RetroBridgeBBS (MacWorks w/Zterm)
« on: April 16, 2021, 12:19:46 pm »

Just saw this today: https://github.com/equant/RetroBridgeBBS saw it today.

Demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK541GMzuaE
You'd run this on a modern PC and connect it to your Lisa over serial, it then presents a BBS like user interface search engine on the classic Mac/MacWorks side.

This software runs on your modern PC and acts as a bridge BBS interface. Connect your retro computers to it (via serial) and download software from the internet using a period approriate interface!
This software will help you transfer software to your classic Macintosh (e.g. MacOS System 6, 7, 68k Macs, etc) using the serial port.  Very simply, this software runs on a modern host computer, and behaves like a BBS would back in the day.  You connect your Macintosh to the host computer using serial, and then, using your vintage computer, you can search and download files from online archives (e.g. Macintosh Garden, Mac Repository).  However, this "BBS" has only one user, you!
