Welcome to the official Bluepoint Institute alumni bulletin board and Bluepoint Linux Users Elite (BLUE) forum on the Internet.

We have just shifted to a new version of MAJ - bliki/bb/ml2bb modifications will be pushed live one at a time until we reach a comfortable level of efficiency.

Check back often for code and package repositories, articles, featured Bluepointers, special interest groups, and bi-directional mailing list to bulletin board integration.

Why MAJ?

We get this a lot. Why not use phpBB, WordPress, SMF, vBulletin, Plone, Drupal, Joomla!, Mambo, Movable Type, or some other mainstream publishing platform for BETA? Here's why:

MAJ is lightweight. It's relatively fast, even on virtual machines or old hardware.

MAJ is simple. An 11-year old helped develop it.

MAJ is ours. We know every line of code so we can make modifications, fix security issues, and extend it as quickly and as often as we want to.

MAJ has been secure and efficient so far. It has been powering Bluepoint Foundation for years!

MAJ is my other nickname.
