About Six Months ago,
I put out a simple message board called an excercise in futility, which I dubbed futility 1. Since then I have written two more sophisticated boards, but the people I've heard from seem more interested in a simpler board that they can incorparate into their web sites and use as a part of larger packages they may be working on. Futility 1 was designed for that. The board itself was taken from a much larger application. Problem with the old board was that it ran into trouble running on certain types of servers, and the one thing that bugged me as a programmer was the fact that it would not offer feedback. You know, things like "Your message has been posted." In this new revamped version of Futility 1, I have fixed all of those problems and made the whole thing template driven so it is easier to customize. A live running demo can be found at http://dangerworlds.com/board/messages.asp
Please note: For more features, please check out futility 3. I've noticed the Admin in that board is still a bit buggy, however the board itself is very stable and has many more features.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come
out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
