If you are referring to teledisk, it is worth noting
that they no
longer offer a single-user non-commercial license; they stopped
offerring it as shareware in 1991, and is now solely a commercial
product with a licensing fee of $150. The shareware version that
can still be found out there is now "warez" - illegal, copyable
only by pimply-faced HaKkErZ with bad breath and no morals. :-/
Hey, I don't have pimples <g>
I exchanged e-mail with them recently about this, and
were polite, they refused to consider licensing it for less than
their stated price.
Really nice since they got their start by everyone else paying their way for
distribution, marketing and testing back in the BBS days. The makers of Telix
communications are just as bad, if they're even still around, just as the
makers of ProComm (DataStorm?) are to this day.
Anybody know of any reasonable alternatives, for those
of us that
are hampered by rules against theft? I suppose I'll eventually
write my own, but my schedule looks pretty well jammed clear into
the next millenium.
My guess is that you don't use Windows and that you don't want one of the
older shareware Teledisks?
