Monday, October 18, 2004:

The BBS was down for about a week recovering from a nearby lightning strike.
The computer, monitor, keyboard, and mouse along with two tnc's and two two-
meter radios had to be replaced and all BBS software had to be re-installed
and re-started, and the Operating System was changed from DOS to Windows.

Join us in the PCL Packet Net any Monday night at 7 p.m. Central...
