"AOHell", and other AOL proggies...

Does anyone still make these kind of programs? I used to LOVE them. You could punt people offline, impersonate people in the chat rooms, get free AOL time (back when they used to charge per hour), file fake TOS complaints getting people banned, type in rainbow text, etc...

Hell, that was half the reason I kept my AOL account for so long because I used to get a kick out of them.

AOHell was the grandaddy of them all. But there were a bunch of others like Havok, Millenium, Fate-X, Prophecy...etc...

There was a commercial add-on called BPS Powertools, that had alot of the same features (minus the malicious stuff), but there wasn't much point in paying for a program when there were hundreds of free ones available.

My parents still have AOLHell, and it's hell alright, takes forever to start up (plus my parents still have dialup on their computer). My brothers and I have been trying to convince them to get a cable or DSL connection, since it's much faster, but so far, no luck, they seem to like the old crappy stuff they have now.
RIP, Prince. A legend has left us, and you will be forever missed. cry

Fauxie

I got done by AOL when I put my details down for a trial when I was in the UK in my student house, forgetting that I'd soon be in Thailand, and not receiving my mailed statement, and ended up paying for several months worth of free internet for my former housemates. My fault though. lol Now I use True internet in Thailand, but my 512 kbps is crap running Windows XP Media Centre Edition with only 128MB of RAM. doh!

"AOHell" was a little program that you could run on your computer to mess with the AOL software and service.
