Damn, Unfortunately, this 10th or so attempt of mine (3rd one that I leave up and not delete) to get YouTube to render the audio of this video properly failed once more.

Re-encoding did not fix the problem, re-editing or conversion had also no effect.

I uploaded the video in WMV, AVI (various different audio and video codec options), MOV, MP4, MPG and FLV format, all for no prevail. There is always an audio channel missing in the final version generated by YouTube. :(

I uploaded the exact same video as this one here to Metacafe, where the audio is fine. You can check it out for yourself here:


Normal Description Starts
I found a backup of my BBS (V2) and was able to get it running (somewhat). I recorded some of the screen sessions that you can have a look at how a BBS looked and felt like during the prime of BBSing.

V2 of my BBS Closed Society was not up and running very long so You will notice that it was not customized to 100% perfection yet, like most boards were after running for a couple years.

Check out this page (http://www.roysac.com/bbs.asp) at my site about my BBS "Closed Society" and the reasons behind V2 and the old Version 1.

The modem connection sound at the beginning is unfortunatelly not exactly the original HST or V32Bis connect sound, but it gets pretty close to trigger some memories hehe.

Have a nice trip back in time.
