Dear SysOp,

Thank you for inquiring about the Hayes SysOp Program! The Hayes SysOp
Program offers a very attractive full featured program for BBS System
Operators. The Program includes special SysOp pricing for qualified SysOps to
purchase hardware and software directly from Hayes at prices
significantly lower than retail pricing.

The ONLINE WITH HAYES BBS (1-800-US-HAYES) is your toll-free source
for Hayes Technical Support. This allows you full access to all the
Technical notes and bulletins within the Hayes File Library. Once
registered and we receive your order for any Hayes high speed modem, you
will be granted toll-free access to the SysOp's Forum. To preview the
SysOp's Forum you may call on the toll line at 404-HI-MODEM
(404-446-6336). The SysOp's Forum contains a variety of SIGs with files
and information on most of the popular BBS software packages. Hayes
maintains close contact with many BBS software authors and other
software developers within the BBS community to insure full-functionality
when used with their communications products.

The Hayes Sysop Program features the Hayes OPTIMA 288 V.FC + FAX
modem with data throughput capabilities to 230,400 bit/s (230.4 kbit/s)
using data compression. This external data + fax modem supports V.Fast
Class (V.FC) for 28,800 bit/s (28.8 kbit/s) data transmission; ITU-T
(formerly CCITT) V.42 bis data compression; ITU-T V.42 error-control;
and Group 3 fax using V.17 for 14,400 bit/s (14.4 kbit/s) fax
transmission. This product is fully compatible with the installed base
of V.32 bis (14.4 kbit/s), V.32 (9600 bit/s) and V.22 bis (2400 bit/s)
modems. In addition, the product will operate at 28,800 bit/s with
future Hayes products implementing the V.34 (V.Fast) standard once it is
approved. Hayes will make an upgrade to V.34 available. The special
Sysop program price on these units are $288 each.

Hayes also offers such products as our Hayes OPTIMA 144 + FAX 144,
Hayes ULTRA 144, Hayes Smartcom for Windows and Hayes ESP Communications
Accelerator at similar discounts under the Sysop Program.

This offer is valid thru Dec. 31, 1993.

Thank you for considering a Hayes modem for your BBS!

  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:
