Seems like Brisbane shares an area code with the rippinest town; Boston Massachusetts.

Reading Jason Scott's websites http://textfiles.com got me all nostalgic about the great BBS days, and if there is one way to reconnect with the old BBS mates this is the way, I suppose.

Yeah I kind of stumbled upon this site googling the name "Oriental Crayon". I used to have a great time trolling the old BBSs. Luckily my grades never slipped even though I'd be up until 5am downloading warez + pr0n.
