Been working on a DVD version of TTCS OSSWIN, but too much activities occupying my time now.

  1. Hi, BillSmith….a DVD version will happen…its just the maintainence factor of maintaining a DVD and CD version concurrently without having data (software applications or webpages) duplicated which increases the work in updating.

    Right now, updating the CD is easy with a single compile script to generate the webpages for the CD. I’ll probably blog about how the CD is created soon.
