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

Reading Jason Scott's websites 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.
