One thing I have mentioned several times over the years is that
freelists does not even categories the Calmira list in their search.
You have to use google to find it.

I suspect that these days with fewer websites supporting win3 there
are even fewer discussions about win3 applications.

I wonder whether it is time to do one last archival website that
focuses on "Win3" OS and adds in stuff like Calmira etc.... as the
secondary subject.

Either that or get the latest Calmira up on Simtel... but even their
Win3 section will shrink to zero at some time.

There was some great activity around long file names but I think the
greatest loss for Calmira was that it never moved over to 'modding' a
basic level Win95 so that it could run with Calmira's advantages on
Win3 level machines....

Perhaps its time to join a wider community for Calmira and join in
with some "retro_windows" list... though today that is going to be
dominated by win9+ I suspect.

Eitherway it might be usefull if we list here any sites, we know of or
own, that feature Calmira related stuff as that would give us all the
chance to review and reflect on the next move.
