The Glorious Return of Shell Extension City
« on: October 23, 2011, 11:50:06 PM »
Shell Extension City (or ShellCity.net) has a long and wonderful history as a site that posted updates about cool freeware.  It was one of the best places to discover new cool freeware tools.

Way back in 2005 during the first days of DonationCoder, I wrote an email to bob, the guy who ran Shell Extension City and told him about the site -- and in the weeks/month/years that followed, Shell Extension City was always super supportive of DonationCoder software, and the mission of this site.

And I know that many of the early DC members learned about us from Shell Extension City -- and many of them donated -- which is a testament to the community that hung out at Shell Extension City.

Well, the ShellCity.net site has been quiet for a while now, but they've just posted an announcement that they are getting back to regular freeware updates.. Hurray!!!  :Thmbsup:

Yay! :)

It was a sad day when I pulled it off my RSS reader.

Maybe with a saner ( i.e. not daily) update schedule it won't overwhelm Bob so much.

I'm always amazed at the people who run a website solo yet somehow manage an "updated daily" schedule. Especially if they have a full time job or family responsibilites. Few who try ever make it past the six month mark. Which is understandable.

Nice to see Shell Extension City is back.  :Thmbsup:

I found DC through ShellEx (some might consider this a black mark against it).

Glad to see the site up again, it was one of the best places to find freeware AND read the latest tech news (via DailyRotation).

I had forgotten just how useful a thing Shell Extension City is.

Just this morning I noticed something in the feed that was the perfect solution to a problem that cropped up yesterday.

This is not the first time I've had that happen with this website.

Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome back Shell Extension City! :Thmbsup:
