I've got a weird idea. Back in the early '90s there used to be game terminals specifically for logging onto a BBS and playing a specific game on that BBS. There used to be one for TradeWars although I never used it since it was for the PC.

Maybe we could write a content management system that runs client-side rather than server side. It would access the site through SFTP and STelnet protocols. We could use XPK compression on all posts for improved bandwidth usage. I'd not use SQL at all since it's not available widely on the Amiga except for SQLite and even then, it's got its detractors.

Does Amiga support STelnet and SFTP? I'd rather not use the nonsecure versions except for anonymous access due to the fact that passwords are transferred non-encrypted.
