I was helping a friend Time Travel 20-25 years into the past and I was bringing the impossibly deep past into the present.

Well, as I made a short video on Vine telling ppl about it (who know nothing of BBS – one thought perhaps it had something to do with the Deep Web and Tor Browser. … and, in a sense, very loosely so. I gave him credit for trying – oh wait – train of thought, yes:

I told them I was helping a friend Time Travel 20-25 years into the past and I was bringing the impossible past into the present.

Also, I successfully migrated the BBS setup into a DOSBox now running under a Win98 within VMware… so… CONCEPT PROVED:

Web page –> Telnet through proxy server (fTelnet – and he does the SOCKS proxies too) –> Win7 –> Win98 within VMWare –> IP translated to Hayes Modem via DOSBox –> Pyroto Mountain.

Swap out any BBS for Pyroto Mountain and it works!

There’s the speed issue but that’s resolvable. Simply having the process working at all is very satisfying. Biggest credit goes to DOSBox..because all other methods for doing a Hayes modem emulation were failures, but DOSBox wins.
