Projects / bbs100


bbs100 is a BBS in the style of DOC and/or YAWC. DOC is a style that remotely resembles Citadel. What's special about bbs100, is that it's a single process daemon that handles all connections at once, while consuming very low cpu resources ( < 1%). It can handle over a thousand simultaneous users. It is highly customizable, is easy to setup, and has many configurable features. bbs100 is almost a must-have for people that want to run a DOC-style BBS.

            I wouldn't want to run my bbs (The Matrix) on anything else but bbs100. We started out with it just over a year and a week ago and have been running it ever since.We just love it.It's very customisable, easy to use, free, constant support, frequent updates (bug fizes and/or new additions). Almost no load while running it.If this isn't the best bbs host daemon out there, then Waterworld was a very good movie.*(8-)=

            A very nice DOC/YAWC style BBS
            bbs100 is looking good. With a very easy, dumb proof, installation and a robust output, bbs100 is a BBS to keep an eye on.
