A brief message from the webmaster of this site before the downloads:

OK, I know that much of the world has given up on the concept of shareware. Perhaps it was simply an experiment which has had its day and should now be shelved. I however am not of that opinion. It is only through shareware that specialized applications (such as the ones on this page) will be created. No company will ever design them, as the potential market is simply too small. The only way that applications like these will continue to be made is by registering the programs and supporting the shareware concept. Now none of these programs have a time lockout feature, and most give you access to all the functionality of the program in the shareware version. Try them out, if they are useful, tell the programmer, and at least seriously consider registering. That way improvements to the software can be made, and everyone benefits.

(((This message is supported by programmers of shareware all over the world)))

This area contains the complete archives of our Association and is a work in progress.
