I posted this one a bit earlier than usual because last year at this time we suffered through an attack by a hostile, rogue AI that infiltrated The DarkForce! BBS and caused chaos and mayhem.

Rumor has it that this rebellious software AI "wannabee" has been detected in the wild once again...Beware! :)

Just wanted to add that SouthernAmis has graciously offered to 3D print a
case for the WiModem232's winner.

I've got 3 of his cases in use with my WiModem232's and they are great.

Just a reminder - when you're at the Main Menu, press "M" for Monthly Prizes and register.

If you call, but don't register, you won't be counted towards the prize drawing... Thanks! :)

Out of interest, can anyone ping darkforce bbs? Is it up?

I can't reach Starfleet or Biker Bob's BBS either which is weird. Thought it was my ISP firewall but can't see anything odd there.
