We are running the Maximus bulletin board software.

Our system has three main sections.  You get to the sections by
making a selection from the main menu.

         MESSAGES     ... read/enter public/private messages
         FILES        ... get/receive software and other files
         CHANGE MENU  ... change your help-level etc

In the message section, you'll notice it's divided into several "areas".
You can think of a message area as a topic.

The file section is also divided into areas.  Think of the file section
as a big library of software grouped into several areas.

MAXIMUS provides GRAPHICS if your computer supports ANSI graphics.
(Apple II does NOT support ANSI graphics.)
  If you see a lot of garbage on screen, 
  Enter C for C)hange-User in the Main Menu
  Then  V for V)ideo,  T for TTY,  Q for Quit
  
HINT:  If you get lost in the system, try pressing "?".  The question 
       mark is your way of asking for help.  We should probably say "WHEN
       you get lost" because poking around in various corners of the system
       is half the fun.

The FILES Section

=======================================
INTERNET CALLERS NOTE:  Text files can by TYPED and captured.
Downloading files is only sometimes possible; uploading rarely works.
Try ZModem if your software has it; it seems to work best.
