I'm on about the likes of the utils by Lerm and G.A. Bobker.  I've got a few, but am interested in any others that you may have.  Other companies were also doing similar utils, such as Kobrahsoft.

Also interested in any of the 'support leaflets' that you could buy / get with a club membership that the above two firms offered.  They would list the methods required to get the latest titles into a slow-loading / microdrive-compatible format.

I've got a few (list to follow) but I'm after any others of this type.
