Re: I’m no Cryptographer…

`file` says the magic bits make it look like a COM file. Doesn't do anything in dosbox, though. Too lazy to do anything else.

Re: Did you ever...?

start /m self.bat
start /m self.bat
start /m self.bat
start /m /w self.bat


if I remember correctly. Used to freeze your average win98se box after about 64 spawns.
