You got my full attention at "HIMEM.SYS was the configuration that stood between me and the latest PC games" ;) Hours of tinkering to load that damn Strike Commander!

Yeah, mention of himem.sys gave me some serious flashbacks.

It was also my first bout of reverse engineering. I ended up writing a full screen, boot time, fully interactive config.sys editor for DOS 5 to make things simpler to swap around.
