Alright.. its funny the topics that bring the lurkers out (like me)
 I too was online in 81 with my trusty old Vic20 and 300 baud modem ;) I
also remember going to a friends house and being able to dial in to the UCSC
systems and playing games (I think it was rogue) with other people. After
that I was hooked. I went from the Vic20 to the C64, ran a bbs on that, then
the Amiga and another bbs etc..
 The bbs documentary is fantastic! I highly recommend seeing it. It brought
back so many memorys of the 'good ole days'. I even started looking at the
slew of telnet bbs's around but quickly lost interest ;).
