Now there's a real good one. Take a look at the Ultimate BBS (, which is written in PERL and is like 250k worth of scripts in size. The equivalent REBOL code should be like 50k or something. The key issue for doing a cgi based BBS is session management, authentication, authorization. Those issues have to be dealt with first in the design and implementation before moving on to any of the screens.

A BBS that you can get to from the REB! How cool is that? -jeff
