    From Mro@VERT/BBSESINF to All on Wed Jul 15 11:26:09 2015
    anybody here with an established bbs [one that has been up for a while] that is running their bbs on a tablet?

    i'm thinking about switching over to all tablets this august.

    I did for 3 days just to see if I could. It worked fine it was on my Dell something or other with windows 8 and an atom processor.

    The only issue you might have (that I noticed) was heat. The tablet I
    don't think is designed for processing like that all the time, and it got
    very very warm.
