Re: Looking for a way to 'BBS' in Windows 3.11

I doubt such a thing exists especially for MS-DOS systems. That's something that would be probably be easier to implement on the BBS side rather than the client side. I wonder if anyone has ever attempted to run a BBS in MS-DOS/PCEM or other DOS-emulated environment. Any thoughts on Kermit for DOS? …

Re: Looking for a way to 'BBS' in Windows 3.11

Has the ANSI spec changed that much so that we can't use DOS/Windows 3.1 terminals to connect to telnet ANSI BBSes? Different code pages, maybe? English DOS had used codepage CP437, which also is part of PC BIOS, CGA/Hercules graphics cards (ROM chips holding fonts) and EGA/VGA BIOSes, unless being …

I agree that I preferred ST games over PC …

Re: Windows 3.1 Must Have Software -

Well this thread made me wax nostalgic. All the other software recommendations are good but for me a must-have when I had Windows 3.1 was HP's Dashboard, a Program Manager replacement. https://i.postimg.cc/15nwZQdb/Screenshot-from-2024-04-22-12-08-40.png It was a start menu style launcher before it …

Re: Question about XP Pc

Actually Windows XP can still be activated without cracks or phone activation. https://www.xpforums.com/threads/windows-xp-activation-algorithm-cracked.934798/#post-3270414 Lots of shady sellers on Ebay so if you want to make sure your copy of XP is genuine you're better off buying a Dell/HP etc. PC …
