Attention Russell Frey, Ronny Brodin, James Carr, and Brad Friedman:  This web site was put up on 2020-02-22 in an attempt to grab your attention so that you'd contact me at BobH (at)  I am interested in bringing PowerBBS back to life for hobbyists but that cannot happen without at least your minimal/brief assistance.  I've been so desperate to contact any of you (for many years) that I bought the domain and put up a web site that's been in the grave for 20 years after harvesting what I could off of the Internet Archive.      Guys - contact me!
