I am not really surprised. The thing that surprises me is the level of support they are still offering.

I've got version 1.0.

Looks like it will make its way to the burn pile when I do some more house cleaning.... Oh well...

I've decided to heave out a lot of stuff I haven't used in 5+ years. Sadly, no one around here knows about OS/2, TRI-BBS, D'Bridge Front End, Barren Realms Elite, Night-Owl CD's etc..etc.. All my BBS stuff... hundreds of dollars.. up in smoke.. *sigh*

I used to run a bbs called shaolin, my friend ran watchtower. I remember the good ol days. z-modem, riptide, etc.

I was one of the first I knew of to have a 14.4 modem. I can't remember for the life of me what software I used, but if i hear it... i would know it.
