Bulletin boards for knitters

  • Ron Parker runs the Fibernet BBS from Henning, Minnesota. The telephone number is +1 (218) 583 4337. The data lines accept modem connections from 1200 to 28,800 bps, 8N1. The bulletin board gets from 30-50 messages a day, and contains a lot of fiber-related freeware and shareware. If you send $5 and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Ron at Rt. 1, Box 153, Henning, MN 56551-9740, he will send you a diskette containing some neat programs, including one that you can use to read the bulletin board's messages offline. Access is free (apart from any long-distance charges); this BBS does not have access to the Internet. If you have any questions or problems, you can call Ron at +1 (218) 583 2419 between 7am and 7pm central time.
