is a program from 2010 really still 'new'?

I am aware that someone is thinking the below quoted line may attract some new visitor's attention because it is indicating that coders are around. But really? I am embarrassed every time my eyes caches the line! If I go to a site and notice a headline hasn't been updated for almost 3 years, I am already about to leave that site!

Sites often get these little chores that sorta slip by for ages. the main board "scraper" that collects the recent posts makes it obvious there's activity going on. I find it funny, not a reason to ditch the site.

The word new was meant to convey not that the programs were recent but that they were newly created for the event.. I've changed it do custom to clear up any confusion.

Yay for Custom! Custom can be from any year! New Apps from 1957! New Apps for the New Millenium! NANM. It's like the New School - eventually the name grows old!  :o

Founded in 1919, so coming up (sorta) soon on its 100 year anniversary! Yay New!
