In the 80s and 90s Chicago had
several DDials, but after time, they disappeared for various reasons. In
1998 the last two DDials, God's Country and Point Zer0, were taken down. As the
chat community evolved, a few newer systems were developed
here in Chicago, none ever gained the popularity of DDial. Most Recently, with
the popularity of the Internet, DDials and DDialers have
moved into a larger world.
As a DDialer myself, I realized that our community sometimes looses track of its
members, and so I star ted the Chicago DDialer User List.
I've also included some of the offical DDial documentation
to aide DDialers, new and old to understand the cryptic command set of DDial.
This section use to contain information about all of the D-Dials still running
in the Chicago-land area. I suspose in its own way it still does.
