HOME   |   Software   |   mGUI       asHost :: NEXT




asHost has been a "secret" for a while ...
... originally it was meant for my own personal use, i.e. avoid using the mouse ... it has since evolved into a test-bed for mGUI, plus it contains some rather "strange" tools ... ;-)
This documentation is by no means complete, and only contains some minimal information.

Current Status: asHost v1.2.7, 09 Aug 2009
