Tunnel of Wares   (TOW)

Tunnel of Wares

BBS Type :
Illegal, Wares

Trivia :
This BBS changed hands two times.

The board was launched in November 1987 by Pathfinder and soon became one of the elite boards of New York.

The board started with The Survivors but then moved onto Eagle Soft Incorporated. Towards the end of 1988 the BBS died as most ESI members moved to Amiga. Later the hardware/software was sold to Narcissus (who renamed to Slayer and then finally to Stormrider). He improved the BBS by adding Cyborg modded C*Base and JiffyDOS.

It was then given to Zirco to take over, who relaunched it on August 1st 1993 running UCBBS 1.3, 40MB CMD HDD and Aprotek 2400 baud modem.

Don‘t think the timelines in the trivia are correct. In 1991 I was travelling the US and visited some sceners. I unfortunately missed Pathfinder who was living in New York. Back then he was running Tunnel of Wares for ATC (the version of ATC without Pudwerx) on UCBBS 1.3. He took down his BBS in 1991 and sold it
