Dear plugin developers:
I have a hard time determining which of my plugins needs to be updated. For example, Vince has a later versions of SysUtils64.dll than I had when I reported to Rex what appeared as a KEYSTACK problem. It turned out to be the WaitWin command in my no longer current SysUtils64.dll. Updating solved the problem.
We should find a method that a single database (preferrably at jpsoft.com) would list the information for all of your products. Suggest using UTC, and including size, hash code (CRC32 or MD5), usability (platform, TC version), download URL, author and short description for each plugin. Once entered, the information should be modifiable only by the author; alternately, I am willing to maintain the reference data...

I have been thinking that maybe the best way to handle this is to create an wiki page somewhere that anyone can add/edit info about plugins. I don't know enough about Wikipedia to know if we could add an section at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Take_Command_Console and place the links there or if there is another free resource to create an wiki page with this info.
Actually, JP Software had its own wiki once upon a time. Sad to say, it received far more input from spammers than from anyone who actually cared about 4NT and Take Command. Rex put it out of its misery some years back.

I don't know which is worse:
  1. Spammers
  2. Software that claims to fix/improve your computer that does nothing.
  3. Good Software that have installers that have include crap from #2.
  4. Software that have uninstallers that try to trick you to not remove there crapware, or actually offer to install other software.
It seems that right now the internet sucks in a lot of ways, and miss the good old days of the internet.
