It should be easy to write a Win 3.1 viewer. The current Win32 viewer is
multithreaded, which helps when it is connected to multiple servers at once,
so it would need to be cut down to a single-threaded version.
Tristan has a borrowed Win 3.1 machine at home and uses Java under IE4 to
dial into work; IE4 also gives you the dialup PPP which is normally missing
under 3.1. I think it's painfully slow, though...
I hope to put a list of suggested projects like this on the web server later
today, to see if anyone will volunteer to have a go. I don't have a
compiler that does 16-bit any more - Microsoft no longer support it.
