There was a program called 'Eagle' something or other. I just remember the name 'Eagle'
being in it. It was an FFA mailer thing. Is that right? FFA? Free For All I think we called

There was a program 'GoingPlatinum' that never really amount to much at all. It had
thousands and thousands of members. I was a forum moderator for them for awhile.
