I will be on holiday from August 24th to September 14th, so while I am gone, please don't send too many multi-MB email messages :) Due to preparation for my holidays, I have unfortunately been unable to review SmallEd as I promised last month. Once I get back, things should get moving again though. We will pick up where we left off and continue to offer the best OS/2 developer resource on the web.

Our busy team of converters have now produced every INF issue missing, except 0503, which will be done soon. They have agreed to stay on for a while at least, so it looks like our INF fans will be happy once again.
If you have something to say, well, you know what to do...

See you next month,
