That software is not anymore available, now that compressed code is almost (until someone finds a solution) useless.

Not for web upload, but to survive Usenet propagation. These messages predated the web. And the software tools to decode them are still available today, though hard to find; depending on the tool I was able to decode them either under Linux/Unix (I used Microsoft's WSL on Windows 10) or in DOSBox. So nothing became useless.
