I got a really nostalgic email today from my past — the old Durand Communications days (www.durand.com/durand) from 1993-1998.
Tonight, a former MindWire user wrote:
“I remember initially starting off with remote access bulletin boards and then having a heart attack when I saw MindWire hit the market. It was unique then and there’s still nothing like it since. I loved it then and I still love it now.. the only problem is that it’s absolutely nowhere on the internet. I have to admit that ever since I shut down, i’ve had the itch to get it back up and running again. Enough to drive a guy up the wall. Kudos on your success by the way, seems like you’ve made it for yourself quite well. It’s good to see someone with such an excellent concept of good software move around and lead several successful projects to fruition. I’m certainly considering putting something back online.. just need the software in order to do it.. (unfortunately, floppies don’t fare well over the years if you know what i mean..)”
So I pulled one of two remaining boxes of the old software program off the back of my office door and opened it up just for kicks. If you’re interested, you can get them below.
