Been on it?!? Heck, it was a leading cause of why I started my CBBS
system (CBBS/NW - ran for nearly 20 years). That is after I got my third
(expensive for the day) >$100 phone bill due to all the calls to Chicago!

I still have one of my early print outs from the original Chicago system!

1-312-545-8086... yes, I still remember the number... No, you probably
should not call it... <G>

Ward is a great guy. We managed to get together a couple of times over
the years. Never actually met Rany tho... Spoke to him on the phone a
time or two.
