The Newsroom is an addon module for the Falken BBS Software for Linux. The Newsroom allows the Sysop to post messages in a file called, newsroom.dat which is a standard ASCII type of file, and can easily be modified by the Sysop, or by anyone who has correct permissions set up. The messages that are posted by the Sysop remain to be displayed to everyone, until the Sysop elects to remove the message, or the messages from the datafile. With, or without any messages, a brief display of the header will appear when The Newsroom finishes up, and exits to the BBS.
PhunkyBB is a Web-based forum system that is distinguished by its use of XSL as its template language. By using XSL, PhunkyBB is able to run on several different platforms, not only in terms of operating system, but also programming language. At this time, it has only been tested and used on PHP, but some test runs have been done on Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby.
dd_chat (formerly known as dd_ntalk-door) is a chat system derived from ntalk to be used with the DayDream BBS. The dd_chat client is a "door" program for the DayDream BBS that provides an easy-to-use chat client for the dd_chat server. Unlike the original ntalk client / server system, dd_chat implements several features from DayDream's libdd as well as an extended command set. It integrates seamlessly into DayDream. It features private conversation, checking for remaining BBS online time, chat idle timeouts (five minutes, except when in "away" mode), support for an ANSI logo and ANSI help screens from DayDream's "display" directory, and updating user status in DayDream.
