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.

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
conspiracy involving all the emergency-room personnel? What if Jan and
Dean were in on it too? Whatever happened, though, I figured I'd be
better off on the gurney. But where was it? I looked around the scenic
campground and soon found it over by the barbecue grill. But wait--
was that a human arm on the grill? Closer examination revealed it was
