The Charles Oropallo Network

The Charles Oropallo network is a place where we can see just what Charles Oropallo materials are scattered across the Internet.

Which Charles Oropallo is this?

There are many individuals on the planet named Charles Oropallo. That came as quite a surprise to this Charles Oropallo! Growing up, Charles was never able to find another Charles Oropallo anywhere.

It’s the Charles Oropallo from Peterborough, New Hampshire who will be up-keeping this site. That Charles Oropallo is the same Charles who is founded CharlesWorks, the web development company also located in Peterborough, NH.

Hopefully, there will be something useful here.

Some of the stuff found on the web is amazing just based on the sheer uselessness of it. If you’ve studied people over time, as Charles Oropallo has, this really starts to make sense.

More about this Charles Oropallo

In November 1977, this particular Charles Oropallo authored and implemented a Bulletin Board System (BBS). Charles called it called Access-80. The BBS operated on a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I, Level II microcomputer. There were only a limited number of such systems online devoted to public use on the entire planet at that time. Access-80 provided personal messaging for local computer enthusiasts. It originally went online from Charles’s residence on Ridge Road in East Greenbush, NY.

A little more about Access-80

Access-80 was a hobbyist endeavor that Charles Oropallo did from November 1977 while running Oropallo Construction, Inc. full time. A 300 baud modem and home brewed auto answering device connected it to dial-up over phone lines. Relative speed and technological changes have been immense – today’s dial-up (if you can even find it at all) at its fastest speed is 53,000 bits per second compared to 300 then!

Access-80 was also concurrently placed online in Schenectady, NY while operating in East Greenbush, NY. It was operated in Schenectady by a friend of Charles’s, Brian, who worked at Ellis Hospital.

In 1982, Charles Oropallo moved from the Albany, NY area to April Drive in Nashua, NH, and Access-80 moved as well. A photo of Charles’s original Nashua Access-80 setup is shown at

Before long, Access-80 was run by Charles’s friend Carl concurrently online in Londonderry NH as well as Nashua. Access-80 remained online until 1987.
