Well, life interferes - it's still on the list. I'm looking into maybe using Visual Basic 3 to make it, the reason being that the word on the street is VB3 produces some pretty good executables while VB4,5,6,etc. produce bloated ones with bigger runtime libraries, etc. It would be a 16-bit program but I'm not sure if that really matters, does it? Makes for better compatibility as it would work with Windows 3.1, 9x, XP, etc. all the way up to current 32-bit versions of Windows.
Including a built-in terminal and FTP server, though, would be the hardest part. There are some VBX extensions for VB3 that let you do TCP/IP sockets, so I have to dive into writing custom network code 😒
I would rather build this program with something else other than VB - specifically I'd really like to use Open Watcom, but there's no easy way to build a GUI app with OW.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
