Maybe a variant of PHP which used dBase instead of MySQL? I know that dBase is not very appropriate for multiple simultaneous users, but it is very light. Even a Z80 machine with 16KB can handle it. On the other hand, I doubt even Devster would be crazy enough to try this!. ;D

screw php and mysql on a 14mhz 68k =D it already lags in running a speedy basic interpreter =P
also, there are boards that don't use myqsl, or any database program for forums. i made a board once that only used text files. when a page loads, it just spits that text file out, even faster than mysql. when a user wants to post a message, it just appends that post onto the end of the file - easy =). the only problem was searching.......
The C-128 was twice as fast (in non C-64 mode), had a newer VIC chip (supported more stuff), and had a CP/M (z-80 mode). That's about it.
Although, much of the new stuff was never really used. I think some business (word processing) allowed an 80 collumn mode using the VIC. There were a few C-128 BBS programs, but I'm not sure there was much difference between the C-64 and C-128 versions. I vaguely remember some C-128 paint program.
I can't remember any commercial games that supported the C-128 only. I think there were a few shareware types games that supported it, but nothing mind blowingly incredible. And, I don't recall any C-128 only demos from any groups.
Was there a special version of GEOS for the C-128? I think I looked at GEOS once or twice. I think it went something along of the lines of:
Hey, where's the crack intro? Wow, cool sh*t.....What would you use this for? Click!
