interesting thing we had on the access system two things actually... one was
a bbs with 100 message boards, mail system and vote and a multi user chat
that worked through writing and reading a disc file......

the other was a giant space war game that had the universe held in a
matrix in a disc file.... before I got lock feet for the 2883 we would have
to come in a kick it back into place after the local kids spent all nite
playing the game.... I wonder if my old tapes will still load.. guess I am
looking for a tape drive that will hook to a pc with controller ready to go
turnkey... any suggestions?
