Re: Diablo 2 (+ LOD if you want) MULTIPLAYER possible Anyone Interested

FOR FOSS: Dune 2 The maker (current stable) is under 6mb, Zod engine is about 65mb, BosWar is about 74mb.... but at a compaired "vs" 105mb, NONE, imho, offer Starcraft Broodwar's level of "feel" & "accessibility". * love note to Dune 2 The maker (current stable). As an RTS, at 6mb its online/skirmis...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

Some of it is detailed in my link above but the program interfaces aren't great, software quality is low (even Softpedia talked about buggy software), and tendency to rename and fragment is frankly legendary. There are at least a dozen of what seems to be slight changes and renaming on the same rep...

Re: Diablo 1 & 2/LOD & Starcraft Broodwar classic (FOSS filed) PORTABLE

I have these files, which I have confirmed are " no longer for sale or are now opensource/public domain " Just because something isn't for sale doesn't mean it falls outside copyright.

I want to release community "collections" (I have Dev's okays) of portable tools

Hi, I'm Jeff, aka aazard! I play with compression, packaging and testing apps (I can code, but at a "hello world" or "i edited your code in 3 lines" type skill level). But I've been a system admin/component tech for 20+ years (i'm 40), and I've played with "foss" stuff "forever"...so I know "how to ...

Re: WizFile

Re: xplorer2 Lite

Ive been testing "portable file managers", xplorer2 Lite is very nice, maybe equal to Q-Dir which is saying something in high praise..., its very well made.
