So far this year has offered some exciting new updates. We have Three new DDial's connected to our network: Tanelorn NYC, Hard Drive Cafe and DenDial (see Active DDial's below for more info).

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.
