Shell Extension City Freeware Website Comeback
« on: May 27, 2013, 11:34:29 AM »
When DonationCoder.com opened it's doors in March of 2005, one of the sites that was most welcoming and supportive of us was Shell Extension City.  Many of our early and most enthusiastic supporters found us through the Shell City website.

Shell City was one of the best places to discover new small freeware tools coded by small developers.  It's always been a no-nonsense style site -- the front page just lists short paragraphs about newly discovered freeware with a link to the author's page.  Part of it's appeal was that a small developer could email bob the site admin and tell him about their software, and if Bob thought it was worth passing along, up would go a nice paragraph about your tool.



Anyway, throughout the years Shell Extension City has gone through some quiet periods, but today a post on the forum has announced they are attempting a comeback! Yay!

You can read the relaunch announcement: Here.

Sounds like from the relaunch announcement that there will probably be a few bumps in the road as they get the old content and structure cleaned up, So make sure you go check them out regularly.

Excellent readability. Very relaxing for our poor eyes usually tortured by white bright backgrounds, insane color-matchings, very thin characters.

It was through Shell Extension City that I came to DonationCoder. Daily Rotation's also rather good — a sister site.

Hi. my first post. I remember looking at Shell Extension City way back years ago, while looking for simple ways to get some benefits for my computer. [and told my computer savvy mates about it, to save them the effort of reinventing the wheel, so to speak]
I came across your site while looking for an effective screen capture that I could control. Thanks heaps for 'Screenshot Capture'
I enjoy all your info, and read thru it all; even tho I dont understand most of it; but I am picking up some usefull stuff.
Thanks for your work. :Thmbsup: Clem from Australia

I'm ecstatic! SEC was one of my almost daily visits. Glad to see it's back. :-*
