Preserving ancient history
Some things age better than others, but we believe in preserving our old content and discussions, even if only as historical artifacts. This section provides a home for pages that are no longer timely or relevant.
The history of DonationCoder
gHacks on DonationCoder.comThe Donation Coder website and community is special... because it is taking an approach that most other sites on the Internet does not take. Instead of relying on online advertisement to fund their projects they rely on donations from their community. Those donations are put into good use to pay for the server costs, websites and also some of the regular goodies that they throw at their users and members.
There are quite a few reasons why I like the Donation Coder. They do produce some fantastic programs that I use on a daily basis. But the software is only one aspect of the website. If you ever participated in their forum you might have realized how helpful they are. Just post an idea about a new software program and watch what happens. It is not seldom that you get a working piece of code after a few hours that does exactly what you wanted.
I personally have not donated before (shame on me) and I figured that I should do so before even starting this article. I suggest you do the same if you like Donation Coder software and have a few bucks to spare. It's money well spend. Rock on!
This page colllects some old historical / legacy pages that we felt were too out of date and too idiosyncratic to migrate over from the older version of our website.
