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

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.

OMG! A friend and I were just chatting tonight about how we first met in the chat rooms on telnet in the early 90s ;) So for fun, I googled "telnet illusions" and found this chat :) I just had to respond, so I made an account here, of course using my telnet handle. LOL! All the chat rooms you listed were my regulars! In fact...St. James of St. James pad is still one of my online buds! (Just thru Facebook now. haha.) Some of my buddies on the chats were BladeRunner, Bover, St. James and Funguy :)

So...who were you? :D

I was known as Casper

I maintained a list of regulars and their picture on the webpage I had back in those days. BladeRunner and Funguy sound familiar but I could not find them on my webpage.

Blinkenlights is good stuff. I wasn't that big into bbsing when it was just dialup. I used to goto a bbs of a local user group and I think the local library. I was far morw into bbses in the 90s when I had a vms shell through my school. I had dozens of bbses defined in my login com. Ah, -memories.
