From: visitor Subject: NAMES & SIZES OF NETWORKS Date: Sun Jul 30 08:53:50 1989 First, I understand that there are networks of bulletin board systems such as FidoNet, PunterNet and RapNet. Are these the only networks or are there others? If others exist, what are their names? Secondly, how many bulletin boards are members of each network? Finally, can you provide the name and data telephone number, of the local contact, for each network? ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Mon Dec 14 11:51:03 1987 ** I know of one for sure: Railnet--883-6298 but have not researched its size. Also, from its title, ST Guild--267-5022 may be a network. Good luck finding more. (Maybe the above will have referrals.) Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking. I have called Railnet since the last answer and discovered: 1) Railnet accepts messages related to railroading, only, but 2) has a list of local boards under Options/Features that includes network affiliations. 3) There are many local Fidonet BBS's, of which one is 942-3389 4) There is a "Collie" (?) (946-2980 among others) affiliation. 5) Other affiliations are listed that I didn't catch. Again, good luck with your networking! 15 December 87 Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271
