    I just happened to notice this 316f.new file in the F-prot for
    DOS package:
    ***********************************************
    Changes in version 3.16f

    3.16f is expected to be the last version of the DOS scanner.

    It includes some minor changes, such as scanning of WMF files.

    The total number of viruses and Trojans that are detected with version
    3.16f is somewhere over 286.200.
    ***********************************************
    It's been a fun trip, Frisk. Somehow, I hate to see it end.

    Sigh. Another one bites the dust...
    And so it goes.

    that sucks ass...

    i wonder if he'll ever make f-prot for windows (or some subset thereof)
    free for personal non-commercial use... then people who really do use
    dos or are affected by dos malware can continue using f-prot for dos
    secure in the knowledge that any threats they're likely to face are
    exceptionally old and well handled by this final release, and the rest
    of the world can move on to a product that has as appealing a licensing
    option as f-prot for dos had...
