Copyrights, Terms and Conditions, and Other Information
I'll try and keep this short, sweet and to the point.
Articles on this web server are copyrighted
by myself (William R. Walsh) or their respective authors. Where
possible, this has been noted. This includes all web pages, images,
supporting files and other resources hosted by this server. Copyright,
at least before the movie and music industries did their level best to
pervert its meaning, means that ownership remains with the authors of
these files. The authors (myself and others) control the distribution
rights of these files as well. In most cases you have permission to
make unaltered copies of my web pages publicly available or to keep in
your private archives. You don't need to ask first.
Using the partial contents of pages (or their
supporting materials, including images) on this server requires that
you ask permission first!
If you're not sure, please ask.
I ask that you
respect my wishes if I say "no" to your proposed use of materials, even
if you're doing something that is otherwise permitted under copyright
law, such as making a parody. (In the US, permission from a copyright
holder is not required to produce a parody of their work. Certain other
exceptions also exist under the umbrella of fair use, but you should
consult qualified legal counsel to make sure your plans and projects
fit under that portion of copyright law. I'm not a lawyer and cannot
answer your questions in that regard.) I am NOT a sue-happy jerk. I'm a
pretty average person who would appreciate your cooperation with these
If you have a use that's not outlined or specifically permitted here, please contact me. Again, I'm pretty easygoing and we can probably work something out that is to both of our advantages.
Unless a specific page specifically
indicates otherwise, or you are copying something authored by someone
other than myself, you are permitted to make copies of any material on
this server, under the same terms by which they were provided to you.
In particular, that means you must offer the same level of access as
this server does to the materials that you copied should you choose to
make them public. You may not charge any sort of fee or exchange items
of any value for access to this material, beyond what is necessary to
cover the costs of reasonable duplicating or connection time/computing
resource expenses you incur. You may not display advertising of any
kind alongside material obtained from this site or server.
If I find that you are doing anything
prohibited by the statements above, I will attempt to contact you first
to resolve the matter. If that should fail, I will issue a takedown
request to you or your service provider.
Here are some examples of what is or is not permissable:
1. Mirroring a selection of web pages
from this server on your own system for public access without
advertisements or fees is permissable.
2. Mirroring a selection of web pages
from this server on your own system for public access with
advertisements of any sort is not allowed.
3. Referencing a page or material
available from this server (by way of a link or a copy) on a web page
or other medium of your own authorship where you run advertising is
permissable, as long as the advertisements do not appear on the
material originally offered on this server. An example of this might be
a Youtube video that you create and monetize that contains a mention
(but not a copy) of this web site or resources available on it.
4. If you incur an expense directly
related to connection time/data transfer expense or duplicating
materials (such as ink, paper and toner) in the course of providing
materials copied from this server or copied and adapted into your own
work, you may charge a reasonable fee to recover only the cost of connection time or materials used to produce physical copies.
For other situations, you are urged to consult with qualified legal counsel or ask me first.
The IBM PCCBBS files are licensed to
you by IBM for unlimited distribution to any rightful owner of an IBM
product who may require some or all of those files, so long as such
distribution is at no charge of any sort. You may distribute anything from the IBM PCCBBS as long as you do not charge a fee or exchange items of value for doing so.

Just like many others on the web, this server does
collect a standard set of logs indicating which pages were accessed and
what, if any, errors may have taken place. I view these logs personally
from time to time for various reasons. These logs are never made
available to other people. Amongst other things, your public IP address
and user agent information are collected in these logs.
It is possible that a court of law could require me to produce logs and other data about your visit to this server.
Terms of Service
Please do not mirror anything
from this system without first making your intentions known. This
server's connectivity resources are heavily limited and there may be a
much faster way to deliver a copy of the information you need. Please
contact me with any questions. Likewise, do not link to this server
from any site where visitors are likely to overwhelm this system and
The owner of this site provides its
services on an as-is, "best effort" basis. No guarantee is made that
any information or data presented on this site is suitable or safe for
any purpose. You use this site exclusively at your own risk, and agree to accept all responsibility for any results, good or bad.
Information presented here is offered in good faith, but without
warranty of any kind. To the maximum extent possible under law, this
site and its owner disclaim any and all liability or warranty of
fitness for a particular purpose as concerns any resource offered for

This site may discuss unofficial modifications or disassembly of
electronic devices. The manufacturers of such devices do not endorse or
approve of these procedures. Disassembling and modifiying electronics
can be dangerous and is NOT RECOMMENDED unless you understand exactly
what you are doing and are willing to bear all responsibility for the
results, good or bad. Modifying or disassembling electronics or other
devices will void any warranty or insurance coverage you have on a
given device. Think very carefully in the event you choose to proceed.
Please do not abuse this server.
Responsible disclosure of security issues is encouraged and will be
acted upon promptly. If there's a problem, I want to know it. Do not
disrupt the operation of this server to prove a point or for any other
reason. Vandalism, malicious behavior and other irresponsible forms of
behavior will also be taken very seriously--and information will be
supplied to law enforcement agencies.
If you plan to utilize materials from
this server, please take a copy and host it yourself instead of
"hotlinking". Failure to heed this warning may result in something
surprising replacing the image or other resource that you are embedding
in your own work.
