Why Abyss?

Prior to the internet taking off, computer groups provided “bulletin board systems” that gave members access to forums and file downloads. A limitation was that only one user’s computer could access the bulletin board at a time.

Apple-Q’s bulletin board system was called Abyss. With the rise of the internet, the bulletin board was replaced by this Abyss members only area. This Abyss can expand to offer far more features than the original bulletin board system.

In future, we plan to add more features to Abyss. What would you like to see here?
