[thelist] phpBB ?

I once installed phorum, from phorum.org which worked ok, but am going with
something much more lightweight at the moment, from
http://www.robplanet.com/cgi/robboard done in perl , it uses flat files,
instead of database, which are much more search engine friendly (I would
imagine) and don't slow the connection down like a database can sometimes.
It's also very simple, and easy to modify the output to use style-sheets
etc. (unlike Phorum)
