Deep Thought

Whenever tech writers say something is going to be the "next killer app," it increases the probability that the app will fade into obscurity.

TUCOWS: Long Past Their Prime

Remember when I posted this with the ridiculous TUCOWS wait time for free software submissions?  Well, it took a little less time (only 13 months, in fact), but here is what I got from them.

Dear author,

Thank you for submitting your software for distribution on www.tucows.com.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept your program at this time for the
following reason(s):

1)  The download file URL was unavailable.

Please resubmit your program once this issue has been resolved.

selected.  http://www.tucows.com">border="0">

Thank you for choosing Tucows.

Sincerely,

Awesome.  I have no idea what they are talking about.  RD Tabs is quite available from all the download links I know of.  Like I'm going to bother resubmitting to them after they screwed up.  Does anybody even visit that site anymore?  I probably get more evangelism for RD Tabs from misspelled searches than I ever would from TUCOWS.

I have a new slogan for them.  TUCOWS: The world's best directory of Windows 95 software.

That's about all it is good for nowadays.

Meanwhile, I just submitted 2.1.20 for download.com.  Based on their average turn-around, it should be there in a few weeks. :-) 

P.S. Please rate RD Tabs on download.com.  Be honest!
