So, is there any chance of an update to DOSFS any time soon? Once DOSFS can
handle modern-sized discs, that would definitely help me justify paying for
an upgrade. There are a handful of other enhancements and bug fixes that
might also tilt the balance in favour of an upgrade, but a modernised DOSFS
would be a major factor. Other improvements I'm keeping an eye out for: bug
fixes to Edit so that it handles large files better; PNG support for
ChangeFSI; various other Adjust-like enhancements; a few other minor things
that don't currently come to mind. USB 2.0 and the other 5.12+ goodies
aren't really worth it for me, yet.

Have you heard of the International Obfuscated Perl Code Competition? Each
contestant is shown ten Perl programs - five that have been written normally
and five that have been deliberately obfuscated. In order to win, you just
have to decide which is which.
