Jason Scott writes "I have opened a new WWW site dedicated to the textfiles (also known as "g-philes" or "etexts") that populated the BBS World of the 1980's. Of course, in doing so, I have also gathered together many, many files from the 60's, 70's, and 90's. The purpose of this is to provide a central repository for this important part of online culture to bring back memories or show where we came from. The site is called www.textfiles.com and is well past 9,000 textfiles online. "
