You're in luck. I found a screenshot in a directory with old files. See
attached. I don't think I ever made an icon for the program.

Not that I know of. I ran it on HP-UX in 1994. To support its applets
(plugins) it used the functions that HP-UX offered for dynamic loading
of code. Porting it to a modern Linux would probably take some effort.
The functions exist, but they have different names and different
arguments...

Were there newsgroups in Dutch? Would be wonderful to read Bert and Guido sharing ideas (if not Finnish or Austrian people as well). Going to search. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.41.10.227 (talk) 12:40, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
