    Once upon a time I was a telnet chat rat. I came across a website I made about 20 + years ago that listed many telnet Havens. Just curious if anyone remembers using these sites. If you're born 1980 or later you probably wouldn't know them.

    Here are the sites I found on my havens.html page:

    Melroseplace telnet://curryco.they.org:4616
    Metaverse telnet://curryco.they.org:1111
    Freezone telnet://walker.cioe.com:2525
    St James pad telnet://weeble.oooarrr.cx:9999
    Hotel California telnet://rootaction.net:6969
    illusions telnet://illusions.zeal.net:6969
    Int'l Haven O'Phat (Hemi) telnet://hemi.com:7767
    Jade telnet://jade.io.com:6969

    Umm..... I actually dialed up other people's BBSes. I found out about them from people that hungout at a local Arcade.

    Yeah, me too.

    In fact, I don't remember seeing a telnet URL like that. Writing it that way looks like how you would access it if you have an internet connection. But I either dialed direct to the BBS or later connected to some site through my compuserve account using compuserve software.
