I'm Jeff-Relf.Me, in Seattle, Mid 2017, born in Seattle, 1960. 

This file, X.HTM, is the help/settings file for "X.EXE", my "terminal/console",
newsReader, email_client, URL downloader/viewer, backup/diff utility, games, etc.
Screenshots ( 3840 x 2160, 236 columns, fixedWidthConsole fonts, Windows 10 ):

  Diff, X, Jeff-Relf.Me/SleepPat
  Chess, Super.Fast.Monopoly
  Reversi, Solitair, Mario

"OCR A", "MS Mincho", "Segoe UI Symbol", "DejaVu LGC Sans Mono" and "nSimSun"
are the (required) "Unicode Console" fonts.

"X.EXE" is in <X.ZIP>, along with the files it needs; to wit:
    [ These files must be in the same folder as X.EXE ]

    "X.HTM" ( this file ) is the "help/settings file".
    "Nyms.HTM" is the Usenet Scorefile.
    The "xGames" folder has .PNG files for the Monopoly game.
    "X.CPP" is the source code, Visual C++, x64, Visual Studio 2017.

To display an image, pass the name of the file ( on the command line ).
You may set <Registry Settings> for that; see:

  [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\JPG_File\shell\╳\command]
  @="C:\\YourFolder\\X.EXE \"%1\""

Usenet is the best way to communicate, I think,
because _every post remains, uncensored, for decades;
and you can filter/sort them six ways to hell and back.

  My posts to Usenet ( since Feb 2012 ).
