    Re: Fun with DOS.

    Nice collection but Note ths:
    If someone was looking for list of Dos Commands, he would search, see this in the list and skip it just because it says "Fun" with Dos, Not something like List of Dos Commands, or something. Make sure you name it right to the content inside.
    :) Looking forward for more...
