I thought, I'd share - if anybody is interested, I have MysticBBS running in Docker. It's great if you want to try out Mystic and get up and running quickly. It's available for both the Pi and X86 - ping me if you want some details.
I plan on making other BBS's in docker (so that I can play) and I'lls share what I build if anybody is interested.

Explain a little more about docker, I'm new to this?

boot (almost any) PC with it, you have a working workspace (browser, word processor, etc) - you can make changes. Like a Live CD - while you might
change from computer to computer - the experience is the same.
Also like a live CD - when you power it off, everything is lost (because CD's are read only right?). So if you want to keep your data, you need to supply
an external storage medium (USB or hard drive). So if you take your Live CD
and your USB and put it in another PC, your experience is the same again.
Docker is like that. An application is built into an "image". You boot that image - it might do something and when that image is stopped and destroyed,
any data that was with it is lost.
However, if you boot your "image" and give it a persistent storage device
(say from the host), you can then take that image (and th
