So I thought I'd try to get the word out about the wonderful and free RD Tabs by submitting it to a few more software download sites. I hit TUCOWS. (Remember when they were popular? You know, back in '98?) Anyway, I finished the submission and this is the message I got.
There are 8493 program adds currently in the queue.

Whoa, there, horsey! 1701 days? That's like over FOUR years! No wonder most of the software on there is so out of date... And I thought download.com's one month turn around time was bad (they JUST approved RD Tabs 2.0.8). Of course, as you can see up there, I can expedite the process by PAYING them. Like free software generates dispoable income. I mean I don't expect them to jump over hurdles here, but 4.5 YEARS? 90 days is more reasonable.
So I thought about it for a minute and realized they at 1701 days, they are only processing 4-5 programs PER DAY. Holy smokes! How many people work there? I mean I could do that in an hour on my own.
What a racket... I won't be complaining about download.com taking five weeks any more (and here I thought that was sluggish). Apparently that's incredibly good turn-around time for no payment... Even if they do add typos into the description that I didn't type in. (Haven't they heard of cut'n'paste?)
