ANSItex is a fusion of ANSI and Videotex.

I frequented an Australian Videotex service in the 80’s called Viatel. I’ve been inspired to recreate a Videotex service, and I started out building OzTex.

So Videotex was limited with 40 characters and some basic graphics - I thought I’d try putting an ANSI presentation to it, and I’m using the same code to make ANSItex available. Its still work in progress, but you’ll get an idea on it below.

If you are interested in taking a look at what I have so far, just press the Connect button below, and create an account.

There is not a lot there yet - I hope to create a mail environment that will have the Fido mail capabilities - so that you can interact with other BBS systems.

If you are interested in having your own page prefix on here, just let me know - and I’ll set you up.

If you would like to help me build this, I’d welcome your assistance and ideas.
