Free to use for everyone… but paying subscribers to The Lunduke Journal (either on Lunduke.Substack.com or Lunduke.Locals.com) can get Infinite Access (tm) (meaning you can be online 24 hours a day). Just follow these steps:
Login to bbs.lunduke.com.
From the Main Menu choose option “E” (for Email).
Hit “K” to send “Feedback to SysOp”.
In that email let me know that you are a full subscriber to The Lunduke Journal, and let me know what your email address is that you use to subscribe.
The process of granting Infinite Access (tm) is manual, so it won’t be instant. But you should have full, 24 hour access within a few hours to a few days.
