In short, the BBS software creates a basic bulletin board that can start taking users' calls almost immediately.
BBS software is designed to do most of the maintenance functions, including setting and monitoring user access requirements, purging old messages, updating file lists and bulletins, and deleting users who have not called the BBS within a specified period of time.
Although setting up a BBS costs little, both Vaughan and Harwin stress that starting a system should not be taken lightly.
Harwin recalls a man who bought loads of expensive software to create his BBS. "He had all this great stuff and no one was calling," says Harwin.
"Because the technology changes so fast, a BBS can make the latest information available to the customer immediately--something much more difficult to do with printed material," Ruddock says.
Diagrams are available on Seagate's BBS as well, giving customers a picture to work with rather than an over-the-phone word description.
With so many BBs
flying, suitable eye protection is mandatory because of the real possibility of having a hail of BBs
bouncing back upon striking a hard object.
In addition to providing a new way for citizens to interact with the department, the BBS
offers a unique way for the agency to provide information to its citizens.
Until those issues are addressed, this case will have a chilling effect all over the country, as BBSs
either censor themselves or cease operations in order to avoid prosecution.
We would strongly recommend buying several extra mags, because once you get your hands on this awesome BB-spitting replica of the Walther PPK/S, you'll be totally hooked -- and while you're at it, lay in a good supply of [CO.sub.2] cartridges and BBs
