Fixed bbskipnames, which got broken somewhere
3/21/00 - Started converting from using "postfile_database"
list of post files to simply using the directory
listing w/ opendir().
12/21/00 - Fixed bug where addbbuser and addbbcat was
not chown/chgrping the users and posts dirs.
PrintArticle now prints category name in all
caps (for historical reasons) Removed dangerous
system(rm) calls from delbbcat.

users and posts directories if they don't
exist. Implemented read/query by user id. Added

where date was not being displayed in
readall-subsequent. Added more comments to a
few other files. Removed system() calls to
mkdir and touch. Added help menus, which seem
to not have made it into the last release. :)
Fixed bug in find.pl where thread info was not
being separated from the actual article number.

body (can be turned off in bbconfig).
12/05/00 - Fixed bug in delete.pl allowing ppl to delete
anyone's posts. Fixed bugs in modify.cgi (was
totally broken, not sure when that happened).
