It was about 1982 or 1983 - a good friend convinced me to get a modem. There was one BBS in the area at the time called NYBBLINK. Well a month or two after I got the modem NYBBLINK was disconnected.

So I cajoled my friend into writing a BBS platform on the TRS-80 Model III - thus was born Syslink. Syslink in turn spawned PowerNet and PowerCore which morphed into Intelecom Data Systems (IDS) owned by another friend.
