Sysop Chat

Phone calls were expensive, so I wanted a way to chat for free, and to this end I started my own system so that people would call me instead of me having to call other boards. It’s a bit silly to think about now, as instead of typing we could have just picked up our phones and talked to each other directly by voice, but somehow typing made it easier to open up and talk without reservation. Another thing I really liked was that it had a feature current chats are missing: when the other person typed you didn’t need to wait for them to hit “send”, rather you would see their typing immediately.
