Well, Most of the club members have non-Atari modems... Why stick to only
Atari when there is an alternative that will do a better job of letting us
make the most of our Atari's? I see the BBS like a modem; doesn't need to
be an Atari to host Atari discussions.

In any case, it's kind of a moot point as ABACUS now supports Mac and PC
users. We decided that the true value in the club was the members. We
knew each other, and enjoy our company, and don't want to lose that just
because some have moved on to another platform. So now we do everything.

Something to think about as an alternative to letting a good club die out.
