How do I put software that I have gotten from other sites to this place?
I am going to put the original author's name for that program.
Since those programs are great.

Hi booksbuggy!
Welcome to DC.

Why don't you just link to the original site?

You really should link as the Author may want to track downloads and want to control the versions that are around.  By linking you will ensure that most current version is always downloaded.

Most of the files i downloaded are uploaded at the freeware sites.
So i think those authors does want others to use them.

yeah and the linking site part I am probably going to put it in another Chat Post because there are so many.
