Full-featured bulletin-board system

    Carina II is an expandable, full-featured, modifiable bulletin-board system (BBS) for the XE/XL computer. Carina II uses Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to allow users to post messages, receive electronic mail, upload/download files and even play interactive games.
    The system was written in Atari BASIC; so it is easily modified by BBS operators with a little programming experience. Though Carina II was written in BASIC, its operations are of the machine-language level. The system supports XMODEM file transfers and even the new YMODEM transfer protocol.
    Networking will soon be implemented for BBS operators with more than one computer. Carina Software will offer the networking software at no additional charge. Carina II requires SpartaDOS 2.3 or greater and a 500K storage device.
    Carina II is available now for only $65.00 (including shipping and handling). A multiuser online game, Robowar II, is available for Carina II. This is a five-module game that costs only $15 additionally when ordering the Carina II system.
