the support issue was IBM also. It isn't much different that the early days
of Windows NT. There were plenty of software companies making software for
3.1 and 95, 98, etc that would not support NT because they did not want to
spend the money for testing. Most of it worked just fine, but I did have
conversations with companies about the no support policy.

As for Traveling Software, I don't have source code unfortunately. I did
work on the DOS version and created the remote control TSRS. I also tweaked
and improved the serial and parallel protocols back in 1992-97. Let me try
and track something down for you. I may still be able to contact a few people.

best regards, Steve
