it has been released under Creative Commons so it is free and legal to download. The internet versions do not have the extra features, though.

it's surprisingly engrossing, at least in my nerdy opinion. :)

Damn, I'm old. I was a web geek before there was a web, and now I have to submit a help desk ticket so the IT team will let me install a program. *sigh*

I played a whole lot of games of TradeWars on a whole lot of BBS's. And for the record, C-64, all the way, baby.

the part about FidoNet (I think) said that one of the reasons it is still hanging on is that in countries where the internet is censored, they can dial into BBSes and circumvent that restriction.
