> -Resized output of "help credits" to fit screen size
> -Added note at bottom of credits confirming this is the DSLinux version and
> not some freaky mutant binary gone sentient, capable of running on any and
> every computer platform.
> -Added automatic saving and loading of data at boot and exit, using file
> /var/tt++. This way, extra scripts only have to be loaded once!
> (Unfortunately, you are then stuck with them). Could be much more flexible,

> loaded automatically) and saving tabs from sessions, but, alas, it is not.
> -Using custom chat.c which does not require pThreads. Thanks to Scandum (at

> The reason for that auto saving and loading is not just that it's a great
