I am working on a small web application that needs to have a "bulletin board" function similar to the the Big Moose Saloon. Being sane people, we would prefer to either use open source software or pay a small fee for the software (this is a really low low budget operation).
am I correct in assuming the saloon uses cgi/perl? I had hoped to use Java, but not a big deal... Is it based on some other product?
thanks much

What we are using is perl and from infopop.com. The price isn't too bad. They have a java version, but the price for that is pretty spendy.
There is a new java product coming out that is open source. It is a lot like this software. People have talked about it here, but I can't remember what it was called.
