple BBS's)
- An interlinked email system (email across multiple BBS's)
- Many interactive games available
Barnyard existed until mid 1999, when a tragic accident
ended it once and for all. The computer that was Barnyard was
damaged, and the lights went dark.
However, all is not lost. For that matter, very
little is lost.
I kept solid backups.
For anyone that remembers the Barnyard, welcome home.
For anyone that never visited back then, take a look through the archives
to see what you missed.
