    I don't see any messages posted by "bbsiochat" in there. There
    is an occassional post from someone using the id "Group"
    though. Is that you?

    Probably... Not sure if/how I can change it tbh.

    You don't have to change numbers. Why not continue your account
    as @azTracker1 ?

    Was able to recover it... my "number is banned" is the message I was
    getting. Likely a filter that trapped all the service number blocks
    (twilio, google voice, etc).


    In any case, the folks at Telegram are very helpful if you run
    into a ban situation and explain the circumstances. My number
    was banned at one point. My number is a standard number with my
    cellphone. By then, I had already installed Telegram on 3
    devices. I just wanted one more device. But as soon as I went
    to register/activate the installation, I got a "number is
    banned" message. :( But an email to Telegram Support sorted
    it all out within 12 hours.

    Yeah, it was un-banned the next morning.

    i made the mistake of letting this run when i was cleaning my pet's cages and my fishtank.

    he started getting really bad talking about this 18 year old woman he knocked up at 30, then showing his kid's pics and going on these rants about crazy shit. saying it's not his fault he can't keep a job or take care of his kids.

    he said baby momma's last name was sanford. i wonder if that was eli's sister. it's hard to make it out.

    i was like god damn dude. you should be on a government watch list.
    he wasn't that bad before, he must be using crystal meth or huffing.

    atleast he took down the confederate flag off the wall.

    Jesus fuck, that guy.

    how the hell did he get the source to ProBoard? A few years ago Philippe mentioned he wanted to give away the source code on Twitter, and a year later he said there were some copyright issues.

    ProBoard was the first BBS software I ever seriously ran, because all the BBSes in this area used it. (Mr. Homie's Neighborhood, which moved down to Milwaukee was one of them).

    I eventually moved to Synchronet in the late 90s and didn't really look back.

    i think someone just posted it on the internet. he has paid people for it in the past, or so he says so he thinks he owns it. he said he paid clawson money for it and he got an asm dump. pcmike looked at the paperwork and the signatures were all computer generated. he would talk about it on irc and i'd go back in the logs and catch him lying so who knows what the truth is.

    he obviously has mental illness and probably drug problems.
    night now he says he needs gofundme money to fight his ex in court because he has fleas.

    philippe did say he wouldnt give it out because of copyright issues.
    clawson's estate could sue over it being distributed. according to his obituary he has heirs. https://obits.mlive.com/us/obituaries/flint/name/patrick-clawson-obituary?pid=176308972

    yeah that's him. or i'm pretty sure it is. that's the obit that was announced back when he died.
    the radio and reporting stuff is stuff clawson was involved in.

    "The dating system will need need a complete rewrite. Making it 4 year dating only." - he only wants to date for 4 years!

    Hey, that project is marked as "completed" - so its done, right?

    I seem to remember there being a few ProBoard BBSes in my area in the 90s.

    I'd heard ProBoard started as a clone of QuickBBS. Similarly, RemoteAccess (which I had ran in the 90s) also was a clone of QuickBBS..

    he had the same middle name as this obit and his obituary was also posted in winchester,va so think this is the guy.

    someone posted it on facebook years ago.

    apparently he was loved by a lot of people which is in contrast to how he was to his customers. he was a real vicious person when dealing with the bbs community. people were very demanding back then, though.

    "Yes, it's legit, he "bought" the rights from Jeff Reeder, former employee of Telegrafix. Although I have my doubts about who actually had the rights to ProBoard after Pat died."

    So there we go. It's probably not worth persuing, although I do wonder how much that nutjob paid for it.

    I mean, he looks like he lives in a trailer park, so it can't be much...

    oh i remember that twist. who knows if it was really him though.
    i dont believe anything slasher says. he's so full of it it's incredible.

    he cant buy the rights from someone that doesnt own the rights, anyways.

    I mean, he looks like he lives in a trailer park, so it can't be much...

    that's giving trailer parks a bad name.

    He did invest a good amount of money in proportion to his likely net worth. If it makes him
    happy, its better than buying heroin or oxycontin.
