Across the left side of the main system page are the Wildcat! client
icons. These same icons are located at the top of your Wildcat!
Navigator Connection Manager for easy access when you are not looking at
the main system page. The clients allow you to perform very specific activity
while connected to the system:
- Message Conference Client
Wildcat!'s message conferences are similar to forums found on the larger
online services like CompuServe. Each conference can have its own message base,
files, bulletins, questionnaires, display screens and menus.
- File Management Client
You can make documents, spreadsheets, databases and other files available
through Wildcat's file management system. Searching and retrieving are as easy
as pointing and clicking on an icon.
- Teleconference/Chat Client
Wildcat!'s real-time teleconferences provide an exciting way for your
members to interact one-on-one or in groups. Moderated chats give your members
an organized forum for group discussions or question and answer sessions.
- Who's Online Client
The Who Client gives you a listing of all individuals connected in
real-time, and also lets you invite others to Chat or send them an Instant
Message. Just right-click on a name for access to these features
- Personal Properties Client
An individual presentation of your personal information as stored on the
system. The personal Properties Client lets you view your statistics and
set some options such as whether you are available for Chat and Instant
- World Wide Web Interface
The key to Wildcat!'s ease of navigation is its use of hypertext markup
language( HTML). This is the same language used to create thousands of pages on
the World Wide Web. Future versions of Wildcat! will include support for
full-motion video and even Virtual Reality. By using the Wildcat! Navigator,
your members will even be able to navigate the World Wide Web through
your Wildcat! system.
