I loved playing the old destination mars game. But you can't access DOS via windows seven. It would be cool to convert the old DOS favorites to the windows platform. My brother and a friend of ours also miss the old shutting galery game as well. Thanks for this letter. -Original

That's some really nice news. I'm all for that kind of thing. I've quite successfully got a stable website up that will not be going down or anything, and I'd gladly offer to host the games there. I may be able to receive the attachments via an an email address that shouldn't block it as well.
