As folks following along in my last blog entry know, I broke my leg/ankle in December, which affected app updates and site updates for a while. I wanted to post a quick update on where I'm at with recovery for folks who've been asking.

Greetings fellow Portable Appers. I wanted to give everyone a heads up that there will be a slowdown in new and updated apps for a few days. I'm going into surgery for a broken leg/ankle due to a fall on an icy sidewalk here in NYC. The surgery isn't suppose to be too bad, maybe an hour and a half. Recovery will take a couple months. I have to run as they're taking me earlier than expected. If something happens to me, there are contingency plans in place. I'll update as soon as I can.
I wanted to make a quick blog post today to remind everyone of the importance of being an organ donor. As some long-time users know, I donated a kidney to my father back in 2000. 13 years ago today, as a matter of fact. So, I know the importance of living donor organ donation first hand.
First things first, there's a new version of BYOND out. It's been out for a few weeks actually but the auto-update function of the previous version never asked to update to it and I hadn't gotten around to manually updating it and uploading the new installer.
I really have no clue where I'm supposed to be putting the new version links to update the directory listing with so I'll just put it here.
Twitter Account Change, @PortableApps for new apps, stories, big updates. @PortableAppsAll for everything
We wanted to take a minute and let everybody know that we're splitting up our twitter account into two accounts. Now that we have over 300 apps, pushing every app update announcement to Twitter makes the channel a bit too much of a firehose, too much for some Twitter fans. And the volume will only increase as we keep adding apps. So, we've decided to split things up into two Twitter accounts.
ReleasesThese packages have been given official releases here at PortableApps.com. I may or may not be the current maintainer but I was among the original packagers.
With a few days off sick for a throat/chest infection I don't have much to do but scour Sourceforge, play games, and make a few of the more interesting ones portable (in between bouts of coughing, sleeping, and feeling like my chest is going to explode and drive my concrete-filled skull through the wall). Thus the recently added dev tests of I Have No Tomatoes and Pentobi, with hopefully more to come.
PortableApps.com Status Update (2012-11-16): Hurricane Sandy Impact, New Apps, 12.0 Schedule, Donations, Site Status
