What happens when two people try to access the same BBS? Concurrency problems will occour, unless ViCE running the BBS is placed under INETD superserver (=is loaded on demand at each connection) with kinda auto-boot system for the BBS program _and_ the filesystem part of the board is in the Linux box as an ext2fs directory or such. This couldn't be _so_ easy. Otherwise, a simple mechanism based on lock files could simply kick away other users (with a "busy" message, too!) while one is connected; and this is fairly easy... yo, RDO - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
