BBS UTILITIES

Firelink BBS

Firelink was a popular Bulletin Board System (BBS) established near Glasgow, in the west of Scotland, covering the local call areas of Glasgow, Lanarkshire and Monklands. It ran successfully for over five years before closing in December 1996 due to advances in technology and the wide availability of internet access at local call rates. Firelink developed into a general BBS with special areas for Pascal and Delphi programmers. We developed a number of BBS utility programs easing the burdon on BBS Sysops. These utilities are still in use today and can be freely downloaded using the links below.

Free BBS utility programs

The following programs were developed to assist the BBS Sysop in the day to day running and administration of the mail, file and news systems required to operate a successful BBS.
