8-bit Underground

8 bit underground is a community for discussion of hacking and phreaking in the 1980's and 1990's when PSTN was still alive and well.


@ c 8bu

welcome to the end.

8bit underground has been created to facilitate discussion about the golden age of hacking/phreaking/warez trading/bbs development/modems and to reconnect those of us who were (and are) involved in said subjects.

important dates here are february 16, 1978, the year 1958, the year 1974, June 3, 1983, june 1992 as well as many others.

this forum will be the home to the "mother of all hacking/phreaking and *underground* bbs program lists/archives and when possible will also host archives of said software along with much more.

so if 300 baud modems make shivers run down your spine, underground ANSI screens make your mouth water, and a wardialer program you've never seen before written for a commodore 64 makes your heart race this might be the right place for you! :)

this is not your son's internet.

this is the 8bit underground.
