Preserving ancient history
Some things age better than others, but we believe in preserving our old content and discussions, even if only as historical artifacts. This section provides a home for pages that are no longer timely or relevant.
The history of DonationCoder
Trying to Be a Good CitizenIn the beginning, I was only interested in downloading as much free software as possible :) And I was getting all sorts of warez and so on. But, as I matured in my career, I saw that ripping off software or music or video was generally wrong. (I didn't always stop doing it though!) Anyway, when I find a software that I like (Project URL Snooper), now I try to support the developer. I'm currently unemployed at the moment (I got downsized last year) so I'm still trying to be generous to developers who depend on donations for all or part of their living.
This page colllects some old historical / legacy pages that we felt were too out of date and too idiosyncratic to migrate over from the older version of our website.
