Ok, so I'm going through the ASP NGs when I see this post in a thread that I'm reading and I take a double-take.

NO_SPAMsupport@veig...

The from column cuts off the rest, but I think to myself, "Sounds familiar..." At the end I read a name I recognize, then come back here to check. Sure as guns, it's Veign.

So, is anyone else in the ASP here or post in any of their public forums?

Just curious. It's a small world.

@Veign, I'll likely contact you in a few months about your PAD post there. Wink

Cheers!

I kind of asked about this earlier.

Anytime.  I run a very large PAD Database repository at PadDatabase.com and even wrote my own custom PAD Processing class (PHP).

You'd be surprised at how far the members of this forum reach.

(also, I'm not a member of the ASP just watch their public newgroups because of my interest in the PAD spec)

@tinjaw

So, did you join? I posted in that thread, but didn't see anything about what you'd decided on.

@mouser

I'm a bit surprised there. I find it's a pretty darn good value. There's stuff in the NGs there that you would NEVER see posted publicly in a forum like this that anyone can read. The membership is filtered and checked out, so Stephen Huff isn't in there. Wink

Can I ask why you didn't find it worth renewing?

@Veign

If you're interested, there's a lot more stuff about PAD in the private groups (asp.committee.pad_spec). At the moment the next PADGen beta is available. It's a fantastic improvement over the existing one.

I'm hoping to get time to create a download site (not a PADkit one) and get some extra value in there unlike all the PADkit clones. Not sure if I'll have time as it's a big job. I'll talk to you though when I've got it going. (First I've got another project centered around PAD that I'd like to get done -- hopefully in May.)

My partner and I decided it is too early for use to benefit from a membership. We will join in a year or so. We are just getting off the ground and have plenty to do that is straight forward.

ASP seems like a really good resource for anyone in the shareware business, and the historical documents were well worth joining initially for me.

But while I think the shareware community is a great thing and deserves support, I don't feel like I quite fit into it, and actually DC is my one real community online, so I guess I just figured I'll focus all my energy here.

i joined last november. It's quite useful, but newsgroup members post way too much information. Hey, it's only $100, and the way the dollar is nowadays, that's peanuts smiley

it's funny to see that many ASP members don't have a clue about programming, or at least that's the way it comes across. But then again good programmers and good businessmen don't necessarily mix!

There are quite a few people that only do marketing or sales in the ASP, and some of them know zero about programming.

If you want real gear heads and geeks, check the .technical newsgroup in there.

I actually just renewed my membership this morning as a supporting member.
