Unfortunately, I got into BBS's in the Spring of 1990, so in Louisville 
there wasn't much left for Apple II users. There was one BBS run by the 
local Apple users group, but I have no idea what software they used. I 
actually enjoyed BBS's more when we switched to PC's because I knew I 
could actually use some of the programs in the download areas.
