I recently took the time to do a project, which I have wanted to do since I was a child, in the 1980s and 1990s. I have setup a Bulletin Board System, or BBS for short. I have the BBS software setup, but at this point its not finished, I am still working on it.
About six months ago, I learned about the Jekyll Static Site Generator.
I have wanted to speed up my blogs for some time, and I thought a static site mamay be the way to accomplish that.
With the decision to try out a static website, there appeared to be several options:
- Wordpress plugin
- Static Site Generator
- Website scrapper
Recently, I began an exercise to learn how Linux works better. At the advice of my friends I took over one of my spare computers, and installed Arch Linux. My goal in installing Arch was to learn more about Linux.
My list of plugins that I recommend. I have divided them into two categories: Highly Recommended and Recommended. The highly recommended plugins can be used successfully by most WordPress based websites. The recommended plugins provide additional functionality which may be useful in in your site.
Many people who have used Bulletin Board Systems, have seen ANSI, ASCII, and RIP Art.
I recently revamped my website to feel more like an old school BBS. To set the tone, I needed an image that looked like it could have been made back then.
