For starters I would like to point out that I personlly have ported Circle
to run under 95/NT without the use of MSVC. I uploaded the file to one of
the FTP sites and Talked to alex about it. the file should be named
circle.w95.port.txt This is a fairly simple patch that works. It lacks in
complexity but is very stable to my own experience.

I would like to request that this fact be made aware of in the FAQ if
possible and if the file is not on the FTP site I'll be happy to uplaod it
