I had come across it, although I got the impression it was (mostly?)
UUCP over IP rather than dialup. A lot better than nothing though.
Relatedly, I got a kick out of their Python Waffle clone. I was a
regular user on a Unix-based Waffle system and ran the DOS version as
one incarnation of my UUCP system. Maybe I can find the Unix version
source one of these days.
I recognized one of the names at the end as someone whose node I used to
peer with. Small world indeed...
