Classic Prodigy (and other) Posts Page


Due to a computer error with AOL in early 1999, some of the Classic Online Posts were wiped off the Web. It took me over three years going through dozens of disks and a slow computer to compile them here. I compiled them all on Yahoo/Geocities by 2002, but they announced early in 2009 that they were shutting down their free websites. By July 5, 2009, all the Prodigy Posts from there were moved here top my webs.com website. Some of the featured threads here include stuff from Prodigy, CompuServe, and my Delphi forum. Any of my old friends from these forums are welcome to download them if they can figure out how to do that without messing up the website. Most of these are saved as HTML or MS-DOS TXT for Internet viewing purposes.


As far as the fates of these old boards, my online forum on Delphi disappeared (along with my Delphi ID) in June 2005. Prodigy was bought out by AT&T/SBC/Yahoo (soon to be part of Verizon) and none of the bulletin boards are there anymore. AOL merged CompuServe with the Netscape ISP. AOL has forums, but nothing like what used to go on in the 1990s. And I rarely used my real name when most of the posts first appeared. But my real legal (or government) name is Thomas Donald Clarke, and in the past, I was known to use such names as Greg Sollenberger, Tom Kelly, Netscaper113, and my late father's name (Donald G. Clarke). I'm glad Steve Peak, Diana Pensabene, Glenn Markowitz, Mary McCullough, Jerry Vasilatos, Elyse Zois, George "JJ Meeker" Haygood, Mike McNabb, Joy Blanton, Gus Corso, Pete Hickey, the Donovans, and others played along. But I probably could have done without the online stalkers (Mark Pena, Thomas Davis, Gerald "Gerbil" Jones) and the whole Alyson Walansky/Danihottie mess. Also notable on a few of the posts is the presence of the late Terry Coppage, just before he started his infamous Bartcop blog.
