A shareware bbs system that supports UUCP mail and news, POP/SMTP, chatting, and telnet, among other things. Version 1.3 addresses the following issues:
"I used to use Pancake to run a middle school computer Bulletin Board (BBS) that gave students access to Internet E-mail, newsgroups, chat, and even telnet out. Before our school was wired, the BBS would dial up to exchange mail and news over a phone line.
"Pancake is now rather dated, given the web today. Still, it allows users to connect over AppleTalk, TCP/IP, and a phone line and runs on virtually any Macintosh (I used to run it on an LC II). I have a demo running so come visit the Public Education BBS: telnet://220.127.116.11 (login as guest/guest)."

"I have been looking for a good program for the Mac to start a nice chat room. Well Pancake does that and a whole bunch more!! Pancake is a GREAT program!! The multichat area is a little bare, but with ResEdit and a few hours it will be a great chat area. This program is the best Macintosh chat/bbs server software I have ever found. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a stable Macintosh BBS server."
Can't find what you're looking for? Try a search:
Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.
Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
