Pyffle BBS – Waffle for the New American Century
Pyffle was created as a tribute to the coolest BBS software ever in existence, Waffle.
Unfortunately the only version floating around nowadays is a binary-only copy of version 1.65 for DOS from 1993 or so (which I do run on B4BBS, http://sampsa.com/b4bbs, through DOSBOX, with UUCP and everything) as the Unix sources have gone missing – this prompted the creation of Pyffle, the Python re-implementation of Waffle for Unix.
You can test drive it by telnetting to hq.pyffle.com
I’ve also built a ready-to-run VMWare VM for running Pyffle without all the annoying hassle of setting up Postgres and stuff yourself.
See http://www.uuhec.net/pyffle-bbs/pyffle-turnkey-vmware-appliance/ for details on downloading and setting the VM up.
