Something really old that I found

It's an archive of a post I put on a newsgroup from 1994 (link - search for 'Darrick Rochili' on the page). Man, I remember those days when internet connection was scarce, and I was scouring BBS' for files to download, connected via Telix and MS-DOS. I remember buying my very first modem (forgot the brand), a 14.4 K for $400 Australian.

Then I went to a summer class at the local university, Univ of Wollongong, and we were all given email and internet access. No browsers back then, only dos terminal connections. The only fun was IRC (text based), searching for warez sites and trying to crack unix password files :)

Then came the time when I was introduced to the first ever Netscape browser, damn it was a rush. Trying to get it to work was hours of frustration with SLIP, Trumpet Winsock and damn old Windows 3.1.

Oh boy, I suddenly feel quite old :)

Subject: Having more than one session using SLIP

Hello, could anyone help me with this. I want to get more than
one session when I'm logged in the internet, which uses UNIX.
I'm using msdos and telix. Do I have to get a software for it ?
If anyone knows how to do this, please reply and let me know.
Thanks
