I think this is bit unfair, I mean why shouldn't Geoff only care about what is on the whole the "current" area. He is after-all only one person and there is a limit to what we can all do. Indeed I have only recently got into Freedos myself as I wanted to make use of it for projects however I'm here as I'm keen to also feed back into FreeDOS/other projects. I'm learning a lot from these forums about FreeDOS/other things simply because I was so out of touch with what has happened (as I had moved onto many other things), now it's in my interest hence I'm dusting off stuff. That's just me but I can fully understand why Geoff needs to limit the areas that he is working with.

Thanks Geoff, being aware of your work at a high level I hadn't even realized you were still being as kind as to go that far back. It is appreciated.

Likewise I'm in full support of Geoff here - I have never cared much for DR-DOS in days of old. That said I did see it and use it under Netware.

Fair enough. Still really good to see you on here Geoff. Thanks for coming.
