BBS ANSI art - 1 - On Earth As It Is In Hell - ASCII zip comment made from ANSI login screen

The ASCII ZIP-file comment, converted from the logon ANSI Sam Watson & I created for my Virginia Tech BBS, On Earth As It Is In Hell, which ran from 1992 'til 1994.


My BBS seemed to be the largest social BBS at Virginia Tech, and through my activities, I ended up meeting a lot of people who would turn out to be decade-long friends. By 1994,things had died down a bit, as the internet was slowly becoming more and more useful.


I got the phone number wrong (232-, not 212-), but that turned out to be a good thing, as Virginia Tech dorms shared data and voice simultaneously on the same line. I would have been called by modems for 2 years if this had gone out to the world with the right number. For Virginia Tech purposes, only the last 4 digits mattered.
