XLAXNODE/XLAXDIFF
Anyone know who/where to contact to get a key for XLAXNODE/XLAXDIFF?
XLAXDIFF isn't the issue, but XLAXNODE generates a random number to type in
each time it is run.

Any help? Thanks!

... Why be normal?

Okay I found a message from 2007 saying the author died some years ago. So,
is there a crack/keymaker anywhere floating around?

You may want to try TBBSNC

I don't know if Richard is running TBBS or not. It doesn't matter because
TBBSNC works just like XLAXNODE - it *is* XALXNODE to all intents and purposes,
but with additions to work with TBBS (which one doesn't have to use if one is
not running TBBS). However the major advantage is that it needs no
registration. It was issued free to TBBS users and, presumably, eSoft paid a
royalty to Scott. But since eSoft has washed its hands entirely of TBBS all the
TBBS software is appearing for download free of charge from several servers.

Best wishes, David

Usually old BBS stuff is archived but you're right. Seems hard to find.

One day I'll learn to do write keygens lol.

I can't even find any TBBS stuff. Only thing that pops up with TBBS is that
crappy Tribbs software. Sad
