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.
