The only reason I ran it was we had it at work, and it was a "better DOS
than DOS" as they advertised. I was a Novell admin and needed to have lots
of DOS windows open to run the admin tools - as well as being able to load
OS/2-level system drivers and have more memory inside of DOS.

What was wild was running DOS networking in a DOS VDM, using a virtual DOS
6.22 disk image with DOS network drivers. I'd run LANtastic in that window
and use it to connect with the BBS machine.

... All those updates, and still imperfect!

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
