A new version of the software to access the Alternative Electronic Information Network is now available for DOS:http://aeinetwork.com/signup.htmhttp://aeinetwork.com/
For those of you who haven't heard about it, the AEIN provides a free source of online forums, games, software downloads, weather forecasts, recipes and other content. It offers a graphical, interactive way to use the Internet on dial-up connections and older PCs (even 8086s).
It includes a small encyclopedia and a selection of e-books to download. It has remained online for over two years and now consists of about 650 pages, plus 150 downloads and 50 bitmap images. There is a direct messaging system that members can use to communicate.
The AEIN Access Software is compatible with EGA, VGA and TGA video cards/adapters. It requires an Internet-connected (modem or NIC) computer with a packet driver such as LSPPP. The software will fit (and run quickly) on a single 5.25" or 3.5" floppy disk.
Some AEIN pages of specific interest to DOS users: DOS, DOS-GAMES, DOS-MSGBOARD, SOFTWARE, EGA. The AEIN also supplies a great deal of information and downloads for DOS graphical user interfaces like GEM and Windows 3.x. Also see: WINDOWS-31, GEM, QUIKGEM, DESKMATE.
