- What happens when you get 3 or 4 semi-drunk and bored people during Rag
- Week \'97, and a [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") system which it is rumoured
- crashes if more than 1024 posts are put on any one board? :)
- With Wibble\'s blessing (well, not blessing, but for once he didn\'t
- give out to us :) ), Spock, Ronan, and someone else, who I don\'t
- remember, started posting absolute crap to the babble board. (This is
- NOT to be condoned in the present day. Since the input of too many
- [Avatars](/Avatar "wikilink") to mention in the last couple of years,
- things have changed, and the maturity level seems to have dropped off a
- cliff.) At first, it started as a conversation, but then we realised it
- could be turned into a full scale Rag Week event.
- And it did. People came, people saw, people posted, people went. It was
- getting tiring after about 500 postings, but then Plop got involved.
- Trust him to write a script which automatically logs into the
- [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") and makes a few postings at a time. The 1000 mark
- was quickly upon us, and very soon well exceeded even our best
- expectations. Much to our dismay, we failed to crash the
- [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") system. I believe we departed for the bar, the
- rest is a blur.
- There was a bet between myself and Wibble as to whether the
- [BBS](/BBS "wikilink") would withstand the strain. I won the grand sum
- of 20p on that particular wager.
