The basic DMBBS loader program.
DMBBS would fall under the catagory of the stock and standard Commodore 64 BBS program. Few if any features are notably lacking, and many of the later advances brought to the BBS scene by CMBBS, Color 64, and C-Net were incorporated into a colorful system.
A colorful and informative waiting for call system.
