'LysKOM' is an online, text based, interactive discussion system: a mix between Mail, News, IRC and a BBS. The server and (some of) the client(s) can speak both Swedish, English and other languages. LysKOM is similar to netnews, but LysKOM is intended for local discussions (instead of worldwide). LysKOM is much faster than netnews but like in netnews the articles are saved so that you don't have to be logged in to receive the news. LysKOM is a client-server system. The server process maintains a data base of persons, conferences and articles. The clients connect to the server and let the users browse the database for unread articles. This project is the server software itself, but there is a list of the many clients to choose from on the home page.
