We're reconstructing THC BBS to be more bot-resistant. We're also working on new features.
THC Drinks - The bar is open!
Over 10,000 different ways to get yourself all nice and hammered. Like this whisky on the rocks.
Remember THC's awesome text file collection? For a short time in the mid-90s, THC was the largest text file BBS in the world. Most of the final THC-BBS text file collection, (plus several hundred thousand more), is still available at artofhacking.com.
Here's a sysop's-eye view of the dialup THC BBS in its final moments, circa November 1998. This was captured just before final shutdown, a few hours after the last phone line went out of service.
A few years later I got the idea to re-open as a web board, but by then, the thcbbs.com domain name had been taken by a chinese domain parker. Eventually they gave up on it, and by 2005 I was able to pounce! The result was an earlier version of this site, one that attracted about 1000 spammers for every real user. This may be because of the domain's shady history under its former owners. So I too ended up parking it! But now that it has aged, it's time to give the BBS another shot!
A word of caution for those of you who are new to THC: as a dialup BBS it was not exactly a family gathering place. You may see crude language and NSFW pictures and games here. That's how it was in the 90s and that's how it'll be going forward. If you're offended by crude language, please do feel free to get the fuck off my site.
The entire THC BBS site is optimized to look best in Firefox® 3 on a widescreen monitor.
