> Like making sure HIMEMX runs on 386s? (Still waiting on that patch.) :-P

The problem is: I modified this himem thing mainly for myself, I don't regard myself as "maintainer". So, since I don't have a working 386 computer anymore - and probably also won't buy one on Ebay anytime soon -, it might take a while until a patch is released.

But returning to your list: dosfsck and ctmouse are probably also "quality" tools, but I somehow doubt that one can call them "Eric's tool" just because he has added a line or two to the sources.

Yes, if used intelligently then communication has advantages...
