    hi,
    how would i make a raspberry pi automate posting to a bbs board? i don't want to make a whole bbs server, just have it post to the board. i've tried looking at the wiki's how-to, but i'm confused which programs i need to install to achieve this..

    If you install Synchronet, you'll get jsexec and the module postmsg.js which can be invoked with jsexec:

    You don't need to install anything but Synchronet and then you can use the postmsg module to automate the posting of messages to a Synchronet message base.
