Actually, it was officially 'GEnie' -- because the commercial BBS was
made more economical [unlimited night access and a local access number]
by the usage of infrastructure which belonged to General Electric and
those were GE's off hours. I was never Prodigy or CompuServe or any of
those others, only GEnie. I also didn't really do very much on local
bulletin boards - but I spent a lot of time on GEnie because it had a
very active Atari ST contingent.
The Atari sysop that I remember best was Darlah, can't remember her last
name just now. Started with a P I think.
Atari's name was associated with games, but the 'believers' in the
system [my OS is better than your OS] believed in the OS and the
hardware because the value and the interface were better than WinTel or
Mac or Amiga of the same generation. I never had anything to do with
games, and I had about 5 different STs, 3 1040s and 2 Megas. At one
location I had 2 of the 1040s networked via their midi ports.
I still have a lot of that hardware piled up in a closet.
