I for one am mighty grateful for the actual usefulness of IMageDisk and want to just through my .02 cents into the hat. It's a shame that your recent 'extra' efforts weren't/aren't properly acknowledged, and that the follow-through from the other side hasn't +happened.
Still, please regard me as an appreciative user of IMageDisk. In recent months, I have processed nearly 450 floppies from my old MS-DOS days, as well as a set of CP/M and other development tools for my quite obscure, but not particularly noteworthy, Novell Data Systems 2010, a Z80A-based machine. I was becoming very, very nervous about the stability of those old NDS 2010 diskettes (not used since c.1982), and breathed a huge sigh of relief when I got all of those floppies imaged and burned to CD-ROM.
Unfortunately, I've just finished my 'imaging project' using IMD 1.16, so I don't have much to test with 1.17. Still, my hand is extended to you for producing, *and maintaining*, such a useful tool for vintage collectors. Many thanks!
