The Official DDial Homepage
CHUD DDialer


Welcome to the DDial online community. Diversi-Dial has been with us since the early 80's and is still alive and active today! From vintage systems to new modern remakes, the DDial community is active on several different platforms. This official homepage is the hub for all DDialers and STS'ers to come together as a community to share the past, DDial in the present, and take part in the future as DDial continues to evolve into the modern world.

After 20 years we finally have a Facelift. We have made modern updates to the architecture while trying to maintain a look and feel that reflects some of that retro memory; a tricky feat, but we hope you enjoy the updates =) If you wish to send feedback or are interested in submitting page content, contact us.

During 2022 much has happened in the DDial community. We have seen a resurrgence of acitvity brought on by Magviz as well as the fulltime linking of telnet DDials brought to you by Cotosnet. It has been an exciting year to see so much acitivity and interest back online, and we look forward to what's next.

ENTchat is Back! After nearly 20 years we have resurrected the first PC Clone DDial and it's fully linked up with Cotosnet. Look further down the page for access links.

We have plans for a couple new sections to add to the site that will encourage user participation. Will keep you posted here and on our email newsletters, and again if you have any suggestions let us know!

An Original STS is in the works and soon to be released. Marc has worked extremely hard to resurrect his old system The Jungle and so far it's working fantastically. Stay tuned for the official launch date!


There are currently 5 (almost 6) platforms that are online and active, including original vintage systems, telnet systems, and web accessible systems. All plaforms with the Icon are permanently linked togther, which means logging into any one of them connects you with ALL of them.

Retro Dial (telnet/web)

Retro-Dial is a telnet-accessable chat server based on the Diversi-Dial system created by Bill Basham in the early 1980's. The look and feel of Retro-Dial is almost exactly the same as D-Dial, as are many of the commands, although some command structures have been changed and some new functionality added. R-Dial is also completely link compatible with D-Dial.

--> Quote of the Day

  Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change.
        - Thomas Hardy

    DDial was a Tao in history that defined us, and even though we pioneered the social horizon we navigate today, the world got too big too fast swallowing it up to create bigger, better, faster, and never to be realized save the select few. [Winter]
