APDL make their PD catalogue available for free download

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 14:15, 25/3/2010 | , ,
 
APDLAPDL, long-time distributor of Public Domain and not-so Public Domain software, have taken the next logical step from distributing their PD/freeware collection on floppy disc or CD and have begun distributing it online instead. Apart from the obvious advantage to the end-user of being able to access the software immediately, APDL have also decided to forgoe charging any nominal download fees, making the archive truly free.
 
Of course the age of much of the software is likely to make its relevance somewhat limited (especially if it's not 32bit compatible, or even StrongARM compatible) - but by making the archive available free of charge APDL have given Acorn preservation enthusiasts a big helping hand, and for that this move should be applauded.
 
APDL point out that not all the software from their PD/freeware catalogue has found its way online yet, so some patience may be necessary if your favourite bit of software is missing.

Well ... I don't suppose TIB logs IPs of posts? or has the more general logs?

Edit for great spelling

Are you going to tell us what's going on, or are we simply going to have to watch the drama unfold?

I think the person who left himself logged in (or his log in details available/useable) on a computer accessible to someone else is the one that actually needs a slap. tongue

I mean just ask that person that tried to revive Acorn, what an idiot he was.
Please, let's not try and blame your disorganisation and lack of research on anyone but yourself.
Chocky, stop being a cunt.
You know what happens to cunts.
