The Blink Inc. BBS

Blink, Inc. has a free electronic bulletin board service (or BBS) for
the use of both registered users and non-owners of Blinker. All that is
needed to take advantage of this service is a modem and a PC with the
appropriate telecommunications software installed.

We have two USRobotics Courier 'HST' modems that should be compatible
with the following standards at the given data rate:

2400 V.22 bis

The line settings are:

8 data bits No parity 1 stop bit

Normal transmission speed is 2400 bps (bits per second) with up to 9600
bps available only to modems that support 'HST' mode. We do not yet
support V.32 and V.42 communication.
