Minneapolis, MN, USA–March 2, 1998
Steve Wilmes Consulting, Inc. today announces the release of Big Board,
their Web based forum software. “People are looking for good forum
software. An active forum keeps a website fresh and keeps people coming
back. We looked at and tested the forum software out there and were very
dissatisfied with very little made to run on a Macintosh Web server. In
building Big Board we took the best of the feature sets we have seen and
combined them into our product. Using the power of a FileMaker Pro backend,
and Lasso 2.5, our goal was to build a great feature set and a smooth
interface while still keeping the speed up,” says Steve Wilmes, President
of Steve Wilmes Consulting, Inc.
