Re: [seul-edu] BBS?
Some web CGI's, etc. on your local network might do the trick:
I've found a number of free, very useful BBS-type CGI's on
http://cgi.resourceindex.com; I think one I liked was Discus, and WWWBoard is
another good one that's in wide use. I've installed Discus a couple of
times; it's pretty easy.
Also, there are some excellent BBS or news-type programs that use PHP and
MySQL. Check out Squishdot, for example.
Also, check out the list of apps at our very own seul.org/edu.
