The EAST BORDER BBS was the first and only Bulleting Board system for the whole Thraki (Thrace) continent of Greece. People could call and log into the system with their modems and read or write messages, news and download software and programs, play games and interact with each other.
A Bulletin Board System, or BBS, is a computer system running software that allows users to connect and log in to the system using a terminal program. Once logged in, a user can perform functions such as uploading and downloading software and data, reading news and bulletins, and exchanging messages with other users, either through electronic mail or in public message boards.
East Border BBS also offered on-line games, in which users can compete with the system or each other, and chat rooms, allowing users to interact with each other.
The node number was ( 2:410/201.0 ) which was registered under the Hellenic Fidonet.
FidoNet is a worldwide computer network that is used for communication between bulletin board systems. It was most popular in the early 1990s, prior to the introduction of easy and affordable access to the Internet. The network continues to operate but has shrunk considerably, primarily due to the closing of many BBSes.
The EAST BORDER SysOp (System Operator) wasMoschos Koupoukis and the board was running over a 286 and later a 386 processor computer using FrontDoor, RemoteAccess and Binkley mail software.
