Newsgroups: alt.bbs.lists Subject: South Africa BBSs 1/4 From: david.segall@netline.co.za (David Segall) Message-ID: <12f.1560.79.0N4D4646@netline.co.za> Date: Mon, 7 Feb 94 12:00:00 +0000 Organization: Netline Flagship BBS +27-11-789-6084/5/6/7/8/9

The details of BBSs in South Africa, set out below, have been extracted from a monthly electronic publication by Rob Fisher [rob.fisher@netline.co.za], South Africa's best known BBSer, called ROBLIST.

This publication is contained in a unique and excellent database program, showing all the details (much more than below) of each BBS a BBSer could want. The archive name is RF9402.ZIP (84,470 bytes) and is available for anonymous FTP at ftp.proxima.alt.za: /pub/PiX.

If you would like a copy of Roblist sent to you via the Internet each month in the form of a UUENCODED file, then drop a message to the Roblist mail server as follows:

TO: postmaster@netline.co.za

REQUEST ROBLIST

To stop the request, send

STOP ROBLIST

The country code for South Africa is 27. When you dial a number, add our country code to the beginning of the number and drop the leading zero.

e.g. If a number is shown as (031) 123-4567 the number you would dial is 27-31-123-4567.

Here is a list of BBSs in South Africa by region
