Friends of Rick E. Moose BBS.
At the time, there were a lot of BBSes around
called things such as "FORUM-80" and "BULLET-80", ergo the name. FoReM BBS
was the first truly RBBS-like BBS for the ATARI 8-bit. It was programmed
in BASIC and was somewhat crashy.

FoReM BBS derived from an early AMIS. When multiple message areas were
added the name was extended to FoReM 26M. Then, When OSS released BASIC
XL the program was rehacked and called FoReM XL... Bill Dorsey wrote most
of the Assembler routines (where is he now?).
