We're quite deliberate about not chasing the "enterprise" market. That's a space that has its own needs, and the huge players like Microsoft are so focused on it that they've actually paid quite little attention to the needs of smaller installations, where someone would like to be able to just set something up and have it work.

What does a "small" Exchange installation look like these days? Trick question!
There is no such thing! You need a full-blown Active Directory environment before you can even begin to consider the installation. And of course they now prefer you to install separate front end and back end servers. Combine that with the hyper-piggish memory and disk requirements, and you're looking at a significant investment in computing resources.

It may be that they now expect smaller organizations to outsource their email and groupware needs, but there are still a lot of folks out there who will continue to be uncomfortable parking all of their internal communication and collaboration "in the cloud."

Zimbra is a pig as well. It's not as much of a pig as Exchange but its clumsily lashed together architecture is responsible for it consuming several times as much disk and memory as it ought to.

OK, I see where Citadel fills a niche left open by the enterprise and cloud solutions. What then are the other players in the Citadel niche and how does Citadel compare with them? I am not necessarily asking for a reply right here and now, but that would make for very interesting reading/viewing.

Just recently stumbled across Citadel and I've gotta say it's really awesome. Definitely, a lot easier to setup than postfix, courier-imap, and horde. Also the performance is amazing, thanks to being written in C. However, I didn't see much going in the way of themes and I noticed that the Blue Citadel theme is broken with the latest Citadel. Thus, I decided to create my own. I give you the Blue Castle theme for Citadel. I trimmed some things back, made text smaller, and did some other stuff. Also borrowed the icons from the Blue Citadel theme. I think it's looking pretty good so far, let me know what you think.

Hy Ben,

sorry for the late reply; i've added your link to

http://www.citadel.org/doku.php?id=installation:themes

one tiny note:

please follow the guidelines on http://www.citadel.org/doku.php?id=documentation:citadel_logo

You can use the vector version to produce a bitmap which best matches your theme; please don't paint your own.

Since Google Code is steadily deprecating all the download methods from their repositories, I moved the Baby Citadel PHP package to git on bitbucket.org.

Could one of you gentlemen please update http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/installation:source?&#third-partycontributions

Today is a birthday. An Anniversary.

On December 15, 1983 NetK2NE and the Jersey Devil BBS were "born."

Jersey Devil BBS began its life anchored to a (believe it or not) 300 baud single-line dial up modem. The BBS ran on a Commodore 64 machine using the CommLine-64 software which I wrote.

About a year later it had morphed into a Citadel clone-ish thing that I called Citadel-64, which then migrated to the Commodore-128 with (gasp!) a 20 meg hard drive. Yes, there were hard drives available for the '128, and we started calling the software "Citadel-128."

The migration to IBM PC clone hardware was done in 1987, and Citadel:K2NE was born.

Oh, NetK2NE. Yes.

NetK2NE started as a very small software company (K2NE Software) created to market the Commodore 64 BBS software along with a few other items for which we were licensed.

That, of course, grew by the proverbial leaps and bounds once the Public Internet became available in the early 1990s, and the dial-up BBS world rapidly evolved into the various privately-owned internet service providers (ISPs) that you still see today.

Some of those stayed small; some grew. We grew. Not as big as some others. But grew.

And then - in 2001 - I retired from all of that (and from teaching Physics) and moved from New Jersey to California.

NetK2NE. Now thirty years old. Imagine that!!

Who'da thunk that (!!) back in December of 1983 on that snowy night when Jersey Devil BBS "went live"!?!?!

Thanks certainly go out to all that made it possible. From Jim Rose, Rich Kolbush, Bob Davenport, Alan Bowen, Jason Costomiris, Avi Freedman, and Mike Burger to countless others that will undoubtedly be mad when they read this and don't see their names.

Thanks to the "Big Guy Upstairs" Who certainly must have been watching over all this stuff.

Thanks to our customers, clients and friends for their encouragement, and yes - for their business.

And thanks to you, whoever may be reading this, for sharing this tiny bit of history and pride.

Without every one of you, in some way or another, none of it could have happened.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY !!!

"Nostalgia" is sitting here, thinking about The Old Days, and coming to the conclusion that the only reason BBS writers put a 'Pause after each Screen' option was the advent of the 2400bps dialup modem.

Up to that point you could sit back, watch the text scroll onto your screen at comfortable reading speed (up to 1200 baud) and just enjoy the experience.

Then it got faster. And even faster. And still faster.
And then came ISDN. Not fast enough, so let's do DSL or (shudder!) Internet By Cable TV Company.

Hence the 'Pause after each Screen' option.

The old days were better.

You could just connect via slip and minimodem to another computer within earshot of your own and limit the speed and then connect with the text client if you wanted the real feel.

Vince - I could read at 2400 baud.. It's when I went faster that I needed that handy pause button.

Lots of people - especially those in the "computer world" - can read at 2400 baud.

Personally, the "pause after each screen" was the option that I favored - even at the slower baudrates. That allowed you to re-read something that really interested you and that you perhaps were going to justify with a response or a comment. It was for that "let me make sure I really got that!" moment.
