ircII & others found on an ancient mirror!

I was trying to hunt down a mirror for the ftp server that back in the day (92-94ish by the UseNet posts) was the central repository of software for this version of UNIX. I found this directory that looks like old aminet and has some software, I'm still going through the formats to see what works and what doesn't.

You can't trust the extensions on these files, for ex ircII.gz turns out to be the binary program itself, not an archive. I'm still trying to uncompress those files that do seem to be compressed in some way. ircII works, will connect to an IRC server if given the IP of it.

This brings me to another problem in the next thread.
