New Bulletin Board on LM

I installed software called phpBB — bulletin board software for online communities — on LitMUSE. The install and configuration were cake, but I need to read the documentation before I really begin using it. The software, like this blog, run with MySQL and PHP, and it seems like it has the potential to handle quite a bit of traffic.

I plan to have my New Media and my Professional Communication classes begin using it, just to test it out this semester. I know they'll love it. ;-) Also, anyone who might be interested in contributing to the forum is welcome to join.
