Download nostalgia

Having a bit of a clearout yesterday, I was sifting through a pile of pages long ago torn from once-current computing magazines to see if there was anything worth keeping among the tips for forgotten software packages. Then I saw this, from December 1999.

By the time you read this, Netscape Communicator 4.61 for OS/2 Warp should be available for download. ... We hope to be able to place it on the cover CD in due course, but you might want to go ahead and download it anyway if you can face the 7 MB-odd download.

Oh, the onerousness that was multiple-megabyte downloads.

Oh, OS/2 Warp. I still have an installation disc somewhere...
