ConstructiveChaos BBS
Finding a Cure For Mundanity

About this site

This site is the home of the ConstructiveChaos bulletin board system, much like the kind one would connect to via dial-up during the '80s and '90s before the internet became mainstream. Bulletin boards were a fun, popular way for users to connect, post messages, download files, and play online games.


How to connect

The easy way...

The easiest way to access the BBS is to use the in-browser terminal client. It can lag from time to time, but it gets the job done.

While it is possible to use the in-browser terminal client in a mobile browser, a desktop browser is highly recommended for the best experience.

The recommended way...

You can also connect via telnet using any terminal program of your choosing.

SyncTERM is a great terminal that runs on Windows, Linux, or macOS, and resembles the fancy old DOS terminals from back in the day. Once you install it, just point it to conchaos.synchro.net (default port #23), and it will do the rest.

More ways...

If you have an Android phone, there are several terminal clients available on the Google Play store, such as ConnectBot.

There is also a client named Termius on both Google Play and the Apple Store.

Apps for mobile devices tend to be, well, weird. So your mileage may vary with these methods.

Even more ways...

If you're into retro-computing (and why wouldn't you be?), you can even connect to BBSes from older computers like 486s, 386s, IBM PCs, TRS-80s, or even Commodore 64s using specially designed RS-232 devices via telnet.
