Welcome to Convolution

Welcome to the Convolution Bulletin Board System (BBS). This BBS is an ANSI styled system reminesent of the original dial-up BBSs in the 1980s and 1990s. This BBS can be accessed via telnet and ssh. A popular ANSI telnet client for Windows is mTelnet. SyncTerm is also popular.

Here you can play numerous door games, visit message networks, chat with other members, and more. I've added a lot of "daily" content, such as daily trivia, neverending story, oneliners, etc. to give another reason to call every day. Of course, this can all be bypassed if you want to head straight to the games via fast logon.

Door game scores and news bulletins are viewable both on the BBS as well as this website.

hearted game of innocent childhood, the staff completely ignored the
colorful plastic balls bouncing off them and continued their macabre
meal until only a gleaming white skeleton remained where an attractive
nurse had been only a moment before. But wait, there was something
almost robotic in the movements of the hospital staff. Now I'd seen
the original Stepford Wives movie, and the sequel, and the remake, and
I'd spent a lot of time at Disneyland, and I liked to think I knew a
thing or two about robotic behavior. That was definitely what I was
seeing here, I knew. These "humans" were programmed to do what they
were doing--but why? Could it be part of some vast, poorly understood
