I'm not saying this is what I expect of you. Just something you can consider
an option while the reality of dealing with a less than perfect me. If you
use Beyond Compare and my incremental source releases, it is often very easy
to identify fixes from one sub-release to the next. You may consider looking
at some of the source changes pertaining to bugs. This is often an excellent
way to see just what I am up to. Usually, bug fixes don't amount to much
code so you could take a fix from a later version and manually put it in an
older version you have standardized on.

Just some ideas...

Meanwhile, my workstation is pretty much back together again. I got nailed
by a virus (nimda) cause I was a dummy and didn't get my IIS 4 fully patched
on a test machine I had. That damn virus crawls over you LAN too. Needless
to say, I've had a mess on my hands the last couple days. Fortunately, no
critical data was lost.
