So I thought its time to release some of my old stuff, I wrapped it in an installer.

Inside my installer;

https://bloodycactus.com/files/bcactus_install.zip

so the installer doesnt install the zips (I grabbed my 00index.txt off my local ftp), it installs the utils/apps etc.
(This version of the installer is output to stick on 360kb disks if you want to do a physical media install, or just unzip it into a directory and run install.exe)

Lots of this is really old, and I still use a lot of it today on my machines (my uansi driver, umb driver on my tandy, my packer, sickview etc).
Some of this I recompiled with newer open watcom but made no code changes, a couple of things I tweaked but didnt change
anything else (versions/dates etc its not worth tracking).

Some things (like amber) I had like 50 copies laying around in various states, so I dont know if the one in here is the last/most recent
or not but it seems ok. Some things are still missing (my spreadsheet uCalc and programmers text editor and some other stuff).

Some things in here are designed for 8088/XT, a lot of 386+ etc.
