VERY nice!  It's pretty much how I remembered how it worked.  It  
provided a very "fast" performance over dialup back then since a  
lot of the graphics and menus were pre-loaded client side.

No annoying scrolling of the main menus or screens except for  
some of the text info within a frame.

I'm wondering if rip could be viable on a smartphone. Seems like  
messaging and basic bbs functions would be a good fit for  
devices like that.
