Changes From Previous Version
-----------------------------

1) All PEG programs are now invoked from a single menu. Just type PEG at
the DOS prompt to access all PEG functions.

or full descriptions. The number of lines of description printed is
controlled on a folder by folder basis in the folder create/update screens.

utility.

minus up to 23 hours. For example, West Coast subscribers can shift

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
