Hello, and welcome to Daxal Communications. First off, let me say I'm glad to share with you why Daxal Communications was created. Back sometime in 1994 the Internet was in its infancy. The public was just beinging to become aware of it. Those of us in the BBS (Bulliten Board System) community knew it was coming far too fast. The digital communications landscape was changing everywhere. The "big boom" of e-commerse was just taking off, and it was climbing fast!
Far before Daxal Communications was organized, I had a desire to share the power of information systems with others. That's largley why I ran a BBS of my own (The Great Abyss BBS, in Provo Utah) for some time. I ran KBBS. We offered a few online games (known as "doors"), Utilities (Did you know ZIP was a file format before winzip ever existed?), Programming Pascal, C and Assembler. Some music files were also offered in the mod or s3m file formats. The BBS was king becuase it enabled locals to share data and its own type of e-mail. UUCP and .com was there, but only a few had access to it. Projects like the Linux kernel, GNU Software and the FSF (Free software foundation) were begining to emerge (and no, gentoo wasn't even an idea then). Other popular sites were just new to it all. IBM, Yahoo, Microsoft, they all had to start somewhere. Just look up their history on archive.org if you're ever courious.
I think the only point I've made, is that we, (the BBS Community) were activley engaged in sharing data. Most boards (BBSes) would not charge a dime. Of all the time we offered it, we never had a single subscription. Everything was out of pocket. As for the Internet, it was new, only accessable to some, and required a "geek" to use it. We hope that's not the case today.
Today, the information age has evlolved into a very different type of life of its own. Now Mom has a dot-com, and your brothers and sisters talk about their web sites. Instant messaging allows you to talk to anyone online, even hundreds or thousands of miles away, in a blink of an eye. Everyone has something to say, and something to find, it's contagious! Now you can research most any topic or problem with a few clicks of the mouse. Most subjects, you'll find more then you ever dreamed possible.
In closing, it's been a joy discussing the eariler days. I hope Daxal Communications, and the offerings we provide satisfy you need for "the net" today, as ours was for the BBS back then.Thank you,
