WAR DIAL

Post by Fast_Eddie »

Ok....way off topic here :wtf:
But who here remembers the term 'War Dial' and what it was?

No idea why but it just popped in my head from years past :rolling:

In the old days of BBS they ran on phone lines.....no internet. So unless you had more than 1 landline (phone#) your bbs could only have 1 user on it at a time. Someone came up with a program to dial a number over and over until it was connected. It was called war dialing :)

It also got a mention in the move ' War Games '
:eyes2: :yikes:
