  1. What happens when you get 3 or 4 semi-drunk and bored people during Rag
  2. Week \'97, and a [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") system which it is rumoured
  3. crashes if more than 1024 posts are put on any one board? :)
  4. With Wibble\'s blessing (well, not blessing, but for once he didn\'t
  5. give out to us :) ), Spock, Ronan, and someone else, who I don\'t
  6. remember, started posting absolute crap to the babble board. (This is
  7. NOT to be condoned in the present day. Since the input of too many
  8. [Avatars](/Avatar "wikilink") to mention in the last couple of years,
  9. things have changed, and the maturity level seems to have dropped off a
  10. cliff.) At first, it started as a conversation, but then we realised it
  11. could be turned into a full scale Rag Week event.
  12. And it did. People came, people saw, people posted, people went. It was
  13. getting tiring after about 500 postings, but then Plop got involved.
  14. Trust him to write a script which automatically logs into the
  15. [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") and makes a few postings at a time. The 1000 mark
  16. was quickly upon us, and very soon well exceeded even our best
  17. expectations. Much to our dismay, we failed to crash the
  18. [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") system. I believe we departed for the bar, the
  19. rest is a blur.

  22. There was a bet between myself and Wibble as to whether the
  23. [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") would withstand the strain. I won the grand sum
  24. of 20p on that particular wager.
