[Ohrrpgce] Old OHR source zips

I had those files uploaded chmod 600 instead of 644

I have fixed them, and normalized their names


Looking on those is a blast to the past. In the 2001 zip, I can see a batch
file called zz_486.bat
It calls a program called "givefile"

If I remember correctly, My computer, and my cousin Brian's computer were
sitting side-by-side connected by a single ethernet cable with no

His was a Pentium running Windows 95, and mine was a 486 running DOS, and
Windows 3.1

Our attempts to get Windows networking file sharing to work repeatedly
ended in frustration, but we knew that IPX networking was working fine
because we could play multiplayer DOOM and Hexen, so Brian dug into some
IPX documentation, and wrote givefile.exe and getfile.exe (I think they
were in asm, not quickbasic, but I am not sure) They would do a crude file

So that zz_486.bat was my first network backup script for the ohrrpgce.
