As I surf the net, I come across various things that I wish someone had told me about.
In theory, one day it will all be available in the polished sections of my
website. In the meantime, if you're willing to 'dig' through some disorganized
material, you may be rewarded with 'gems'!
In some cases, the text is snipped from other sources. Therefore, among other
things, the personal pronoun may not refer to the editor of this page. If, on the
other hand something is identified as coming from 'TKB', he IS the pages's editor!
Ad from page's editor: Yes.. I do enjoy compiling these things for you...
hope they are helpful. However.. this doesn't pay my bills!!! If you
find this stuff useful, (and you run an MS-DOS or Windows PC) please visit my freeware and shareware page,
download something, and circulate it for me? Links on your page to
this page would also be appreciated!
Why does this site cause a script to run? I have my web traffic monitored for me by eXTReMe tracker. They offer a free tracker. If you want to try it, check out eXTReMe's site
Some other activity may result from my "Link Exchange" banner ad. I signed up for this a long time ago, and haven't got around to removing it. Other than that, what you get is what you see! I don't inflict cookies on you, except via my Link Exchange links.
Sick of Bill Gates running everything? Want DR-DOS, with personal netware? (Like MS-DOS) Want other NON-MS stuff, reasonable prices, as shareware? Go to:
A simple program called dirnotes allows you to easily do this
All you have to do is place the program in the path or directory
and you can print out the data file it creates.
It's a nifty program

Big list of shareware sites, and a list of freeware ONLY sites:
I have converted several shareware programs to freeware. They do many useful
things, such as:
1) edit, cut, paste files in binary mode up to 2 gig in size on network
2) use Novell fileserver calls for copying
3) view printed reports in 132 column VGA mode, page by page
4) neat utilities for building complex batch files from dir scans and
byte string search
5) bookmark editor to merge Netscape and Explorer
6) replacement for XCOPY and NCOPY with many options such as file exclude,
ERRORLEVEL exit, and report generation for completed backup
I plan on adding more once I add a little documentation to them.
Taken from the site's publicity....
"What's the difference between SharePaper and other software sites?
Many software sites offer impressive amounts of programs to download.
Both high and low quality software. SharePaper, however, reviews and
rates (on a scale from 1 to 5) the best software only - never risk your
wasting time downloading crap again! You'll also find tips, game cheats
and lots of software related links here."

"(at my site) are some DOS programs I wrote, free of charge. They meet specific
needs I have. Each is the actual EXE file, and there is no installation
process. Documentation exists as an option within each program. Rather
than attach a description file with each, descriptions can be read here.
Invoke each program with /? as an argument for brief help.
"Make regular visits here. Programs are updated and new ones added. If you
have a problem with any program, or would like to suggest an improvement,
email me at email@example.com with your comments. I will get back to
you as soon as possible.
"David G. McDivitt assumes no responsibility nor liability for any
use of these programs.
"In the interest of keeping the DOS shareware industry in general, and our
little segments of it in particular alive, Lindsay Wells and I have
created a list of shareware authors and download sites which deal either
exclusively, or almost exclusively with DOS-based shareware software."
Shareware search engine, and services for shareware authors
The following claims to host the most comprehensive list of each day's new
Internet software releases, all free to download. There is also a good
search engine, and links to many others, including 'FILEZ' which is worth
a visit if you're after shareware.
The following gives information about freeware
and shareware Turbo Pascal programs:
"Some Useful Programs (and some less so!)
