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.

at me and said helpfully, "Once you get past the 'eww' factor, the
eating of insects is nutritionally sound." Now I'd heard of insects
being ground into flour and made into tasty muffins and other similar
food items, and understood well that if only the human population
would turn to insects for food, hunger would be a thing of the past,
but there was my missing jaw to consider. Where was it, by the way? I
looked around and finally located the cadaver'
s jaw, still in its bag, on a small metal table next to the operating
table, where I was safely under general anesthesia. Could this whole
episode have been a vivid anesthesia-fueled hallucination, or was it
