Seems like, anyways. I no longer even remember *why* I had it...
we were MSDOS OEM installers, and used to work with Chris Larson
(I think it was) at M$. I think it was for email or some such, or
maybe downloading somethingorother. I barely remember it, mostly
the name. Use involved dialing into a modem pool, some treacherous
login system, etc.

Anything that long ago seems like it lasted only 11 minutes. Rear
view mirror effect.
