Micropolis BBS

During the 1990s, the Internet was in its infancy. The medium of choice for many computer users were so called BBS, bulletin board systems, which could be used to send messages between users, share files and communicate in other interactive ways with each other. Micropolis operated its own BBS between 1990 and 1995 to offer tech support to users of Micropolis products.

BBS were usually accessed via dial-up phone lines. A computer used a modem to connect to the remote system and a terminal program was used to send and receive data to the BBS. When the Internet in form of the World Wide Web became accessible to a broader user base, the TCP/IP usage patterns quickly rendered the single point-to-point dial-up modem lines obsolete.
