Welcome to Spaldam's Rotisory Foundation Homepage.  If you'd like You can visit the real thing buy using your modem and a program such as HyperTerminal, QVT/Term, Quicklink II (Once shiped with most modems), or any ANSI or RIP compatible program.
What is the Rotisory Foundation?  Ever heard of a BBS?  It's sort of like a free, amateur online service.  It's not the internet, nor does it have tons of graphics, but it does have interactive, real-time games, files, and message bases (similar to News groups, and some of the message bases are connected to news groups).  Come join the fun........!!!!!!!

The Rotisory Foundation was run on OS/2 Warp


It was run on WWIV BBS software


The BBS was also powered by the PPP project

The Rotisory foundation no longer has a dedicated phone line. Due to maintenance problems with the old machine I was intending to leave in Kaysville while I move to Sandy, thinking I could manage the BBS remotely, I have move the BBS onto my windows machine here in Sandy only be be run once in a while. This move should not effect the networks except for TWIST which I've had problems connecting with when I call out to it. I will contact TWIST directly to see what can be done to solve this problem. I would like to apologize to all my users, but I'm not certain how I will be able to accomplish this except to try and convince the phone company to put a messages on the phone that the number has changed to TWIST's number as I think it's probably a local phone call for the majority of my users. I'm almost certain they won't go for it unless I can trick them into thinking I'm authorized to do so, and pay some extra fees.
Hopefully The Rotisory Foundation will open up to the public again some day, though I doubt that it will be in the form of a BBS. It's been fun, and I'm sad to see it come to this end. I will still remain active in some subs, but do plan to eventually phase out UTAHnet depending on how things work out with TWIST. Happy hunting's and may you all find peace in this
crazy world.

The Rotisory Foundation BBS is no longer active. This E-mail address will be closed shortly. Sorry for the late notice, but I've decided it's all or nothing, and since recent events have make it very difficult to have any at all (as far as the BBS goes) I have decided it's no longer worth keeping up. It's been fun, and I hope The Rotisory Foundation will reemerge some day, but I doubt it will be in the form of a BBS.
Thanks, and may you all find peace in this crazy world.
