This is the first post on this blog. Whatís it to you, pal?February 24, 2007
Look, this wasnít my idea. If it were all up to me, weíd get rid of all this high-tech computer garbage and everybody would go back to using MS-DOS 2.11.

Hey Dave! Glad to see youíre still kicking. Iím still a Shipbase III user. It must be the longest-surviving non government DOS-based software still in use. How is the writing going? Itís a tough way to make a living.

Iíd agree with you if youíd said DOS 3.2; I got used to some of the extra features you could use in .BAT files.
If youíre clever, youíll use occasional blog postings as a substitute for not updating the site as a whole.
My friends and I are still playing RCR, using our own races and ship designs.
Hi guys, glad to hear there are still some SB3 and RCR players out there. We still use a lot of DOS-based testing software at my ďrealĒ job, but I think youíre right, there arenít many non-industrial, non-government DOS programs still being sold out there. Last I looked SB3 was still being sold, although I heard the sticker price went up.
The writing is going well, but itís tough getting back into it after slacking off for the past year. Iím happy with the progress though.
Truthfully, I still have some old pre-Win95 PCís in the house. Most run MS-DOS 6.22, except for the ancient Tandy 286 that doesnít seem to want to run anything newer than DOS 5.0.
