The documentation for this software make it out as a very promising piece of work for a premiere version. This is a Commodore 128 program with ANSI support, on-line BASIC, and a fairly configurable op-code based system (not quite as flexible as Zelch 128's, but quite good).
The software is loaded down with features also-- from two logs, to numerous extras in the user records, to a heafty selection of on-line sysop options, and a nice selection of user self-editing tools.
However, this is also the most finiky piece of shareware I have ever seen. Despite my wrangling, and coaxing, I could barely keep a system up before I would select some option that would send my drives spinning into oblivion, leaving only a splat file behind. Also, since I was playing with an unregistered shareware version, I did not get to fully review the program-- trusting the docs for some unseen details. Anyways, Intelligentsia is an extremely promising BBS program, and to fascilitate it's future, I have provided a link to the distribution files on the previous for you to download. They come in 6 self-dissolving archives which were then zipped together.
