Introduction post 

Hi! I'm Mycroft. I've been a furry for nearly 30 years. I'm a greymuzzle by now.

I'm not too deep into the furry community, or any community really.

I'm a socially awkward nerd (white cis male/demiguy irl) that can sometimes get overwhelmed. Please say hi and get to know me before requesting to follow here, I take it as kind of an obligation.

the layers needed to get this thing on the internet is astounding

is there any off the shelf easy software to run a bbs from windows 10, preferably with the ability to run DOS door games?

if not, something that can run on winxp/32 in a VM

this is a whole lot harder than I remember it being 27 years ago

I'm having that extremely common urge that I'm sure all of us share regularly

you know, the one where you feel compelled to set up an old DOS BBS, complete with some popular door games, some downloadable shareware, and make it telnet accessible

yeah, that, I'm sure many of you have already done this a few times this year already

giant pet peeve: interviews where the interviewer asks a question that in no way ever could anyone conceive of it as a yes or no question, and the person being interviewed starts their answer with yes or no

ie "How long have you been doing this?" "Yes, I started about three years ago"

I'm too tired or brain foggy to concentrate on or do anything for long

but I'm not sleepy enough to take a nap

idea: a Bible video game that looks kid-friendly but eschews the common stories like Noah's Ark and instead is a collection of themes and story points that aren't really kid-friendly

If anything, some (not us personally) hate this holiday for that reason.
