Now there's a real good one. Take a look at the Ultimate
BBS (http://infopop.com), 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?
