Misc info

History

I made EasyComm because about a year ago we bought a new computer. We decided to keep the old one and connect them together via a network. As I tired of using clumsy NETSEND messages, I decided to make communicating a little easier. After half year of intensive testing, I finally released EasyComm 1.0!
