    LETS Forum BBS (Bulletin Board System) was started in April 1995 as a free to use amateur grassroots community resource, and was running 24hrs a day until 27th March 2002. It could be accessed by any computer with a modem by dialing direct from a Terminal Program (e.g. HyperTerminal, which comes as part of Windows 95/98 )

    The BBS was based near Falmouth, Cornwall, UK and ran on an Atari Falcon Computer. The main focus of the BBS was information about LETS and other community initiatives, but files available for download also included many shareware and public domain files for the Atari ST and Falcon computers, along with a fair number of files for the PC and a few for Apple Macs and Amigas.

    LETS Forum also participated in 2 amateur mail networks. Fidonet (a general interest worldwide network) – node 2:255/126, and LETSnet (dedicated to Local Exchange Trading Schemes, and started by myself and Allen Coates of Cider County BBS in Bristol) – node 567:443/1

    Though the original BBS is long gone, it was replaced by a standalone message board on letsf.co.uk in March 2002, now replaced by this new integrated board.

    Please note that you will need to register on letsf.co.uk if you wish to post messages in the forums.
