for DOS and WINDOWS (3.1 & higher)

Last Update on Nov.-26-2003

Originally I got the idea for making these utilities while I was working on my Homepages.
Meanwhile I have collected some hardware ;-} and with my old notebook I'm using DOS software like I did in old days.

The Copyright of these programs is completely with me. All rights reserved!
However feel free to use, copy, and distribute them as long as you do not sell or alter them!
