Default Does anyone still actually have Dial-in?

no, im not talking about dialup.

some of the older members may know what im talkking about, but remember those old school message boards where you would have to dial the boards' phone number to view/post? and they were text only?

man, those were the pwn.

I am not exactly sure what you are talking about. Did you dial the number, and then say your message? Or was that just a way of encrypting data?

Whatever it was, this is better.

On the old bulletin board systems where the servers had modems themselves and you had to dial into them to exchange data. Obviously only 1 person could connect at 1 time

I dial into my work's network, so I can access emails etc, but they are currently upgrading it so I can hook in through a front webpage....

It basically all died out by 1998 when dial up and eventually dsl/cable took over.
