h2. Format issues

h3. Issue 1

Strand SSF - have to convert to Ascii, using an unsupported and difficult to find Win 95 application called Showport. As far as I know the source code for that program is long gone.
If Strand hadn't written that before going bankrupt then a lot of people would have lost a lot of data.
