Doc’s 52FLC Archives | Keeping Up With Tech

Welcome to Doc’s 52FLC Archives. My name is Ed Koon, AKA Doc and FidoSysop. I am a former used car dealer and ASE-certified mechanic. As a hobby, I was one of the first computer bulletin board system operators (SysOp) to connect a BBS to the internet, creating a new gateway for so many Fidonet members to get BBS access in 1998 when many dial-up BBSs threw the big switch off. It was online for 32 years, running on an old Dell Optiplex under Windows 7. Wildcat V5 with the Internet Connect Pack. It would run for months without a reboot. The most advanced BBS software ever developed. I have backups and might put it back up.

I’ve since turned net hobbyist webmaster. I hang out online and keep up with tech. This website is a hobby and does not attempt to generate revenue. When the internet became public, I started studying its benefits. And here I am, still learning! 🇺🇸

I’ve got many stories to tell, other than politics, but it’s an election year, and our homeland heeds every patriot’s help to save her! 🇺🇸 One I recently published is about James Earl ‘Doc’ Webb, who founded Webb’s City and made St Petersburg, FL, world-famous in the 1950s. And the Green Benches, the Million Dollar Pier, and more. Below is a neat video about Doc Webb and how he built his empire so kong ago!

I wished I had an intelligent businessman like Donald Trump to hang out with when I was younger. The man built an excellent representation and wants a subcontracted job done according to the material and labor specifications.. If a subcontractor cuts corners to pocket the extra cash, that person might not get paid! It’s Business, plain and simple, and Mr. Trump expects the job to be done to his specifications. It reminds me of that Towering Inferno movie. That’s what cutting corners in that business can lead to! 😥
