Free Forum Software in google app engine.

I've been working on some simple forum software and it's almost ready to be released.

You can find a demo here:

The idea is that it attempts to run within the daily limits for app engine free accounts, so anybody can set one up without having to hire a server etc. And as long as your forum stays relatively quiet you won't have to pay a penny.

You can find quota details here:

But it makes more sense to think about it for this software in terms of pageviews and posts. And I don't have those figures yet.

This will be free software for non-commercial usage with a parallel track for commercial usage or paid support and feature requests.

Programming side is mostly done, just the design left to go.
