9600 USR-HST Bulletin Board Service 9600 USR-HST
For those of you with modems we offer free access to our conference
located on the MEGABYTE IMAGE CENTER BBS in Tulsa Oaklahoma. The "MIC"
is a full service PC-Board BBS operated at 19,200 - 1200 bps with USR
HST modems.

We have two conferences, #3 and #4, for TGL+.

Conference #3 is for callers looking for information on TGL+ and conference
#4 is for registered users of TGL+ to ask questions, report problems,
download upgrades, exchange ideas, and find the latest utilities for graphics
manipulation. Since #4 is for "registered users" access will take a few
days after you call. We cannot allow access until we receive your
registration card.

The TGL+ package contains two registration cards, one to be mailed to
HARVARD SYSTEMS, and one to be mailed to TerraVision. The one for
TerraVision is the one that will get your support and BBS access started.
Be sure to allow ample time for your registration card to arrive before
calling and asking for access to the support conference.
Since we offer upgrades via the support conference there will be no
exceptions to the registration process.

The phone number for the MIC BBS is 918-298-1901. You can leave
messages to me (Jim Alexander) in conferences #3 and #4. Please leave
any messages for me directly to my name and not as sysop comments. I do
not read the sysop comments since I am not the "main sysop". If you
think it necessary you can always make your message private when
addressed to me.

The MIC BBS is a "pay bbs". As such there are many users of the system.
If you experience delays in getting through do not complain to the sysop,
since you are not being charged for access it would not be appropiate
to complain.

We will be installing a new BBS system here at TerraVision and also one
at HARVARD SYSTEMS in the next few months. This will make electronic
access more readily available. I will post the additional phone numbers
on the MIC BBS when they become available.


For those of you with a Compuserve account we support TGL+ via the PICS
FORUM. When you log onto CIS just type GO PICS and you will end up in
the GRAPHSUPPORT FORUM of PICS. PICS is a three part FORUM made up of
GRAPHSUPPORT, QPICS, and GALLERY. Any messages that you leave for
support should be left in the GRAPHSUPPORT area. We check into the
forums at least once a day so you will get a quick reply to your
questions. While you are in the PICS FORUMS you can check out the large
selection of GIF files available for download. If you are looking for
colorfull and professionally created bitmapped graphics this is the
place to find them. If you are looking for a particular subject matter
just leave a message and someone will offer assistance. The sysop of
the PICS FORUMS is Larry Wood 76703,704. Feel free to leave him a
message and tell him what you think of the abundance and quality of
graphics offered for downloading.

For leaving messages to me (Jim Alexander) for support my PPN is 76370,271.



TerraVision, the developers of TGL+, provide the technical support for
the product. That is why you have two registration cards in your TGL+
package. Please be sure you mail both of the cards. Each one is
equally important. You cannot receive support without your "Support
Registration Card" on file with TerraVision.

Do not call HARVARD SYSTEMS for technical support !

Techical support is available from TerraVision only.

1. Voice Support

TGL+ registered users receive 60 days of free voice support.
You can call (404)-769-5641 between the hours of 1:00pm and
4:00pm EST for help with TGL+ during the first 60 days after
you purchase TGL+. Voice support will not be available unless
your registration card is on file with TerraVision. There will
be no exceptions to this policy so please don't ask.
After 60 days if you desire voice support then you will be
billed at the rate of $50.00 for each 15 minutes, with a 15
minute minimum. This is payable by Master Card or Visa only.
Please have your card number available when calling technical

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
