Free email account.
You will receive a free e-mail account from CIS Bulletin Board, which
will give you access to your e-mail from any computer connected to the
World Wide Web. It is also possible to retrieve your e-mail using Telnet
or an e-mail program such as Microsoft Outlook or Thunderbird. Support
for PDA's will be added soon.
Usenet, Fidonet and RIME.
By way of our NNTP-server you will get access to usenet newsgroups using
Telnet, the World Wide Web or a newsreader such as Outlook Express or
Agent. CIS BBS is also connected to Fidonet, a global hobby network similar
to Usenet on the Internet, which members of the BBS can use free of charge.
If you use it frequently, you can also apply to CIS BBS for a so-called
point connection, which will enable you to read and reply to messages
off-line. As from November 2007 the RIME (Relaynet International Message
Exchange) network is no longer available on CIS Bulletin Board, but you
can read the old messages on the website, telnet, qwk, NNTP or FTSC.
CIS BBS has many mulit-user games such as Roulette, Blackjack and Video
Poker. On the telnet side of the BBS you can play Wheel of Fortune or
the well- known LORD
(Legend of the Red Dragon) game.
Chat with other users.
CIS BBS has a chatbox which you can use to chat to other users. The chatbox
is accessable via telnet, the CIS
Navigator or by using our Java chat client.
There are more than 12000 files that you can dowload from our file areas.
