Software Sites Recommend Me.

Now that I’ve put up some new shareware programs on Source Forge, software sites have started to “recommend me”. They must be employing folks in a far off country to do some simple tests and an automatic virus scan and then put the page on the site. The problem is that I’m not sure they link back to the Source Forge site so that updates are evident to users.



These folks actually did a simple video tutorial showing the installation and use, although they didn’t do a view of the log file.

We’ll see if there is much confusion because they don’t point folks to SourceForge to get updates. I have tried to remember to update the About boxes with the URLs on SourceForge so folks can check for updates.
